"Nothing will ever replace the face-to-face meetings at an ASHRAE Conference but sometimes you just can't be there. Especially if you live on the other side of the world. I have attended the last two Conferences virtually and have been pleased with the value. For those of you who perhaps live outside the USA, or have never attended an ASHRAE meeting, this is a very good alternative. I try to 'watch' one presentation a day, and have watched some more than twice – you pick up more that way. When the phone rings I pause the presentation, and have even left it paused overnight. If it works for me down here on the tip of Africa with limited bandwidth it can only work well for you." Mike Barker, electrical engineer, South Africa."
