BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA (May 31, 2021) – EventsAir is excited to announce that it has hosted one million virtual attendees from around the globe using its award-winning virtual and hybrid event solution OnAIR. The achievement of this milestone in just 12 months after the platform first launched in May 2020 is testament to the company’s ability to anticipate and rapidly respond to the ever-changing events industry needs.
12 months after its initial launch, the exceptionally powerful OnAIR platform has hosted over one million virtual attendees at over 20,000 events, as well as handled more than 4.4 million registrations, and delivered over 12,000 livestreaming hours via its fully integrated ultra-low latency live streaming solution AIRCast.
“We are incredibly proud of what the EventsAir team has accomplished,” said CEO Trevor Gardiner. “To reach one million virtual attendees in only 12 months is a fantastic achievement.”
“We are extremely grateful to all the customers who helped us to reach this incredible milestone, and we’re pleased to be helping our customers connect and engage in meaningful ways through these difficult times.”
Changing the Face of Events on a Global Scale
Anticipating the need for an alternative to in-person events when COVID-19 hit in March 2020, the EventsAir team sprang into action to develop the revolutionary OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution.
The highly skilled EventsAir team was able to design, build and launch OnAIR in just 90 days and, in doing so, they completely revolutionized the global events arena. The new platform rapidly became a lifeline for event planners around the world, helping them to transition their in-person events into the virtual space. Using OnAIR they were able to stay connected with their clients and sponsors despite the global restrictions on travel and in-person gatherings that threatened to cripple the events industry during COVID-19.
After OnAIR was launched in May 2020, more than 100,000 attendees had already passed through its virtual gates within three months. Since then, it has helped thousands of event planners to create, run and manage a variety of virtual and hybrid events from a single, secure, scalable, and stable platform. OnAIR has been used to run a range of events from very large and complex events involving the simultaneous hosting of more than 500 speakers and over 10,000 attendees to 2-hour VIP event series without a hitch.
“Over the last 12 months, it has been crucial to have a virtual event solution. With EventsAir and OnAIR, event planners have the power to create and run amazing virtual events – both hybrid and in-person events—all from a single platform. This makes it easier for event organizers to broaden their audience reach, increase ROI and deliver a truly integrated experience for audiences worldwide,” said Global Director Sales and Marketing Joe Ciliberto.
OnAIR is built on the EventsAir 6th Gen event management platform and the two systems work seamlessly together to provide event planners with a complete end-to-end solution from which to run virtual, hybrid and in-person events, along with the power to quickly and easily transition between formats as the need arises.
The recently released version of OnAIR has raised the bar once more with the introduction of a world-first 3D/2D visual mode. This optional mode deepens attendee immersion in the event by introducing a fully customizable and brandable 3D graphical virtual event environment.
“With the initial version of OnAIR, our focus was on providing a highly secure and stable virtual environment to support a range of features and functionality that would mimic the features of in-person events,” said Trevor Gardiner.
“With the latest version, we’ve added a new dimension to the virtual and hybrid event experience, dramatically increasing attendee engagement and immersion in the virtual space with our revolutionary 3D graphical mode.”
“The 3D mode option facilitates the transition to hybrid events, which is already starting to happen in some parts of the world. It also adds value for sponsors and exhibitors who are able to showcase their brands, products, and services in an immersive design.”
The Pursuit of Excellence Drives Transformation
The award-winning OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution is a sterling example of the company’s remarkable foresight and ability to provide solutions that not only cater to client’s needs but also go beyond what is expected to delight the customer.

“We want to thank the wonderful teams working behind the scenes and our loyal customers who have supported them to keep creating more successful events. We are so excited to be on this journey with our customers and look forward to continuing to deliver great event technology that adds value and elevates the industry,” said Joe Ciliberto.
