Engaging your virtual audience is the key to a successful Event

By AVS India

Engaging virtual attendees is key to getting them to feel like they are part of the event, and therefore more likely to participate in it. They have become a key part of modern business culture, as they allow companies to reach out to customers and make connections that would otherwise be impossible. But as anyone who has ever hosted a virtual event knows, engagement is hard.

If you’re going to put your event online, you need to make sure that the virtual audience is as engaged as the real one. That’s why we’ve put together this list of tips for engaging your virtual attendees.

When you think about an event, it can be hard to imagine how the people who attend it could be anything less than 100% engaged.

But while we’ve all been there—watching a TV show or movie that doesn’t engage us, or being in a meeting where only half the participants are listening to the speaker—the truth is, your virtual events can be just as engaging as their real-life counterparts.

Why? Because technology allows you to reach and connect with every single person who wants to attend your event without having to physically meet them. In fact, with today's technology, virtual reality is the best way for organizations across industries to connect with their customers, employees, and vendors on a more personalized level.

That means that with the right tools and strategies in place, you can power your events from anywhere in the world—and keep them engaging for everyone involved.

Engage Attendees with Polls, Q & A Sessions, and Live Chat

Live chat is a great way to engage with your attendees and get their feedback on what they like about your event. You can also use polls to gauge public opinion about certain topics or aspects of your event—like which vendor was most popular or which type of food was guests most eager to try at an event—and then use that information to make decisions about what’s important for future events.

Make It Personal and Sensationalize Attendees

The best way to keep people engaged is by making them feel like they matter and have an impact on the outcome of an event—whether it be through personalization or gamification techniques like interactive challenges. By creating an environment where attendees feel involved in the process of planning, organizing, running, and hosting an event, they will be much more likely to want to return next time!

3. Gamify your event for that adrenalin rush

If you want to ensure your virtual event is as engaging as possible, then you need to give the people who attend it something exciting to do and challenges to overcome.

Gamification is a great way to do this. It's all about making your attendees feel like they're playing a game and encouraging them to do their best to get a better score or higher rank. We've got some tips on how you can use gamification in your event, including:

-Setting up leaderboards for different challenges and achievements

-Giving out prizes for high-scoring attendees

-Designing challenges that incorporate audience feedback

Guests can be encouraged to take part in all sorts of activities throughout the event—from completing a puzzle or solving a problem, to interacting with other people in an online chat room or playing a game on their phone (or even using a wearable device!). These types of activities are engaging for everyone; they create an atmosphere that helps everyone feel like they're part of something bigger than themselves.

Personalization is your answer to a delightful event

By personalizing the experience for each attendee based on the information that they provide about themselves at registration (e.g., name, email address), you can also ensure that each person has a unique experience at your event—and that they leave feeling like they've had an impact! This can mean more interactions between attendees who might not otherwise have met one another, which could lead to real-life connections as well as new friendships or business relationships later down the line.

Engaging virtual attendees is crucial for a variety of reasons. First, it allows you to maximize your return on investment (ROI) by offering attendees access to your product or service without having to travel or spend money on an in-person event. Second, it helps you reach an audience that may not have otherwise heard about your product or service—meaning that you're able to engage them directly and give them the chance to see for themselves how great your product is. Finally, it's a way for you to connect with people who live far away from each other but who want to connect and if they can't make it in person, they'll still be able to connect over video!
