Virtual events have become an increasingly more popular option due to the unprecedented times. While it helps organizations hosting much more events online, on the other side it helps event planners save their money and all the hard work they put into their in-person events. According to recent research, the attendance level at a virtual conference is higher than at an in-person event.
As traditional events need a proper venue, setup and takedown, staff, attendee’s expenses and much more, virtual events don’t need many of them. Besides so many advantages, there is one point we need to mention not being able to have face to face engagements with other attendees. As making connections with other attendees and speakers will be much easier in in-person events, audience engagement might be a bit limited in live stream events.
Another key point is because virtual events go online, attendees don’t need to run from training sessions to breakout sessions. Both attendees and the audience get the benefit as the event takes place online. From the attendee side, he/she can even connect via live video. From the audience side, if he/she can’t make it now they can access the event later its pre-recorded video even through the mobile app.
Lastly, while the virtual event platform can save you time and money, on the other hand, it gives you an opportunity to analyze and report how well the event went. Virtual event software also easily helps you collect the number of fruitful leads during the virtual meeting.
