Switching to Virtual Meetings

  • 1.  Switching to Virtual Meetings

    Posted 10-07-2020 08:24
    Anybody out there looking at shifting larger corporate F2F meetings (50+ attendees) to Virtual who'd like to share their experiences using Virtual Attendee Hub?  I'm trying to get my head round the different cost elements and technical challenges so we can work out the average cost of Virtual vs F2F and to make sure we don't drop the ball when organising Virtual meetings.

    Be great to share experiences with others on this journey.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Sally,

    Happy Friday! 

    @April Sailsbury, I recall you asked a question recently regarding the Virtual Attendee Hub. Do you have any insights to share with Sally?

    Sally, in addition to discussing your experiences with your peers in the Open Forum, feel free to connect with your Cvent Account Team if you have not already. They can always provide additional information, share case studies and success stories, etc. :)

    Thanks Danni – our local Cvent team have been very supportive but we'd love to share experiences with similar organisations too and get a better understanding of what is involved, how they have overcome challenges with internal IT departments etc ��

    @Sally Hounsham Feel free to message or email me and I will share our experience. To be honest, it absolutely depends on the set up of your event.  ​
