Virtual (online) Photography Event www.pdnvirtualevents.com
This one day online event (8 Dec 2010) was focussed on the Photography community and organised by PDN .. Photo District News .. a monthly photo magazine that comes out of New York and is designed for professionals and keen amateurs.
The event, PhotoPlus, took place in a virtual '3D' environment although it was closer to a webinar experience than to that of being in a 3D emmersive environment.
This meant it was a very easy experience ... just at the click of a button a visitor would be transported to the environment which was totally inside a browser ... so no elaborate 3D viewers needed downloading and no avatar was involved ... very low learning curve.
There was a keynote and several online presentations ... which were advertised as 'live' but in fact were recorded ... there was also an exhibition hall where information could be found about individual exhibitors and you could have real-time chat with a company representative.

Virtual tradeshow
Virtual tradeshow
A virtual tradeshow, often called a virtual tradefair ,or a virtual event, is an online environment, that goes live and stays live online for a limited period of time, often with the expectation that several like-minded participants will be available online for brief spells of time, allowing them to connect with one another without travel, via the Internet, no matter where they are located geographically, to exchange valuable information.
The structure of a typical virtual tradeshow often includes a virtual exhibit hall which users enter with specific permissions and capabilities, to either attend and view virtual trade show displays in the exhibit hall or build virtual booths to exhibit information related to products or services on offer, just as they would at a trade fair in a convention center.
The virtual tradeshow may have other components such as a virtual web conference, or a web seminar or a webinar, or other educational presentations.

Virtual Events Platforms
Virtual Events Platforms
This is a generic term also known as 'Light Immersive Platforms'
These are online virtual world platforms that are not the full 3D immersive experience.
One of their advantages is that they can support hundreds or thousands of visitors unlike the full immersive virtual worlds where the number of simultaneous users is much smaller.
The generic term for this type of online platform does vary ... including 'virtual tradeshows'.
