Are virtual events and webinars the same?

No. Virtual events and webinars are similar but not the same. Webinars are typical video conferences where an organizer broadcasts a presentation to a group of invited attendees. Virtual events include all of the features of webinars plus additional functionalities that make them perfect for large-scale online events.

Those features include the following:

  •  Multi-session events
  •  Virtual event lobby
  •  Attendee ticketing
  •  In-depth event analytics
