The company recently carried out a study which found an appetite among professionals who attend corporate events wishing to experience more. Some 44 per cent of corporate event attendees said that they would be more likely to attend events with enhanced production values supported by new tech such as the metaverse, or augmented and virtual reality.
The research also found that professionals are becoming more selective about the events that they attend in-person. With the increased focus on work/life balance, 37 per cent of those who attend corporate events said they will only go in-person if they know they are going to have a worthwhile experience. Avcom’s marketing pitch is ‘experience more’.
