We get it.  Some people are ready to travel and some people are not.  The choice should be yours. At CME Seminars, all of our seminars are both live events and streamed as a webinar.  You have your choice to attend using either option.  We offer that same choice to our speakers.  If a speaker attends remotely, the session will still be live and in real time. When you sign up for a seminar, you can choose the other option if you change your mind and receive a no hassle refund or upcharge for the difference in ticket price.

We will be limiting attendance and practicing social distancing for those that choose to attend.
