Gravit8 has been delivering event technology solutions since 2007, driving exhibition engagement, interaction and data capture for brands.

Build your own virtual environment

To help brands create immersive digital experiences for their delegates, either to enhance an existing face-to-face event, or to launch a new virtual-first concept, we’ve created the best virtual exhibition software on the market, making it fully configurable so that it is quick and easy for you to set-up and launch your own event. You’ll be able to:

  • Configure it all yourself, including branding, logos, sponsors, trade stands, networking, live streaming, theatres, auditoriums and so much more. Choose from any of our pre-set virtual exhibition environments, then quickly and easily make it your own.
  • Represent your brand and everything it stands for – in look, feel and function. Whatever your events objectives, your virtual space will be designed to achieve them.
  • Offer your delegates multiple opportunities to interact in real time with your team. From instant messaging to video meetings, streamed webcasts and more, the possibilities for networking and connection are endless.
  • Capture the interest and engagement of your prospects on a whole new level; no matter the kind of virtual event you’re looking to host, or its scale.

The best virtual exhibition platform

The virtual exhibition software is user-friendly and engaging, and a big leap forward from video conferencing. In its first 24 months, brands used the platform to:

  • Deliver 214 exclusively virtual events including virtual congresses, virtual exhibitions, virtual trade shows, virtual networking and virtual conferences. 65 were fully rendered in 3D.
  • Welcome more than 2.6 million attendees across the virtual events.
  • Host unlimited delegates online at the same time for a single virtual exhibition.
  • Boost overall attendee numbers, often up 500% compared with in-person events.
  • Access new markets, for example one pharmaceutical brand accessed delegates in financially restricted zones, including a 60% uplift in members from South America.

Reach a bigger audience with a hybrid or virtual environment

One of the best things about using virtual event tech is that it reduces many of the traditional restrictions of in-person events including location and capacity for example. This allows brands to:

Reach a bigger audience

  • Without travel and time costs there’s the potential to go global.
  • On average, brands can increase delegate attendance by 500% compared with in-person-only events, and there’s no evidence to suggest that less people will turn up in person either.
  • Delegates also cite better inclusivity, enabling them to attend despite financial, health, or time restrictions.
  • The system is elastic so there’s not really a limit to the number of delegates you can host, or how big your event can be!

Attract new delegates

  • Based on our client’s experience, the virtual portion of hybrid events can encourage delegates that were “on the fence”, to attend virtually for their first year, and commit to in-person spend the following year.
  • A 2020 research study revealed that 45% of healthcare professionals who had registered for an online medical conference would not have attended in person, regardless of the pandemic.

Drive revenue through online virtual event platforms

Digital event spaces provide you with new revenue opportunities for your brand, and you can even create your own opportunities too. Examples of revenue opportunities include:

Timed sponsorship / sponsor zones

  • Pretty much anything in your virtual environment can be monetised, including timing when a sponsor’s brand is displayed, providing targeted sponsor ads to a specific demographic of delegates, or even letting the sponsor handpick delegates for virtual networking

Charging delegates for long term access

  • By creating evergreen content that stays available after the event has finished.

Adding digital merchandise

  • Such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), logos or badges.

Boost your brand by driving engagement

Created by a team that specialises in delegate engagement at exhibitions, the platform is intrinsically designed to amplify your brand profile. As well as lead generation and quantifiable metrics throughout, dedicated features help you reach a bigger audience. For example, the social wall helps to create your community and foster interaction, while the polling and audience feedback tool helps you encourage discussion and gather opinion.

What’s more the VEP can always be enhanced with bespoke features and solutions, so whether you want to launch exclusive NFT merchandise, create a game, or have a unique idea you want to see realised, we can help.

Showcase your brand to its fullest potential in a virtual world of infinite possibility

Bigger, better, brighter, louder. Whatever your ambition, the world of digital is one of infinite possibility. The Gravit8 VEP has been built to support brands with expression of their identity, standing out in the right way. This means:

  • immersive and attractive graphics to help you differentiate your brand digitally
  • unlimited assets to increase product knowledge, including videos, images, presentations, brochures, and even AR and 3D experiences
  • dedicated experience centres for your specific needs, such as breakout rooms, auditoriums and demo areas, supported by 1:1 video and text chat, letting your team interact with your delegates directly as they ask questions.

Ultimately, your space can be unique to you, expressing your brand just the way you need it to.

Create evergreen content for delegates at your virtual trade show

Producing content within virtual event technology spaces means your brand is already primed to take advantage of digital recordings and digital tools.

Expanding the impact of your event, your lectures, seminars, and other virtual networking experiences can all be turned into an evergreen digital format for continued delegate access. Some offer 365-day access for all delegates as an added-value, while others monetise the access with subscriber passes.

Reduce your cost per delegate with an online virtual exhibition platform

On average, delivering a virtual exhibition with Gravit8 costs around 10% of the cost of an in-person trade show. For those delivering exclusively virtual events, this is a big cost-saving compared with a physical space, while for those delivering a hybrid format, they cite a significant reduction in cost per delegate, thanks to the opportunity to add more delegates at a lower cost per head. Interestingly, delegates don’t expect to pay less to attend a virtual congress, as long as the quality and virtual environment remains high.

Enhance your speaker opportunities with virtual event tech

Going virtual means that your virtual congress or virtual exhibition can remove geographic boundaries, as well as time restrictions. This enables event organisers to access speakers, chairs, and panel guests in real time that could otherwise not afford the travel time.

Deliver a simple but effective delegate experience

While your delegates will no-doubt be wowed by the professional, immersive 3D world you create, the Gravit8 VEP has been designed to deliver a seamless, simple to use interface for every single delegate. Starting with accessibility through standard internet and PC equipment, every stage of your delegates’ journey is as straightforward as possible.

The platform has been built to foster live human interaction between your team and your delegates, so from registration to events, stands, to wayfinding, delegates can access a real person. What’s more, focus on the delegate experience includes a sophisticated scheduling system, allowing them to plan their day across multiple content streams, maximising their benefits from the event.

Boost your sustainability and ESG commitments

One of the biggest challenges for exhibitions and conferences is delegate travel. Falling into “Scope 3” carbon costs for your event, going virtual allows you to expand your audience, without significantly increasing your associated carbon footprint. Switching from in-person to virtual can even reduce your footprint too! This helps to support you with your sustainability and ESG pledges.

Trial a new event concept using 3D virtual exhibition software

Virtual environments allow you to test and trial aspects of an event (or even a brand-new event) without committing to more space or resources for something that might not work. Virtual environments have no health and safety considerations, no space or time restrictions and no physical infrastructure or logistics, making them easier to plan, with bigger potential scope. Brands can use the Gravit8 virtual exhibition platform to trial something new.
