Zoom has announced the launch of an all-in-one events solution for virtual experiences called Zoom Events that will be coming in the summer this year.

Zoom recently conducted a global study, How Virtual Do We Want Our Future to Be?, where 84% of respondents in Singapore agreed that everything will continue to have a virtual element post-pandemic. 55% of Singapore respondents are planning to enjoy events both in-person and virtually.

Talking about Zoom Events in a blog post, the company said that it would be based on their events platform OnZoom announced during their Zoomtopia event last year.

With the launch of Zoom Events, OnZoom, currently still in Beta, will be rebranded and folded into Zoom Events.

Like OnZoom, Zoom Events will allow paid Zoom business users to use the platform to build an event hub to manage and share events. They can create customised ticketing and registration, control access to billing, host free, paid, one-off or a series of events, bring attendees together with integrated networking, and track event statistics like registration, attendance, and revenue.

According to Zoom, their pricing plans for Zoom Events will be available soon. We will update this article when we receive more information.
