- Attendee Engagement
Engagement remains one of the main barriers when planning a successful virtual event. In-person events may be better for engagement but that doesn’t mean virtual events don’t provide any opportunities. Cvent’s Virtual Attendee Hub uses interactive engagement tools such as live session Q&A and gamification to encourage attendees to stay engaged by awarding them points for taking actions, such as joining a session, submitting feedback, or visiting a virtual booth. With messaging capabilities in a mobile app, attendees can meet each other virtually and set up meetings.
- Networking Opportunities
Just because attendees can’t shake hands at a virtual event doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities to network. A mobile event app, whether used on the phone or in a web browser, can connect attendees and provide a messaging system. Once attendees connect on the app, they can schedule one-on-one appointments with each other, exhibitors, or sponsors. Using registration data, you can connect attendees with similar interests together and set up group chats. You also have the option to enable event attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors to connect throughout your event.
You can feature exhibitors and sponsors on your event home page and enable them to showcase their brand and content. You can even have sponsored sessions, providing additional brand exposure for your partners and additional revenue for your company. If you are looking for sponsors, you can attract them with powerful brand awareness and lead generation via virtual booths, video conferencing, and more. Allow attendees to self-schedule meetings with sponsors and exhibitors and instantly share their contact information with inbound lead capture.
- Insightful Data
The virtual attendee hub can help you discover insights that matter – how many people were in attendance? what are the demographics? Was your event successful? Is there room for improvement? How can you prove the ROI to your sponsors and your boss?

It’s a good idea to consider adding virtual events to your event programs. Sure, virtual events may not hold the same power and value as face-to-face interactions, but considering the amount of money and time that goes into hosting an in-person event or conference, it is in companies’ best interests to utilize virtual events. Having a good execution plan, the proper technology, and the right virtual event platform is key but once you have them sorted out, you can deliver informative, and engaging experiences to attendees for much cheaper and less stress.
