Events.com announced the launch of digital tools to help event planners create and manage hybrid virtual and live events within a mobile platform. As the event industry begins to re-engage in-person attendees after a year of virtual events, Events.com’s new features integrate with streaming platforms Clubhouse, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, and Instagram; as well as wearable technology.
New hybrid event planning features from Events.com include:
- iFrame DIY white-lable digital event landing pages
- Live video streaming plugins and seamless integration with YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram and Facebook
- Event registration integration powering signup for Clubhouse Rooms, Twitter Spaces and Facebook Rooms; as well as YouTube, Zoom and Vimeo
- Planning and management tools that integrate with Strava, Fitbit, Polar and Garmin; with activity certificates and challenge bib numbers
In 2020, Events.com helped the industry respond to changing requirements by building tools to support a transition to virtual event planning, event cancellations and refund processes, attendee communications, and more. The company’s enhanced virtual event planning tools include virtual event calendars, virtual attendee challenge tools, and features that maximize virtual event attendance and participation.
“No matter the challenge put before us, humans will always find a way to connect around shared experiences,” said Mitch Thrower, co-founder and CEO, Events.com. “Part of our new mission for 2021 is to help the world get back together and experience new and meaningful moments. For event planners, the pent-up demand from a year of cancelled and virtual events is about to spark a very busy time and we’re here to help make their re-starts as simple and successful as possible.”
