Not all event platforms are created equal: 4 virtual event pain points Virtuworx fixes

November 3, 2021

Virtuworx began as an internal tool for The Virtulab as well as our sister companies, allowing us to work and train remotely with teams spanning the globe. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we saw an opportunity for agility and changed direction, turning Virtuworx into a flagship product for virtual events and training, as well as remote work and education. 

From the get-go, our team understood that every project within Virtuworx would be completely different, as would every client. We started out knowing that we wanted to create a product that was anything a one-size-fits-all experience. Agility is one of our core values, after all. 

There are many seemingly same-such products on the market currently, but the agility and customisability of Virtuworx is what sets us apart, as well as the way we have solved many virtual event pain points many customers have experienced with competitor products. Here’s how: 


Many virtual events platforms are just plain difficult to use. They’re complicated and it’s time consuming learning how to use them, whether you’re an organiser or an attendee. This kind of fuss can easily take all the fun out of an event. This is because other providers are simply providing a platform, and not an experience. 

This is where Virtuworx differs. We aim to recreate those engaging experiences quintessential to an event. With Virtuworx, it is possible in a virtual space. Our platform is powerful, feature-rich and dynamic. The gamified environment with incentivised networking makes the experience fun and valuable for delegates. The real-world-emulated platform facilitates authentic interactions, just like an in-person event. Event organisers and sponsors can also make the space their own with a massive host of customised features.

What truly sets Virtuworx apart is its ability to cater to different internet speeds and PCs. Immerse is a downloadable program where you can walk around the customised venue as an avatar, interacting with the avatars of speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates. Connect is a browser-based version of Virtuworx for anyone whose internet connection or PC doesn’t have the horsepower to run Immerse. These two platforms can also run together seamlessly for the same event, so everyone involved can attend and enjoy the experience, no matter which platform they are using. 


Most competitors haven’t thought about the vast opportunities virtual and hybrid events can afford sponsors for brand experiences. We know important sponsorships are to you, and we want to help you build up those relationships. That’s why Virtuworx has thought about sponsorship possibilities and provides a platform that can offer sponsor-focused value. 

Sponsors don’t just want to be a logo placement at an event. They have moved beyond this at in-person events, and shouldn’t be expected to revert back just because an event is taking place in a virtual environment. Virtuworx gives sponsors placements that are customisable to meet their needs and experiential to meet the needs of their customers. This allows sponsors and event attendees alike to enjoy a more engaged and unique experience. 

Plus, the unrivalled insights and analytics Virtuworx can provide gives sponsors even more value with the added ability to leverage and build powerful relationships. 


A lot of event platforms on the market at the moment don’t allow for the same level of customisation that Virtuworx does. From creating an avatar that represents who you are in the real world to enjoying custom venues and booths tailored to your needs, Virtuworx has you covered. 

Both virtual and hybrid events should be about the experience, and our customisable, gamified platform allows both you and your audience to become fully immersed in the event, just like in real life. Plus, your sponsors will love it too!


Many competitors may be much bigger, but as platforms like these grow in popularity, they tend to lose their human touch when it comes to help and support. A team of people on standby to help often gives way to FAQs and a HELP button that leads you to a page with an overwhelming amount of reading to do, where you have to scroll away to find the solution to your unique problem or need. 

Virtuworx, on the other hand, promises a team of actual people who are always there to provide world-class help and support whenever you need it. From helping PCOs get set up in the platform to attendees signing in and navigating Virtuworx, our support specialists are there to help every step of the way. This is important to us because we want every event held in Virtuworx to be accessible to all.

Client Testimonials

The team at Virtulabs get it. Rather than build another “pseudo 3D” virtual event platform, they’ve created a genuinely engaging platform that event organisers like me are proud to share with our clients. The level of customisation and robustness of Virtuworx has allowed me to be as creative as I want in my event proposals, and has helped me grow my business. I cannot wait to see what the team comes up with next.
