While the pandemic of 2020 disrupted businesses across all sectors, technology has disrupted life for marketers like never before. With so many new platforms, digital tools, and trends impacting the marketing and communications space, it is important for marketers, brand leaders, and communications professionals to invest in growing their knowledge and staying abreast of the latest trends.
One way to do this is to make a firm commitment to attending at least one marketing event every month. The forecast for 2021 is bright, with several such events being lined up, with the best names in the business.
By leveraging the top-notch virtual events platforms, they can curate highly engaging, vibrant, and value-based events that can be attended by driven, ambitious marketers everywhere.
Benefits of Virtual Marketing Events
Traditional marketing events were hosted in physical spaces amidst fanfare and some marquee names from the industry at a local and national level. With the advent of sophisticated virtual marketing events platforms like Hubilo, marketing events can bring together leaders from across the world.
Borders are no longer a barrier, and it’s a lot easier to bring together the best minds in any domain for an engaged conversation, knowledge sharing, and networking. In turn, this makes it possible to curate richer, more diverse, and unique conversations.
Grow Your Networks
A high engagement level is another perk of such platforms, which come with value-added features such as one-on-one chats and video calls and hangouts in attendee lounges. You can also choose to be seated at the same virtual table as a delegate you’d like to meet, as is the case in a physical conference. Hence, networking with people across the world is a wonderful by-product of virtual events. Here’s a quick round-up of upcoming marketing conferences that must be on your radar in 2021.
Hosted by Hubilo, an online hybrid events platform, the upcoming Restart 2021 summit brings together 4000+ events industry professionals under one roof! Over 40 industry leaders from the marketing world will share their experiences and forecasts for marketing trends and narratives for the next two to three years. A stand-out topic at the summit will be how virtual events will disrupt the marketing space and uniquely ignite conversations and content.
