People used to spend a lot of time and money traveling from one place to another for business meetings or training. With the advent of the Internet, however, online interaction is becoming a trend. In the business world, I believe this trend brings about more advantages than disadvantages.
Needless to say, going online is far from perfect for all business meetings and training. Obviously, one big disadvantage of online meetings is that participants may have a difficult time gauging the reaction of other participants, since they cannot read each others’ body language as well as they can in face-to-face communication. Besides, if the presenters are not technically savvy or have a fear of communication technology, the meeting could prove to be a disaster. Further, an online meeting or training can be interrupted by the Internet disconnection, which is possible for one reason or another, and be made less serious than expected.
However, having business meetings and training online helps to boost efficiency and reduce costs. To begin with, to conduct an online business conference, the only thing required is the Internet connection without geographical limitations, and it is therefore a great method of time management. In addition, holding business meetings online offers the advantage of cost savings. Participants do not have to be flown in from distant points and put up in hotels since they can take part from any corner of the world. It is little wonder, then, that online meetings and training have become increasingly popular with business leaders in recent years.
In conclusion, business meetings and training going online may have both positive and negative effects, but in the business context, it is certainly more an advantage since it can give a competitive edge to businesses by helping bring down their costs and improve their efficiency.

Among all the changes following the advent of Internet, online business training and business meeting have given rise to hot debate about their negative and positive effects on human society. From my perspective, The benefits of virtual training and meeting are far more than its drawbacks.
Time and money saved from attending offline meetings can be devoted to more productive things. To join in a business training or a business meeting held in a distant place might be both tiring and fruitless, let along the work left behind. But a training course or conference online will be a totally different story. Only through a screen or a telephone line can a bunch of people get together to discuss crucial things related to business, which will, undeniably, save a lot of time and money. With the time and money saved, people could make more contributions to the transactions or projects they have at hand.
It is more convenient and efficient to gather talents of related areas from around the world. Business talents might be occupied by too many dealings and tasks that they do not have enough time to travel long distance to join a business tutoring or a business gathering happening hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Their time and energy are too precious to be wasted in a long-distance trip. Commerce tutoring or assembly can, however, solve this problem and gather as many trading professionals as possible. Through communication online, many important issues can be discussed and tackled
