Some of the best VConnecting sessions are when virtual participants are able to participate or view in other ways than just VConnecting. OLC sessions available via livestream only to those who purchase a virtual attendance, but you can follow some of the conversation on Twitter with the #OLCInnovate hashtag. There is often more conversation during the keynotes or particularly engaging sessions.
