There is nothing more important than an intuitive platform when you host a virtual event.

The Virtual Hive platform is designed with experience in mind, and it is incredibly easy to navigate. With a simple, customized user interface, users of all levels of technical expertise can join sessions, workshops, and discussions with ease. We also offer platform guides to attendees, and hosts, sponsors, and exhibitors can get an extra boost from our tech support team upon request.

Additionally, organizers can set up reception areas and help desks in their virtual venues to welcome and assist guests in large-scale events. Just as people can go up to a front desk and ask for help in a physical event, virtual attendees can do the same.

Our intuitive interface helps attendees stay fully focused and present, even hours into the event. They can also keep track of their schedule and stay updated with our virtual TV studio and news ticket network.

Exploring a conference or a tradeshow on Virtual Hive is just as intuitive as attending a physical event. The platform is incredibly easy to navigate, and the user interface helps you stay fully focused and present, even hours into the

event.

 

DATA & ANALYTICS

Never wonder again how your event performed.

With physical events, hosts, sponsors, and exhibitors are not given the opportunity to track interactions around the venue, retain chat logs, record booth visits, or receive feedback on how attendees have engaged with each other.

At Virtual Hive, we know how important data is and strive to keep analytics direct and effective. Our Dashboard supplies real-time data to organizers about visitors, user journeys, interactions, and much more, down to the granular detail. Whether you are after an overview of your event’s performance or specific data on your booth or workshop, you can find them all on a simple and clear interface. Insights are also accessible via an API.

Post-event, we provide you with a comprehensive data package that can be measured against KPIs to gauge event performance for organizers, sponsors, and exhibitors. Marketing teams and decision makers can easily calculate ROI and better understand their customers’ behavior, which can spark inspiration and guidance in the planning of future events.

DESIGN

Designed to encourage participation, our Virtual Hive platform looks great and allows attendees to stay connected and focused during virtual events. This prompts users to want to spend more time in venues, and it encourages engagement and their readiness to learn.

We offer two standard designs with different capacities.

Our conference hive is a large virtual venue for fairs and conferences, hosting up to thousands of attendees. Equipped with Nordic-style lighting and contemporary architectural design, this venue comes with a reception area, breakout rooms, exhibit spaces and booths, and more.

Our corporate hive is designed for the corporate segment, hosting thirty people and up. Flooded with natural light and lush greenery, this venue includes a main stage, breakout rooms, and hubs in which to chat and relax. It is perfect for corporate retreats, summits, and meetings.

In both venues, hosts and sponsors can easily integrate brand banners and promotional materials. Further venue customization is also possible. Contact us to learn more about our venues and see some of the many customized solutions we have created in the past.

TECHNOLOGY

Manage your virtual events with Virtual Hive’s technology and unlock the full potential of your events.

Our platform is built as a true multi-tenancy SAAS product with usability, performance, and security as its cornerstones. Multi-tenancy is a software architecture that enables us to serve multiple customers (tenants) with a single instance of a software application. Though customers share the software application and databases, our stringent security measures ensure each one’s confidentiality.

Our platform consists of two react-based user-facing applications – one allowing customers having bought a license to configure specific events and one for visitors participating in events. Configuration includes authority to customize and set up events.

Hosted in the cloud, our platform also allows organizers to host in multiple different environments. You can use a well-known cloud provider such as AWS or Azure, or for organizers with specific security requirements, you can opt for a more local and dedicated environment.

Power meetings your own way, with flexibility and efficiency.

API

When it comes to virtual event hosting, flexibility is key. We understand how hard you work to put the event together, and we want to work alongside you, not against you.

Virtual Hive is built on an open platform with various APIs and integration with third-party tools. As event organizers, you can continue using your systems, tools, and processes on our platform and effortlessly sync important data and pages.

Prior to and during the event, we offer SSO support and specific customization through CSS. Post-event, visitor statistics, responses, and feedback can all be extracted for storage and analysis.

Different possibilities are constantly being extended. To learn more, please get in touch with our team over here.

Customization

We understand the importance of customization on a virtual platform so that your attendees can feel comfortable, inspired, and connected. Our minimalist yet realistic design can mirror physical venues and provide the perfect base for the integration of promotional materials and branding, down to the color of the carpet.

Entire content libraries can be uploaded onto the platform with the click of a mouse and accessed anytime. Users can customize their avatars that reflect their racial, religious, and gender identities too, to create opportunities for representation and to celebrate diversity.

Customization extends to changing the view outside the windows of our virtual venues. Host your annual retreat in a forest or organize your conference amid snow-capped mountains. Corporate events can also take place in your organization’s headquarter city.

The Virtual Hive platform has great customization capabilities, so that your attendees can enjoy fully immersive experiences and stay engaged no matter where they are physically located.

Scalability

Virtual events come in different forms. Whether you are hosting a small-scale corporate event or a large trade show with thousands of attendees, we aim to accommodate your every need with our scalable virtual platform.

With Virtual Hive, you can choose from an array of session types and lengths, rooms, and number of event days. You can scale your event up and down depending on your direction and goals, and you can customize venues to your satisfaction without a substantial increase in budget.

You can even request to make changes during the event as you assess attendee engagement from the real-time statistics we provide. Change up venue lighting and banners, rearrange presentation schedules, and set up new networking rooms with just one click.

The best part about hosting virtual events is that you can open the door to entirely new, global audiences and significantly widen your reach. Instead of hosting a conference for 500 people, you can easily invite 5,000 when you go virtual, without additional cost as catering, accommodation, and traveling are not required.

Engagement

At Virtual Hive, our virtual platforms are designed to facilitate and encourage engagement. From customized venues to intuitive interfaces, our experience-focused virtual events aim to fully immerse participants so they can easily interact with each other.

Our virtual venues can accommodate different types of engagements, such as group discussions, video conferencing, one-on-one live chats, and more. During speaker sessions and workshops, we offer real-time polls, Q&As, and reactions so that both speaker and audience feel a sense of togetherness.

During and after your event, we are able to log quantitative and qualitative engagement feedback so you can gain an in-depth understanding of the event’s performance. This includes, but is not limited to, the number of registrations, viewers, responses, and user journeys, as well as attendee satisfaction.

Networking

Create meaningful connections and bring your attendees closer together with our virtual platform. Hosting an event with us, you can cast a wide net when it comes to attendees.

Level the playing field and promote equity by inviting the best and brightest from all over the world and accommodating them all in our large virtual venue. Within your event, you can facilitate unlimited group or one-on-one communication opportunities in lobbies, breakout rooms, exhibitions booths, and more.

We also offer different types of interaction methods. Participants can take part in real-time video conferencing, online chats, polls, Q&As, and discussions, whether they are scheduled or spontaneous.

Additionally, attendees can set nicknames and create custom avatars to cultivate a sense of individuality and personality, so that no one is just a name on the screen. On our platform, attendees connect and stay connected, way after the event is over.

Data Protection & Security

At Virtual Hive, we value your privacy and security, and we continuously do everything in our power to keep your data safely guarded in compliance with EU regulations. We also invest heavily in security measures to ensure we meet or exceed industry standards, applicable laws and regulations, and most importantly, your expectations.

This is why Virtual Hive is a GDPR-compliant event platform. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets the bar globally for privacy rights, information security, and compliance. We believe privacy is a fundamental right, and that GDPR is an important step forward in protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals.

When you don’t have to worry about the security of your business, sponsors, and attendees’ data, you can focus on enjoying the event you are hosting.

Environmental benefits

Make a difference to our planet by going virtual. A study conducted by the University of Michigan has stated that virtual events substantially decrease carbon emissions when travel, accommodation, venue maintenance, catering, and materials usage are removed from the equation.

The environmental benefits of virtual events can be seen clearly when looking at specific scenarios. The same study has calculated that taking a large international conference of 5,000 people online will result in overall carbon emission savings of 98%, which is equal to a saving of 158 American families’ annual emissions.

This makes a strong case for going virtual. To read more about the environmental benefits of virtual events, you can access our white paper.
