Hear from one of our customers
The value of an event organiser designing a virtual event platform cannot be overestimated. As the features
list demonstrates, there’s an intuitive understanding of how an online event needs to function, with support
being a major part of the process. Next year virtual/hybrid will become more relevant and the “Connect”
platform will cater for this.
It’s no exaggeration to say that plenty of Angel Business Communications’ existing client base have had what
can only be described as bad experiences attending virtual events hosted on a range of other platforms – to
the extent that some have now issued a blanket ban on what they
see as a waste of marketing spend.
However, those companies who have engaged with Connect, either for the events Angel has run itself, or those
run for third parties, have been universally impressed.
Paul Trowbridge, Managing Director of EVITO comments:
“The Connect virtual event platform has opened up new opportunities for us, who, like most event organisers, was impacted severely by the pandemic and resulting lock-downs. We looked at a wide range of virtual event platforms that didn’t reach the price point or functionality that our clients required but in working with the team at Angel we have now found the best solution for them.”
Paul continues: “I was confident that Connect gave us a virtual event platform that we could stand behind and we have already run a series of very successful events across Europe and our clients have been delighted with the performance of the platform, and the attendee feedback has been almost universally positive.”
With no immediate end in sight to various flavours of local, regional, or national lockdowns, and with social distancing very much the new normal, virtual events are going to be here for some time yet.
“We don’t see virtual events ever replacing physical events, nor would we want them to. However, they have been a great interim way for us to keep our communities connected, networking and learning, whilst physical travel and gatherings are not possible,” says Sukhi Bhadal, CEO of Angel Business Communications.
He adds: “We are not a software company, we are an events company which has had to develop a software platform for our own virtual events. We are now offering this to other event organisers. Over and above the Connect software platform, we offer our expertise to put together and run the virtual event. We know what is needed and provide maximum support to ensure a successful virtual and hybrid conference, exhibition or a combination of the two.”
