Virtual Conferencing = Smart Conferencing
PASA is delighted to announce that conferences for the remainder of 2020 will mainly be delivered virtually,using smart online event platforms.
This is not a decision that we have rushed into lightly. Like many, I was sceptical about the ability of virtual events to deliver the same level of learning, networking and interaction that you experience at a physical event. However, a few months of operating in the socially distanced world of Covid19 has completely changed that view.
I now believe that in most cases the learning and networking experiences will be so much better with the following advantages:
- Ease of attendance – Grab a coffee and join the conference live from your own desk. This is very much like attending a physical conference, with a reception area, main stage and breakout session rooms, networking areas and trade show.
- The need for travel budget is eliminated – no more justifying inter-state travel.
- More efficient use of time – attend for part or parts of the days that are most relevant to you. Virtual conference days will be shorter than for physical ones at between four – five hours (as opposed to eight – nine at a physical event). Days will include dedicated times for mainstage sessions,breakout sessions, meet-ups and networking, exploring the trade show, and refreshments.
- FREE buyer delegate attendance – whereas previously conference tickets were available to be purchased, our new virtual model enables buyer delegates to attend free of charge.
Please see the below schedule of conferences for the July to December 2020 period and feel free to contact me should you have any queries or questions, or would like to get involved in any of the events as a speaker or sponsor.
I look forward to seeing you at one (or more) of our future events.
