It was thrilling to witness firsthand how the partnership between Elton John’s foundation and Webex allowed for greater inclusivity for people who normally never would have been able participate in such a private event. A big thanks to our Engineering team whose hard work made it possible for the event to be hosted on our Webex platform. You make me so proud!
Those who attended this one-of-a-kind event were entertained by several celebrities including Elton John performing at the piano. What a treat! Elton also shared progress on his non-profits efforts to end the AIDS epidemic. I’m pleased to share the event raised $3 million dollars for the cause!
Events like this truly showcase how partnerships with Webex can help businesses scale their operations, break down barriers, and create more inclusive experiences.
As we look ahead, the future will increasingly be about hybrid offerings that provide people with a greater sense of togetherness and inclusivity. And that’s where Webex will be the pioneer in providing these new, more meaningful experiences.
We continue to up our game with events. For instance, we recently announced our intent to acquire Socio to deliver more inclusive, engaging and intelligent meeting and event experiences. Also, with our previous acquisition of Slido, Webex can now provide a more comprehensive, cost-effective and easy-to-use event management solution We have much to be excited about!
To hear first-hand from our partner about their experience with Webex, listen to Elton John AIDS Foundation’s CEO Anne Aslett share her experience of their first virtual Pre-Oscar Party event.
