Clients and Conference Organisers alike have been challenged and adapted to new ways of audience reach, engagement and interaction since the events industry was affected so extremely in 2020. The global pandemic quickly shut everything down and we looked to the world of virtual meetings and conferences.
By researching the various online solutions and virtual platforms, the team of project managers here at Opening Doors & Venues, are able to advise clients on the best virtual platform solution to suit bespoke client needs and ensure your conference, workshop, course, awards ceremony, seminars, panel discussions, clinical debates, poster sessions, sponsored symposia (you name it) look and feel that much better than a Zoom or Teams meeting gone wrong.
Virtual and hybrid events have the all-inclusive added benefit of reaching a wider audience in a sustainable way, greatly increasing the number of people who can attend and extend their reach, especially for international meetings. Although many clients worry that virtual attendees may expect to attend without charge, virtual paid-for events are very much an attraction because they eliminate the additional costs of travel and accommodation.
No physical filming or delivery element; all presentations, whether pre-recorded or live, are delivered in the virtual environment
Physical ‘main stage’ studio environment is created (this can be in the venue of your choice) and host, keynote speakers and presenters travel to the venue to deliver the material from the physical venue; the content is then streamed via a virtual platform
As with the other hybrid option, but the additional inclusion of a limited number of physical delegates (per government regulations and respecting social-distancing venue capacity); virtual audiences’ dialog is encouraged with physical audiences via virtual platforms and integrated apps
