Rising Interest Among Youth in Entrepreneur and Business Seminars to Boost Global Events Industry Market:

According to EventMB's 2021 report, 71% of event planners stated that they would continue to use a digital strategy even after live events return. A Bizzabo study states that 97% of respondents anticipate seeing more hybrid events in the future. Hybrid events combine the reach and flexibility of a virtual event with the intimacy and engagement of an in-person event. Canapii is a hybrid events platform deployed in mid-2020, making it easier to create and arrange hybrid events. Event Tech Live is an example of an event mostly focused on virtual access but includes two live stages. Others, such as the World Travel & Tourism Council's Global Summit in April 2021, are mostly in-person, with information available online. For the next year or two, the hybrid event landscape will most certainly contain various in-person and virtual options. 

Entrepreneurship education for secondary and post-secondary students has a beneficial impact on entrepreneurial skills and goals, but it is unclear if this translates into long-term entrepreneurial engagement or revenue. A few comprehensive reviews in this domain in developing countries imply that secondary/tertiary entrepreneurship education impacts entrepreneurial ambitions, mentality, and abilities. For example, university-based entrepreneurship programs in Tunisia raised entrepreneurial intention, mentality, skills, and self-employment rates in the near term; however, these effects dissipated four years later due to financial restrictions.

North America has the highest rate of advanced technology uptake due to favorable government policies fostering innovation and enhancing infrastructural abilities. As a result, every factor affecting the region's industrial performance obstructs its economic development. The US became one of the world's worst-affected countries by the pandemic, causing governments to impose several limitations on industrial, commercial, and public activities in the country to contain the disease's spread.

According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the US experienced a contraction in GDP due to the pandemic. There has been a decline in overall business activities in various industries operating in the region, affecting the revenue of key market players. The business shutdowns, cancellation and postponement of events, various sporting events, exhibitions, prominent festivals, concerts, and weddings across the US, Canada, and Mexico, negatively impacted the Events Industry Market growth in 2020. However, in the coming years, the virtual event software segment is expected to foresee significant growth opportunities due to the rising demand for digital content and live streaming.
