Recent surveys suggest up to 50% of delegates are suffering from Zoom fatigue! Therefore, Virtual Events need to be highly engaging and energising to ensure you maximize your opportunity to deliver key messages.
It is more important than ever to engage your team with a company update or virtual awards. You can even incorporate activities, including cocktail masterclasses, chocolate workshops, race nights and virtual games – the choice is endless!
Here’s just a few ways we create energetic, content driven, fast paced, visually exciting virtual events –
1. ENCOURAGE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
As with any event, there needs to be a social element to connect your delegates. Breakout groups, live chat function and engagement boxes direct to their doors is a great way to do this (maybe with some swag for them to all wear during the sessions!) The microsites we create act as a hub for your delegates to chat, watch the live stream and engage with the content you’re producing.
2. CREATE AN EXPERIENCE
A variety of engaging sessions will be key to keeping your audience’s attention throughout the event. We recommend a mixture of traditional live sessions, pre-recorded and existing content as well as a variety of session formats including live hosted talks, messages, panel discussions, interviews and Q&A!
3. WHAT DO YOU WANT GUESTS TO THINK, FEEL AND DO?
Build a narrative around your event just as you would if it was live. Why are you having your event? What do you want your delegates to get out of it? Asking these questions is how we ensure you get a return on investment and your guests leave feeling inspired and informed.
4. KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET
Staring constantly at a screen for 8 hours is no good for anyone. Virtual events should include plenty of breaks for food and drink, toilet and switch off time.
5. QUALITY OF PRODUCTION
67% of livestream viewers say quality is the most important factor. We can create virtual events anywhere! From your office boardroom, warehouse or at Make Events HQ, our studio can create a bespoke experience for your guests.
