We Work Well launches web-based meeting platform for digital buyers event
By Megan Whitby 13 May 2020
The inaugural We Work Well event was held in 2019
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, a plethora of industry events and conferences have been cancelled and rescheduled to avoid risk the spread of the virus.

In response, buyer event company, We Work Well, is pivoting its annual event into a digital offering and has announced the launch of We Work Well Virtual, a web-based meeting platform.

The platform takes the We Work Well concept online, connecting spa and wellness suppliers with decision-makers from luxury spas, through scheduled one-on-one meetings, education, and networking.

As COVID-19 continues to change the events landscape, company founders Monica Helmstetter and Lucy Hugo have been collaborating with their software team to develop a virtual meeting solution that most effectively translates their events into an online format.

Helmstetter said: “We’re using the challenges presented by the pandemic to further expand our platform and create a healthy event alternative. We’re thrilled that We Work Well Virtual can continue our mission of connecting suppliers and decision-makers, even in the absence of in-person events.”

“While we can never replicate the authentic face to face connection of a live We Work Well event,” explained Hugo, “we believe our new online meeting platform captures our unique approach to hosted buyer events. Though this innovation was a response to COVID-19, this is a tool we’ll continue to use well into the future.

“We see it as a way to broaden our reach and create new opportunities for our company and our suppliers and attendees,” she concluded.

The first We Work Well Virtual event will take place on 1 June 2020 and will be by invitation only.
