Getting real about virtual events

2020 sure has been event-ful. Online platforms have proven increasingly valuable, especially in the business-to-business space, enabling more knowledge sharing, wider audience reach and networking opportunities than ever before!

Learn something new every day

Virtual events have removed the constraints of travel, parking and security check-in times, but their back-to-back volumes can make for overwhelming choice and calendar overlaps. For those that do make the effort to Zoom in, you’re usually guaranteed some form of valuable take out from the thought leadership of those that have bravely jumped into the virtual space (otherwise you’d be giving the lecture yourself).

On track with event registration goals

Bizcommunity’s platforms and one-on-one service levels have a proven track record of getting desired responses to industry event promotion, allowing event organisers to take care of planning a successful event, while we take care of promotions.
