NAIOP Vancouver has been proudly hosting the monthly Breakfast Events for years, welcoming all CRE professionals to come together in Downtown Vancouver and network over the most important meal of the day. Industry leader presentations, state of the economy, and Government Minister speeches are just some of the presentations we've had the pleasure of enjoying over the years.
But what happens if you can't make it? These events can draw a sell-out crowd, with members being turned away at the door.
This month, NAIOP Vancouver is excited to introduce live webcasting to our Breakfast Event. From the comfort of your home, office, or Palm Springs poolside, you can now catch all of the event presentations via live streaming video. There are no software downloads, plugins, or technologies required to tune in - just a healthy Internet connection and a comfortable seat.
The benefits of this new method of event delivery are plentiful
- Increased accessibility for members
- Larger attendee capacity
- Presentation recording available to download following the event
But what about the interaction?
Networking plays a major role at these Breakfast Events. That is why we would never replace the in-person events with an online only broadcast. But for a discounted price you can stay up to date and in the know on all industry happenings without committing a large portion of your day. In addition, we will be integrating a Twitter Chat into the broadcast, allowing you to ask questions, share your thoughts, and get involved in the conversation. After all, it's not a discussion without your voice.
So if you haven't registered for the February 18th Breakfast Event, do so here. And if you're not in town, or not a morning person, consider selecting the "Online Attendee" option.
Now if only we could deliver the Eggs Benedict…
