Market Dynamics

Cloud-based software is often preferred owing to its higher reliability and adaptability than on-premise software, and cloud-based event management software is not an exception to this trend. Cloud-based event management software or event management software offered through the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery mode is known for its low maintenance costs and the ability to provide consistent service delivery. Cloud-based platforms offer virtual storage, backup-restore facilities, and virtual server facilities, which can potentially help end-user organizations in reducing the costs of hosting a dedicated IT infrastructure. These benefits are expected to drive the adoption of cloud-based event management software, thereby opening new opportunities for market players to introduce new, innovative event management software deployable on the cloud.

Cloud service providers are responding to evolving situation by integrating new features into their respective cloud platforms to attract new customers and augment their revenues. For instance, in August 2022, cloud computing company VMware, Inc. launched VMware Aria, a multi-cloud management portfolio, to reduce multi-cloud complexity across any application and cloud environment. Several market players are focusing on migrating their event management software to a cloud platform to cater to growing demand for cloud-based software and augment their revenues. Market players are especially focusing on strengthening their cloud-based event management software portfolio.

Event planners and organizers are using gamification as a tool to engage attendees. Gamification of events allows organizers to enhance experience for attendees. Gamification works on tailoring benefits to attendees' sentiments to boost their confidence, create a relaxed atmosphere, generate a feeling of common purpose, and ensure easy & effective communication. Event organizers typically use innovative gamification methods, such as Question and Answer (Q&A) engagement, social media engagement, teamwork games, social programs, and networking games.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are revolutionizing many elements of event management. AI-powered chatbots and digital assistants can answer guest inquiries, offer event details, and provide customized suggestions. Automation technologies can help companies reduce time by automating email marketing, social media time management, and statistical entry tasks. Interactive event engagements are gradually being created using AR and VR technologies. AR can provide fun and interactive elements by adding digital content to physical event venue. Attendees can utilize VR to discover virtual settings while participating in virtual presentations, outings, or games.

These technologies provide events with a new dimension by allowing visitors to examine items, venues, or ideas in a more collaborative and realistic method. The initial costs of using event management software usually include licensing expenses, customization, and coaching. These costs can be expensive for small firms with limited resources. Furthermore, ongoing upkeep and subscription charges may put an additional burden on budget, particularly for ongoing activities or firms with an increased activity frequency. To facilitate online registration and ticket sales, event management software frequently interacts with payment gateways.

Visitors can navigate to event website or registration platform and choose their desired tickets or registration options. The increased emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly methods will impact market growth. Green event management software will include features that reduce paper waste via digital applications, purchasing tickets, and interaction. To assess and track environmental effects, sustainability measurement & reporting capabilities will be embedded in these software tools, which will propel market growth in coming years.
