Virtual Host & Emcee
Everyone in the meetings and events industry is talking about how to create impactful virtual experiences right now, and for good reason. While no one knows when in-person live events will be back in full swing, we do know this: virtual meetings are happening now, virtual meetings will be happening for the foreseeable future, and virtual meetings might well continue being a viable alternative option to in-person meetings for the long-term. So… LET’S GO VIRTUAL 🙂
Why You Need A Virtual Host
A traditional in-person meeting presents challenges in bringing people together from all over the country or even the world to connect with each other, to network, to learn, to engage. Now think about how much MORE difficult those challenges will no doubt surely be for a virtual meeting. It’s going to be more difficult to get and keep attendees’ attention. It’s going to be more difficult to get attendees to engage with presenters. It’s going to be more difficult to get attendees to engage with each other. Bottom line: it’s going to be more difficult to pull all the different event elements together to create a cohesive conference experience that is unique, engaging, and impactful.
Now think about what a good host does. A good host brings attendees together, engages the audience, keeps the energy up, segues from one presenter to the next, fills in the gaps, adds insights, levity, value. There’s an argument to be made that a Virtual Host is even more important to a Virtual Meeting, than a Live Host is to a Live Meeting because the virtual format makes all of these duties that much more important. The virtual format heightens the role of a Conference Host. An experienced, confident, professional Emcee goes from being a nice add-on feature to your conference, to being ESSENTIAL to the success of your meeting.
