Christopher Schmitt has produced online events (along with on-site events) for close to a decade.
When running events, I aim to bridge the digital distances to create engaging experiences for speakers to shine, audiences to learn, and sponsors to return.
In short, I loved online event production before it was necessary.
Passionate About Online Events permalink
Online events are:
- Ecological and sustainable. Ultimately, fewer resources are used to produce events online.
- Inclusive. Attendees who are unable to travel—because of physical, financial, or schedule constraints—can participate in online events and network with like-minded attendees.
- Convenient. No travel, no hotel reservations, no worries about meal planning for hundreds of attendees—organizers and attendees are free to focus on the content, not the hassle.
And now they are...
- A Safe Alternative. Everyone can participate in a shared experience while still under quarantine.
