We live in a world where technology is ever-changing. While a lot of tech advances are rather confusing, there are some key technological innovations that we think everyone should be aware of and take advantage of.

Let me ask you this, have you ever attended a virtual event? If no, you’re likely wondering, what it is.

What is a virtual event?

A virtual event takes space online in a designated “virtual event space.” Much like in-person events, there’ll likely be a large room set up with booths, exhibition halls and a help desk.

One of our partners, Your Overseas Home, hosts a bi-annual virtual event which is an excellent example of how successful virtual events can be.

It is designed to attract anyone interested in buying property overseas. Your Overseas Home’s team welcomes over 20 other experts in currency, real estate, property law, logistics and residency to help provide attendees with all the contacts they need for a safe and secure property purchase abroad. Plus, we’ll be attending, so get your ticket today to speak to us on the day.
