Evolving Virtual Events

With the advent of virtual event technology, event organisers are looking to transform physical events into virtual events. With a bit of creativity and patience, it’s possible to mimic a physical event experience from the comfort of your home.


Ice-Breakers

Without the ability to meet other delegates face to face, it sometimes helps to break the delegation into smaller groups and have simple ice-breaker activities. Having everyone post answers to a few common questions can help bridge connections between one another, creating a memorable experience.

Yoga

One thing about virtual events are that they confine you to a fixed location. After a few hours, it helps to stretch. By adding in feeds of Yoga tutorials, it’s a simple method to give your delegates a chance to rest and meditate, provide relief and reduce anxiety at the same time. This few moments of relaxation is part of the use of experience psychology.


Charades

Simple competitions can be staged like charades where teams can guess what their team member is acting or drawing can help provide an element of levity and help break the ice amongst the group. By seeding elements of your event topics, you can tap on the delegates’ contagious creativity and create a story driven virtual experience.

Interactive Dinners

A big part of events are the networking aspects while everyone gathers over food. By planning a menu and having deliveries during the event, you can curate a hybrid virtual, multi-sensory yet out-of-the-box brand experience as you invite each of your guests to open each course together and share in the culinary journey together.


Virtual Game Booths / Photobooths

Virtual Reality Booths incorporating AR and VR technology can help drive your booth experience. These allow your delegates to make full use of the virtual platform and immerse themselves in it, seeing themselves using your products. These are hands on experiences that are easier to scale up as compared to a physical event limited by space and time. This can also be gamified and used for sponsorship sales.


In the end, what makes something memorable is that it’s not just any experience, but an experience driven journey which you put into action which will aid in making your event unique in an ever changing world.
