Next-Generation Virtual Events
2020 was the year events were forced to move online.
In spite of the uncertainty, we had to take the leap.
We knew that more than ever, people needed to connect.
We have now adjusted to this new reality. Virtual events have become less daunting.
The barriers to entry are lower than they used to be. Anyone can dip their toes in this new format.
This had led to an onslaught of virtual events. The space has become saturated.
The novelty has worn off. All virtual events look the same. Zoom fatigue certainly does not help.
People register for events online but do not show up. When they do, they are easily distracted.
Going virtual may feel like money and time going down the drain.
It is time for a new generation of virtual events to emerge.
We need to move past seeing virtual events as a stopgap and embrace the new possibilities that come with it.
It is time to create engaging virtual experiences that stand out.
Are you ready to take this new leap?
