people in transition to online eventsAs a result of the Coronavirus stay-at-home orders and quarantine, companies, organizations, businesses, and the like, must transition their typical in-person events to an online setting. On the surface this may seem like a simple shift. However, changing an event that has always been face to face is not easy. Various adjustments will need to be made in order to ensure that the new digital event is just as successful.

With this in mind, we have outlined useful information to help you transition to online events and meetings.

  • First and foremost, focus on creating a positive and enjoyable experience for your attendees.
    • Your online event should have a specific purpose and concrete goals. Whether the focus of your event is to educate the audience or get the audience to perform a definitive action or task, you want to ensure their needs are being met.
  • Define clear-cut goals and objectives for your online event.
    • What do you want to accomplish? What do you want your audience to get out of this event? By answering these questions prior to the event, you will be able to take the proper steps to achieve your goals and objectives.
  • You won’t be able to exactly imitate an in-person event.
    • It is important to understand that adjustments will need to be made in order to move your event to an online setting. This does not mean that the event will not be successful. It only means that things will need to be done differently than in the past.
  • Partner with the professionals at Xyvid and Dyventive.
