Aventri also revamped its mobile event app to support hybrid events.
Event management software (EMS) company Aventri launched Aventri Virtual Events 2.0 for interactive virtual and hybrid events on April 6.
Virtual Events 2.0 presents a major rewrite, from its sleek design to new features that drive engagement and ease of use, the company said in a statement.
According to the software maker, the solution is pre-configured to deliver modern, “Wow!” events right out of the box. Using templates and do-it-yourself customization tools, marketing and meeting professionals can create a stunning, branded event in a few minutes.
Aventri also revamped its mobile event app to support hybrid events. Organizers can continue to use Aventri for digital-only and in-person-only events. However, with the latest enhancements, virtual and mobile solutions work in sync to deliver a unified experience for in-person and online attendees.
Virtual Events 2.0 is a native part of the core Aventri platform. Organisers can produce virtual, hybrid, and in-person events with one platform that combines:
- A best-in-class virtual and hybrid event solution
- Redesigned mobile app to support hybrid events
- Onsite technology for in-person and hybrid gatherings
- Tools to manage the entire event lifecycle, from venue sourcing to event registration, marketing, engagement, analytics, and reporting
“Aventri continues to innovate and lead in the end-to-end event management space,” said CEO Jim Sharpe. “It’s clear hybrid is the future of event marketing. Our research shows 89 percent of global organizers say virtual will remain a vital part of their long-term strategies, even after live events resume. “We’re seeing an uptick in activity, as enterprises ramp up for the return of live events in the third and fourth quarters of this year,” Sharpe continued. “Using Virtual Events 2.0, organizers don’t need to master different platforms. They can go virtual now and be hybrid-ready in the near future when live events come back.”
“Large and small enterprises need to get their virtual events up and running fast,” explained Shane Edmonds, chief technology officer, Aventri. “The key is to streamline the process across the board.
“Our new virtual and hybrid solution delivers sophisticated technology that’s simple to use,” Edmonds continued. “It’s easy for attendees to network, whether they participate online or in person. It’s easy for exhibitors to make connections that move the needle for their company. And it’s easy for organizers to produce secure, best-in-class virtual and hybrid experiences that deliver a solid return on investment.”
Virtual Events 2.0 is available starting April 15, 2021. Aventri offers data-driven, end-to-end event and meeting management solutions for virtual, hybrid, and in-person events.
