Top 5 Tips for Virtual Event Hosts

Virtual event hosts have a lot of planning to do that includes collaborating with project managers on how they want the event set up, communicating clear expectations for the event, managing costs, and making sure attendees have the best time. Here are some tips that you can employ as a virtual event host. 

1: Put Effort Into the Presentation’s Look and Feel

As a virtual event host, you have a lot riding on how your event looks. Your virtual event should not only be loaded with powerful features but also fascinate the eye of the attendee. When an attendee clicks on a live webinar, they plan on staying there for the content and learning experience. However, a bland layout might be off-putting.

 vFairs all new webinar layout can help you jazz up live webinar visuals and give your event an immersive feel. Attendees can enjoy a pleasing view with the new pop-out webinar for live, semi-live, and on-demand videos. You can also incorporate a live Q&A session within the new webinar layout.

2: Let Attendees Pay For the Webinars They Want To See

A virtual event naturally offers a ton of flexibility to both you and your attendees. Most attendees only want to attend a few sessions that add value to their experience.

You can choose to give them the choice of adding the webinars that they’re interested in the most. The webinar-add on feature enhancement can help attendees on a budget make sure they get in the events and sessions that they want.

3: Highlight Your Speaker Profiles 

Your attendees will thank you for gathering all the information about speakers and their sessions and putting it in one place. You can do that by adding the all new Speaker Hub page in your event platform. 

The page has a fantastic layout displaying the speakers’ names, bios, pictures, and their designated sessions. Attendees can join sessions and also start a private chat with speakers directly from the Speaker Hub listing.

4: Make Presentations Accessible to All People

Virtual events can be a fantastic way to reach a global audience. This means users can join in from different countries and may understand different languages. You need to keep all members of your audiences in mind and make sure the platform caters to multilingual users as well. 

The vFairs platform facilitates generation of multilingual webinars with just a few clicks. The backend settings are quick and easy to manage and your webinar will be good to go in multiple languages simultaneously.

5: Set Up Pre-Recorded Video Access

While users can join your virtual event from across the globe, you want to make sure they can access all elements of the event, especially webinars. Even if users miss out on a live webinar, they should be able to refer back to it at a convenient time.   

Now event admins can upload pre-recorded and on-demand sessions on Vimeo and Alibaba in one go. Experience dual uploads in lesser time. 

How Virtual Event Attendees Can Enhance Their Experience

The new feature enhancements in the vFairs platform can take virtual event attendee experience to the next level. Here are some ways that these updates can make a difference:

1: Efficiently Manage All Your Notes

Have you ever taken notes in a hurry only to later not remember what they were for? Well, you’re not the only one. Virtual events can be a handful and most attendees like to take notes as they go. This can be especially true during webinars or when visiting different vendor booths. The vFairs event app organizes the notes you take at booths and webinars in a dedicated section. 

When you’re attending a live webinar, the app lets you take notes within the webinar tab. You can type in whatever you like and save the note. You can later find it in the My Notes tile under Sessions. Saving you the hassle of sorting out all your notes from the event.

2: Easily Search For Your Favorite Sessions

If you are attending a virtual event with a lot of sessions, finding the ones you want to attend should be easy. Scrolling through the agenda might take time but not when you have the vFairs mobile Auditorium search. You can search through the entire auditorium, by day, or your own schedule with simple keywords.

3: Stay On-Budget with Webinar Add-Ons

The webinar add-on option not only serves organizers but is a great value add for event attendees as well. You can opt into specific webinars at an extra price per webinar, or opt out of webinars so you don’t pay for presentations you don’t want to attend.

This will help you plan your event accordingly, and create a custom experience just for you.

4: Connect with Speakers Efficiently

Many attendees log in to virtual events with the objective of networking with fellow attendees and speakers. Networking with the right people at such events can be fruitful and the Speaker Hub can help. Attendees can find and join speaker sessions and spark direct conversations with chat, audio & video calls. 

Conclusion

The latest webinar and presentation enhancements are superb for attendees and event hosts in more ways than one. They have been designed keeping pain points in mind and thus provide effective solutions. These new features and enhancements add practicality and convenience to your event, and uplift visuals.
