One of the most exciting aspects of the corporate event space is the rate at which technological advancements affect the industry. Mike Lysko, our CEO, explores the ways in which quantum computing might alter the way we orchestrate and attend events.
The event industry plummeted into uncertainty in 2020 and had to make swift adjustments to survive. The switch to virtual events and gatherings is arguably the most successful adjustment that came from COVID. Online meetings, conferences, exhibitions, and even parties became commonplace as people adjusted to working, living, and socializing from home. Going into 2021, the future remains unclear as to when in-person gatherings will return. For now, the event industry is focused on enhancing the virtual and hybrid event space by making the most of the advances in technology that have not only made the shift to virtual events feasible, but also successful.
What did we do and how did we communicate urgent alerts before this feature?
Flock Eventing Platform recently kicked off its Webinar Series for this year with an expert panel discussion around the 12 Top Event Trends of 2021.
Flock’s first webinar proved to be a powerhouse of information for anyone who wants to learn more about holding events in 2021 and beyond.
Hosted by MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) ambassador, Thami Nkadimeng, it was the first of many sessions aimed at businesses and event organisers who are shifting their attention to how to engage with audiences and customers virtually during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Event planners are starting to use event data and analytics more and more to host events that are people-centered and audience-relevant.
Using data that you’ve gathered from guests via event apps, email correspondence and from online behaviour is an incredible way to learn more about the types of people that would be interested in your events and your brand. Such data also provides you with the insights to continue giving current event customers what they want and find useful.

The hard lockdown, which started in March this year, forced many businesses and event managers to transform their business model and embrace technology by offering planned events online, in a bid to stay afloat.
Eight months later, as the eventing industry is starting to reopen following an easing of lockdown restrictions, there is a glimpse of a new normal on the horizon.
A few short decades ago, the concept of engagement was rarely associated with corporate events. Fast-forward to 2020, and attendee engagement has become a term bandied about with much fervour – for good reason.
Green screens are an affordable and accessible option that event organisers can use to catapult their event to the next level. With the latest technological advancements, green screens are no longer only reserved for big-budget films or high-end enterprises. Corporates and small-scale companies are able to use green screens to enhance their virtual spaces by utilising them for advertising purposes, multimedia presentations as well as video sharing.
Flock Eventing Platform has used green screens for many clients and as a result has seen major improvements in both event engagement as well as keeping attendees tuned in. Introducing an interactive and dynamic element as part of attendees’ experience helps keep them focused and engaged throughout the online gathering.
