NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PR Newswire, Vintage and BetterInvesting today released the 2017 calendar for VirtualInvestorConferences.com, the evergreen online investor conference series that directly connects individual investors, institutional investors, advisors and analysts with CEOs and senior executives at public companies.
Next month's event, December 1st, is the 75th in the history of the online roadshow portal & virtual trade show.
At each event, VirtualInvestorConferences.com hosts up to 10 public companies in an engaging online environment. The conference series promotes a consistent, generally monthly, schedule as capital market are too dynamic to limit an equity's real-time shareholder non-deal roadshow communications opportunities to only an annual or quarterly basis.
Fortune 500 companies and emerging growth companies alike have identified VirtualInvestorConferences.com as a key tool within their investor relations mosaic. Aflac, Inc. and three-dimensional bioprinting technology company, Organovo, are both frequent presenters.
"Individual investors are a meaningful part of our shareholder mix and we are committed to consistent and transparent communications with them," said Daniel Bellware, Investor Relations Manager at Aflac. "Since their 2010 inaugural event, Aflac has regularly presented directly to Main Street at VirtualInvestorConferences.com. We find their virtual conference platform to be both convenient and cost-effective and we're pleased to congratulate them on their milestone 75th event."
"VirtualInvestorConferences.com presentations are a fantastic way to reach a broad and diverse retail investor audience," commented Steve Kunszabo, VP, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications at Organovo. "It's the leading technology platform and great format."
One of the strengths of VirtualInvestorConferences.com is that its published annual calendar of events allows companies to strategically plan in advance as well as have the flexibility to join a monthly event at the last minute in concert with breaking new material developments at their company.

"When we first introduced the online roadshow series, it was, and still is, unique in the industry," said VirtualInvestorConferences.com co-creator John Viglotti, VP, Investor Relations Products and Services at PR Newswire. "Certainly, PR Newswire has an intrinsic understanding of news flow and news cycles, and giving public companies an easy online path to reach current and prospective investors with updated material news, other than waiting for the quarterly earnings call is, has proven itself for 75 events now," Viglotti finished.
"Almost 80% of institutional investors watch online slide presentations. It's the most compelling media format for a non-earnings event," reports Bradley H. Smith, VirtualInvestorConferences.com co-creator and PR Newswire's & Vintage's Director of Marketing. "In October alone, the portal has had over 2,000 individual presentations viewed.
