Net Zero Festival - benefits of a virtual event




As a result of the global pandemic BusinessGreen decided to host the inaugural Net Zero Festival as a virtual event, this was not our original plan, but we believe this has opened up greater opportunities for the event. In so many ways a virtual event is more beneficial than a physical event. Here's just a few reasons why:


More content, more speakers, more discussion

Now with 3 days of content we can take a deeper dive with more sessions, more speakers, and more discussion, resulting in greater action for the net zero transition.

Net Zero Insights Team

The Net Zero Insight team is made up of key BusinessGreen collaborators who will be broadcasting live from BT Studios in London, providing commentary and analysis on the sessions across the three days. Tune into them live from the studio in between sessions. Click here to see who's on the NZ Insight Team.

Greater access to speakers

In a physical event, there is often limited time for delegates to ask questions. At the Net Zero Festival speakers will be able to respond to questions via the chat function after their presentation in their own time, ensuring delegates get all the answers they want. 

Networking opportunities

At the Net Zero Festival there will be dedicated networking areas where you can connect and chat live with other attendees. There will be different discussion 'rooms' running so you can join different discussions that are of interest to you. There are no time constraints like there would be at a physical event during networking breaks - the rooms will be open all day for discussion and networking. 

Time efficiency

No need to take full days out of the office or waste time travelling to the event. Plan your own personal agenda over the three days - pick and choose the sessions you want to tune in to getting the most out of the agenda and maximising your time 

On-demand content

Anyone who buys a ticket to the event will also gain access to all the event sessions and content for 30 days after the event! Invaluable content at your fingertips for a whole month.

Greener environment

Obviously a very important benefit for Net Zero Festival. With a virtual event there is no carbon footprint from attendees travelling to the venue or from the event itself.

Wider reach 

It is our mission to reach as many businesses as possible. With no geographical barriers businesses and individuals will be able to attend the Net Zero Festival from across the UK and around the globe, with no travel costs or time restrictions.
