With widespread shutdowns still in effect and further shutdowns imminent, virtual events will continue to dominate the business world. However, there is still interest and demand for live events as well. The future of B2B events appears to be a hybrid of the two. Even as the pandemic wanes, we can expect a virtual component to remain in place for many major events due to the overall success they have had. The challenge comes with merging both the virtual and live experience into one holistic event that provides value regardless of how you choose to attend.
Even with some in-person events returning, online events appear poised to continue in abundance, popularity, and effectiveness. Promoting a virtual event is a bit different than those held in person. While the cost is typically much lower without the need for travel or lodging, and being held online opens you up to a worldwide audience, the in-person experience is the biggest draw for many potential attendees. Pulling off a successful online event requires a creative team and collaborative effort between all sales and marketing divisions. Here we look at how to increase attendance at your next online event.

Making your webinar entertaining, educational and engaging is vital to its success. Here we take a look at five keys to an engaging webinar.
