At Monday night’s meeting held via Zoom it was very appropriate that our guest speaker Stephen Handisides guided us through the potential of virtual platforms, virtually. 
We are all becoming very used to the “talking head” type Zoom experience. Stephen was able to show that by using a platform his company, V-Unite has designed and sells around the world, the virtual experience can be very much more sophisticated and engaging. 
V-Unite allows clients to create virtual events such as trade shows and professional summits which can include, keynote addresses, breakout rooms, product stands, competitions, and gamification. This can be done in a virtual environment that the client chooses from over 100 templates or a more customized one. Fancy running your trade show in a winery, a cruise liner or in space then that can be done. 
As the platform has developed and expanded the potential uses also grow and clients are using the platform for marketing, on-boarding, training, sales, and education. 
In a post Covid world Stephen is confident that virtual eco system is here to stay with hybrid events, a mix of virtual and in-person,  becoming more popular. 
Ensuring that setting up an event is easy for customers, making sure that V-Unite integrates seamlessly with their existing platforms and is optimised for mobile phones as well, are part of the reason why V-Unite has experienced rapid business growth with a product that meets users needs now and which will also be important in a new post Covid normal.
