Research Methodology

In identifying the additional venues offering virtual events, your research team started by exploring local and national newspapers on virtual events, including those with information on the rise of virtual events, following the COVID-19 pandemic. We examined events databases like Eventbrite to identify examples of past and upcoming virtual events venues. The team focused more on examples published in media reports, such as Vox, Newsday, Wairnetworks, Patch, and Timeout. These resources featured examples of venues that have now gone virtual during COVID-19 quarantine. We also expounded on each example identified through continued research to uncover more details about each venue. Regarding information about the best practices for hosting a virtual concert online, we focused on expert reports by leading virtual events platforms like Zoom and social media marketing platforms like Hootsuite, event ticketing system like 1krowd, and business media outlets like Forbes.
