vFairs, a platform for hybrid and virtual events, announced it is integrating Zoom into its solution in order to deliver Zoom webinars and support remote interactions that bring together on-site and virtual attendees.
According to Statistica, as of April 2020, 87% of professional events planned for 2020 had been canceled and 66% had been postponed. However, in just one year, vFairs has grown from 40 to 223 employees and expanded from 14 to 53 countries serving 150 industries.
The new integration will enable remote speakers to address an on-premises audience and broadcast to remote attendees simultaneously, including handling questions from both groups in real-time. With this new hybrid conferencing solution, event organizers can increase the number of attendees to accommodate substantially larger audiences more cost-effectively, said the company. Event planners also will be able to take advantage of the vFairs’ immersive event platform with 3D graphics and animation, digital content, chat networking, and outstanding customer technical support.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that virtual events can be extremely successful, and we anticipate that remote access will be part of conferences and trade shows even after the pandemic subsides,” said Muhammad Younas, CEO of vFairs. “Our integration with Zoom will make it easier to offer virtual event support from a single platform, rather than having to use a different interface to access live broadcast and interact.”
