Wed,Mar 10,2021 by Viktorija Marković

The year 2020 experienced a sharp rise in the number of virtual conferences being held in the place of physical conferences and this trend will continue in 2021 too. Reasons?

1. Cost-Effective
This is the most important benefit of online conferences. Virtual conferences will help you in saving a lot of money. Thanks to virtual events, the overall cost of putting on your event will be greatly reduced, 75 percent less expensive to be specific. The only thing planners have to worry about paying is the costs of the virtual meeting platform.

2. Convenient
Everyone can easily attend online conferences. All you need is a working internet connection. You can even attend these conferences by using your smartphone. Also, online conferences are available for a lifetime.

3. You can easily collect feedback
Like in-person events, feedback is crucial for virtual events. Your attendees will be always available during your virtual conference, which means they can easily answer real-time polls or surveys in sessions.

4. Virtual conferences are global
Planners are always trying to increase their event’s reach to engage more people. With virtual events, that’s easy! Your attendees can join your event without traveling. People from across the world can join instantly without thinking about travel. Thus, virtual conferences will help you in growing your audience.

5. The platform will gather lots of data
Data collection is typically much easier when you host a virtual conference. Virtual platforms let you know exactly who your audience is and what they do.

6. It Saves Time
Because your event is virtual, you’ll also save yourself, your staff, and your attendees so much time. Although virtual events do require some setup time, it’s tremendously less than that of an in-person event. They also require no travel time!

7. Easy Networking
Using live text, audio, and video chat, attendees can engage with industry specialists to create connections and get detailed, personalized insights regarding the agenda of the conference.

8. Reduced Environmental Footprint
Virtual conferences eliminate the use of brochures or any supplementary material that cause paper waste, and instead make this information available in the form of online resources. In addition, other aspects such as the removal of travel can further reduce the carbon footprint assosicated with your event.
