Online and virtual meetings are becoming more popular in the event industry. They help deliver content without wasting money on location, travel and lodging. You can participate in the luxury of your own home.
But, face to face meetings are still very important to many businesses. Nothing can replace the immediate rapport you can establish with someone in person. Over 83% of businesses believe that personal relationships are key to doing business successfully.
