What features should the virtual events platform have?

Once you have determined your event goals and the type of event you will be hosting you should now know what are the must-have features. Each platform will have slightly different offerings so it is important that you know what you need based on your goals. For example, do you want virtual booths and exhibitor halls, are you hosting multi agenda sessions, do you want live presentations with a lot of attendee participation? 

Here are some key requirements to consider: 

  • Number of attendees and any limitations 
  • Live and pre-recorded webinars 
  • Live analytics, dashboards and data tracking 
  • Integration with CRMs 
  • Fully customizable event branding and environment 
  • Attendee matching technology 
  • On-demand content 
  • Reception area/help desk 
  • Custom registration 
  • Networking opportunities (video chats, 1:1 chats and meeting rooms) 
  • Mobile app and/or responsive design for different devices
