One of the pandemic’s most notorious motifs were the countless images of empty stadiums, concert halls, and event venues. Sites that normally represent places of large gatherings, all left vacant.
The shift to virtual live events was a sudden and dramatic switch for many B2B and B2C brands. Now, over a year since the pandemic first shook the world, live virtual events are proving their residency as a top event marketing channel.
One of the industry’s leading softwares, Vimeo, has announced its release of Vimeo Events as a platform for producing, promoting, and measuring live virtual events. The solution’s customizable live production studio and audience engagement tools help optimize webinars, product launches, and other large-scale virtual events.
