    • Webinars / virtual education and the exhibition industry Paul Woodward Taipei 3rd March 2010
    • 3rd March 2010 2
    • We are at a very early stage in the evolution of these technologies / forms of interaction… There is no reason that they shouldn’t succeed in the medium-term, but much of what we see today will not succeed. 3rd March 2010 3
    • Multiple channels • Dedicated webinar software • Podcasts – Video – Audio • Simple slide sharing • Social networks • Fully-fledged virtual meetings • ‘Mash-ups’ of 2 or more of these 3rd March 2010 4
    • None yet seems entirely to do the job effectively… …particularly for an industry structured as the exhibition industry is 3rd March 2010 5
    • Dedicated webinar software 3rd March 2010 6
    • …on the way there 3rd March 2010 7
    • But… • Heavily reliant on professionalism of presenters. – No lengthy, empty pauses with rustling papers – Well-rehearsed presentations – without the distraction of a live audience, a poorly-rehearsed presentation is even more painful than usual. • Ideally needs several levels of activity to engage audience. – Built-in polling and interactive discussion tools. – Parallel Twitter streams for more public sessions. – Other? • Normally needs to be available well beyond the initial life of the event. 3rd March 2010 8
    • Life after the event 3rd March 2010 9

    • Exhibitor training 3rd March 2010 19
    • 3rd March 2010 20
    • 3rd March 2010 21
    • Lessons from all this • What works – Top speakers – Very professional production standards – Backed by a great ‘brand’ – Highly dispersed audience • Seems to be working for exhibitor training in the US • But what of really international audiences with multiple time zones to deal with? • What that means – Budgets – Backed by large potential audience – This is not a DIY business – Medium-sized companies can probably not do this by themselves. • Role for associations: national and international. • Role for effective businesses. 3rd March 2010 22
