Hosting a Successful Online Conference
Successfully hosting an online conference or hybrid event is increasingly important. That is to say, not only in times of social distancing.
Professional event management has several vital functions: For instance, create brand awareness and revenue for the organiser. In addition, share up-to-date information. And certainly networking.
For a long time, traditional person events and face-to-face meetings seemed the best way of achieving customer success. However, resistance to adopting new meeting formats mainly came from not knowing how valid these alternative formats were at meeting these goals.
We help you choose the right event format and develop a secure and engaging virtual experience.
Your expert for online conferences and events
Online events facilitate conference attendance besides travel restrictions and help deliver vanguard information. Moreover, a virtual summit is perfectly compatible with event marketing, digital marketing and sponsorship strategies while allowing planners to be ready for any pandemic eventuality. Similarly, well planned virtual conferences can boost attendance, increase the event experience and reach a wider audience than traditional live events.
Hybrid events feature a mix of live and online components. In this model, some people may be present at a physical location, while others attend the sessions via the live stream. As a result, hybrid events may attract sponsors and attendees who would not have otherwise been drawn to a live event. And if needed, hybrid meetings can be easily modified and turned into an entirely virtual event.
Our online event platforms are fully GDPR compliant and hosted on servers within the European Union.
