Contribute Data. Receive Data
With many more organizations now facing the need to take their conferences and other events online, we working to update the data that we’ve collected for many years about virtual conferences.
As we have before, we’ll freely share our findings, but we need your help to make this work. Please participate, or ask the appropriate person at your organization to participate in our brief online survey. Your participation is important even if you have never offered a virtual conference before.
Survey participants get the satisfaction of knowing they have contributed to our collective knowledge about virtual conferences and other virtual events.
They’ll also get valuable data and the chance to be entered in a drawing for one of five Amazon gift cards worth $50 (winners can use the gift card for whatever they’d like that’s available on Amazon).
The 2018 Report
Our previous report, based on survey data collected from 215 organizations, was issued in 2018. The 60-page report provides:
- An overview of the current state of virtual events
- Data for how virtual events are being used from three perspectives
- The operational perspective
- The business perspective
- The organizational perspective
- Insights from authors Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, who together have nearly three decades of experience in helping organizations plan and implement learning and technology initiatives and who host an annual virtual event themselves
This comprehensive report is designed for decision-makers who want leading-edge knowledge to support their strategic planning for virtual events. It is equally valuable to vendors who serve or aim to serve the events and meetings industry.
There simply is no better source for understanding the emerging role of virtual events in the events and educational event industry. If you are considering a virtual conference or other virtual event, you are on the verge of making a significant investment. The Virtual Events Report will help you learn fast and get on the road to success.
“Nearly 80 percent of organizations that have held a virtual event found that registrations either met or exceeded expectations. Of organizations that have held a virtual event in the past, 92.3 percent indicated they would do so again—and many already have multiple times.”
