Why attend a Virtual Conference?

In today’s corporate environment of diminishing budgets, ever squeezing margins, and limited time, it isn’t easy to justify the cost of attending a physical conference, or to take time out of the office. Travel and Education budgets are tight, and it’s becoming more difficult to get approval, or justify the need to attend in-person events and conferences. The economy and convenience of email, Facebook, Skype, and other social media contribute to the shift toward virtual business encounters and away from traditional face-to-face meetings.

That’s why we decided to create Health Slam as a virtual event – to bring you fresh and insightful content direct to your home, office or mobile device – giving you all the value of a real event, without the significant price tag associated with an in-person event.

Here are the top reasons why Virtual.
