PRLog - March 6, 2012 - London, UK -- With the booming trend of digital-marketing or e-commerce, it is no doubt that online business has become more and more important and efficient than any other forms of business. However, many experts and professionals also point out the irreplaceable characteristics for some offline business, especially the offline events and conferences. Here are the top 10 reasons why attending offline events or conferences are good for business:
10. Getting out of the office is always good for knowing your business environment. During the events or the conferences, you can actually build the direct connection with the people, products, new trend and the whole business environment. You can actually see and feel what is really happening in your business, and that is something you can never get from sitting in the office and staring at your computer screen.
9. Being more focused on business. Attending the event or conference, talking with other attendees or presenter is in fact the least distractive way to deal with your business, because being in the event or conference is almost impossible to multi-task, which is good for the consistent thinking and productivity. It is totally different situation from a webinar where attendees can still handle email, instant message, phone calls and so on.
