Will virtual events cannibalize live events? If people can attend your in-person meeting via remote access (as in a hybrid meeting) will that cut into on-site attendance? What's wrong with just sticking a camera in the back of your meeting for remote viewers?  What exactly is a virtual event anyway and why would you want one? This class breaks it all down in an easy to understand manner. You'll learn when hybrid or virtual events make sense and when they don't. And if you're going to host one, we'll go over best practices to insure it's a success.
