Quality and Cost

Quality and Cost

For conferencing, good old fashioned phone lines are still the most reliable. But phone connections across territories can be expensive, so you may want to use computer connections for some or all of your communication.
Interactivity

Interactivity

Number of participants

Number of participants

The organizer often doesn’t know, in advance, how many participants will actually show for the event. This can make decisions complicated when also weighing cost, quality, and interactivity considerations.
Audio, Video, Presentation

Frequency

Frequency

Operator Assistance

Operator Assistance

Some conference event hosts are confident enough to do it all themselves and save money; others want an operator to be there for the unexpected.
International Participants

International Participants

Will you dial out to international conferencing participants, or will they dial in? There are cost and convenience differences.
