Web Event Services Forecast 2009 saw moderate growth for web events as enterprise test the waters with web events solutions; 2010 is the year of economic recovery, and enterprises will begin to spend smartly. Vendors will better educate the market on the value proposition of web events vs. web conferencing While demand will grow at healthy pace over the next several years, pricing pressures in combination with more cost efficient technology will drive prices down putting some pressure on revenue growth. Consolidation will occur in this market.
