On May 8, more than 1000 executives attended Elearning! magazine’s first Elearning! Summit virtual conference and trade show.

“The participation level was phenomenal, and an indication that executives need event options that are flexible, comprehensive, participative and available from their desktops,” says Elearning! publisher and event host Catherine Upton, who also notes that companies save 1000 pounds of CO2 emissions by attending a virtual event rather than a real such event.

“The event was highly interactive and very cool,” notes Chris Howard, vice president of Bersin & Associates. “This format is at the cutting edge of event management, and Bersin & Associates was happy to be part of it.”

The typical visitor stayed in the event two hours and visited most of the booths. Exhibiting companies reported up to 473 visitors during the live session, more than 79 downloads, 48 products viewed and 28 Web links engaged.

“We had three sales representatives working the virtual booth simultaneously from across the country,” observes Todd Nelson, director of marketing for Blackboard, Inc. “Before the end of the event day, we sold products resulting in a 10x return on investment.”

The May event is available on-demand for free at  through August 7.
