Cameron Dick, we have since hosted our first events to great acclaim from our clients, with everyone having a good time in a well-managed safe environment.
We are now busy working on our upcoming events and continuing to adapt to the challenges and opportunities that COVID-19 brings for us as well as for you, our clients.
ONE in three of us now attend more than 10 virtual events a month, according to a new study that indicates the sharp growth in online events sparked by the need to work and meet remotely could become permanent.

EventsAIR launched its OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution in May 2020, which gave event organizers a way to curate content in an interactive environment. Since then, OnAIR has enabled a multitude of events by a range of clients to be presented virtually, fulfilling both the event objective and increasing the reach to more potential participants. Now in July, EventsAIR has released Version 2 of OnAIR, introducing more features to improve attendee engagement and avoid online fatigue.
You can rest assured that every aspect of planning and executing an event during these unprecedented times has been carefully tailored to meet and exceed approved social distancing and strict infectious control guidelines at SMC.
Experience first hand how our virtual & hybrid event solutions can be customised depending on budget, what level of support you require, what you are streaming and to whom you are communicating.
