Can’t attend in person? Consider going virtually!
Scheduling conflicts and budgets can make it difficult to attend off-site conferences and events like AIHce EXP — but that shouldn’t mean you miss out on the valuable education and inspiring keynotes available in Atlanta this year. What if there was a way for you to save money but still get the high-quality education you’re looking for from the comfort of your home or office?
That’s where Virtual AIHce EXP comes in!
Colleen Manning, the Program Director of eLearning at AIHA, and her team have been working hard to finalize the 2020 virtual program for those who won’t be able to be onsite in Georgia. Since this is her fifth Virtual AIHce EXP, she knows what it takes to create a well-rounded, diverse program.
Virtual AIHce EXP offers a robust online program, including the ability to watch the opening and closing keynotes, along with three different concurrent session options. Oh, and did we mention the new Director’s Cut programming, giving you behind-the-scenes access to exclusive videos and interviews with presenters, sponsors, and special guests?
“Participants have told us they appreciate being able to do their professional development in a way that still allows them to keep up with the responsibilities at home and at work,” said Colleen. “They also like that they can chat with each other and comment throughout the live sessions — you can’t really do that in person without disrupting the room.”
So, how was this year’s virtual agenda selected? The sessions selected cover a wide range of different topics and tracks, which mirrors the in-person experience as much as possible. By taking in attendee feedback, Virtual AIHce EXP tries to remain true to typical behavior of those on-site: attending quality sessions, informal networking opportunities, learning more from select speakers and influencers through personal conversation, and impromptu sidebar discussions with fellow peers about topics they care about.
It’s not just about the education tracks and the professional development courses (PDCs) that are a part of the virtual experience, however. Colleen says, “We’re always looking at ways we can bring more of the expo hall experience, as well as having quality content – including interviews and discussions – during our new Director’s Cut installments.”
Be sure to check out the full programming for this year’s conference and register today. Don’t forget that the keynotes will only be available in real time (they aren't recorded), so you won’t want to miss it!
We can’t wait to see you online!
