Virtual Events Market Growth & Trends

The global virtual events market size is estimated to reach USD 504.76 billion by 2028, recording an estimated CAGR of 23.7% from 2021 to 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The significant rise in business events and increasing adoption of virtual tools, infrastructure, and services by organizations for conducting or attending business meetings across the world is expected to keep the growth of the market high. Furthermore, rapid urbanization and continuous developments of technologies for the convenience of users are also anticipated to aid the growth of the market.

Virtual event platforms have been widely adopted by small and medium businesses for event outsourcing and analytics, content and social media development, access management, and event marketing. In December 2020, 6Connex launched a virtual winter event, Winter Celebration in Virtual Downtown Square that involved holiday-themed virtual venues, music, and movies for friends and families to connect and celebrate. The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with business communication platforms has enabled professionals to save time, increase their productivity, and efficiently improve the workflow of the organization. The adoption of virtual events is surging across various industrial verticals, such as manufacturing, retail, media and entertainment, education and academics, and healthcare, among other prominent sectors.

The market has witnessed substantial growth due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, as many organizations had to run their businesses through online platforms. Corporate meetings in various sectors are being conducted virtually to maintain the workflow. The healthcare industry largely deployed digital platforms to monitor patients remotely. In March 2020, Cisco Systems Inc. announced that its offerings, such as the Cisco Webex platform, enterprise solution for online meetings, video conferencing, and webinars, were being deployed by 17,000 healthcare organizations across 118 countries for offering telehealth services.
