Live in 3... 2... 1... aaand blank stare. Nothing is a drag on a virtual event like a speaker that doesn’t realize they are live and is staring at the screen like they’re posing for a painting. Okay, maybe that can be hilarious. But a speaker that knows how to maximize the virtual experience, and attendees that understand how to engage, can bring a session to life. Whether they’re a speaker, sponsor, or attendee, it’s important to prep them to ensure they thrive during your virtual event.We've lived in the new remote, virtual world for a while now. Many of us have attended a virtual event, if not several, and know what to expect from virtual experiences. However, there are some of us that have yet to attend a virtual event and have no idea what to expect. Even for those of us that consider ourselves virtual event vets, the pace of innovation is so fast, that a new virtual event will feel entirely different than the one we attended a couple months ago. This makes it critically important to set expectations and train our users to ensure they have a successful event.
To show you how to set your speakers, attendees, and sponsors up for virtual event success, we've gathered a group of event prof vets. Featuring Erin Lee, Vice President Marketing & Customer Experience at Biotechnology Innovation Organization, Chrissy Parsons, Strategic Account Manager at Dynamic Events, and Allie Magyar, CEO at Hubb, this session will show you how to create and use a strategic communications plan for each of these groups. They’ll share best practices to make sure your speakers, sponsors, and attendees are ready to engage and create an impactful experience.
So click play on the video below to learn how to set yourself up for virtual event success! Just want the slides, you can find them here.
