Due to the current situation in event industry, events are being forced to either adapt or be postponed, in the worst cases even canceled. This article is however not meant to cause you deep depressions from cancellation, nor postponement, so let's find out how you can easily switch your in-person event to a virtual event with Eventee!
Benefits of virtual events and Eventee app in one place
The biggest advantage of a virtual event is that your attendees can watch your streams from wherever they want. On the other hand, the big disadvantage is the lack of personal connection and difficult communication, which leads to less engagement. And here is where Eventee app steps in. Thanks to the live streaming integration in Eventee you can simply stream your live sessions right through the mobile app and enjoy all the benefits of other powerful features at the same time.
