Sansar is no stranger to large-scale live events, and we’re here to help you and your audiences stay safe, productive, and connected during the Coronavirus outbreak. Here’s everything you need to know about hosting a virtual event in Sansar - whether it’s a conference for work, an educational workshop, a live performance, or even a music festival!
In Sansar, Anything is Possible
In 2019 alone, Sansar hosted more than 200 events, spanning concerts, lecture series, special meet-and-greets, and even a presidential town hall. One of our biggest events, a 4-hour music festival hosted by the EDM label Monstercat, drew more than a thousand people from around the world - with thousands more watching live on Twitch, Mixer and other streaming channels - and showcased just how dynamic, interactive and spectacular virtual events in Sansar can be.
And that’s only scratching the surface of what we offer. Sophisticated, multi-tiered ticketing that enables artists and promoters to earn money from their shows. Stunning visual fidelity and extensive customization so that avatars and worlds can mirror real-life people and places. Interactivity that marries the electricity of live events with the larger-than-life spectacle of gaming.
Feel More Connected From Anywhere
Through our advanced spatial audio, attendees can feel like they’re in the same room as friends whole continents away: socializing in real-time without actually having to leave their homes. Through instancing, the scale of an event can be effectively infinite - for every 100 attendees that join, a clone of the event will spin up for the next 100, and so on. And thanks to our functionalities for tipping, ticketing, and commerce, brands have the opportunity to earn revenue from events they host.
And we don’t just host events for others. Every week, we hold product meetings with users from around the world, where they can ask questions and get answers in real-time. We also hold a lot of our own company meetings inside Sansar - definitely more exciting than video-chatting in our pajamas!
