How 2020 Changed Events for the Better

We’re not going to pretend that 2020 was a good year. We’re not going to pretend that events weren’t cancelled - some for good - or that jobs weren’t lost.

What we do want to do is take the time to appreciate and understand the little wins. Throughout it all, this vital industry has worked hard to connect people and spark ideas, and we've seen some great things come out of this effort that shouldn't be overlooked! The events industry doesn't need to back to the way it was before - it needs to keep moving forward, and including the positive changes in future strategies.

Reducing Environmental Impact

Eco-consciousness has been at the forefront of industry conversation for years now, and great strides have been made to reduce waste. But the fact remains that an in-person event requires banners to be printed, stands to be constructed, and of course - people to travel to attend. 

Virtual events significantly reduce the carbon footprint of events, whilst also providing longevity in the content created which can be adapted for future use. Even as rules begin to relax and venues start to open up again, questions will continue to be raised as to whether this event could be virtual, or include virtual aspects in a hybrid-format.

Global Reach

Virtual events have removed one huge limit for event organisers: location. You can bring in speakers from all over the world with ease online, without wasting time or spending on travel. When you choose to pre-record with Camflare, speakers can record at a time that suits their own time zone, and then the event can be released at a time that suits audiences globally too.

June of last year truly brought the issue of diversity to the forefront of everyone’s minds, and it’s been great seeing issues discussed and tackled in talks across all types of events. By removing the barriers of having global speakers, it is easier to gather an increasingly diverse range of voices. Virtual events that are offered free or at a reduced cost to audiences also removes obstacles to information and increases accessibility - which is a great thing for the events industry!


Additionally, online you are not constrained by venue size, so you can take a ‘more the merrier’ approach, meaning you can increase your audience reach more than ever before! Even when venues are back in use, their capacity is likely to be significantly reduced, so it's worth considering that an online event could be more worth investing in.

Streamlining costs

Unlimited capacities are just one way events can evolve through being online. Full catering is being swapped with a small gift basket, or removed completely, and so costs are saved there too. Where there are aspects that organisers are forced to cut, it's being realised that actually, some of these features aren't as necessary for running an event as previously thought.

Tech Innovation!

Finally, after a few stumbles along the way, the technologies available to event organisers has exploded, and innovation is everywhere. Where before virtual events were thought of as a lesser option to the ones held in-person, now there is a greater opportunity to make the online experience work for the better. 


Chat boxes and polls are great for encouraging audience engagement, and great for you to get feedback about what’s working! Countdowns build up suspense, and the ability to pause allows content to be viewed, backtracked and reviewed at the viewer’s convenience!


In fact - it was the increased demand for online webinars, awards and conferences that led us to create Camflare, and from there we’ve found endless possibilities for its use from podcasting to influencer campaigns to education and more!
