The past few years have witnessed remarkable transformations within the events industry. Emerging from the challenges of the pandemic, the concept of “the new normal” has taken centre stage. During our recent event, Gevme CONNECT Fall 2023- Omnichannel: The New Normal For Event, we had the privilege of sharing our latest updates, demonstrating how we’re empowering event teams to not just adapt but thrive in this evolving landscape.
It’s been a journey of change and adaptation, one that has highlighted the resilience and creativity of event professionals. Our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions remains unwavering as we navigate this exciting new terrain. We’re here to support you in crafting exceptional event experiences that captivate, connect, and inspire.
The Journey to Omnichannel
The pandemic necessitated a shift to entirely virtual events. But we’ve been reminded of the irreplaceable value of in-person gatherings. The energy and serendipity can’t be replicated digitally.
However, events have nevertheless changed. Attendee journeys now span both physical and digital touchpoints – from online promotion and registration to onsite check-in and post-event content. Interactions happen across channels.
Omnichannel is the new normal. It’s about crafting a unified experience across all channels attendees engage with. The Apple WWDC event exemplified this blended model – an exclusive in-person event made accessible to millions virtually.
Gevme’s Omnichannel Vision
At Gevme, our vision is to provide event teams with an integrated suite of solutions to deliver seamless omnichannel experiences.
We focus on 4 key pillars:
- Enhancing Customer Experience: Providing consistent branding and access across channels through our integrated tools. Our unified attendee account is a game-changer, eliminating login hassle.
- Unleashing Creativity: Intuitive tools like our Visual Builder and Experiences Marketplace make it easy to create stylish, engaging digital and physical touchpoints.
- Boosting Productivity: Gevme centralizes event content creation and syndication. AI-powered innovations like Project Spark eliminate tedious tasks.
- Deriving Data Insights: As an end-to-end platform, Gevme unifies data providing comprehensive analytics on event and attendee engagement.
