A virtual Event is the ideal platform to engage audiences, share information, facilitate conversations, connect sponsors, and enable networking with attendees located anywhere globally.
Virtual events are becoming an increasingly important part of the marketing and training mix for corporations, non-profit, and government organizations. Virtual events can provide a rich source of data, because the activities of each attendee can be tracked and measured.
Virtual event platforms offer a variety of ways for attendees to connect and engage. Virtual booths, networking forums and designated breakout rooms allow audiences to connect with event organizers, booth representatives, sponsors, or fellow attendees using text or video chat. Attendees can leverage A.I. matchmaking to discover like-minded individuals to connect with.
One of the key differences between in-person and virtual events is that a virtual event is available on-demand, even after the live part of the event is over. This enables users to return to components of the virtual event to view sessions again, access content or gather additional information.
Virtual events became increasingly popular when the global pandemic forced organizers to cancel in-person events and pivot to virtual events.
Organizers have realized significant benefits when hosting virtual events including:
- Greater reach: Attendance generally increased by 20% when switching to a virtual event because attendees can join from their home or office without the need to travel.
- Cost-effective: In-person event costs can add up quickly when including staffing, hotel, food and beverage, travel, etc. Virtual events can reach large audiences at a much lower price. Further, less staffing time is required to produce a virtual event.
- Extended shelf life: One of the virtual event benefits is that it provides organizations with valuable digital content, which can be made available on-demand for attendees to access anytime. Pieces of the content can also can be distributed on social media channels or the organizations website.
- Availability of experts: It is often difficult to book expert speakers for in-person events because of the time and expense required for travel. Virtual events allow organizers to invite industry experts from any location to lead sessions and participate in the event. Better speakers also translates to increased attendance.
- Reporting data: Virtual event platforms track every attendee attendance, behavior, interest, webinar views, booth visits, etc. This data can be used to measure ROI and provide valuable insights for sponsors.
A virtual platform is a type of computer software that allows you to host online events such as trade shows, virtual summits, virtual conferences, job fairs, and other online events.
These virtual platforms are designed to bring your guests together online. Usually the software includes streaming sessions, networking, gamification, downloadable content, exhibitor booths, and other audience engagement tools.
Another example of a virtual platform is cloud computing. Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services, such as storage, networking, databases, analytics, software and other services, over the internet. It allows users to access these services without having to install and manage hardware and software on their own machines. The cloud provider manages all the hardware and software, and provides services to customers on demand.
The best platform for hosting a virtual event or meeting will depend on the type of event you are hosting and audience features. For example, a virtual career fair event may require different virtual components than a trade show or expo and vice versa. Here are a few things you should consider when choosing the best platform:
- Company details: Find out how long the provider has been in business, where are they incorporated, types and levels of insurance they carry, D&B number, D-U-N-I-S number, etc.
- Virtual event platform hosting: Ask details about reliability, scalability (how many concurrent attendees it can handle), data security (protecting attendee information for compliance).
- Customization: Users want an immersive virtual event design. For example, if it is a University event, use images of the campus for the various rooms and spaces.
- Engaging webinar platform features:
- Q&A, chat, and polls
- Downloadable resources
- Adaptive bit rate for video
- Offers networking opportunities with other attendees:
- Intentional networking: The ability for attendees to search and connect with other attendees via text and/or video chat.
- Unintentional networking: A platform feature that matches attendees with other like attendees based on profile data and content views.
- Entertainment surprises: The ability to incorporate gamification, social media walls, virtual photo booth, magic show, music, etc.
- Support: Find out exactly what set-up support is available. In addition, ask details about the type of support available during the live day(s) for the organizer, attendees, and speakers.

Typically, virtual event platforms set up by an organizer to help connect and engage with audiences around the globe. They offer an effective way to host events, conferences, webinars, and other online gatherings without the need for travel.
Virtual event platforms provide an easy-to-use interface and a wide range of features to help make your event a success.
At the core of a virtual event platform, there are generally four key components: registration, streaming sessions, engagement, and analytics.
- Registration: This is the first step to hosting a virtual event. A virtual event platform can help you create an online registration page for your event, allowing you to collect information from your participants. From there, you can customize the registration process and send out automated emails to confirm attendance and remind them about the event.
- Streaming: Virtual event platforms also offer session streaming capabilities, so that you can broadcast your speakers in real-time. Depending on the platform, you can choose from a variety of streaming options, such as live webcasting or on-demand streaming of pre-recorded content.
- Engagement: Engaging with your attendees is a key component of any virtual event. With virtual event platforms, you can use features such as live Q&A, polls, and surveys to interact with your audience. In addition, you can use networking rooms or breakout sessions to facilitate dialogue and keep attendees engaged throughout your event.
- Analytics: Finally, virtual event platforms offer analytics and reporting capabilities to help you measure the success and impact of your event. With analytics, you can track attendance and engagement, as well as gain insights into who your audience is and how they interact with your content. This will help you make informed decisions on how to improve your events in the future.
Overall, virtual event platforms are an invaluable tool for event organizers who want to engage with their audience remotely. With the right platform and features, you can easily create and manage successful virtual events.
To put it simply, virtual reality is a computer-generated simulation of a 3D environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way. This is typically achieved through the use of specialized hardware such as head-mounted displays or gloves with sensors. In other words, virtual reality is an interactive, computer-generated experience that is intended to simulate a real-world environment.
When it comes to the different types of virtual reality, there are generally three main categories. These are as follows:
- Non-immersive VR: Non-immersive virtual reality is the most basic type of virtual reality experience. It typically involves minimal interaction with the environment and no tracking of the user’s movements. Examples of non-immersive VR include web-based experiences such as 360-degree images or videos.
- Semi-immersive VR: Semi-immersive virtual reality is a step up from non-immersive VR, as it involves the user being able to interact with the environment and move around within it. Semi-immersive VR typically uses specialized hardware such as controllers or haptic feedback devices to create a more realistic experience. An example of semi-immersive VR would be a virtual reality game with a controller.
- Fully-immersive VR: Fully-immersive virtual reality is the most advanced and realistic type of virtual reality experience. This type of virtual reality includes tracking of the user’s movements, as well as interactions with the environment. Fully-immersive VR typically requires the use of specialized hardware such as head-mounted displays, gloves with sensors, and other trackers. Examples of fully-immersive VR include virtual reality games, simulations, and educational tools.
No matter the type of virtual reality experience, it’s clear that this technology is continuing to evolve and become more accessible. As technology advances, so too will the range of applications for virtual reality and the types of immersive experiences it can provide.
