BEA Webinars

As an extension of the BEA Conference Program our live Webinars give you the opportunity to interact with industry experts as they give a presentation on a current industry hot topic.

Attending a Webinar is just like attending a live conference session—including the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker, but all from the convenience of your desk. We archive our past Webinars so if you miss one, you can always go back and watch it later.
