5 reasons your business should continue to run virtual events

During the course of the last 12 months the way we work has changed significantly.

Home-based or remote work has become the norm for many office workers, with many reporting feeling happier working from home on a permanent or semi-permanent basis.

Yet, as the UK government’s roadmap out of lockdown continues, many businesses are assessing how to run their business after the pandemic. Virtual meetings and events are probably here to stay, but why should you keep them?

Keep your costs low

As many businesses have found during the last 12 months, moving to home-based and remote systems can cut operational costs considerably. Using a virtual event platform to host events and meetings is another way to keep your costs low in the future.

A traditional meeting or event space could cost thousands of pounds just to hire before the cost of catering and drinks etc. For a relatively small fee you could use a virtual event platform with less cost and less fuss.

Security and Reliability

In the last year, we have all come to understand how fragile our physical world can be. From extreme weather events like flooding to pandemics, physical events can be cancelled at the drop of a hat.

By keeping your events virtual, you can ensure they still get the go ahead even when unforeseen circumstances happen. You will also be ensuring the safety of your event, staff and attendees, as everybody can be involved from the comfort of their own home.

Reach a wider audience

Without the limits of physical and geographical space, virtual meetings have opened work on a global scale like never before. Although time zones do need to be carefully considered, employers can now create virtual events with an almost unlimited number of guests, wherever they are in the world.

If your company is, or plans to grow on a global scale, virtual meetings are definitely going to help with scalable expansion.

Interaction and participation

Although many people are hankering for social interaction again, some employees have actually found themselves more comfortable and productive while working from home. This extends to participation and interaction in team meetings and at events.

Added participation and interaction helps to facilitate growth and development. Therefore, continuing virtual events and meetings could have a positive impact on your team’s experience at work and help boost your productivity and profits over the long term.

Make a real climate difference

If your staff are located across the country, or the globe, there could be huge environmental impacts to getting everyone to travel to and from large team events or industry gatherings. Keeping your events and meetings virtual could significantly reduce your carbon footprint and make a real difference in the fight against climate change.

Additionally, getting inactive users to turn their cameras off in a virtual meeting could save 96% of the energy used if the cameras were on. Saving your team on bills and helping the planet.
