Good virtual event software?

Any recommendations for good virtual event software platforms/tools? Given everything going on in the world right now, we plan on hosting our user conference virtually and wanted to see what other marketers are using. Any feedback or ideas would be helpful! 😊


  • Hi Reina!

    In terms of event hosting platforms, Meghan is spot on! If you're looking for help driving registrations to your virtual event, we've been using our own chatbots. (I know, I know. I work at Drift so I may seem a little biased.) But, this is uncharted territory for all of us marketers and none of us had much experience with virtual events. So far, so good!


  • We have selected ON24 for our virtual event happening later in May. We selected ON24 because we could use it for virtual events and use it as a platform for webinars all year along.

    If you are looking for a more interactive event (1:1 chat, virtual booths, gamification) ON24 has virtual experience product, but it is relatively heavy lift and expensive. Other option that we came across for interactive events is . Marketo used inxpo last year and I heard that Sirius Decisions is using Inxpo for their upcoming virtual SD summit.

  • For many now they are using zoom like a webinar, there are many other platforms available, a number of friends have started looking at - recently got a huge round of investment and has thought through 95% of the issues of conference and virtual events, even the networking side.

    Good luck


  • We are really liking the On24 team, they have been great to work with and turning around an event quickly. Meghan mentioned Bizzabo earlier and I had a great demo with them. They have alot of options and the cost isn't as pricey as others.
