Virtual Events are convenient, and these days they are commonplace. At some point, we’ve connected with coworkers, friends, and family with a video platform. With many of us living far from family, friends and working remotely, we’ve become accustomed to meeting online.
Whether you’re hosting a virtual St. Patrick’s Day party, celebrating a birthday, or hosting a webinar for colleagues and clients, there are several features an online event must-have.
Here we break down the top features for virtual events platforms:
Just like a party crasher in real life, an unwanted guest in a virtual event can wreak havoc. Event planners need to be aware of cybersecurity threats that can affect their attendees and, if a business, their company. We suggest event managers avoid hacking with a secure event platform like WeInvite.
Screen sharing is a must-have feature. Whether you’re getting a group together to watch a Live Event, a movie, or a business, screen sharing allows you to pull up an event stream, play a video or share a presentation. When you have participants on the call, make sure you select “share computer sound” so you and your participants can see and talk to one another.
If you’re hosting a large party or a web conference, breakout rooms give attendees a place to connect. An event planner can start the breakout rooms based on topics; you can even allow attendees to self-select what room they want to join.
