Last Wednesday, vFairs CEO, Muhammad Younas, hosted the Enhancing Your Virtual & Hybrid Events Webinar. It covered new vFairs updates along with deep-diving into the changing events landscape. With nearly five years of experience under its belt, Younas also discussed what makes vFairs special.
The webinar covered the following topics:
Here’s the complete recap!
The virtual event platform industry has been exploding since early 2020. With so many different options, how do you choose the right platform for your event? Let’s take a look at why vFairs should be your number one choice:
Next, Younas revealed the new engagement features launched at vFairs. These were inspired by customer feedback and requests and are designed to make the vFairs experience more engaging than ever before.
vFairs webinars have always offered polls and surveys. Asking questions during the webinar helps attendees feel more involved and engaged. In a bid to make more options available, we’ve also added a Slido integration to the platform.
Now, attendees can ask questions and hosts can run polls with the Slido interface. This will also help speakers collect questions in advance to learn more about their audience or post a moderated Q&A feed.
vFairs has also improved its language capabilities and made the platform more inclusive and accessible globally.
The new Wordly & Interprefy integrations provide real-time translation of both your live and pre-recorded webinar content into 16 other languages. Enable your attendees to listen or read the sessions in their language of choice and entertain a diverse attendance from around the world.
These integrations will also let people with hearing impairments access your webinar content more easily.
The webinar experience has also gotten an upgrade. We’ve made the webinar tab customizable to provide you another avenue to deliver information.
And there’s a lot that you can do with this. Brand your entire webinar tab to strengthen brand awareness or share speaker and sponsor information. You can also add links to the webinar tab to further enhance the viewer experience, like adding LinkedIn profiles for your speakers.
We’ve enhanced our chat functionality by introducing the embedded chat option. Let attendees network with speakers, attendees, and booth reps from anywhere in the event.
Just open the embedded chat, search for your person of interest, and start the conversation. Minimize once you’re done! The conversation stays safe and within your view even as you navigate away from it.
We’ve also added tags within the chat tabs so you easily see whether the people in the list are speakers, booth reps, or other attendees.
The new Miro integration lets you collaborate with your attendees in real-time on a whiteboard. This helps stimulate everyone and get them more invested in the event. You can brainstorm with people at the event, collaborate, and bring innovative new ideas to the table. These are especially great for summits and employee events.
Walls.io is a social media wall that collects social posts related to your event and displays them in a tab. This
Here’s why you should try this out:
The new virtual photo booth is as interactive as a real-life photo booth. It offers a social activity that all your attendees can partake in.
The vFairs photo booth comes with photo, boomerang, and gif functions. You can also view all the photos of people at the event from the photo gallery.
Take things up a notch by introducing prizes and draws for picture-takers! Again, this helps promote FOMO and improve engagement at the event.
Amp up the entertainment with a game of Kahoot! Kahoot offers an interactive way of learning and competing. And of course, raise the stakes with prizes!
Hand out your prizes with a lot more thrill and excitement! The vFairs spin the wheel is customizable and dynamic. Attach prizes with each segment and keep your attendees on their toes.
We’ve also improved the hybrid experience with better reporting and live streams.
After the feature announcements, Younas ventured into the world of hybrid events.
He noted that the tide of virtual events has shifted. vFairs customers still want to keep a virtual element in their future events, whether or not they host a physical component. And it makes sense. Virtual events take your events to a global audience and help you tap into a market you just couldn’t get to before.
That’s where the rising popularity of hybrid events comes in.
Hybrid events are events that have both a physical and virtual component. They’re a great way to combine the benefits of both event types. Hybrid events help organizers scale at a lower cost, tap into global audiences, and provide convenience to their attendees.
It’s a technology offering that empowers event organizers to run a live in-person event with a limited audience while hosting a virtual event to host online attendees, cap-free.
Here are six major benefits of trying out hybrid events.
Hybrid events have come a long way. And it’s not easy to run virtual and in-person events together. That’s why there are three different types of hybrid events so you can always choose the one that fits your needs and bandwidth the best.
The lite and sequential hybrid event types are the most requested ones at vFairs. They’re also easier to execute for organizers. The complex hybrid type often requires a lot of manpower and hence, isn’t as popular. However, the vFairs hybrid event feature set is primed for all types of hybrid events.
The session ended with an interactive Q&A session. Here are our favorites:
Q1. Can vFairs customize avatar clothing? Absolutely yes. All our avatars are customizable. We’ve also hosted events with avatars based on real representatives and diverse age and ethnic groups.
Q2. Does vFairs onboard speakers? Yes. We do group onboardings and even individual ones based on our customer’s requirements. We always run tests before every event to make sure that all stakeholders are comfortable with the platform and there aren’t any glitches. We’ve recently organized an event with 600 speakers and we onboarded all of them. Younas believes that our biggest strength is our event management and customer support.
Q3. How many engagement features does vFairs offer? We have 17 in total, probably the most out there.
And that’s a wrap! Let us know what you’d like our future webinars to cover and shoot us an email if you have any questions.
