The exhibition and events industry is changing, and progressing in order to adapt to current trends and situations. As players in this industry, we should continue to embrace it and view it as a thrilling time, full of opportunity and potential. We must constantly seek ways in which we can be at the forefront instead of continually playing catch-up.”
The launch witnessed a demonstration of InnVirtual to industry partners, guests and the Media. “Going virtual is the way forward. In this current health climate, it is the safest way to organise an exhibition or any event that requires human attendance and participation. On top of that, it is cost effective, sustainable, guarantees a global reach and higher attendance and extends an event lifecycle up to 60 days. This platform is created to deliver the value in the entire value chain and we are proud to provide the opportunity to our stakeholders and other industry players to be part of this new way of approaching the industry” said Richard to close the presentation.
InnVirtual in hybrid version is currently ready for implementation. Hybrid events are events that combine an in-person experience with a virtual experience. Going beyond live streaming, it allows the in-person attendees to experience the event in real life and opportunities for creative collaboration especially with event venues to deliver seamless hybrid experiences. The partnership allows venues to showcase food, performances and service excellence whilst leaving the technical expertise to InnVirtual. This is especially important in today’s social distancing environment.
