In 2020, virtual events are the way or the world. From staff meetings to happy hours to annual conferences – pretty much every company is transitioning from a conference room or arena to a virtual space.And with that transition comes challenges.Especially if you are taking something virtual for the first time.
And creating a professional event that still maintains a professional environment, encourages engagement and falls in line with your company terms and expectations can come with even more challenges.
When offices began working remotely, bad lighting, muted microphones and someone’s inability to share their screen were all common meeting experiences that were just overlooked. People were quickly thrown into an environment they might not have been prepared for.But now that we are several months into this new way of life, more companies are looking for ways to make their virtual experiences comparable – or even better – than previous in-person versions have been.
Utilizing tools like breakout rooms, chat features, green rooms and more, you can take your next event to the next level.But the technical execution will make or break these features.An experienced AV consultant will help you create a truly professional event that will take it from casual to broadcast quality.
Branding is what part of what creates that “together” feeling in a company.Maybe you traditionally wear uniforms. Or you company logo and colors are plastered all over the office. You all use company pens and notepads.A company generally uses its brand in a wide variety of ways, both to market to potential customers that come into the building and also to create a cohesive environment for their employees.
But what happens when we’re all working from home?All of that branding disappears.But you can bring it back, thanks to audio visual tools!Our experienced AV team can create titles, background graphics, pre- and post-event polls and breaks slides all with your branding.There are no printing costs – because it’s virtual, of course – and it will have everyone feeling one step closer to actually being back together!
Speaking of wanting to feel like we’re actually together, water cooler conversations are one of the things missing the most in virtual events.
But guess what? We can even bring that back virtually!Virtual exhibit halls are ideal for virtual events. Vendors and sponsors can each have their own respective booth with a chat section, videos and downloadable documents.Guests can individually rotate between the different booths in the virtual exhibit hall and interact with each other in those spaces.
While the virtual environment does bring about different challenges than the physical one, when executed with the right tools, it can be just as enjoyable of an experience.
