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.
The whiteboard feature creates a more engaging experience for event guests. For business, whiteboarding promotes positive working mindsets for employees. They are helpful for brainstorming, gaming, making effective meetings, and engaging learning.
Polling is helpful for business and personal virtual events. Polling keeps Virtual Conference and meeting attendees engaged. Polling is used for party games and competitions, too.
