Conferences these days tend to be done on the internet. The time savings aspect alone makes this a simple choice. In the past, to have a conference you needed to have a physical location with amenities to accommodate 100 to 1000 people. The cost to have this type of function was massive. Depending on the budget, these events could cost tens of thousand of dollars.
Today using the platforms listed below, you can stay in your office or living room and attend a conference that has worldwide attendance. The companies listed below provide the necessary platform and software to accommodate your conference needs.
We have attended many of these seminars with this company. They provide a good service at a fair price.
Skype is a vidoe chat service that has been around for years. It has gotten better with age. We find it is better for small groups than large (10 or less). You can talk to a person on the other side of the world almost as if they are sitting across the table from you.
Google Hangouts is a popular place to have small gatherings. It has the same feeling of a Skype chat area. This once again makes it good for small groups but larger gatherings need a better platform.
A good reputation for holding medium sized gatherings. Well worth looking at and price comparable.
