Lately there has been a lot of hype about webinars but what exactly is a webinar? For those of us who are not that tech savvy, a webinar is very similar to a conference only that it is held via the internet. The name webinar is a derivative of the word "web" and "seminar". A webinar has the potential for large conferences that can reach out to audiences who are not able to attend in person, business presentations and even tutorials. These web-based conferences are very interactive; allowing for live question and answer sessions, chats as well as polling. All the audience will need is a computer and an internet connection. Many event Malaysia companies are now catching on to this trend of conferencing as an addition to their list of services.
