Are You An Event Organizer? Switch to Virtual and Be At the Top of Your Game

by Michael Sema Founder and CEO of Get A Rate

While many of us prefer to be outside and enjoy the warm summer, we have no choice but to practice hygiene safety and social distancing to combat the novel Coronavirus. Wherever you are in the world, we hope that your community will safely practice social distancing. While numerous industries were hit by the pandemic, the event industry has felt it the worst, owing to the in-person nature of events. However, with the advent of virtual event apps, organizers are actively augmenting real-life events into virtual ones. 

As an event organiser, it is time to take the virtual route of organising online events. Do you have something important to tell the world about yourself, your family, friends, colleagues or your work in a certain sector?

Here’s what you can do:

  • You may want to hire a keynote speaker to address your audience online, such as a health and wellness expert who will explain how to stay in balance mentally and physically. 

  • You can also host weekly webinars by creating your own virtual webinar series, and you have many online platforms to choose from. 

  • Learn more about selecting the best virtual events for your business, family or even your private life. There is nothing worse than a businessman who cancels because he is too busy with his own business!

If your eyes and ears are connected to the Internet, you probably already know how schools, colleges and universities conduct their conferences online. It's time to embrace your virtual life and start planning a virtual conference via state-of-the-art event management apps. Simply doing this will enable you to turn your upcoming event into a successful online event that adds real value to the lives of attendees. 

It is also possible to use virtual events as a means to build long-term relationships with influencers, which can increase the range of events on offer in the virtual landscape. As an organizer, you can set up daily meditation and wellness LIVE streams on Instagram or Facebook LIVE. This is a great way to unite people through physical activity that maintains their social distance at home.

Conversely, if a concert, festival or live music gets cancelled, you can rebook it at any time on your virtual events page. Get artists and musicians booked for your event so they can appear on their event pages while increasing your visibility.

How and when you organize your online conference/ virtual event is an important aspect but where you will conduct it is probably one of those things that you just cannot get wrong. Choose wisely when selecting a virtual events platform. Each tool has a separate way of packaging their offers, as well as what admin tools you’ll have available to you. 


This is where it’ll take some shopping and product comparisons to determine what’s best for your webinar’s structure. If you intend to have the audience get involved, which can be effective and is a bigger trend these days, then tools with strong admin abilities would be favoured in order to control the audio.


So, don’t wait for the world to return to normalcy - virtual events are here to stay, especially to keep the magic of events alive. Go, get it!
