The COVID-19 pandemic and the developing situation across the globe call for a focused, united approach. Keeping in mind the safety and best interests of your event attendees, we’re sure you took the best decision of canceling or postponing your event at the right time. However, if you’re one of those who believe in social distancing but not social isolation, we have some good news for you. If you’ve been following artists, musicians, and performers, you must’ve noticed how smartly they’ve been using LIVE stream to bring people together. 

As an event presenter, here’s how you can make the best of this situation and still bring people together in the comfort of their homes. 

1. Test Run Your Digital Platforms Before Going Live

Many event presenters might not be an expert at hosting their events on a social media platform or other video streaming apps. This is a good time to get a hang of it before making it a habit of hosting events online. Start off by notifying your followers by going live to announce your plan of hosting events online regularly. This will also create a synergy between you and your guests with live feedback and comments. 

2. Go LIVE

Make the best use of your social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram with the help of your event marketing team. With Facebook and Instagram LIVE stream, it’s become easier for artists and performers to stay connected with their audience even in these isolated times. As an event presenter, you go virtual by hosting your events online. Everything from a live music set, conferences, school seminars, and stand up gigs can be done through live streaming. 

3. Reschedule Your Upcoming Event To On Online Event

For those using our event ticketing platform, have the option to change their live event into an online event. You might have loose out on some on-ground event investments that you might’ve made but going online with your events will make your guests feel connected to it even without being present at the venue.
