Mike and Julius were participating in The EventProfs Chat via Tweetchat led by Jeff Hurt of Midcourse Corrections Blog The chats are attended by event and meeting professionals. I am sorry I could not name them all. The plan is to have a live discussion as the chat went on hoping to point out the nuggets this niche crowd was sharing and have more discussion.

You can attend #eventprofs Chat Tuesday 6-7 PM Pacific Time or Thursday 9am-10am Pacific Time.

As expected Twitter went down as the Chat was suppose to start and Julius and Mike discussed virtual events and experiences as they waited for twitter to come back up. (We do understand the irony of a virtual event going down when we were suppose to be talking about virtual events- technology is unpredictable- like the weather as Julius commented) icon smile #EventProfs From the Sidelines Virtual Events and Experiences
