Connection with friends and family- bonding
The motivation to engage in virtual events often differ across generational lines. Boomers often cite that virtual events help them unwind and relax and give them something to look forward to whilst staying connected to their friends and family. Younger audiences look to virtual events as a way of maintaining social networks as well as bonding with strangers who share similar interests. For both groups, virtual events can help ease feelings of isolation and loneliness. Digital spaces provide the means for people across generational lines to come together with their respective communities.
Of course, virtual experiences also provide users with a global access and flexibility they would otherwise not have. These style events provide users with a unique opportunity to participate irrespective of geographic or other constraints. Participants can watch and engage with virtual events from any device and from anywhere in the world. Everyone from boomers to small children stand to benefit from this style of interaction. Just as lovers of classical music were able to watch Andrea Bocelli’s live streamed concert from the Duomo Milano last year, children from all across the world could take in the sights from Sydney’s famous Taronga Zoo in a virtual tour.
