Santa Clara, California (PressExposure) November 05, 2009 -- Virtual Edge Summit 2010, the Summit on virtual Events, virtual Communities and virtual Marketing announced that the free Discover Pass registration will end December 1, 20009. The Discover Pass is a program that allows qualified marketing and meeting professionals to register free for the Virtual Edge Summit February 22-23 in Santa Clara, California at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
âLast year we ran the same program although we didnât require people to complete the survey until after the event and this time we are requiring them to complete the questionnaire before the event so that we can present the findings,â said Michael Doyle, Executive Director of the Virtual Edge Institute, producers of the Virtual Edge Summit. âThe survey will provide much needed data about the use of virtual technologies for meetings, events and environments and although the questionnaire takes less than 10 minutes to complete, the participants receive a full registration to attend the Summit either in person or virtually for free. It amounts to a pretty big savings.â
