How to Plan, Host & Run a Virtual Event – 5 Tips
8th February 2012 by Rachel Willis
If you’ve ever tried to plan, host and run a Virtual Event, online business conference or webinar then you’ll know that the first hurdle you have to overcome is a technical one.
When we were creating our Video Streaming and Virtual Event offering we did a lot of market research on other products and services that are available. While there are some excellent companies out there offering Virtual Event production and streaming services, the majority offer a very confusing mix of products and services that are very difficult to understand and make sense of. At least, that’s what some customers are led to believe anyway…
(Video Streaming often looks more complicated than it really is!)
When I organised my first Virtual Event back in 2009 for our sister company, YellowSpanner, I was totally perplexed by the technical jargon I was given by several companies offering Virtual Event and streaming services. I became so worried about taking the job on that I invested a hell of a lot of money to get a company to run all of the technical streaming elements for us. I literally worried myself sick about the job right up until the ‘live streaming’ part was over!
Fast forward two and a half years and I now fully understand how Live Streaming and Virtual Events work, which is a good thing as we offer them as services here at VirtualStudio.TV! And you know what? It’s not as complicated as you might think. In the video below I am going talk through the 5 main points you need to think about from a technical perspective when organising a Virtual Event. I hope you find this information helpful and if you do have any queries at all, please post a comment or just pick up the phone and contact the team today, we’d love to hear from you!
