2023 was a strong year for the virtual event industry as its global market reached an astounding $171.4 billion, with current estimates putting that figure at $889 billion by 2032. This means 2024 is geared to be another critical year for virtual events while benefiting from in-person and hybrid events, as well. One aspect of virtual events that companies have begun embracing is virtual event spaces, which are unique and custom environments designed to provide an extra layer of immersion and engagement for organizers and attendees. Examples of virtual event spaces include virtual offices, breakout rooms, digital meeting rooms, virtual conference rooms, and 3D environments. The advent of virtual spaces will only increase diversity, inclusivity, and connectivity for individuals worldwide.

 G2 Reviews for Chati 

"Very robust, easy to use, beautiful platform for education and marketing promotions." - Paul R.  

The virtual layouts for each of the meeting rooms was really impressive. Attendees felt that they were actually participating in an in-person meeting. Moving from "room to room" was very simple and easy to coordinate and integrate. The customer support was a huge plus! Each of our event managers attended every client conference call and worked with the speakers.” - Mark D. 

Elevates the customer experience above just webinars, offering users the option to network and discuss relative topics related to the event in a variety of "rooms". -Amy C. 

"The user experience is immersive and easy to navigate. It promotes interactivity for the attendees. I like all of the different spaces within the event. I like how you could leave the auditorium and view the people who were available in the networking lounge.” - Verified User in Hospital & Health Care 

Chati allowed our virtual attendees to feel like they were actually at the conference with the customizable platform. We were able to have the platform look like the venue we at in-person with some additional added touches of the city within the event.” - KariAnn D.
