It’s true: Zoom fatigue is real. These days, event professionals must work harder than ever to make virtual corporate events engaging and worthwhile. As virtual events are bound to continue into 2021 and beyond (with hybrid events becoming the new go-to event format), event professionals need to rethink how they are planning and producing their events.
This includes cultivating a new mindset (think “live TV show”) as well as new skill sets. Companies must learn how to deliver meaningful content through innovative technology — while also maintaining the communal spirit of a live event.
The good news? Event companies can reach new audiences while amplifying in-person events with virtual components.
On October 13, 2020, CEO and Co-Founder of PartySlate Julie Roth Novack joined a team of virtual event experts from Blueprint Studios, a premier event design and production company, to share best practices for creating and producing next-level (and meaningful) virtual and hybrid events:
- Dominic Venn-Lever, General Manager, Blueprint Studios
- Lily Yeung, Director of Sales, Blueprint Studios
- Camila Pinzon, Creative BD Director, Blueprint Studios
Together, they also explored ways to keep attendees engaged through a more user-friendly and immersive experience. Additionally, they discussed the advantages of integrating physical events with virtual components, thereby allowing for more inclusivity and accessibility. Julie concluded the event by sharing a list of virtual event resources on PartySlate.
