Virtual meetings are becoming more and more common.  If you need to offer a virtual experience at your next event, regardless of the reason, know that you have options.  Here are just a few of the virtual meeting services available...
With 360-degree camera technology and virtual reality (VR) headsets, attending live events as a virtual attendee is now possible.  Read how Markey’s partnered with Purdue University Global for a first-of-its-kind pilot program to allow graduates to participate in commencement as virtual attendees.
What exactly is live streaming?  Simply put, it is the streaming of content from a live event to a remote viewer. This viewer can be on-site in an overflow room or thousands of miles away on a completely different continent. Live streaming in its simplest form typically doesn’t involve any communication or interaction between the event and the viewers.  The stream can be viewed on a variety of platforms such as customized websites or social media channels.
Web conferencing typically includes some sort of communication between the live event and the remote viewers.  For example, a remote presenter may web conference into the live event to deliver his presentation to the live audience. Web conferencing can also include two-way communication, allowing both the remote attendee/presenter and those at the live event to communicate back and forth with each other.  Check out our Best Practice Guide for Remote Presenters.
Allow your audience to be part of the event and interact when appropriate. There are many tools available for remote audience engagement. These tools include social media integration, moderated chat, virtual Q & A, survey and polling applications, and more.
We know it can be a little intimidating if this is the first time you are including a virtual or remote attendee opportunity at your event.  Even if you are familiar with live streaming and you are expanding the experience to include web conferencing or remote audience engagement, you may have questions.  We’ve created a resource to help answer some of the common questions and help you seamlessly execute the virtual experience.
