The Virtual Producer's Toolbox

While pivoting to virtual many #eventprofs have discovered that virtual event experiences differ from live events in many ways. We are in an age where technology is readily available, anyone can create & post a YouTube video, and Zoom fatigue is real. As a meeting planner new to the virtual world, partnering with a subject-matter expert is key to avoiding sleepless nights and creating a polished attendee experience.

This session will empower you to turn your event from a “post and hope” digital activation to a full engaging and immersive virtual production. In this session, we will share insights into the role of the virtual producer while providing tips and tricks for getting the most out of your virtual event production including:

    • Building a team that you can rely upon to deliver a polished virtual production
    • Common production mistakes new virtual adaptors make
    • Speaker preparation and coaching
    • The producer’s role in managing and communicating platform opportunities/limitations
    • Understanding the attendee attention span and tools to keep them glued to the screen
    • Managing the desire for human contact in the cold world of digital technology
