SAN FRANCISCO, CA – October 28, 2008 – ON24, Inc., the global leader in Webcasting and Virtual Events solutions, announced today that the company will produce for the North American Publishing Company (NAPCO) a virtual trade show on email marketing and commerce. To be held November 13, the live, interactive event will be powered by ON24 Virtual Show, a completely customizable virtual events venue designed for use in demand generation and corporate communications programs.

Attendees of NAPCO’s “All About eMail Virtual Conference & Expo” will be able to access the show online from any computer platform, including Macintosh, without having to download any proprietary software. Once inside, attendees will see that the virtual conference resembles an actual trade show and includes, for example, an auditorium for a keynote address and other educational sessions delivered through ON24’s reliable webcasting solution. “With ON24 Virtual Show, the appearance of a virtual event is completely customizable and can resemble actual locations. We develop 3D renderings based on either artist sketches or photographs, which provides a unique look that reflects each company’s brand and personal identity,” explained Denise Persson, ON24’s CMO.
