There are two major options open to you, IF you decide to go this route:
Hybrid Event: A hybrid event is a tradeshow, conference, unconference, seminar, workshop or other meeting that combines a "live" in-person event with a "virtual" online component. With the growing popularity and cost-effectiveness of virtual events, hybrid events have become a popular way of increasing participation in traditional events at a relatively low cost.
Virtual Event: An occurrence of people gathering together where some or all of the attendees are not physically in the same location but are connected in a common environment. The common environment might be one of many types but is usually enabled through the use of computers and the Internet.
If we had any input, we would vote Hybrid, as it gives a truer conference feel for your attendees.
This being said, nocci would love to help you maneuver through this new territory!
