Waveplay Interactive receives ‘Best Virtual Event Platform’ at London’s Event Technology Awards 2021

Waveplay Interactive, Inc. received the award for the Best Virtual Event Platform (over 15,000 attendees) category at London’s Event Technology Awards 2021. 

As the Philippines’ leader in interactive event experiences, Waveplay Interactive Inc. was the only Filipino tech company lauded as ‘Best Virtual Event Platform’ at the UK Event Technology Awards 2021. It bested other distinguished finalists in the world with over 15,000 Attendees Category.

In May 2020, Waveplay Virtual Events was launched, pivoting normal meetings to virtual/hybrid events. Waveplay Interactive was behind this. It became the first fully-customizable event platform in the Philippines.

When the award-winning platform paved the way for the new normal in the event industry, planners and organizers found a way to conduct meetings despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic.

As a result, Waveplay Interactive has formed exceptional interactive and engaging virtual events with limitless possibilities. It served more than 1.5 million attendees across the world and hosted over 700 event days. This platform allowed agencies and brands to bring their imagination to life by ensuring nothing but the best event experiences online.

“After the assimilation of physical events to virtual, the next challenge is how to continue surprising guests. We’ve been working hard to escalate our hyper-personalized virtual experiences by introducing more humanized networking options, gamification you can play with co-attendees, and activities that involve audiences from the lobby to the main program. And in anticipation of hybrid events, we are ready to integrate our virtual tech on ground,” says Sharon Yu Ong, co-founder and CEO of Waveplay Interactive, Inc.
