Networking and Community Building Through Virtual Events
Networking remains one of the main reasons why people attend events. Even without the face-to-face interactions, virtual events provide new opportunities for attendees to connect. The data being collected on their preferences and interests can be used to engineer serendipity and create meaningful connections..
Another added benefit of virtual events is their unique ability to forge thriving communities. They break geographical boundaries by providing a platform for individuals with shared interests to gather in creative ways that extend beyond the time-frame of an event.
