2.6 Build Visual Memories
Recent studies have concluded that visual content creates more curiosity and helps the viewers to become engaged quickly. Use visual content such as presentation videos, use cases, and visual storytelling during the event along with speech and text. It is the best way to reach the minds of the attendees. It will also help the attendees to become connected with the topic.
2.7 Be Interactive with the Attendees
Don't be a speaker who is just delivering the session content--always host an interactive session. This attendee involvement in the virtual event will increase the session energy. It is even more critical for virtual events where chances of getting distracted from the event are abundant. Give the attendees opportunities to share their thoughts before, during and after the event.
2.8 Provide Effortless Accessibility
Easy accessibility is the another important aspect of virtual events. Always have a link available and accessible before the event time for all interested attendees. You can send the link in their email ids, where it will be available to everyone. A final reminder email for the event is the best tool for a virtual event access link. You can also provide tips on attending the virtual event with a step-by-step guide in the final reminder mail itself.
2.9 Practice Event Engagement Tools
The attendee count measures the success of any event. To pull more attendees to the event, you must have a good, event-attendee engagement plan. This plan must work for the three phases of the event, i.e., pre-event, event, and post-event.
Use some of the latest audience engagement tools such as chat tools, group discussions, surveys, online polls, etc. These tools will keep the audience connected throughout your event.
All the above elements are necessary to make the virtual event enjoyable, uninterrupted and memorable. In addition, keep an eye out for good sponsors looking to promote their products/services and those who are in search of opportunities with virtual events.
Making the virtual event enjoyable will move the event one step forward toward success. You must try various elements to engage the attendees for virtual events. Innovative ideas for events always reach the heart of event attendees and sponsors. So, try to make your virtual conference unique by using state-of-the-art features.
