How to organize a virtual event
A virtual event is similar to an offline event but the attendees are gathered online, not in person. A physical event venue is replaced by a platform for virtual events hosting. In fact, organizing an online event requires the same amount of energy, time and other resources as preparing a real event.
An event organizer has to come up with ideas for promotion and marketing, audience engagement and content creation to ensure an overall one-of-a-kind event experience. All in all, it might be challenging to manage everything, especially if you’ve never organized a virtual event before.
