There’s no doubt that virtual events are here to stay—during the remainder of the current global pandemic and long after. Holding events virtually helps businesses save on costs and opens the event up to tons of additional attendees, ensuring businesses will continue to draw on virtual events in the future. Therefore, an easy-to-use platform will be of primary importance.
Just like with a traditional conference, the key to having a great virtual conference is hosting it in the right place, and that means choosing the right technology. You’ll want to choose a virtual event platform that can accommodate the type of content you want to provide and the number of participants you’re expecting. You’ll also want to make sure that the virtual event platform works with existing technology in your organization, so that your IT department won’t need to reinvent the wheel. What type of support is available for your virtual conference solution is also a key factor to consider.
You’ll also want to look for tools that are modular, allowing you to implement the features that make sense for your event and your audience, without being forced to add features that don’t make sense for your needs.
Since virtual conferences require post-event evaluation and follow-up just like traditional conferences, you’ll also want to choose a virtual conference platform that can provide you with the insights you need, grow with you as your event grows, and provide a backbone for others.
It’s likely that (in the short term) your need to collaborate with a distributed workforce on your virtual event. Here’s a quick checklist of what you’ll need:
Five point remote broadcast checklist:
–Connectivity: Chances are your company’s office wifi is better than what you have at home. Check your speeds and, when possible, use a wired connection.
–Capture: How will your audience enjoy your content? Think about what cameras and mics you’ll use, and how you’ll bring in remote guests to your virtual event.
-Encode: What software will you use to bring your event into the internet ether? We’re keen on Momento live, quick and easy!
-Distribute: Where will your virtual event live? Think about whether you’ll want to secure the content or spread far and wide (think simulcasting).
-Engage: A beautiful viewing experience is only part of what makes a great virtual event. Audience engagement tools like live Q&A, polls, and chat can further create a memorable event.
But when it comes to truth, the important thing is to know how to manage the platform (without dying in the effort).
That is why at Momento Live we have created an intuitive administration panel for all audiences. With differentiated options such as live, statistics, messaging or networking, the administrator will be able to manage the event from beginning to end.
It should be noted the statistics, in which you can verify the number of attendees to the event, the time they stayed on the platform or the time they have spent watching the streaming.
All on the same screen!
You can also send private messages to the attendees of the event and answer their questions in real time. And the favourite part; networking. that allows you to create real-time chats and discussion groups as well as virtual meeting rooms, breakout sessions, and virtual coffee hours. We use artificial intelligence to help create better and closer connections between attendees, “matching” them through their actual interactions in the space.
