What is an Online Event?
Online events, also known as virtual events, are just that: Events with a specific date, time, and agenda but which take place in a virtual space rather than a physical one.
Virtual events typically offer both live and on-demand presentations and, in some cases, give people the opportunity to interact in a web-based environment.
- Webinar: A single online session which can take the form of a speaker presentation, panel, etc.
- Online Event (a.k.a. Virtual Event): A series of online sessions, which may or may not include interactive elements (such as audience Q&A).
- Online Conference or Virtual Summit: A more extensive virtual event that mimics many of the qualities of an in-person event, including networking opportunities, virtual booths, and more.
