Holding an online event or conference is a cost effective way of bringing your customers or colleagues together in an environmentally sound and sustainable way. Crowd has successfully delivered events for international corporations and governments since 2019.
What is a Virtual Event or Conference?
An online event or conference consists of a digital platform that acts as a hub for speakers or delegates to get together via video conference. A virtual or hybrid event platform typically includes a registration module with a dashboard where attendees can control what seminars or one-to-one sessions they attend.
Why Should I Hold a Virtual Event?
Online events benefit from being relatively inexpensive to run.
If you compare the cost of booking conference centres or hotels, flights and accommodation for speakers and attendees the cost can be prohibitive, and showing return on investment is a challenge.
Alternatively, an online conference will allow your organisation to meet virtually with potential customers via video conference from their own offices, homes or nearest coffee shop.
As well as needing less investment, in terms of staging a live event, a virtual event may well achieve greater take-up by being easier to attend around other work meetings and home life.
Cutting travel also dramatically lowers the carbon footprint of the event, which contributes to meeting the Corporate Social Responsibility targets set by many companies and governments globally.
Data collection for future action is also guaranteed, where perhaps at a live event you may have been reliant on collecting business cards.
Certainly during the pandemic, where many people around the world were forced to work via video conference, the online event has proved a successful way to engage with new customers in an economical, convenient and sustainable way.
Crowd has worked with several multinational companies and governments to hold virtual events and trade missions. Our internally developed GoDigitalExpo virtual event technology software provides the tools that event managers need, and comes with the following key features:
Event hub website
Email communications integration
Itinerary management calendar for attendees
One-to-one session booker with calendar features
Integration with video conferencing software
Our onboarding process begins with a workshop, helping us to establish some of the basic event and delegate interface requirements, which are then incorporated into the customised system.
Crowd then advise on marketing and managing your event to achieve the desired outcome for your organisation, such as data collection or metrics relating to brand perception for example.
Our events management team is on standby throughout the event to provide technical support or assistance, though a full manual and guidance is provided in plenty of time before the event should you prefer to do things yourselves.
