The most successful virtual events are a part of a long-term audience acquisition & retention strategy. Learn more before beginning to plan your next virtual event.

NOTE: This playbook is designed as further reading from our core Virtual Event Playbook for seasoned event producers to leverage a more advanced technical design to deliver events, so the assumption is that you already understand the core components of designing an accessible and inclusive event. If you have not read our core playbook, please do so before proceeding to learn foundational knowledge for our services.

Compelling events are about people

Throughout your process of producing a virtual event, it is critical to prioritize the following elements:

  • The clarity of your message
  • The attendee experience
  • Your ongoing engagement strategy

All technology decisions should be made with these key elements in mind. Often the most important thing to invest in is the storytelling skills of your Presenters who will land your core messages.

Ensure your content has a follow-up lifecycle for attendees who want to continue learning, review content offline, or ask questions.

Events are no longer a destination – they fuel connection, ongoing learning and engagement.
