Another highlight of the conference was to introduce virtual online presentation for participants that could not make it in person. We believe today’s sophisticated digital platforms are enabling virtual environments that simulate the benefits of real events, and attendees are beginning to shift to accessing subject matter experts and industry networking online. One of our virtual participants said “This is even better! I don’t have to deal with the time conflict between the conference and my work.” Some stated “I can’t believe it was remarkably effective – not only did it save travel expenses and time for me, but it turned out that the virtual conference had an advantage over in-person conferences in a way.”
When asked the reason for attending the ICBCE’16 conference, here are the leading reasons participants cited.
