Using Your Call for Speakers to Maintain Your Event's Brand Presence

Event planners are gathering session topic proposals for their events to stay top-of-mind during the coronavirus lockdown.

Lockdowns and social distancing measures due to COVID-19 are creating huge uncertainty for the events world at the moment.

You’ve likely dealt with one-off event disruptions for years, and hopefully have a crisis management plan in place to address those situations.

Perhaps understandably so given that the live events industry has come to an almost complete standstill. However, are we placing too much emphasis on the need for companies to diversify into the virtual sphere once we finally reach the daylight at the end of this unprecedented tunnel?

Curate meaningful interaction with your participants - especially the ones sitting at home

Everybody who works in the event industry knows how vital it is to maintain strong engagement levels with their participants. High ratings and positive feedback often follow when event organizers are able to successfully involve participants throughout a meeting! There are plenty of good activities to use in a physical meeting in order to promote engagement, but what if the participants are participating virtually and calling in through a conference platform?
