Boost your business and grow your international network – 5 benefits of attending a virtual event

Written by Staff Writer

November 16, 2020

Attending a virtual event dramatically enhances both your professional and personal development, as well as providing you with long term tools and skills. The focused nature of learning at a conference allows you to get the information you need from experienced experts in real time.

  1. You will network with peers and thought leaders

Grow your  global network with likeminded people and industry peers. Bringing together people from different geographical areas who share a common purpose for transformation, this is a great way to meet new people in your field, together with people from a wide range of backgrounds, whom you may not encounter at your home, workplace or institution. Build your professional network, get noticed via your contributions in audience participation comments and meet people whom you haven’t connected with in a while.

  1. You will expand your knowledge and find solutions to your problems

You will engage with thought leaders and exciting new developments in your field. These could be new techniques, new types of equipment, unpublished data, or learning from industry leaders whom you may not have been to reach up until now. You will get the opportunity to talk to these people one-on-one about what they are working on, and they may even give you advice on “how” to enhance your own work. You have the opportunity to ask presenters questions about their work and the rationale behind it – which you can’t do when reading journal articles.

  1. Learning beyond your field of interest

Learn things outside your field, about other areas of research in your discipline during the many sessions for professional development and career advice.  Attendees are united by common goals of information sharing and coming together to ensure sustainable transformation.

  1. All slides and learning material provided

Don’t worry about missing out on information or  having to choose between parallel session The events are recorded and you will receive full access to the event presentations No need for taking notes, so you can watch and re watch as many presentations as you like, Find solutions with groups of people in breakouts, collaborate with other participants.

  1. Connect with your new network during and after the event

The connections you make an effort to create and nurture can become exponentially stronger when you do get the chance to meet in-person. Events are meant to foster cross-geo, cross-functional learning and break down knowledge silos. Q&As, chats with other attendees and reaching out to participating partners to ask about their solutions are great ways to find out new tips to put into action right away.
