The Zoom Boom happened last year during the pandemic. According to a survey of the e-commerce firm Picodi Zoom was the top video-conferencing tool in the Philippines during the Covid-10 pandemic although most countries in Asia preferred WhatsApp.
Virtual Events is Here to Stay!
According to Forbes Magazine, “In the face of the COVID pandemic, events became virtual out of necessity. As we move into 2021 and beyond, many events will stay virtual not only because of continued safety concerns but also as a result of lessons learned in 2020. Companies found that by going virtual, they opened up their event to an entirely new audience as virtual events are more accessible than in-person events.”
The convenience and affordability of Virtual Events plus the safety factors become a very attractive value propositions. Now organizations and associations are taking a serious look at making virtual events and zoom meetings as a permanent part of their strategy for engagement and communication.
Zoom may be the preferred virtual event app but it takes time to master it. At the same time, if you intend to deliver a professional virtual event, it is wise to get a professional event partner or a Zoom Events Manager who can help you deliver quality events.
One of the first to pivot and pioneer in the online and Zoom events management is Exlinkevents – a 20 year old business events organizer in the Philippines.
Last year, Exlinkevents managed a lot of online events ranging from online meetings, webinars, conferences, MOA signing, product launch, corporate events, alumni homecoming, and association election.
