Gartner has released it's Market Guide for Event Technology Platforms offering up guidance on market direction, analysis and a short list of the vendors represented in the space. Hubb's all-in-one virtual, hybrid and in-person platform was featured among others as a leading solution for event planners looking maximize event impact and ROI.
Several key insights were identified within the report including a huge demand for virtual technologies during the pandemic that led to rapid changes and confusion within the industry. As the dust settles, Gartner predicts that there will be no going back to the event landscape of 2019 but instead a new approach is needed.
The report found that event planners and marketing departments are focusing more on engagement across in-person, virtual and hybrid events, "Marketing must now deliver engaging attendee experiences in virtual, in-person and hybrid events using comprehensive event technology. Product marketers should match their business requirements to the technology vendors in this research and understand the market to make every event a success."
Gartner also reported an increased interest in an all-in-one solution that can handle various event formats including in-person, virtual and hybrid as opposed to procuring one platform for virtual events, one for in-person event support, and so on. Regardless of the format, Gartner identified four primary event technology capabilities that planners need to consider when evaluating a platform. They include:Attendee Management
