Divided by geographies, united by technology.
It is 25th June 2019, just another day for Lyn, an HR professional of a leading bank in Asia. She sits at some corner of her office in Singapore and opens her laptop to get on with her work. That’s when she gets a reminder and realizes that today is going to be slightly different. She looks forward to the day as she is excited to meet, interact and learn from fellow practitioners, senior talent and business leaders and global thought leaders from across the globe on her laptop.
Beyond virtual learning sessions, webcasts and video calls, technology is helping replicate the entire conference experience on laptops, desktops, and mobile devices. From expo center, lounge to networking and learning space, every element of a physical conference gets translated into a virtual conference through the internet.
A virtual conference is much more than webinars. It is a hybrid conference that allows remote attendees to access live onsite sessions and events from their computers, laptops and mobile phones from anywhere and everywhere.
One example of such a conference is People Matters Talent Tech Evolve Virtual Conference that in its first edition, last year, hosted about 10,000 HR and business leaders, HR service providers and thought leaders from across the globe. Now the conference is back again to stir the conversation on how talent technology is enabling businesses to create a more efficient, agile, fast and productive workforce.
But before we talk about the conference, here are some ways that make virtual conferences an interesting and convenient medium of learning & networking:
All you need to attend a virtual conference is a laptop, internet connection and login details that you would have created while registering for the conference for free. No registration fees, no flight costs, and no accommodation fees. You get the opportunity to meet and learn from thought leaders across the globe at no or low cost.
Learning at convenience
Learners can access all the sessions live from anywhere they are in the world. Without having to travel to a nearby expo center or flying to another city or country, they can log in and be a part of the experience as per their convenience. Learners can watch the keynote sessions and panel discussions of the experts on their laptops or mobile screens from anywhere they wish to (given that they have decent internet connectivity).
Attendees in a physical conference often have to walk and move in exhibition rooms and corridors searching for nametags and tracking down industry leaders with whom they want to speak. In a virtual conference, these physical barriers disappear. Attendees have immediate access to fellow attendees, as well as speakers and exhibitors, with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Grab on the opportunity to learn and network conveniently at almost zero cost at the upcoming People Matters Talent Tech Evolve Virtual Conference 2019 to be held on 27th June 2019 on a laptop, desktop or mobile near you. Click here to know more.
