eBay Classifieds company Vivanuncios recently held their first virtual real estate expo. The event saw 85 developers market over 300 projects to Mexican home buyers via a specialist platform developed in house by the company. Users also had access to virtual conference rooms where representatives from mortgage companies and developers presented information about home purchasing. The virtual expo attracted more than 350,000 interested buyers according to the company Linkedin.
With thoughts around much of the world now turning to when and how business can resume, there will be an extra challenge for those seeking to organise events. It will be interesting to see if any other portals take up the challenge of organising large scale events online. At least now, Vivanuncios has proved it can be done and that online events to market property can be a success.
Online Marketplaces is organising the Global Online Marketplaces Summit in Conjunction with AIM Group and Rising Media. This year we’re taking the conference online. Check out all the information here.
