Company Webcast is a European market leader in webcasts related to investor and financial communication, and their ambitious goal is to now become the largest international network for all webcasts.
During the pandemic, the company experienced major growth when businesses switched to digital communication formats and developed a need for intensified communication due to changing market and organizational dynamics. Today, Company Webcast’s challenge is to maintain this momentum and ensure their clients continue to appreciate the value of webinars and webcasts.
