It’s been interesting to see how virtual BV conferences have been evolving. Earlier this year, we mostly saw Zoom being used in simple formats. NACVA went a step further and used a combination of Zoom and GoToMeeting for its Virtual Super Conference that was effective and easy to use. An online speed networking feature has been added to the AAML/BVR Virtual Divorce Conference (starting September 9) that will match you up for a series of short one-on-one video conversations. The ASA just announced that it will use vFairs for its annual conference in October that will include an online microsite featuring scheduled presentations, real-time networking via a combination of chat tools, and access to post-event content on demand. While we hope we can soon get back to live face-to-face events, these virtual substitutes have shaped up nicely to provide the next best thing.
