Our initial research about the virtual events industry revealed the market size of the global industry and that of the North American region. Unfortunately, we were unable to find any open source containing the United States virtual event platform's market size. Most reliable sources (industry analysis experts) identified with such information such as Grand View Research, Transparency Market Research, Mena FN, Future Market Insight, and Alchemy Market Research are all behind a paywall. As a result, we have to attempt triangulating (calculating) the market size for the United States industry, which can not be done during the first hour of research due to time constraints. We recommend selecting one or more of the below Proposed Next Steps (PNS) to allow us to continue with the Research.
