Events might have changed forever. We would love to show you how to make your events future proof with Momice.
Trends for online events
The numbers from our software indicate that the number of events in July - October of this year, dropped less drastically than expected. However, the majority shifted to online. As I look at the trends in the online field, I notice a couple of things.
Potential. The reach of online events is infinite. You are no longer limited by the maximum capacity of your event venue — the programme and the software are the only boundaries. If you involve your audience the right way, online events feel even more personal than real life events.
Competition. You’re facing fierce competition, as you are not only competing with other events, but all daily activities of your audience are in fact competitors. The no-show for online events is therefore often higher than for real life events, making it even more important to clearly communicate the proposition and added value of your event. Plus, the quality has to be high — both in terms of content and online experience.
Programme. We are shifting from half day or full day events to shorter sessions of 30 to 60 minutes, spread out over more days or even weeks. The programme is divided into multiple smaller parts, for which each participant can sign up individually.
Experience. No more endless keynotes, but shorter, in-depth sessions filled with audience interaction. Keeping your audience engaged is crucial, as they are only one click away from leaving your event. And once they’re out, they rarely come back. Luckily, there are more and more tools available for online events.
Location. Your event location moves from a real life venue to a URL and studios take the place of large halls. These studios can be anywhere, from ‘home-made’ in a company’s office, to a professional studio with green screens for virtual events.
Now that things are changing so rapidly, it is important that your event software is flexible enough to meet the needs of event professionals. For example:
Marketing & communication. To make your event stand out, you need unique, attractive mailings and a clear and professional event website.
Registration. The registration process needs to be easy for the invitee, and advanced for the organiser. Think complete automation with maximum numbers for sub-sessions and different target audiences for complexer programmes.
Participation & experience. Participants are looking for a clear and personalised overview of the various live streams or program elements — and clear guidances between the sessions.
Interaction. Organisers want to interact with the audience via live chat, questions and polls. And the audience wants to actively participate in the online event.
Data. After the event, you want to know exactly who attended the event, and which sessions. Only then, you are able to chart the complete customer journey and provide your contacts with relevant information and content in the future.
