In this episode, we talk to Vicki Thein, Ewald Consulting’s Director of Events, Vicki Thein. In the episode, she tells us all about how to pull of an engaging an exciting virtual event.
- Find the platform that works best for you. Vicki explains that when you are looking for a platform to support your virtual guests, think about what you need from your platform. Do you want breakout rooms? The ability to answer virtual guests’ questions? Look out for what you and your organization want in a platform.
- Have different offerings for your different audiences. While it is important to make the virtual guests feel part of the event, Vicki explains that you should have an incentive for guests to be in person. That way, it will be worth it for the in-person attendees to take the time to be there. You can do this through special lunches, site tours and more.
- Hybrid events offer tremendous opportunity. Even after the pandemic, hybrid events offer the ability to attend events from anywhere in the world. The newfound flexibility that comes with the events may be here to stay.
