The benefits of using Enter Agora are clear: save money, time and effort whilst positively contributing to the environment and achieving a long-term foundation for business growth. Enter Agora aligns with your ESG goals and sustainable strategic business decisions.
Lower cost, higher impact
“Events – virtual or real – are expensive. The spend for a one‑time experience is high, and there is pressure that comes with getting as much out of it as possible.”
On average costing only 10% of the amount of a traditional event, Enter Agora vastly reduces costs and boasts a significantly higher ROI thanks to fewer restrictions and a high level of customisation. Your investment for physical events happens every time. Enter Agora can be there forever, allowing you to reuse, repurpose and reinvigorate the world you have already created for future experiences.
ESG goals: No carbon, no travel, no waste, no production
“As a business, we are concerned about our carbon footprint and are constantly looking for ways to be more sustainable.”
With increasing demand on businesses to make sustainable choices, Enter Agora facilitates greater possibilities with fewer restrictions on time and space and minimal impact on the environment.
The majority of sustainability professionals (89%) think their company’s overseas travel in the next two to three years will be significantly reduced compared to pre COVID‑19 levels. A cautious estimate based on the Climate Group’s analysis indicates a potential average decline in international business trips of up to 40%. Using Enter Agora complements many of the new corporate social responsibility initiatives marketers are promoting through numerous internal and external campaigns.

Offer an alternative solution to live events
“Many guests are often unable or unwilling to attend events – some even dread engaging in corporate experiences altogether.”
30% of people are more likely to speak to others virtually than in live settings. For many, attending events is not always an enjoyable experience. Whether they enjoy a sense of anonymity or a more controlled environment, Enter Agora offers an alternative for those who consider themselves introverted to control their stage and perform at their best.

Own your own venue
“Virtual means virtual – there is no in‑between when it comes to virtual vs. real experiences.”
Designed to complement and enhance rather than simply replace live experiences in the future, Enter Agora acts as an amplification of your space before, during and after any experience. Offering the possibility to host your attendees for pre‑registration, expand your capacity virtually, share post‑event content with delegates who were unable to attend, implement targeted ads, tailor experiences to your visitors and extract performance analytics, Enter Agora was created to better how we experience our world(s). Best of all, once your world is built it is re‑useable, further reducing costs in venue hire – because now you have your own virtual venue.
Design and display any type of content
“There are so many moving parts that go into designing content for experiences – and restrictions come with all of them.”
From films that engage your people, live talks that give them a pulse of your progress, to almost any type of static and dynamic content, advertising and sponsorship, our content options are as adaptable as your imagination and your needs.
Worlds designed for any experience
“Virtual platforms and experiences are often unengaging, boring and simply glorified video calls. They limit the kinds of experiences you can have online.”
Far beyond 2D virtual platforms, Enter Agora allows you to create a bespoke 3D world explicitly developed to fit your brand and business needs from the ground up. From a conference to an experiential showcase to a global expo complete with stands, create an immersive environment that’s infinitely more appealing and interactive than any existing formats.
A new way of connecting
“Interactions in virtual settings aren’t as strong – how can they can replicate the real thing.”
Sometimes the beauty of live experiences are the bump-ins – those off-beat, sporadic moments that other online experiences are unable to replicate. Reimagining how we come together in virtual environments, Enter Agora offers built-in interactive features that replicate physical interactions as closely as possible, while enhancing and giving you overall control. Your guests can interact using their own voices or the chat features, share their details and connect with people they otherwise wouldn’t bump into, regardless of location and timezone, on any device and in the comfort of their own environment.
