Elevate Your Virtual Event Conversation By Attending The Virtual Edge Summit

Chicago, August 17, 2015 – The Virtual Edge Institute [VEI] will be hosting their annual Virtual Edge Summit on September 17, 2015. This annual, day-long event delivers senior-level education for both meetings professionals who produce hybrid and/or digital events and those who desire to learn more about this advancing discipline.

Online virtual participants will have the opportunity to radically reduce their learning curve and get the latest industry insights and education.

Sessions on tap this year include:

  • Insights from the C-Suite: How to have "the talk" about going digital
  • Making Money with Digital Events
  • Value Beyond Monetization
  • Scalable Success: Smaller organizations doing big things
  • How To: Choosing the Right Technology For Your Virtual Events


Amanda Marijanovic, Chief Creative Officer at INNERACTION, will return as the host and session moderator and will be joined by our industry leading presenters. You’ll hear from the AAO’s Debra Rosencrance, Microsoft’s Scott Lum, HIMSS’s Mary Beth Micucci, AICPA’s Todd Helton and IEEE’s David Stankiewicz; just to name a few. See the complete schedule here.

Summit attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to .5 CEUs [5 Clock Hours] that can help them advance towards their Digital Event Strategist [DES] or Certified Meeting Professional [CMP] certification.

The Virtual Edge Summit is a valuable educational opportunity for both meetings professionals and digital event producers. VEI knows the demand for hybrid meetings has been exponentially building momentum over the past few years - to the point remote attendees now expect to be able to join online if they are unable to travel. Attending the Summit will help participants conquer their virtual event learning curve and put them on the path to successfully produce virtual events for their organization.

The Virtual Edge Summit is sponsored by Meetings + Conventions Calgary; the leading supporter for the hybrid/digital event community. Learn more and register for the event here.
