Posted by 6Connex Blogger on Sep 11, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Since we introduced our HTML5 Virtual Environment Platform V7, we’ve been inundated about questions concerning the difference between Flash and HTML5 from our clients and partners running online events and virtual tradeshows.

How to Set Up and Host a Virtual Career Fair

Posted by 6Connex Blogger on Aug 28, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Career fairs have long served as a way to attract and pre-screen a large number of potential job candidates at one time and in one place. But two factors have lessened their efficiency.

First, the growing movement to seek out talent where it lives rather than being limited to local areas is making live job fairs obsolete.

Posted by 6Connex Blogger on Aug 18, 2017 7:00:00 AM

If your company’s fiscal year starts January 1, it’s a good bet your sales team is under the gun to close out the year strong.  At the same time, sales leadership is already thinking about how to kick off 2015 with a bang, with sales training, goal-setting and lots of team building – very likely with a Sales Kick Off.

The traditional Sales Kick Off (SKO) is an in-person affair.  If you know salespeople, you know there’s no replacement for connecting face-to-face, sitting down and sharing a drink with colleagues.  While we couldn’t agree more, we also know adding a virtual component to your SKO (a Virtual SKO) will allow you to be more inclusive to your organization while ensuring your content lives long after your reps leave Las Vegas.

What would you do if you owned an entire office building or campus? Or if you owned a convention center?
