As always, EventMind is here to guide you through the event technology available out there. EventMind helps organisations design, develop and manage virtual events and experiences. We enable organisations to create community, encourage collaboration and wow attendees using digital tools and platforms. Our expert teams use their industry knowledge and our signature Virtual Profit Framework to create custom and strategic virtual events which support organisational goals, needs and challenges. The four pillars of our framework are also our core values: content, community, creativity and collaboration.
EventMind does not endorse any particular virtual event platform or software. We review the platforms available on the market monthly (through a combination of client feedback, test events and demos). There’s no platform which is an ‘all in one’ or ‘all-inclusive’ solution when it comes to virtual event platforms. Bear in mind, most virtual event platforms were originally live event apps or software. Covid19 accelerated many platforms to pivot into creating virtual event solutions. In the long run, this seems to be a smart move as hybrid events are likely to become standard (especially if you understand how to monetize hybrid events and maximise global audience reach).
