Summary:This report looks at the expected decline in attendance at trade shows this year and the expected increase in attendance at virtual shows.

"More than one third of respondents cited the social networking benefits of virtual events, including the ability to see a list of all attendees in advance (35%); to contact other attendees online throughout the event (40%) and to get information on people (32%) and companies (34%) they meet electronically."
