Virtual events, parties and concerts are the new norm, and rightly so. With their powerful ability to not only reach but impact audiences across the globe, and save money along the way, the advantages of organising an online occasion are significant. Adapting to the changing industry, our singers, comedians, and general entertainers can tailor their act to virtual audiences, to ensure the success of your globally accessible event.

Already eager to jump on the virtual bandwagon? See our step by step guide to hosting your own online party or concert. 

Accessible & Inclusive

Enabling the audience to watch from the comfort of their own home, the accessibility of virtual events and parties is second-to-none. They easily reach audiences of all sizes and demographics, meaning that events are no longer geographically limited. Plus, being only a click away, this ease of access encourages more people to take part, including guests with disabilities. No longer having to navigate wheelchair ramps, online events make for comfortable viewing - this level of inclusivity is key for generating ticket sales and business growth.

Cost-Effective

Virtual events have the power to save you time and money, making the format even more appealing to organisers. Saving your audience travel expenses, and you the cost of booking a suitable venue, hosting an event virtually eliminates multiple financial pressures. Through this cost-effective option, you are successfully driving the profitability of your event and business.

Marketing-Friendly Material

Easy to record, a virtual event is a great source of marketing material. Marketing plays a crucial role in the success of any business, allowing companies to reach a wider audience while also affirming loyalty in their existing customers. Recording a virtual concert or set requires limited effort, and can be used to promote further events, drive sales, and successfully leverage the credibility of your business. Marketing also plays a big part in guaranteeing high attendance at your future events.

Highly Engaging

With the capacity to host an event for hundreds, if not thousands, of people across the globe, events hosted online can engage countless viewers at one time, whilst still maintaining an intimate feel. However big the audience, virtual events have the unique ability to give everyone a front-row seat, ultimately increasing audience engagement. Your guests will feel as though they are only inches away from the performer, allowing them to be completely involved. This makes for a truly unique and memorable experience.

World of Entertainment

Choosing to organise a virtual event provides you with access to a whole world of entertainment. For example, you could book a Spanish magician without having to pay their travel fees or accommodation, or a famous American comedian free from international working visas. The vast amount of choice this provides presents you with the opportunity to make your event unique. By choosing to book an act from across the globe, possibly unseen by your audience prior, your event instantly becomes a memorable experience that will leave a lasting impression.
