They’ll also look at the tremendous growth and interest in ‘hybrid events’ – meetings and conferences which extend traditional physical in-person events with a compelling virtual online component. Presentations will include Case Studies, Product/Technology Demonstrations, Best Practices, Workshops and 1-on-1s with top providers, users and analysts.

“On February 22nd and 23rd, Virtual Edge Summit speakers will share what they have learned about how virtual events can boost visibility, impact and ROI from traditional programs,” said Michael Doyle, executive director of the Virtual Edge Institute, producers of the summit. “Though there are companies that have gone 100% virtual with their outreach, the majority are looking at a mix of virtual and hybrid and the Virtual Edge Summit is the only event serving this important market need. We’re providing a real-world look, not a fantasy tour, directly from today’s top virtual event providers and users.”

To demonstrate the power of ‘hybrid’ meeting models, Virtual Edge Summit 2010 will be held in-person (at the Santa Clara Convention Center) and virtually at the VirtualU and on other virtual event platforms. There will be actual presentations from virtual presenters to the physical event as well as streams from the live event into virtual worlds all with live interaction with attendees. Hear from these top experts in ‘hybrid’ and 100% virtual events: Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Stanford University, SAP, Disney, United Business Media, Intel, Ziff Davis, and more). “We’re excited to demonstrate how event attendees from a company can interact between the physical and virtual event, giving them ideas on how they can use the model to support multiple onsite and remote attendees from the same company at their events,” Doyle said.
