A Step Towards Sustainability
While Zoom fatigue is a phenomenon many have become quite familiar with, the enticing benefits of holding virtual events is hard to ignore. Some of the most notable benefits include:
It has become apparent that virtual events have exhibited higher registration and attendance rates compared to their face-to-face counterparts. This is not exactly surprising as they are more efficient and accessible. Attendees won’t need to travel ad-hoc and will just participate in the comforts of their homes.
Virtual venues allow the collection of more data on attendees and attendee experience compared to physical ones. Analytics on content consumption KPIs, heat maps of visited areas, and real-time event attendance can provide valuable data that are hard to gather in face-to-face events where data registration is the only option to gather data.
When you opt to hold your event virtually, you have the option to change its geographical scope significantly. For instance, rather than taking an event on the road to bring it closer to the target audience, an event can now cover several states, time zones, and even countries.
Virtual events tend to be shorter, they are also more productive. Although you might spend less time catching up with small talk, you can get down to business more quickly. This way, you truly maximize your time during events.
Hosting events virtually can contribute to your company’s green agenda as it removes the logistics elements such as hotel, travel, energy consumption, etc. Many virtual platforms also come with a widget to display the event’s environmental impact by providing an estimate of the CO2 emission based on agenda, complexity of event, and attendees.
Undeniably, virtual events are not only more accessible, they are also more cost-effective for attendees. For starters, they won’t need to travel and they can save on time—two key selling points for attendees. This also means more development and growth opportunities for attendees without breaking the bank.
