Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
Streamlogics Inc., a leading global provider of results-driven webcasting solutions, today announced the launch of Streamlogics' Virtual Events, in partnership with Unisfair. By combining Unisfair's best in class virtual events environment with Streamlogics' webcasting platform, organizations can now provide streaming audio and video as part of their virtual events to make them more engaging and lifelike. Participants require nothing more than a web browser and an internet connection to get the full immersive event experience. Virtual events are currently being used for a wide range of applications including tradeshows, online marketing events, job fairs and training forums.
In a recent poll by Meetings and Conventions Magazine, 88% of respondents indicated their organizations would be reducing travel budgets in 2009. Streamlogics' Virtual Events provide a more cost-effective, environmentally responsible alternative to exhibiting or attending traditional tradeshows for companies who need to cut travel and marketing budgets. The regional, national or even international reach of a virtual event means that travel is no longer an obstacle to exhibitors or attendees, and the ability to use live video and audio makes the virtual environment as engaging and interactive as a face to face meeting. According to a survey conducted by the FactPoint Group and sponsored by Unisfair, virtual events attract an average of 15 exhibitors and 1,500 participants per event, with each attendee participating online for an average of over 2.5 hours.
Key features offered by Streamlogics' Virtual Events include:
-Live and On-Demand Webcasts: To deliver keynotes and vendor presentations within virtual environments
-Professional Networking: Attendees can upload, modify and publish their professional profiles. The Professional Networking tool searches the virtual environment and delivers recommendations on others who have similar business interests based on certain criteria.

-E-commerce Integration: Allows event organizers to generate revenue by charging admission to events or to specific locations such as keynote presentations.
