Hoofddorp, Netherlands June 01, 2009 Asentus Europe B.V. has developed a unique Virtual Event Platform (AVP) in response to challenging economic times. AVP is a powerful web-based platform that hosts customized virtual events at a fraction of the cost.

Identifying with the global change in doing business, AVP was created as an innovative new way to facilitate and attend events. Recently, Asentus used the platform to deliver, manage and host the Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) Virtual Summit 2009.

“Running our first Virtual MCT Summit was an amazing experience with Asentus”, said Worldwide MCT Readiness Manager Bill Chapman. “The ease of pulling together a worldwide event of this scale makes them a key asset to Team MCT”.

The Asentus Virtual Events Platform is fully brand-able, flexible in its navigation and includes a variety of features that allow the client to create an engaging event while harnessing the online advantage. It‘s Virtual Backpack, customizable

Sponsor Booths and multi-tier plans make this platform a leader in the industry and a simple choice for the virtual event manager.

Tjeerd Veninga, MCT Community Lead, Microsoft Learning, says that Asentus is a “zero headaches vendor [who] delivers quality events for us each year” and calls AVP “the event‘s reliable diesel engine that just keeps humming”.

Virtual Events can be arranged on a short timeline while maximizing all of the event options available. AVP offers an unlimited amount of logged chat rooms
that provide a “coffee bar-like” atmosphere. Scheduled Expert Chats take place in moderated discussion forums and feature expert speakers and presenters.
Another feature sure to garner client attention is the real-time Live Sessions scheduled on an individual agenda.

Based on ASP.NET, Silverlight and AJAX technology, AVP boasts user friendly navigation and can present high-quality full screen and/or embedded streaming Silverlight videos.
