Traditional physical events are built for engagement. From attendees networking at happy hours to one-on-one appointments and live sessions; these types of events encourage attendee involvement. You might think that virtual events don’t provide an opportunity for networking – you’d be wrong.
Sessions can include live polling, Q&As or surveys. Engagement tools such as group chats, quizzes and gamification can all be employed within the virtual platform. Notifications and messaging capabilities mean attendees and exhibitors can meet each other virtually and set up meetings.
Another advantage of virtual events is their inclusivity. There can be many reasons why someone cannot attend your in-person event. From financial and budgetary constraints, to health reasons and disabilities. By hosting your event online everyone can participate, adding an element of inclusivity to your event strategy.
