The adoption of video communications in enterprise organizations is growing at a rapid pace. According to the recent Brightcove Global Video Index, in the first quarter of 2020, video views among enterprise companies increased by 91% year over year, with preliminary year-over-year data from April and May showing viewing increases of nearly 80% and 54%, respectively. Along with this adoption, many in-person events and meetings are moving to online video. With no timetable for the return of large-scale, in-person conferences and events, marketing and event professionals are looking for an in-person alternative, and they are turning to Brightcove for guidance.

  • Expertise and support: Engage with Brightcove’s customer experience team and support organization to meet business objectives.

“Like most B2B companies, we had to quickly pivot from an in-person event to a virtual customer conference when COVID-19 hit. Our strategy was to embrace the remote reality but also to create an experience that felt like a performance and developed a sense of community,“ said Kathie Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer, Talkdesk. “To do this, we selected Brightcove as the platform and leveraged its integration partner Pigeonhole for the live polling and social interaction. One analyst who compared B2B customer conferences stated Opentalk 2020 virtual ‘struck the best balance of event duration, content, and engagement.’ The development process with Brightcove was seamless and the response to our program has been extremely positive.”

“The pandemic is video’s evolutionary moment, and as a result, video is now at the forefront of how we communicate with others, how we conduct business, and is enabling us to stay connected even when physically apart,” said Sara Larsen, Chief Marketing Officer, Brightcove. “Events are a place for information sharing, learning, business building, and networking. Now, more than ever, we need events to flourish and connect us in a virtual video experience. Brightcove Virtual Events Experiences allows organizations to deliver exceptional virtual events quickly and securely, without sacrificing the attendee experience. With this solution, we’re not only helping our customers adapt to the changing landscape but also allowing them to stay connected with their audiences with an engaging, innovative video-driven digital experience.”
