Back in December, Unified Workspace Community sponsored the VMUG December Virtual Event, and I’ll be the first to admit I was sceptical about how valuable it would be. In fact, I was initially confused – I’d never even heard of virtual events prior to this, and I expected them to be only a step up from a webinar.
Luckily, I work with an excellent agency that also manages VMUG events and had confidence that this would be a great sponsorship opportunity. Indeed it was! This ended up being the perfect time to sponsor a virtual event; the current global crisis we’re all experiencing has caused people to limit their travel, so there was an influx of people signing up to attend. Following our success with this event, we sponsored consecutive VMUG virtual events in March and April and I was able to experience it for myself as a virtual exhibitor.
