MEETUPCALL PROVES IT’S GOOD TO TALK
Global demand for UAE-based conference provider has rocketed as a result of COVID-19
UAE-based conference provider Meetupcall has reported a 300 percent increase in global enquiries and a 500 percent rise in new subscriptions in the UAE since the outbreak of the coronavirus.
However, CEO Simon Moxon (pictured) revealed total customer usage has seen a 40 percent weekon-week increase over the last four weeks as more and more employers adopt work-from-home policies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
He said: “Remote working is not a new concept. While more conservative industries such as banking and legal firms have been rooted in traditional officebased working, industries such as technology, marketing agencies and sales organisations have been reaping the benefits of hotdesking and remote working for quite some time.
“However, during the past two months, we have seen a marked increase in enquiries from businesses recognising the need to embrace change and adapt to the reality that modern, remote working is rapidly becoming the new norm.”
