Hi ,

For most event professionals, online events are a seemingly new solution, but, from an audience perspective, conventional online events are already looking aged and boring.

Now is a good time for event organisers to get back to the drawing board and think about how to keep people engaged and more importantly, how to convince attendees that the value of a virtual event is as good, if not better, as a physical one.

We need to continuously be pushing boundaries to stay ahead of the game. This week we share with you information about our Virtual Experience Makers series and how we intend to help you to transform your event with the learning from this series. We also share with you top stories from around the world of events and more.

As a quick reminder, you're receiving this email because you subscribed to the GEVME Weekly newsletter or may have registered for one of our events (unsubscribe anytime below).

We welcome comments, high-fives or topic ideas. We always like hearing from you. Please do not forget to share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues.
