Hello and happy Monday! We're back with another Huddle of the Week discussion. If you can believe it, we are on the tenth week of our Huddle of the Week series, and with that wanted to provide some insight in case you are new to the Community. Every week, the Community Team will be posting a relevant industry topic and discussion questions to spark strategic conversation and best practices in the Open Forum. The topics so far have ranged from virtual event KPIs, agenda content in a virtual setting, hotelier and venue communications on their health and safety measures, and much more. We hope each week you can look forward to a creative and thoughtful discussion where you can learn from your peers, and share your own experiences and thoughts, as well!
Now onto this week's discussion – we have had a ton of great dialogue surrounding virtual events, and sponsorship within that. However, we wanted to take the conversation to the next level and hear how you are executing a virtual tradeshow. For Cvent CONNECT Virtual (US and Europe), we used the Virtual Attendee Hub to offer virtual booths and appointments and had various opportunities within the event itself for our exhibitors.
Please share your insights below, even if you have not yet experienced this yourself! Feel free to ask any questions to other users, too. #HuddleoftheWeek #VoiceIt
For us we noticed virtual events received more attendance since we're a national company. Hosting a virtual event has been easier for all branches to attend without worry of travel plans.
In regards for sponsors and interaction we've utilized gamification within the crowd compass app and they hosted relevant breakout sessions.
