There is no doubt business meetings will never go away. What has gone away, however, is the requirement that people spend the time and money traveling from place to place for each and every meeting.

Thanks to technology and virtual meetings, many people are forgetting about hauling briefcases and other stuff on cramped, low end airlines to attend stuffy conventions. Instead, a great number of companies are opting for online events for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is the cost savings.

Fact is, when I don’t have to schlep my stuff all across creation - I can attend more webinars and conferences than I ever could afford to go to before. Also, getting approval to take just a few hours to attend these meetings is never an issue. Leaving town for several days, however, was always an issue. In fact, I don’t even want to think about how many conventions because of that.

The other great thing about virtual meeting technology is these gatherings are more superior. One of the main reasons for events and meetings is to network and exchange information. Virtual event and meeting technology facilitate that in one fell swoop. In fact, I can make more valuable connections at virtual meetings than I ever could walking on foot.

Since virtual meetings are so easy to schedule and accessible, more entrepreneurs and business people are able to take advantage of them. Rather than drop a mil for sales and other training - it just make sense to hold these classes online to the extent possible. Besides the cost of the event, these firms also don’t have to pay as many trainers as before.

We’ll always need to go to some stuff in person. In those cases, firms like Davinci offer conference and office space of various sizes with everything needed to hold productive meetings. However, the bottom line is that virtual meetings make it possible for businesses to grow faster and more efficiently than ever before. Besides, not only do I love virtual meetings - but so do my feet!
