In an era of constant digital connection, can virtual access provide opportunities where a physical presence isn’t attainable?

The march towards an increasingly digital world creates the capacity to exist in multiple locations simultaneously through virtual platform technology. From learning services to trade shows, industries are finding innovative ways to incorporate these new capabilities. One trend making waves in this space is the emergence of virtual access to global mobile locations and events, bringing an exciting shift in how people engage with remote experiences. The global virtual event market size was valued at $114.12 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.4% from 2022 to 2030.

How will this trend change daily lives, business operations, and government functioning? Is the future moving to where people can virtually be in multiple places at once?  And today, virtual access to mobile locations and virtual events around the world, without physically being there, are we there yet?
