In-person events are all about involving delegates at every opportunity, whether through networking, one-to-one appointments, group activities, Q&A – not making them sit for hours listening to someone else. And, you may be surprised to learn, virtual events are no different.
Keynotes, while viewed remotely, can still involve live polling to draw delegates in, sessions can still involve live Q&A.
All of the exciting interactive features we associate with event apps are still available, allowing attendees to meet each other virtually, set up meetings, exchange details, vote, take part in polls and shape their own agenda.
And social media still has a valuable role to play, with the event hashtag pulling together comments, photographs and key takeaways, helping give the event a sense of community and shared purpose.
So much of what we do at conventional events now takes place in the digital realm, a virtual event is really no different.
Speakeasy will ensure our virtual events are engaging for everyone, making them as inclusive as possible. This means using clear language, large enough fonts and high colour contrasts at all attendee touchpoints, including presentations. Captions and visuals can be provided for audio content, and we have tools that ensure all visual content is accompanied by audio descriptions.
