The Rise of Virtual Events

  • Written by

Have you ever attended a virtual event? Right from your computer screen, you can attend a business or industry event, learn about the latest developments, services on offer and even get the opportunity to network. Almost everything you get at an in-person event is possible from one that is virtual. This opens up a whole new world to professionals from around the world.

This type of virtual environment is becoming popular across a variety of industries. But, is it just a temporary measure or there is a future in it? Let’s take a look.

What are Virtual Events?

Simply, virtual events are those that are hosted online and can be accessed by a variety of people remotely. In particular, businesses and industries are choosing to go down this route in order to connect with people around the world. All of the elements of the event can be virtual or there can be some in-person elements that are broadcasted back to an audience.

Virtual events were around before the COVID-19 pandemic. But, they really took off when there was no travel allowed. Industries had to find a way to network, build and educate. So, they turned to technology to help. As the world looks to get back to some normality, virtual events are still going to be popular. It means that people who cannot attend an event abroad are still able to tune in just like they were there in person. So, it means that nobody has to miss out. For example, visit the RX website - - to check out what virtual events they are hosting, as well as if there are any in-person events in the UK near you.

Virtual Events Here to Stay

There is no doubt that virtual events became more popular due to the pandemic. The world almost came to a standstill and while events were cancelled at first, brands had to find a way to move forward and collaborate. This meant having events virtually so that there could still be some exposure and enjoyment.

But, something we do know is that virtual events are here to stay. When they are organized correctly, they are proving to be popular. While some people like the atmosphere of an in-person event, a virtual environment is ideal for many that want to stay at home. It can be most cost-efficient, as well as allow many more people to attend. With so many benefits, they will continue to run. Will virtual events overtake in-person events? Well, only time will tell. But, there is no doubt that people like virtual events and the freedom they can offer.

In particular, if virtual events consist of presentations from industry experts, this is a good format for online. It means that they are still able to present and have a large audience. Some events can also be interactive and allow audiences to ask questions, take polls and interact with the presentation. It all depends on how it is being hosted and the type of event it is. They can be good for employees, as well as business owners.
