Online events are the way to go for the future – a fact that is also confirmed by the figures in the recent Meeting & Event Barometer. While only 27% of providers considered hybrid and distributed events as shaping the future of the event market in the beginning of March, this number quickly changed to 60% after 9th March. Similarly, opinions shifted when it comes to virtual events: Before COVID-19, 47% thought that these types of events have great potential, whereas now this number is at 75%. The reason for this shift in opinion are the various advantages of virtual events:
Virtual events eliminate the need for consumables, catering, event equipment, costs for the venue and exhibition stands. You will also save some time spent on organising, while everyone involved will save a lot of travel time.
Virtual events are real magnets for leads. After all, the focus is on the topic and since the event is recorded, it stays relevant. Your attendees are not tied to a specific location and/or time.
Are your event’s contents a must-hear for your attendees? Consider offering them for a fee – either live or as a recording.
How many visitors attended a specific presentation? Which stands did attendees visit, and how often and for how long? By setting up a virtual event, you will receive answers to these (and many more) questions.
By digitising your events, you reduce or eliminate the need for many resources required for running the event as well as for arriving and leaving the event location, and are thus contributing to a more sustainable meeting industry.
Digital business events are an open door to the world – and are attracting international attendees. You are thus able to target new customer groups and bring more people together.
Whether you are organising a completely virtual event or a hybrid one, online events help you to target your attendees exactly where they are – and that is the future!
More than 12 million tickets sold for more than 1.6 million business events. More than 237,000 organisers have already said: Thank you, XING Events! In the course of the past months, a majority of these organisers digitised their existing offline events or created new online events. And their experiences show: That was the right decision!
