San Antonio-based 6Connex, a global leader of virtual environment solutions, which works primarily on virtual trade shows, has been busy lately. The company has seen its business of virtual events grow by 1,000%, and has been fielding requests from national sports leagues, large school districts and global corporations.

Different from webinar tools such as Zoom and WebEX, 6Connex can host large-scale virtual events for groups of 300 or 30,000, offering each participant access to virtual lobbies, exhibitor halls, networking lounges and a variety of customized spaces, all designed to deliver an immersive and interactive experience. 6Connex can replicate any high-profile, large-scale event, making the whole experience virtual through a secure, cloud-based platform. Best of all? They can do it in less than eight weeks.

In some areas, meetings and events returned a while ago, but for others, it’s hard to imagine what planning a meeting would be like. In an effort to show the latter how to hold safe business gatherings when restrictions loosen, the Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) launched their Meet Safe platform as a resource for other planners to reference when planning future in-person meetings.
