The way we meet has changed since 2019. Virtual events were solely in the domain of the computer-literate and tech-savvy pre-pandemic but today people across the world are connecting virtually with the click of a mouse. But which is truly better, in-person or virtual events? We believe there is nothing like the excitement and opportunity that comes from an in-person event, especially in one of the premier conference and events venues in Dublin. DCU specialise in event planning with a focus on sustainability and can accommodate meetings from 5 to 1200 attendees. Here are some pros & cons of virtual vs in-person events in Dublin.
There’s no argument that virtual events are better for networking. Walking around a venue, chatting with people you wouldn’t usually get the opportunity to and making real-life connections is priceless and something that cannot be matched by virtual events. There’s nothing like being surrounded by people who share your passions and interests as well as connecting with new people. Business deals are more likely to close face to face rather than via the internet too as potential clients can gauge your trustworthiness and passion for themselves. Networking is a key element to the experience at any event. Attendees can connect with business prospects, potential employers and fellow enthusiasts forging lasting relationships.
