What are Virtual Conferences?

Virtual conferences, the word itself is self-explanatory, they are events which are hosted on a web-based solution and not on a physical venue.

These Virtual events allow event everyone involved like the organizers, speakers, attendees, and sponsors to associate remotely through a virtual environment. While webinar and virtual conferencing options and ways have been around for a while, imaginative approaches and devices are rapidly developing to more closely adjust this in-person event goal gap to the virtual event platforms.

Conference Live Streaming

Dreamcast, being in this business for 10+ years has been rapidly developing and adding to the skill bag of VE as we call it today. We have created an engaging virtual conference platform that enables the virtual content that featured & showcases holistic elements of a traditional in-person event. To name some, one can have live speakers, panellists, virtual conference rooms, and live product demos along with live chats & quick networking rooms too. We’ve come to notice the unique advantages of different event formats, virtual or hybrid events.

A very important part of Virtual Events is hosting a conference virtually.

A Conference is typically a meeting of people who "confer" about a particular topic or an agenda. Conferences generally have several rooms to conduct the meeting like conference rooms, workshop, exhibitions, showcase, lounges and breakout rooms Conference call, & features of networking wherein one can make an audio-video call via VR video conferencing with more than two participants at the same time, exchange business cards, have live chats too.

Why Do You Need Virtual Conference Platform or Solutions?

Although nothing can come close to in-person strength, handshakes & networking.

In the advent of the 2020 global coronavirus pandemic, most event professionals have moved from leading activities to addressing a global crisis. This involves making contingency plans to protect their attendees, sponsors, consumers and teams' health and safety, seeking new ways to repurpose event material and taking bold steps to see what the next event period will look like.

Dreamcast predicts event marketers are leaning towards virtual conferences & its platforms and softwares in the near future as part of a larger hybrid event strategy. It incorporates interactions both in-person and interactive. While virtual events aren't recent, in the future we see signs that they will become more popular and complementary for in-person events

5 Virtual Event Types

Before you launch your first virtual event, you're probably wondering what kind of virtual experience you want for an event attendant. Digital experiences have developed outside the traditional conference model. We've included the top five types of events that organisers use to communicate, engage participants and amplify the voices of their brands.

1. Roundtables

Roundtables are a perfect place for providing a select group of participants with unique in-person experiences. Roundtables can operate in a virtual environment similarly, enabling hosts to curate their list of attendees and provide exclusive content for a small or large number of attendees.

Consider splitting the event into smaller groups of 10-15 participants with a moderator in each breakout room to allow for a more customised virtual experience when you are looking to create a social roundtable.

2. Keynotes

Keynotes set the tone for large conferences and summits incorporating storytelling, perspectives and future forecasts that can strengthen the central theme and message of your event. Bringing a keynote address into the virtual environment is a perfect way to reinforce the message from the speakers and make it reach a wider audience.

To set the stage for the keynote content, We can create an intro clip showing photos, graphics, and logos. The added Introductory image gives a more professional feeling to the virtual experience.

3. Conference

Conferences are a great way to put together consumers, customers and business industry experts to celebrate and learn. Virtualizing your user conference or annual meeting can not only help you reach a wider audience wherever they are, it also provides your team with new ways of engaging and interacting with the participants.

With features such as live chat, Q&A, and networking capabilities, break the passive attendee experience and provide interactive opportunities before, during, and after events.

Introducing designated networking breaks also allowed participants to take a breather to chat, take polls and network with other attendees between longer sessions.

4. Employee Appreciation Event

Virtualizing an internal conference can be an exciting and affordable way to involve your organisation in a larger team-building experience, such as learning fun activities, or even meditation! A key component to virtualize appreciation of employees if individuals bring a more human element to them. Creating quizzes in a unique & fun style during a virtual happy hour can keep everyone engaged and cause lots of laughs.

But just as introducing new virtual events for outside audiences is important, keeping things fresh for your internal audiences is also important.

Seeing others working in their homes – often with a little support from family members – offered a way to communicate with the team digitally in a way that was quite different from the usual virtual happy hour.

5. Networking Event

Live panel discussions on a relevant industry-specific subject can be a beneficial way to put together professionals during a social distancing time at a virtual reality event. A live panel of two or three leading thinkers and a moderator can be a perfect way to recreate the same after-work networking activities usually happening during the work week.

During the talk, having a second person handle a live Q&A will keep the participants engaged — bonus points to give any sponsors for your event a shout out at the start of your event.

In order to keep this experience open, Dreamcast uses a live chat to comment during the conversation, as well as the opportunity to ask questions that could be addressed live with the panellists.
