The event industry has been embracing digitalisation but mostly on the ticketing, management and logistical side.
Platforms such as EventBrite solved the ticketing-related problems and made it easier for event organisers to sell their events through purely digital means and platforms such as Meetup.com, Facebook groups etc. solved the problem of building a community.
Forbiddance of large gatherings by authorities at all levels across the world required the event industry to rethink its business model. Video conferencing tools such as Citrix, Zoom and Google hangout have been used to connect audience for seminars or workshops. But there haven’t been players which allow you to host an entire conference fully online.
Here is look at some upcoming end-to-end conferencing platforms;
- Hopin allows users to host the event, sell tickets and provide data analytics.
- Airmeet is designed to host all kinds of virtual events such as conferences, fairs, workshops etc.
- Wonder helps you organise an event and allows participants to break out into smaller virtual rooms to have closed group discussions.
- Attendify specialises in allowing participants to network seamlessly apart from all the other aspects of hosting and streaming a conference.
- Talque provides all the essential features to host a conference along with managing the calendar for speakers as well as providing sufficient flexibility for organisers to incorporate sponsorship-related material through the web real estate
