The Case for Outsourcing

Date

Allow me to set the scene for you: It’s 1 am, you haven’t slept yet. You are sitting in your home office, conveniently located at the dining room table. Bleary-eyed, you log your 15th support request of the night because this virtual event platform is.just.not.working.

It won’t let you do what you need to do. So, you make another coffee. You wait for a response from support. Hoping that this time, your issue will be solved and you can finally go to bed. Or move on to dealing with the 5 emails your client has sent this evening. The last one with a particularly eye-catching capitalised subject line – URGENT.

If this sounds familiar or is giving you PTSD flashbacks, then it may be time to call in reinforcements. Building a virtual event on a platform is not as straightforward and easy as the demo’s make it seem. Things break. Videos don’t load correctly. And no matter how many times you click what support told you to click, the session just won’t show correctly in the app. You are an expert in events, not event technology.

That’s why we offer managed technical services.

Despite the return to live events in many parts of the world, virtual events are still happening. Virtual won’t be going away as it is now standard to have a virtual component to your in-person event. Meaning that you will be planning hybrid events moving forward rather than simply full virtual or in-person.

When you are planning a hybrid event, you are actually planning 2 events. Navigating this new world of event tech can feel frustrating because it is ever-changing. New platforms hit the market all the time and new updates of old platforms. Now, in this brave new hybrid world, you need to find the perfect in-person venue and online venue that fits your budget and expectations.
