Seminar Hosting Methods

For your convenience, we offer two hosting locations for our technical seminars: an on-site and virtual option.

On-Site Seminar Duration: 1 Hour Location: Your Facility

Our most recommended option is an on-site seminar conducted at your facility. However, all on-site seminars are based on availability.

This hosting option delivers a more hands-on approach that helps you reach the solutions you need faster – and it includes a provided lunch. During the seminar, our team will provide an immersive and engaging educational environment.

Virtual Webinar Duration: 1-hour Method: Video Conferencing

If an on-site seminar is unsuitable for your needs, we also offer virtual seminars that are conducted remotely.

When arranging your virtual webinar, you and your team will have the option to select the virtual meeting service provider of your choice (Zoom, Webex, etc.).

When requesting your meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to specify the design concerns, questions, and/or topics you’re most interested in so that our team can prepare to meet your needs.

Our team is extremely flexible and committed to meeting your availability needs, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have a special request or preference.
