At the start of 2020, virtual events were not on many people’s calendars. Fast-forward to 2022, and it’s clear virtual events are here to stay. The majority (70%) of business event professionals and suppliers have moved whole or portions of in-person events to a virtual platform. 

And with the global virtual events market projected to be worth around $504 billion by 2028, we can expect more organizers pivoting from in-person conferences to virtual, and with good reason. 

There are plenty of advantages to producing virtual events including:

  • The flexibility of holding events at any time
  • Expanding your event’s reach
  • Saving on event costs
  • Recruiting speakers who would otherwise not be able to attend an in-person event
  • Inviting attendees who would otherwise not be able to attend an in-person event
  • The ability to repurpose event content with video
  • Lowering your event carbon footprint
