Unveiling the World of Virtual Conferences in Israel

If someone had approached us at Kaleidoscope just over a year and a half ago, and asked us to produce a virtual conference, we would have been hesitant and skeptical. We likely would have argued in favor of the traditional “in-person” conferences, emphasizing the importance of real and physical ideological exchanges. However, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic has completely reshaped our perspective.

Virtual conferences have undoubtedly found their place in Israel’s conference landscape. Organizers must grasp the advantages and disadvantages of virtual conferences and strike a balance between utilizing technology and preserving the human element. In this blog post, we will explore tools for assessing needs and share insights on the production process.

When is a virtual conference effective?

Consider a scenario where the introduction of a new life-saving drug during an emergency demands swift dissemination of information. Our online platform can serve as a valuable tool for relevant medical associations and pharmaceutical companies, providing instant notifications and facilitating remote presentations by experts. By recording and hosting the conference on a website, along with the accompanying Q&A sessions, viewers anywhere can access the content at their convenience and from the comfort of their own homes. Moreover, continuous dialogue through the website fosters real-time effectiveness.

Does a virtual conference limit engagement?

While a virtual conference lacks the distinct dimension of face-to-face interactions, it is by no means limiting in terms of information dissemination. In fact, virtual conferences excel in the demonstration aspect. They are not confined by the number of screens, offer dynamic transitions, and provide interactive operation options.

Understanding Hybrid Conferences:

The term “hybrid conference” denotes a connection between a traditional “in-person” conference and a dynamic virtual conference. The “in-person” conference takes place simultaneously in multiple locations, adhering to medical standards and precautions. These centers are connected via a network to an unlimited number of participants, who can view the conference stream individually or in groups, such as doctors’ offices or research laboratories. This setup allows for a rich conference experience. Virtual conferences, empowered by technological advancements and improved bandwidth, boast impressive presentation capabilities. They can feature split screens for captivating presentations and even create virtual environments that simulate physical exhibitions. Such conferences can offer virtual exhibitions within the conference environment on dedicated websites, fostering opportunities for interpersonal connections.

Embracing Creativity in Virtual Conferences:

It is important to recognize that virtual conference production does not have to mimic the format of physical events. There is ample room for creativity and innovation. Virtual conferences capitalize on the unique aspects of online meetings while benefiting conference organizers. It has become a growing trend for unions and companies to incorporate targeted virtual conferences into their annual enrichment programs, alongside traditional conferences. These developments highlight the ongoing need for rejuvenation in the conference industry.


The rise of virtual conferences in Israel has ushered in a new era of knowledge sharing and collaboration. While they may not replicate the exact same experience of physical gatherings, virtual conferences offer distinct advantages in terms of information delivery, flexibility, and reach. By leveraging technology, organizers can create engaging and interactive virtual conference experiences. As the conference world continues to evolve, it is evident that virtual conferences have become an indispensable and complementary part of the conference landscape, promoting continuous innovation and the quest for renewal.
