Bring Sales to the Virtual World
Sales conferences are the perfect environment for companies to expand their customer base and inform them about new products or services that they offer.
But, because of the cancellations of in-person sales conferences and events due to COVID-19, many companies are looking for ways to deliver information and demonstrations to their customers virtually.
Luckily, companies like Charger Water Solutions can utilize virtual events to reach out and inform their customers in an impactful way. And, help clients:
- Identify new products that fit their needs
- Network with other attendees that share similar interests
- Learn and share their own best practices

Social27 knows that networking is key to a successful virtual event. So, it’s no surprise that the most popular feature during Charger Dealer Virtual Event was Roundtables. Roundtables allow customers to meet face-to-face with other attendees, speakers, sponsors, and members of the Charger Water team to discuss topics brought up in sessions, participate in product demos, and more.
With chat and real-time interaction with speakers and sponsors via Moderated Q&A, the Sessions chat feature was also among the most used features. Charger Water noted that Sessions chat naturally flowed into Roundtables for many of their attendees.
“The ability to host a live Q&A after each session allowed us to interact with attendees in real time. It created conversations that were carried over to the Roundtables.” – The Charger Water Team
These features helped Charger’s customers get to know their brand on a more personal level, and promoted more informed, educated, and connected customers.
