Everything you need to do before, during, and after your event.
Your checklist to launch a successful virtual event in 4 weeks.
It’s overwhelming to think about where to begin with transitioning or breaking into the virtual event space. It feels like you’re suddenly running a tech company and not the live experience you’re used to. And while it may seem like everyone’s hosting virtual events at this point, that’s not entirely the case. We polled a group of event organizers during our Webinar and over half haven’t tackled this exciting new territory yet.
From your tech stack to creating value for your sponsors, there are a lot of decisions to make and systems to put into place, before holding a virtual event. Your attendees are going to have questions and concerns that may have never come up before, and you want to make sure you’re delivering an awesome experience! It can be tricky to think about all questions or scenarios that may arise during this brand new experience you’re creating. Giving your team guidance and direction in their new roles won’t be easy if you’re not sure what those roles involve.
Despite this, we’ve been talking to event organizers who are:
- Selling more tickets.
- Growing their audience and attendees.
- Giving sponsors more visibility and more impressions.
- Keeping their communities engaged.
- Creating long-lasting value for participants.
A successful virtual event will open up your event to a whole new demographic and create opportunities to book top speakers. You’ll be able to capture evergreen content and create a platform for your attendees to stay engaged and involved beyond just your event dates. Your event can become a global event with participants that can contribute their unique perspective from anywhere in the world.
