ON24 Honors Best Virtual Events
UBM’s TechWeb takes award for best innovation.
Webcasting and virtual events vendor ON24 has announced the winners of its first-ever ON24 Virtual Event Excellence Awards. The program was co-sponsored by the Online Marketing Institute, which provided judging on the nominees.
According to ON24, the awards aim to recognize organizations that “push the boundaries of virtual communication and define best practices for the industry.” Eligible events were those produced in 2009 and hosted on ON24’s Virtual Show platform. A total of 22 nominations were submitted among the 300 events produced on the platform last year.
Among the winners was UBM’s TechWeb, which snagged the award for best Virtual Event Innovation for the InformationWeek 500 virtual event. Other winners included IBM (for the best International Virtual Event), Oracle (best Partner/Customer Event), Lithium Technologies (best Attendee Engagement) and Sodexo (best Virtual Training).
Nominee evaluations were based on ROI, “immersiveness," branding impact, achievement of business objectives and overall quality, ON24 said.
