【疫市營商】數碼港初創疫市撐企業保就業 與港人齊心共渡時艱

新冠肺炎疫情打擊全球經濟,本港今年上半年有近九成活動及展覽被迫取消或延期,大型展覽及活動復辦無期,博覽業陷入「超級寒冬」。所謂「唇亡齒寒」,活動籌辦公司和參展商叫苦連天,連帶為實體活動提供管理平台的企業,如數碼港社群成員EventXtra的生意額亦大跌五成。此外,疫情下很多公司無奈裁員,政府早前公布香港失業率攀升至6.2%,創15年來高位。

到底EventXtra如何在疫市中抓緊機遇,逆轉業務危機?

EventXtra開發虛擬活動博覽平台  疫市下轉危為機

受疫情影響,EventXtra今年首季生意額比去年同期急跌50%,但團隊未有消極應對,反而在危機中找到新機會,開發一套一站式虛擬活動軟件,協助客戶把實體活動轉為以網上形式舉行,成功令公司絕處逢生!受惠於虛擬活動軟件,EventXtra成功為客戶開拓出路,第二季業務更即時激增300%。EventXtra聯合創辦人、福布斯亞洲年輕領袖陸啟哲:「虛擬活動不但令我們成本下降,瀏覽量也大增,有助企業拓展更廣闊的人脈,成本效益亦更勝實體活動。」

年初市況一遍死寂,EventXtra深知不能坐以待斃,立即著手開發虛擬活動籌辦方案。正當活動搞手因應社交距離指引而一籌莫展時,EventXtra團隊迅即推出網上展覽平台,成功幫助原有客戶解決問題外,更吸納不少新客源。自3月底推出Beta版方案,EventXtra在隨後三星期內收到的客戶查詢數目,已比上月同期上升三倍,現時公司已有80%的業務轉為虛擬展覽。在今年6月至7月期間,EventXtra的虛擬活動籌辦方案已吸引 300 萬人次應用,使公司在逆市下仍獲千萬港元收入;在新方案推出後兩個月,EventXtra更成功與日本最大展覽主辦方簽署價值7位數字的合約。

「虛實相融」成未來趨勢

EventXtra的虛擬活動籌辦方案,讓活動搞手能夠以視像會議或現場直播形式舉行活動,更加入廣告版位、研討會房間及參展商攤位等,配合平台的多種功能,加強與在線觀眾的互動,令參加者有如親歷現場。陸啟哲表示,不論展覽商或國際活動商,以往也曾考慮進行虛擬展覽,惟最終因不同原因打消念頭。適逢疫情出現,正好驅使企業加速數碼轉型。客戶體驗過虛擬博覽的優勢後,未來更可嘗試以混合形式舉行活動。「網上虛擬活動與實體活動能夠互相支援,讓更多人打破地域限制,參與貿易展覽、影展、網上會議或是商業交流等不同活動。」

新型冠狀病毒疫情為全球帶來嚴峻挑戰,面對截然不同的世界及生活,數碼科技應用成為適應新格局及抓緊新機遇的關鍵。
