Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3lc72w/global_virtual) has announced the addition of the "Global Virtual Event Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global Virtual Event market will grow at a CAGR of 21% to 2018
Hybrid events are a combination of virtual components with physical events. They help the audience to have face-to-face interaction with exhibitors at a physical event. In addition, a virtual environment helps reduce operating costs and reach more attendees. Hybrid events serve two audiences: one that cannot attend the event and one that wants to review the events that they have missed. As virtual events are mostly conducted in dire economic situations when there are travel restrictions and budget cuts, there is added pressure to generate ROI. These events help increase customer participation and capture more market share across geographical regions. Moreover, these kinds of events help expand networking opportunities and improve the brand image of the company.
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increased global convergence of information. As a result of rapid globalization, enterprises are expanding their businesses in various geographies. This in turn increases the demand for international communication facilities for sharing information. Communication is facilitated by messages, emails, calls, conferences, face-to-face meetings, and online chats, thereby driving the need for virtual events.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the leakage of confidential information. Virtual events facilitate access to enterprise information using external networks, increasing the risk of data security breaches.
The Global Virtual Event market can be divided into four segments:
- Collaboration Software
- Unified Communication and Video Conferencing
