Virtual Events: The Future is Here
Virtual events provide an online platform in which those with an interest in attending can do so by connecting in a virtual environment. This boasts endless possibilities; webinars, webcasts, online conferences and team building activities to name a few. You can connect and engage live with hundreds of people across the world simultaneously right from your mobile device on your desk.
Whilst large gatherings are not currently permitted, that doesn’t mean you can’t engage with large groups of people. In fact, you can still make the most of the people you can get into a room in a face-to-face event; creating a virtual event in one of our studios and broadcasting it online can ensure high rate of engagement with no restrictions.
Companies can adopt a range of styles to adapt to the event itself. Whilst a webcaster style will allow event hosts to present and interact with their content, a set-up such as one that mimics a talk show allows for more informal, conversational event. This need for a suitable space is still necessary despite its digital connection.
Interacting with hundreds of participants simultaneously positions technology as a consideration for events; the connection with movement and voice and the interpretation of realism makes for a very effective way to communicate.
Whether it’s a fully managed conference, a virtual training activity or a team building exercise, a platform delivery has huge potential for success.
Hybrid Events: A Union of Virtual and Physical
Hybrid events are effectively a compromise of physical and online experiences, achieved simply by inviting a small portion to join the event in person and bringing in a larger proportion to participate virtually, thus combing the benefits of VR tools and elements whilst keeping travel expenses, other relevant costs and physical encounters to a minimum.
Allowing attendees to participate from wherever they sit in the world, either in-person or online, offers everyone flexibility and convenience whilst allowing you to achieve a broader reach and impact, regardless of geographical limitations.
Both virtual and hybrid events extend various benefits, including flexibility, cost efficiency, networking and potential to receive long-term ROI. But its effectiveness in the current climate and abiding to the social distancing rules without limiting the live experience of an immersive situation allows both event types to thrive.
