I volunteer for a non-profit that is planning to host a virtual trade show next year as well as a virtual job fair. The organization selected a company called Expos2 to host the service. Well, when we decided to pull the trigger and move forward, Expos2 informed us that they are closing down and are not accepting new clients.
Can you imagine deciding on a hotel to host a physical conference and have the hotel call you before your event and tell you that they are closing its doors?
This prompted me to do a little more research on the space (I normally cover webinar technologies). After investigating it looks like there are two dominant platforms that have been around for a long time with a large client base; ON24 and Communique Conferencing. Aside from these two there are several very small (less than 10 employees) start-ups similar to Expos2.
I wonder if the other small players will make it. This reminds me of the early days when Webinars just started out.
