5 Reasons to Choose Virtual Events over Real Events
As now the world is within the screens of your digital devices, events are also getting compatible within your screen sizes. With state-of-the-art technologies like 3D augmented reality, developers are digitalizing the event sector. Before listing the reasons, we would like to remind you that we are not including the pandemic as one of them.
Even though virtual events existed before the pandemic, the demand rose recently due to the lockdowns and restrictions. From startups, corporates, to event organizers, all are depending on the digital infrastructure to host webinars, conferences, job fairs, and other major events. But, after this emerging demand, people realized the capabilities and possibilities of a virtual event.
Here, I’ll be talking about the reasons for both, hosts and attendees, to go for virtual events rather than in-person events.
Previously, we would have to step out and crawl through traffic in rush hours to reach a happening event. But now, the scene is changing with virtual events. All you need is to register and log in to attend the event. The virtual venue lets you immerse yourself in the environment and engage. With more time and less stress, hosts, and attendees, can engage more in the event.
Different add-ons available on Events N Expo allows you to schedule a meeting with an exhibitor or a vendor if you could not interact with him in real-time. And if you had to miss your favorite speaker’s session, all you have to do is to add the live video session to “ Watch Later” and you could access it later.
More than just an event with a particular location where the people could walk into the crowd, a virtual event is available for anyone who is interested in registering to attend the event, be it any corner of the world. The host can leverage the benefits of discovering new demography of the audience.
With wider reach, comes in more sales. Social promotions of an event can bring in more attendees from different countries. Features like Networking Lounge and Breakout Sessions in Events N Expo can help create a community. There are add ons to access the database to collect contact details of fellow-attendees, which would strengthen the relationship between attendees to help last the community longer.
Physical venues limit the number of people to fit in, and it takes a huge cost for hosting thousands of people. On the other side, virtual events make it easier to scale, when it comes to hosting a huge crowd for a fraction of cost. Even though the cost is cut, the experience delivered to the audience won’t degrade.
Also, scalability adds an extra advantage by expanding your reach to promote brand awareness. Plus, the reporting and analytics feature lets you distinguish between a lot of factors to help calculate the engagements and make strategies to make it better.
Give your event a theme and design the spaces accordingly with the customizable environment made available by Events N Expo. Add a color scheme to the virtual infrastructure, and change it whenever you want.
Give priorities to your sponsors with custom branding space on several screens. From poster to video, the digital screens can display any format of advertisements and promotional materials. Promote your exhibitors on digital banners in the lobby, to let the attendees know where their booths are located. Keep changing the theme and color scheme with unlimited customizations.
From hiring a venue to the accommodation of speakers and their food and drinks, it takes tens of thousands of dollars for one day. Hosting a virtual event is much cost-effective than an on-ground event. The above-mentioned costs are not even applicable in this case, but all you have to pay is for the platform, promotion, and guest speakers.
With the lesser cost to spend on and more to earn with wider reach, engagement, and boosted sales, comes the greater return on investment.
