With hybrid and remote events as the new norm, Welcome has experienced extreme volumes of website traffic in a short amount of time. Recognizing that the demand for virtual event platforms is critical for any marketing team’s strategy, Welcome needs a way to identify, prioritize, and engage with high-value visitors at the magic moment when their interest is piqued.
