This year has changed the way marketers look at their event programs. According to PCMA, 76% of event planners reported going virtual in 2020.
Looking to 2021 and beyond, one thing is clear: virtual and hybrid events are here to stay.
Alongside traditional in-person events, there’s now an even greater opportunity to reach and engage new and larger audiences, as well as deliver more leads, pipeline, and revenue. But this will require a reimagining of the traditional relationship between marketers and event planners. Technology’s role will also move to the forefront as the need to deliver value across all event types becomes the norm.
eMarketer was pleased to moderate a Tech-Talk Webinar featuring Cvent's Mike Dietrich, vice president of product marketing, and Alyssa Peltier, senior manager of event marketing.
