Virtual events are the new normal now. These events lack a traditional onsite meeting space and instead are hosted online. These types of activities have been around for a decade or more with adoption slowly increasing, but it took a global pandemic to normalize the use of our computers to attend virtual online events.
Today, millions of people attend new product launches, and social media platforms have greater audience engagement with their live events. Cisco reports that in the next year, 82% of all internet traffic will be related to the consumption of video content. Companies that capitalize on these trends will reap the benefits and those that don’t will risk falling behind. If you’re wondering how to come up with a winning virtual event idea, we have 11 to help you with your planning process.
Sneak peek/behind the scenes events give members or customers a look at how a product is made. For example, giving customers a tour of your chocolate factory satisfies their curiosity about your products. Audiences like the idea of understanding the inner working of your company and it humanizes the brand in a way that is engaging and sometimes inspirational. For example, a large enterprise organization that gives a percentage of its profits to charities could do a live event to show how that money is being put to use. A college could do a live virtual tour of its campuses, interviewing students and familiarizing new and prospective students with the facility. Non-profits such as zoos could go behind the exhibits to show how the animals are cared for.
