Overview of Virtual Conference Services

Virtual conferences and summits are complex online events that require months of planning, preparation, and promotion. If you’re learning how to host a virtual conference for the first time, it can be overwhelming. These events typically last for an entire day or run over several days, and include multiple speakers, a variety of different types of content, and breakout sessions.

When it comes to virtual conference planning, you’ll have a lot to consider, including the number of sessions you’ll want to cover, whether admission will be paid vs unpaid, how to get sponsorships and monetize the event, and how to ensure the entire conference goes smoothly from one speaker to the next, from one session to the next.

We can help take the stress out of virtual conference planning.

Technical Setup
and Production

You’ll need a high-quality virtual conference solution to ensure your big conference or summit goes off without a hitch. The last thing you need is technical glitches, slow speeds, and production problems negatively affecting your event. Technical considerations include email customization, audio and video support, closed captioning, recording management, and interaction tools. You’ll need some tech pros on your team to pull off a successful virtual conference.

Hosts &
Moderators

Your virtual conference will require a master-level moderator for the entire event, as well as separate hosts and moderators for each individual session.

Be thoughtful about the subject matter experts you ask to join the conference, and ensure each host has adequate speaker training and presentation skills to provide an interactive, entertaining, and educational experience for your attendees.

Content

Content

Content for virtual conferences and summits includes everything from the initial website landing page, registration emails, and promotional assets, to the individual scripts, Q&As, polls, and presentation content for each session. Expect to spend dozens of hours preparing content, handouts, and presentation slides for the big event. You’ll need writers, an editor, and designers for content creation.
