Airmeet, a virtual events platform for event organizers to host interactive and immersive virtual events, has introduced a suite of virtual networking features, including 1:1 Speed Networking, Scheduled Meetings, and Rich Profiles.
The features, designed to increase attendee engagement and unlock organizations’ return on investment for events, are the first of their kind on the market.
“Our research shows that two out of three virtual event attendees aren’t able to find a match during Speed Networking rounds in other platforms — resulting in lost time and a disjointed attendee experience,” said Lalit Mangal, CEO and Co-Founder of Airmeet.
“With Airmeet’s networking features, hosts can solve this challenge in real-time while attendees reap the benefits of meaningful, one-on-one knowledge sharing. We’re excited to see how these first-to-market features transform the effectiveness of customers’ events,” added Lalit.
Airmeet, a virtual and hybrid events platform
Airmeet is a near-to-real, exceptionally engaging virtual and hybrid events platform for organizations and communities looking to build networks and strengthen relationships year long by unlocking the value of people’s presence and making connections real and contextual, from anywhere.
The startup was founded in 2019 by IIT alumni and ex-CommonFloor executives Lalit Mangal, Manoj Kumar Singh and Vinay Kumar Jasti.
With a core focus on creating the most interactive and immersive virtual events platform for knowledge professionals, the company’s scalable platform supports various event formats.
The startup currently has a more than 300 person remote-first team based out of six countries. Airmeet has raised more than $15M in venture capital from Sequoia Capital India, Accel India, Airmeet, and others are growing aggressively globally.
One-on-one discussions in virtual networking events hold enormous value for hosts and attendees alike. Too many organizations, however, have long been burdened by outdated and manual processes making virtual event experiences slow and uninteresting for attendees.
Having recognized this challenge across industries, Airmeet has developed a suite of networking features to empower organizers by allowing them to set the rules around who gets to meet whom.
This powerful combination of networking agility and quality allows organizations to unlock even more user-generated content and discussions, create a more engaging attendee experience, nurture new and existing stakeholder relationships, and increase their overall return on investment in events.
Features like the 1:1 Speed Networking allows organizers to set the framework around who gets to connect with whom, thus making the virtual Speed Networking events more interactive, resulting in better 1-on-1 matching, and increased attendee engagement.
This first-to-market feature, which creates matches based on attendee profiles, increases the percentage of successful and meaningful attendee matches at a higher speed.
Scheduled Meetings allow hosts to send private meeting requests to an individual or a group. The platform also encourages a dynamic flow of conversation between the audience and speakers.
Personal interactions between members of the audience or with the speakers can be initiated during the event. The feature also includes a do-not-disturb mode to prevent meetings from becoming overwhelming.
Rich Profiles allows participants to add more personality to their event profiles by adding their introduction, interests, and social profiles links. These rich and comprehensive profiles break the barriers of first introductions and enhance networking conversations among participants.
User Generated Conversations are a networking feature that democratizes networking and dialogue. With this, the organizers can empower attendees to create tables of their choosing, invite others to the tables, and drive conversations.
