Have you attended a virtual conference? They are the next best thing to being there!
Many of us will be headed to Minneapolis at the end of the month to attend the annual AAM Conference, but what about our colleagues who cannot take the time or don't have the budget to attend? Well, there is an app for that, not really but I couldn't resist using that line. For the last few years AAM has hosted a virtual conference for those of us unable to make it to the physical venue. Taking place completely on-line and webcast live from Minneapolis.
Now, wherever you are, there you are (again, couldn't resist.) The virtual conference will feature speakers that will share insights from their own experience, and facilitate discussions with a community of participants. The virtual conference is produced by LearningTimes who is known worldwide for the richness of content that their programs provide, as well as their warm and human sensibility.
The virtual conference doesn't let you attend the shippers party or visit any of the local museums, but it provides the opportunity to participate in some of the programs. After all, isn't that why we go?
