Whether you are a regular at technology events and trade shows or, as more of an introvert, you prefer to hold down the fort at your own office while everyone else is out traveling, the year 2020 presents a unique opportunity for plenty of IT pros.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the familiar trade shows and vendor events are being transformed from physical events to virtual ones. You don’t need to go through TSA, take a plane, rent a car, spend money on a hotel. All you need is your computer and web browser.

So if you are a more of the homebody type, or if your travel budget has always been limited, this year provides the opportunity to attend all those events that you wished you could have gone to in the past, because now they are virtual.

If you are a road warrior, looking to hit as many shows as you can, it will be easier than ever to attend multiple events, even if your company has restricted the travel budget this year. You could even go to multiple events in a single day. It doesn't matter where you are geographically.
