As CSG Turkey’s CEO Ozlem OZEN says, “We know nothing beats the
value of face-to-face meetings,” however, what happens when in-person
meetings and events are restricted because of events like the coronavirus?
Should meeting and event professionals just cancel their events altogether?
The answer for many will be no, thanks to technology, like virtual event
A virtual event is an online event that involves people interacting in a virtual
environment on the web, rather than meeting in a physical location. Virtual
events are based upon content, engagement and data and offer multi-session
online events, often featuring live streaming, webinars and webcasts and can
also be combined with a physical live event to add further value and reach or
produced as a stand-alone event.We’ve a variety of solutions
available providing the most creative and effective virtual event solutions that
will help your event thrive digitally online.
If you want your audience to stay connected and fully engaged throughout your
virtual event you need powerful content and interactive features. Breaking the
ice with an online audience can be tough. Fortunately, you can use interactive
features like polls, Q&A sessions, and chats. The chat sessions will break down
barriers and encourage the audience to participate more in your virtual event
and you can share pre-recorded content, host virtual exhibitions and breakout
sessions – this will make your virtual event feel more personal and
deliver measurable results for you and your sponsors.

Instead of Cancelling, let CSG The Event Company Helps You Go Virtual: It's hard to
deny that coronavirus is having a serious impact on the world and live events.
Rather than cancelling your events altogether, save time and enjoy the flexibility
of a fully integrated virtual event platform.
It’s Less Expensive
Each destination offers its own set of exciting adventures to experience. We will brainstorm and come up with innovative and custom activities to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of your group. We will present you with activity choices to consider, coordinate all registrations, take care of any special accommodations, and ensure all transportation coordinated and confirmed.
It Saves Time
Because your event is virtual, you’ll also save yourself, your staff, and your
attendees so much time. Although virtual events do require some setup time
(e.g. event website, registration, event marketing, and promotion, etc.) it’s
tremendously less than that of an in-person event. They also require no travel
time! So, your employees and attendees can use that time to work on all the
other important things that need their attention.
Planners are always trying to increase their event’s reach to engage more
people. With virtual events, that’s easy! You can easily promote your event by
sharing the link to your website and social media channels. People from across
the world can join instantly without thinking about travel. Hosting a virtual event
allows planners to grow their audience and get everyone to participate, no
matter where they live
It’s Flexible and Variable
Because virtual events take place online, you have a lot of flexibility in how you
broadcast your event. Whether you’re hosting a thought leadership conference,
a virtual town hall, a sales kickoff, or another type of event, you can choose to
make the sessions interactive, offer different language options, invite guest
speakers, and more.
It’s Easier to Make Connections
Because virtual events tend to be faster-paced since attendees don’t have to
move from session to session or booth to booth, it can be easier to make
connections with other attendees and speakers than an in-person event. And
since everything is online, attendees can easily record important information,
like people’s names, titles, etc., right on their tablet or computer.
It’s Easy to Collect Feedback
Like in-person events, feedback is crucial for virtual events. But unlike inperson events, attendees are constantly online at virtual events, which means
they can easily answer real-time polls or surveys in sessions. Not only will this
real-time feedback help presenters gauge how their session is going (which is
especially valuable since these presenters cannot see attendees’ faces during
some virtual events), but it will also be useful to measure the overall success of
your virtual event.
It’s Easy to Measure Results
Although the data that virtual events produce varies depending on what
platform and event management software you use, it should be easier to gather
certain data on your event and attendees during your virtual event than an inperson event. Why? Because everything is done online, so it can be easily
tracked. For instance, you can know when your attendees logged on, from
where, the number of people attending, how they are paying, and so much
