Webcast Abstract

To attend a face-to-face conference, you travel to a conference site. With an online ("virtual") conference, the conference site comes to you. Keynote addresses, breakout sessions, exhibit halls and live webcasts are all components of these meeting events. Virtual conferences can take place in both real time (synchronously) and any time (asynchronously)—they can extend your face-to-face annual meeting or be entirely online.

In this educational webcast, Ashleigh Hodge of Abt Associates discusses the business and production aspects of their USAID SHOPS e-conference series.

The case study The USAID SHOPS 2-day technical conferences attract hundreds of attendees in over fifty (50) countries worldwide. The conferences contain a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions led by worldwide experts. Recent conference topics are Expanding Access to Finance for Health and Integrating Zinc into Diarrhea Management. All the online presentations are compliant with American Disabilities Act (ADA) Section 508 for computer users with disabilities.
