Why Plan A Virtual Event?
Increased Return on Investment
Producing an exceptional virtual event is not necessarily budget-relieving, but the trade-off for reaching a wider audience greatly improves your ROI. Depending on your goals and format for your event, virtual may be the best way to go if you want to expose your message to the masses. Virtual content is evergreen and can be viewed thousands of times over after the event date, allowing for ongoing interaction with your brand, special guests, and sponsors.
For some clients, nothing can replace the in-person engagement of intimate events. Many of our clients are reimagining future events as a hybrid of both virtual and live, with smaller and more curated live events that focus on engagement and connection, paired with a virtual component.
They Can Reach A Wider Audience
Attendance at physical, in-person events are limited to the capacities of the venues they’re hosted in. As we re-emerge into live events, event capacities may continue to be limited for safety reasons. With virtual events, a streaming service gives you the power to offer your event to anyone and everyone! You may face some limits when it comes to the number of digital participants you want to include in a discussion or other group activity in your event’s programming, but not if you invest in the proper bandwidth for your event. Otherwise, there’s “virtually” no limit to the number of people you can reach!
They’re Less Vulnerable To Emergencies
Virtual events have risen out of a necessity during the era of COVID-19, but even in a post-pandemic world, virtual events will be more secure and less prone to cancellation than live events. Whereas you might have to cancel an event due to weather, or significantly shake up the programming of a live event if a planned guest or speaker is late or falls ill, with virtual events, you can respond more nimbly to unexpected challenges.
They’re Here To Stay
Most importantly, virtual events are the way of the future. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down live events worldwide, workforces were already starting to shift towards a more mobile, digital-first approach to business. While nothing replaces genuine human interaction only experienced when we gather together, virtual events provide fewer barriers to entry and greater access. Whether location or travel is an issue, or the cost to attend in person is not financially feasible for some, virtual events allow for more eyeballs and engagement with your content and message.

Keys For A Successful Virtual Event
There are certain elements to event production that are just as important for virtual events as they are for live, in-person gatherings, such as quality programming, dynamic guests, and a thematic focus to the event. There are certain factors, though, that are also essential when planning a virtual event, including:
Presentation value is everything when it comes to the perceived quality of a virtual event, and that starts with lighting. You’ll want to consult with a lighting professional to ensure everyone that is going to be well-lit with a lighting scheme that lights them up without washing out their facial features. You'll also want to consider matching the lighting tone to the tone you want to set at your event. For example, you might use warm lighting for an event that includes a group discussion or Q&A with speakers to cast them in a more inviting light to draw more interest from attendees.
In addition to lighting, you may also want to seek the expertise of an experienced videographer. They’ll be able to advise you not only on proper camera framing for the various guests and speakers at your event, but also on set dressing strategies you can use to dress up your background to emphasize the theme of your event. For instance, many professional speakers will position themselves in front of neatly kept bookcases when on-camera in order to heighten their appearance of authority on their subject matter.
Reliable Streaming Technology and Technical Direction
Sometimes Zoom alone just won’t cut it. If you’re planning a virtual event with multiple speakers, give The Panacea Collective a call! We can help ensure you have the right setup to broadcast your virtual event to all of your intended audiences, as well as the technical direction and editing to level up the production value.
Invest a little more in the aesthetic of your digital experience. Really curate the space you have on camera — get some high quality decor and furniture rentals and trick out the space or space(s) you plan to have on camera! The trick is to give viewers the appearance of a high-value production and posh event space, when really, your investment is limited to just the space they see on-screen. Set dressing is your opportunity to emphasize the theme of your event visually!
