  Article Summary  
With air travel presenting challenges around time lost flying, reduced on-plane seating space, and security compliance, virtual meetings via teleconference are becoming a more attractive option.

The time and expense of days-long trips for in-person meetings are being replaced by meeting online, and benefits of virtual meetings are many and multi-faceted.

Benefits of virtual meetings - via Skype or Facetime - include time and cost savings, greater productivity, and happier employees.

Also addressed are situations where in-person meetings are essential - those times when not meeting face-to-face can put at risk an important business relationship or potential deal.
