In 2020 – events have become increasingly digital-first. Aided by advancements in conferencing technologies (and in response to the COVID-19 outbreak which has forced many to work remotely), more and more events and meetings are taking place online.
Times are changing – but are you changing with them?
Since spring 2020 we’ve seen a massive surge in online events, conferences and meetings; event organisers are utilising cloud-based conferencing tools to deliver international, online events, while business leaders are using them to keep connected with their workforce and clients.

For small and medium-sized businesses, many of the current cloud-based conferencing/meeting tools will suffice; they’re robust, easy to use and quick to deploy.
