8 Neat Ways to Utilize Virtual Events
Tracking attendees—and letting them find one another.
If you were searching for a friend, colleague, or contact at a regular conference, you would have to peek into each individual room. Virtual events, on the other hand, can allow users to see instantly a roster of who's in each room. The Seattle Code Camp, an annual event for local developers, teamed up with Booth Virtual Events to create the 2011 event virtually. Boost provided Rank Panels, which reveal which sessions have the highest ratings and attendance in order to allow attendees to peek inside each room, so they can better decide what to attend. Features like these are particularly useful when a conference has many events occurring simultaneously.
