Over the past year, event organisers have had to bring their educational goals to life while adapting to the challenges associated with shifting in-person events to virtual platforms.

While the shift to virtual has allowed for a broadened reach of essential findings across various fields, it is challenging to create the same atmosphere and attendee interaction on social media compared to onsite events.

The importance of uplifting social engagement for virtual events

In-person events create an exciting real-time buzz that encourages attendees to capture these live moments on their social media platforms, while virtual events often intermingle with attendees’ day to day activities. With virtual and hybrid events becoming the norm, it is crucial to focus on increasing social engagement for the attendees streaming sessions from home.

This can be achieved by:
1. Creating more interesting and interactive content unique to each social platform to keep audiences engaged both during and between sessions.
2. Convincing the audience through content to interact more with one another and exchange their findings and experiences with fellow attendees.
3. Immersing your audience in key discoveries uncovered during the event, thus creating lasting impressions and encouraging late registrations.
4. Continuous and optimal monitoring and interaction with virtual attendees.
