Using innovation and technology to make business simpler has always been at the core of webexpenses – and that includes how we hold our events.
This year, we applied these founding principles to our annual webexpenses’ event to find a smarter way to connect with our global clients, partners and users.
In the past, webexpenses connect has been a one-day conference held in London, UK. However, this created a number of barriers and limitations on who could benefit from the various updates, workshops and resources.
The solution is this year’s virtual connect event.
By registering you gain access to a month long series of online talks, product updates, workshops and competitions – all able to be viewed whenever and wherever you want.
Virtual connect will provide the full conference experience with a keynote talk by webexpenses’ CEO Adam Reynolds and exciting information on the latest product updates and some major plans for 2019.
So why go virtual?
There were five key reasons we chose to switch to an online approach:
As a growing company with clients across the globe, a virtual solution is the best way to ensure that all of clients and users can connect with us during the event. There will also be specific content for each region.
Webexpenses’ success is based on constantly looking for innovative ways to enhance our product. So that’s what we wanted to do with this event, to make sure we provide the best way for people to connect – where and when they want.
Time is a precious commodity in the business environment and we’re very conscious that many can’t devote a full-day to travel to a venue for an event. With this approach, the information is available for 30 days – from anywhere with an online connection.
Having a one-day event really restricts the way we can share information. There’s only so much you can fit into a day’s schedule. This approach gives us much more flexibility, along with a more convenient way to access the information.
We’re very conscious about our environmental responsibilities and always look for sensible ways to reduce our carbon footprint. This was one area where we could make a clear improvement by removing the need for multiple journeys into central London.
