Post-Event Analysis: Key Metrics to Measure Virtual Event Success

In the rapidly evolving world of virtual events, understanding the success of your event is pivotal. Post-event analysis helps organisers refine their strategies, ensuring future events resonate even more powerfully with audiences. But what are the key metrics to gauge this success? Let's dive into the indispensable measures every virtual event organiser should be tracking.

1. Attendee Participation:

Metric: Number of Registrations vs. Actual Attendees

Measuring the difference between those who registered and those who actually attended provides insights into the effectiveness of your promotional efforts and the appeal of your content.

High engagement is a hallmark of a successful virtual event. Monitoring how actively attendees participate in sessions, respond to polls, or engage in Q&As can offer a wealth of information. streamGo offers a unique score showing the level of engagement for your online event at both the event level and attendee level.
