Virtual Events Platforms

Alumni relations has gone virtual! From Facebook to Instagram to Twitter and beyond, interactions among alumni and with the institution are through an electronic device. Meetings and events have to respond to the demands of the times as well. There are an increasing number of options for holding virtual meetings and events that are (almost) as engaging as being in a room together. Virtual events have a huge advantage in eliminating the need for travel and reducing the amount of time needed to be a participant or attendee.

Here are some of the latest options for virtual events:
