For the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the premier provider of anti-fraud training education and certification, putting on an in-person event just wasn’t an option given today’s global health concerns. But ACFE, like most businesses, still needed to figure out how to fill the gap left by the lack of in-person events. The solution? Moving in-person content online with virtual events and conferences.

Tune into this on-demand webinar to learn how ACFE took its traditional in-person annual conference virtual in just a matter of weeks, and flawlessly delivered 92 sessions over 2.5 days, all while providing a stellar experience for 4,000+ attendees and dozens of sponsors.

Hear directly from ACFE’s virtual conference experts, Franco Coninglione and John Loftis as they walk through:

  • Best Practices for virtual conference pre, during and post planning and execution

  • Tips for driving attendee networking and engagement

  • Best Practices for involving sponsorships at virtual conferences
