Webcast 2.0: What Successful Live Event Planners Know


We’ve had a full year of experience in replacing in-person events of all kinds with digital events. As the ones responsible for making these events successful, it’s time to take a step back and share what we’ve learned.

Join us for an exclusive roundtable and networking lunch with some of your fellow experts in online event planning (even if that expertise was acquired in the last year). You’ll have a chance to chat with peers and listen to a roundtable of experts who have been making this work for their own organizations.

In the panel, we’ll cover some of the big questions we’ve all been struggling with in the last year, such as:

  •  How attitudes have changed towards company events in the last year
  •  Choosing the right virtual format for different kinds of company events
  • Guiding executives towards event formats and techniques that are successful
  • Planning strategies for event content, including deciding what to do live and what to pre-record
  • Balancing needs for pre-scripted vs spontaneity
  • Getting attendees excited and interacting, before, during, and after the event
  • Managing executive expectations and tech team requirements
