Why Virtual Events

The 95% Solution

As you run your business and continue to analyze expenses, attending physical trade shows can drain heavily on your budget. Registration fees, hotels, meals, airfare, taxis, etc. can add up quickly. Are you really getting the return that you need based on the costs of attending? 95% of all travel agents never attend a major physical trade show, and this may be a key deciding factor.

Taking into account all of these expenses, and almost more importantly, your time away from being in the office and booking travel, TravelPulse founded Virtual Travel Events in 2008.
