Virtual Events: 2020 – The Year They Went Mainstream

Happy New Year! Entering 2021, we reflect on the monumental changes seen in the events industry over the last year. As live events adapted, virtual events became the norm. With technological expectations and demands far-surpassing the weekly Zoom Quiz, at London Filmed, we were able to ensure events could be exhibited online with seamless style and success.

Last year, London Filmed helped over 90 global companies reach thousands with inspiring and interactive online events. We saw conferences, award ceremonies, virtual exhibitions, product launches, and training events all successfully moving online.

We teamed up with a diverse range of virtual event platforms such as Hopin, Swapcard, Brella, Glisser, and Hubilo to suit your event’s unique requirements and deliver a tailor-made, professional end result.

As the year progressed, we streamlined our services; offering a fully supportive event management system to turn your online event ideas into a reality.

Now, as we look to the year ahead, we aim to continue executing inspiring hybrid and virtual events, as well as being there for your live event videography needs.

So, what technology advances are we excited about for 2021?

Here at London Filmed, we look forward to exploring how augmented reality will potentially enhance virtual and live event capabilities. As well as being a genuinely brilliant tool to help convey and explain ideas to your audience, incorporating AR at your virtual event would without a doubt create a completely unforgettable sensory experience.

How could augmented reality be used in the event industry?

Augmented RealityAt your virtual or hybrid event, fully immerse your audience with both visual and audio stimulation. Whether you’re demonstrating a 3D model, walking through a virtual tour, or offering a virtual training session, augmented reality is a sure-fire way to truly engage and inspire. Mercedez-Benz is ahead of the curve by incorporating AR in their training events – using 3D car models to educate their staff.

When live events eventually make their return, exciting AR technology could make networking even easier. Virtual business cards and name tags are predicted to be a major trend with exciting capabilities; check out SnapCard’s app as an example.
