Oct. 19, 2022, New York (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Verizon Business today introduced BlueJeans Expo, an immersive virtual environment for enterprise event collaboration, education, engagement, and inspiration that is scheduled for general availability later this year. By combining live and on-demand video, event management and content hosting into one powerful yet easy to manage platform, BlueJeans Expo helps organizations deliver fully customizable virtual experiences pre-, during and post-events.
Aparna Khurjekar, CRO, Business Markets & SaaS, Verizon Business stated, “Success in today’s workplace requires organizations to activate their audiences beyond event boundaries to enrich the customer journey and drive brand loyalty. With BlueJeans Expo, we’re providing customers with a fully integrated and personalized community hub for interactivity, networking and engagement.”
Transform Your One-Time Event into a Community Hub
According to the IDC Market Analysis Perspective: Worldwide Collaboration Applications, 2022, “Companies with branded communities perform 13% better in virtual events1.” By bringing multi-session, multi-day virtual events to life in a community environment with BlueJeans Expo, event hosts can deliver on the promise of interactivity and engagement that extends long after the event is over.
The fully customizable nature of BlueJeans Expo gives event hosts the ability to transform their virtual event site into a home base for attendees and sponsors to stay up to date and remain connected with the community. The event home page and content hubs can be easily transformed to support an ongoing engagement cadence that is powered by Expo’s configurable messaging capabilities.
Simplify Event Production with a Fully Integrated Solution
BlueJeans Expo features a comprehensive event lifecycle framework to power pre-, during, and post-event workflows. With easy-to-use attendee registration and management, plug and play session templates, drag and drop content hubs, and in-depth event reporting, BlueJeans Expo provides an all-inclusive solution for designing and delivering a world-class virtual event.
To help drive meaningful connections during the event itself, BlueJeans Expo offers the ability to deliver high-quality networking opportunities with an intuitive directory that supports simple profile creation, quick filtering, and role-based chat to encourage participation, yet limit unwanted outreach. It also enables “in-booth” notifications to encourage event participants to engage with sponsors who are staffing virtual exhibits.
Furthermore, whether broadcasting a keynote presentation to 150,000 attendees, facilitating a birds-of-a-feather session for 15 participants, or posting a panel discussion for on-demand viewing, BlueJeans Expo makes it easy to turn video into the star of your event. With single-click scheduling for BlueJeans Meetings and Events, it’s easy to organize the type of session required, whenever it needs to happen.
