Second chance for second life: Virtual business worlds
Marketing consultancy Barcelona Virtual offers a virtual auditorium called CEL in the virtual world Second Life, which can be used for conferences and business meetings. The service aims to cut time and costs, such as travel and event expenses, that would be incurred in real life but serve the need for people to ‘meet’.

By removing the distance barriers, Second Life allows instant communication in a totally controllable environment. Will this mean that bricks-and-mortar conferences will be a thing of the past?
