Hubilo is the world’s smartest Virtual event platform that brings Experience and intelligence together. With Hubilo you can host an event online, get sponsors to brand themselves at your event, exhibitors to showcase their offerings and invite a global audience that would be interested in your agenda and would interact with exhibitors and create business opportunities for all stakeholders at almost 1/10th of the cost of a physical event.

Below is our recent interview with Vaibhav Jain, the Founder and CEO at Hubilo:

Q: For those who have never heard of it, how would you describe Hubilo?

A: Hubilo is a platform that marketers, event organisers, CMO’s will add to their marketing stack to increase engagement with their audience. As virtual events become the new norm of hosting events along with physical events, Hubilo will add tremendous value in making that possible. What was missing with physical events were the insights that could help measure ROI. What we are building at Hubilo will not only make insights available around event interactions but will also help organisers improvise experience for their attendee’s event on the event. It is like having a campaign on social media that can be measured in terms of engagement and improvised at every step forward.
