“Like the future of work, we believe that the future of events will include a combination of virtual and in-person formats,” the video communications firm said.
The pandemic has changed the way people learn, work, collaborate, or attend events, as a large part of these experiences have moved to the virtual space.
In July, the company introduced ‘Zoom Events’, a solution for customers to build, host, and manage virtual or hybrid events. It also announced Zoom Event Services to help organisations plan, support, and produce virtual, live, and hybrid events on its platform.
