Hey everybody! We have some meaty in-person events in the summer usually, and these have pivoted to virtual. A main difference for us was to condense the program. Usually we offer a week-long, all-day program, but with taking into account screen fatigue and the fact that people are also taking care of their kids etc, we went down to a four-day program, and with having only three meetings per day, two in the morning and one early in the afternoon. Another big change is that we decided that instead of doing small group sessions and limiting capacity, our content would be more general and we would not limit capacity. On the tech side of thing, one thing we did that worked really well for our first event was to have not just one trainer leading the webinar, but have one or two trainers doing the speaking and have one or two extra trainers dealing with the content questions in the Q&A, running the polls and announcing the results of those, etc. We also always had one tech person addressing tech Q&A, and helping presenters with their documents and slides as needed.
Hi all! Our Small Meetings and Events sessions have officially wrapped up for this virtual Customer Success Group series. We had some fantastic conversation in the live breakout sessions that we wanted to share with the Community. Take a look at the attached file to see a completed virtual Small Meetings and Events checklist compiled from the best discussions in the sessions.
Do you have any additional steps to add to this checklist? Have you already hosted a virtual event and are eager to share the best practices you learned? Feel free to share your ideas or questions and keep the conversation going here for virtual small meetings!
