“The best thing about the virtual conference was the ease and convenience of it. I could listen to a session and still take care of work issues as they arose. I could also listen after work or in the evenings from the comfort of my home.

Our whole department was able to attend virtually where we wouldn’t all have been able to attend the conference together.

I would tell a colleague to attend virtually if they couldn’t afford to physically attend the conference because you can still learn so much from so many great online learning experts at truly a nominal fee.”
