Planning for a Future of Virtual Events
Four people in a studio. One behind a camera, one at a laptop, two on stage

Let's plan for the future, since there's no going back.

First the spring scramble to transform live events into virtual fundraisers. Then a summer of sharing new best practices for virtual galas. We're sure this has been a year like none other for everyone. 

Now it's time to be fully proactive in planning virtual events. Rapidly advancing livestream techology combined with your unlimited creative ideas means fundraising in the future will continue to evolve. We're ready and eager to partner with you to produce engaging virtual and hybrid events in the months and years ahead. 

This month's newsletter includes our definition of virtual and hybrid events, a review of virtual gala elements, and a video production Q & A. Contact us anytime if you have questions about these or any livestreaming, media production, or event audiovisual topic.

FUTURE OF EVENTS
When We Say Hybrid, This Is What We Mean

When gatherings of all sizes were banned and everything shifted online, a new vocabulary developed. As we plan for a near-future of small events in big spaces streamed to an online audience, it's helpful to define the terminology.
