Through all the tiers and lockdowns the really big pivot is beyond any single company reformatting its events. It’s in how the majority have been able to move from occasional dalliances with the virtual world to taking a game changing part in it, daily.
So one of the real benefits of the last 10 plus months is in knowing that the digital skills everyone has learned, developed, honed and perfected will play an integral part in the new-look event world, post-Covid-19.
With time always permitting, we have all been making a whole lot of lists too of course, from things to do today to favourite films to what we’re going to do when curtain lifts again.
In the spirit of both those things, EIN has compiled a ‘10 of the best’ hitlist of what’s available now to event planners putting shows of any sort online.
Be prepared for a practiced, refined set of solutions. Equal measures of how to build lasting relationships with attendees, sponsors and exhibitors, remote multi presenter panels, the most advanced expo booths, picture in picture functionality, the best engagement tools and much more.

Imagine an event space transformed into a website and you’ve basically understood how Showcase is producing its clients’ hybrid and virtual events.
