WellTek, Inc. (OTCBB: WTKN), a global health, fitness and wellness company, announced today that it plans to expand into the virtual event market, specializing in the healthcare and wellness niche, by launching a new wholly-owned company, WellTek Events, Inc. This next-generation virtual event platform will serve as the foundation in allowing WellTek and other brands to actively reach, engage and influence health and wellness conscious consumers with new and existing brand assets, technologies, products and services.
According to the Virtual Conference and Trade Show Market Study 2010-2015, the worldwide virtual conference and trade show market is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 56% between the period of 2010 and 2015 and to generate $18.6 billion in revenues over the period 2010 - 2015. While the virtual event market is still in its infancy, WellTek intends to launch into the virtual event business.
WellTek Events is looking to become the industry leader in producing and delivering powerful virtual events for the healthcare and wellness market -- linking exhibitors, attendees, and thought leaders together in a fully immersive and engaging virtual environment.
Without the costs, hassles and time involved in a physical event, participants navigate through the 3D game-like world booth by booth via an avatar. Advances in technology allow exhibitors to actively reach, engage and influence a highly targeted global audience, create and customize virtual booths, communicate with prospects via video conferencing and live chat, convert leads to customers in real-time with the Ecommerce platform, generate reports and analytics to tract ROI and many more features that ultimately turn prospects into buyers and customers into raving fans.
The integration of virtual events, social networking and social gaming permits attendees to overcome the challenges facing the traditional trade show market, as well as take advantage of the benefits of social media: staying in constant contact, sharing opinions, recommendations and links, getting answers right away and feeling connected to the information they care most about -- all while being entertained
