The idea of a virtual event is transferring traditional, physical exhibition concepts to the virtual world. As with a physical conference, the two main goals of a virtual conference are distribution of information and interaction between participants. A good virtual event pays equal attention to both goals. It is thus highly different from traditional online communications, which either focus on interaction (e.g. web conferencing for small groups) or on information transmission (e.g. web casts for large groups).
If a virtual event is well planned and based on a well designed platform, it offers the option to complement or even completely replace a physical event.
