SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/15/10 -- ON24, Inc., the global leader in webcasting and virtual event solutions, announced today the opening of new offices in Paris, France, and Hamburg, Germany. With an established presence in London, the new offices will enable ON24 to more effectively and efficiently meet customer needs in the growing European virtual events market and provide local support for global clients, enhancing the support provided by European partners. In addition, ON24 is further strengthening its European market presence with new multi-language product capabilities.
"Global expansion is a key component of our value proposition and growth strategy," said ON24 CEO Sharan Sharat. He stressed that ON24 is committed to further developing the European virtual events market by offering innovative virtual communication solutions and dedicated local support teams. "Our goal is to expand globally through a regional focus." Recent product innovations include ON24 Virtual Show multi-language support, with simultaneous, real-time translation of virtual event and webcast content.
In effect, the ON24 virtual event platform makes possible a global event that provides a regionalized experience to the end user. The unique multi-regional marketing support approach allows ON24 customers to re-purpose corporate content for distribution in local languages. "We allow organizations to deliver virtual events and webcasts in several different languages, maximizing the usage of content," explained Fergal Burke, ON24's director of EMEA Sales.
ON24 Virtual Show now supports seven languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified) and Japanese. "Delegates can choose their language of choice, for content and their user interface, when registering or on the fly within an event," Burke said. "The result is that ON24 can now provide a completely localized user experience, all across Europe."
Burke added, "We are aligning our sales organization in Europe to address market growth. With these additional offices and our continued innovation, ON24 is strengthening its European market leadership and positioning our sales team to take full advantage of market opportunities."
