The Ultimate Guide to Virtual Entertainment in Online Meetings

On-Demand Webinar

As the meetings industry shifts its focus to finding digital alternatives to in-person meetings, keeping virtual attendees engaged has become a hot topic. It’s a challenge to engage your audience when it comes to seemingly endless meetings that are heavy on information but light on unique and engaging content. One way to capture attendees’ attention and keep them glued is by adding an entertainment component to your online meetings and conferences. The key is finding entertainment that encourages attendees to network and connect in a non-academic environment. Entertainment can be seen very much like ice-breakers providing attendees a forum to find commonalities in a casual environment.

Join us as we discuss out-of-the-box entertainment options that can be easily implemented in your next virtual conference or meeting. Our panelists are excited to share:

  • Top tips to select the appropriate virtual entertainer
  • What will you need to accommodate third-party vendors
  • Best ways to encourage participation

Who should attend:

  • Meeting and Conference Planners
  • Education Directors, Managers, and Coordinators
