Convention Canceled in New Orleans? Now There's a Solution
Convention Canceled! New Orleans' Katrina forced a lot of organizations to trash their plans of running a convention in New Orleans. Now a company from Boston offers a solution. Introducing Virtual Online Conventions.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 4, 2005
Real Estate CyberSpace Society, of Boston MA, announced today its plans to offer Virtual Online Convention services to any organization displaced by the disasater in New Orleans with all profits to be given to the American Red Cross.
John M. Peckham III, Executive Director of the Real Estate CyberSpace Society, explains: "As we prayed for all of the families affected by this terrible disaster - Katrina, we realized that the plans of tens of thousands across the country were also thrown into turmoil the moment it became clear that the convention and hotel facilities booked for Convention events would not be available for an extended time", Peckham said. He observed that "Conventions are historically booked years in advance and moving a scheduled event to another city is a Herculean task that could be close to impossible for conventions scheduled to be held in the near future."
The Real Estate CyberSpace Society has been producing online conventions for over four years using a patent pending system. The process has been used to produce events for a wide ranging group of organizations including the St, Louis Association of Realtors, the Geospatial Information & Technology Association, the National Real Estate On-Line Convention and Exposition http://www. recyber. com/preconvention/ (http://www. recyber. com/preconvention/) and is currently under license to produce the on-line convention for a major national trade association in April.
On-line conventions can be put into place in a very short time span, often as little as three weeks. This presents displaced organizations with the opportunity to bring their attendees a full featured event without the need to travel, saving travel and hotel expense while bringing together attendees in a meaningful networking atmosphere.
Any displaced organization suffering from a canceled convention can obtain information regarding the online convention alternative by contacting On-Line Convention Director, Angela Portosa at Convention@REcyber. com or at 508-481-1905.
