On 4 June, gluoNNet, Veertly, and RemotelyGreen held an open discussion and networking session on the future of online events together. The idea was to exchange experiences and ideas regarding the fast-evolving online events sector among the virtual events community. The event produced lively discussions and connected people from different domains. It was well received by its participants, giving them new ideas, insights, and contacts. The attendees talked about a wide variety of topics, such as the consolidation of virtual and on-site events, the vast potential of online hackathons as a political instrument, or the public image of online events.
Given the event was a success, the collaboration of gluoNNet, Veertly, and RemotelyGreen decided to hold more such events in the future and created the series “Open Discussions & Networking”. The event series will focus on topics related to the virtual events landscape. Everyone is invited to join these informal get-togethers to meet experts and other curious minds, discussing and learning more about these topics. The sessions are free of charge and take place every first Friday of the month at 4 pm CE(S)T on Veertly. The next session of our Open Discussion & Networking series about the topic of virtual networking will (exceptionally) take place on Friday, 9 July at 4 pm CEST.
“The event went well, and we had a lot of fun discussing virtual events. We aim to establish an interesting series of events for the virtual events community. We welcome everyone to join our discussions and networking sessions. The more, the merrier,” says Karolos Potamianos, co-founder of gluoNNet.
Additionally, for the event on 4 June, gluoNNet and RemotelyGreen tested a new way of data visualisation in relation to online events. This type of animated interactive 3D visualisation allows event organisers to track each encounter in the virtual meeting place, giving them insights into the dynamics of the event. The networking session resulted in 54 new connections among 17 participants. The networking sessions had a rating of 4.65/5 on average. Amongst the most popular topics discussed were: hybrid events, virtual vs on-site, co-existence of virtual and on-site events, acceptance of virtual events, virtual event innovations.
