Yes! You can host a virtual event.

Our clients pivoted, so we did, too. 

In four months, we've produced 40 virtual events. We've livestreamed fundraisers, award ceremonies, graduations, sing-alongs, commemorative ceremonies, and town hall meetings. 

These events have been entirely virtual, filmed in our studio, and streamed on-location. They've been hosted by emcees, benefit auctioneers, nonprofit leaders, and volunteers. They've connected people who couldn't come together, raised funds for vital services, and been celebrations when we most needed something to celebrate.

, no matter what type of events you're planning, we're here to provide the technical expertise and media creativity to help you transform them into online broadcasts. Contact us soon to schedule your virtual events. September and October are booking quickly.

We hope the resources below will inspire your own virtual events and media projects.

MEDIA PRODUCTION
Share Your COVID-19 Safety Messages on Video

As counties and states reopen, communicating safety procedures is a new priority. Video is an effective way to demonstrate your COVID-19 safety protocol with staff, clients, and visitors. LPCWest recently worked with our media team to produce short videos distributed to their commercial property tenants. We can help you plan and film COVID-19 response messaging, too.
