GDS Group has announced the roll-out of its enhanced Virtual Showcase events experience by making it available for general release.
The end-to-end managed service includes broadcast-quality stage and screen production with platform integration, pre-event 3D virtual lobbies, live polling and chat, pre-recorded video options and post-show follow-up.
Fully hosted from GDS’ physical stage and studio in either Bristol or New York, Virtual Showcase already boasts customers including Microsoft, Salesforce, VMware and DuPont.
Spencer Green, founder and chairman of GDS Group said: “With the roll-out of our Virtual Showcase digital events platform, senior leaders can leverage our 25 years of business events experience to organise their own broadcast-quality events to communicate effectively with their employees, customers or other business stakeholders.”
Speaking about his company’s experience of the Virtual Showcase offering, Du Pont managing director William Hendrickson said: “Truly an accelerator. This streamlined our sales cycle by 50%. If you look at the one-to-one meetings, executives came with real challenges and we had 100% conversion to next steps and follow-up.”
The GDS Virtual Showcase was first launched at the end of 2020. The platform has since been enhanced and iterated based on customer feedback in preparation for this next phase.
