  The Conference Center  

The Conference Center is the place where attendees first enter into the virtual conference hall. It is here that you provide concise directions to the elements of the hall. It is here that badge entry, help desk, announcements and retail opportunities occur. Flowthrough in these areas can run into tens of thousands of net visitors per day. Live audio and video broadcast can be featured here. Careful design ensures that the space runs well on attendees' computers at modem speeds.
