How to Take Your Virtual Event to the Next Level (Pt. I)

We have all likely become a bit more aquatinted with virtual events in the last few months. Maybe you attended a live yoga class via Instagram, or learned something new on a webinar; or maybe you connected your friends and family to host an online milestone birthday party. Whatever your experience may, or may not be with virtual events, chances are they are here to stay for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, let’s introduce you to some qualified help for virtual events.

You can host a fun themed party via Zoom in the comfort of your own home, but why not take it a step further?

You can throw an amazing event complete with party favors, live DJ requests, multiple hosts (even if they are in different locations), performances from special guests, and so many other details that come with traditional events, while still allowing guests to attend from the safety of their own home. We know that with the help of these qualified vendors, your next hybrid event will exceed all expectations.

To have an engaging virtual event you must hire adequate audiovisual support.

Luckily for you, we have two extremely qualified candidates to recommend in that department.

Enhanced Lighting & Audiovisual is an experienced company we’ve had the pleasure to work with in a variety of capacities over the years. They offer everything you need in custom event lighting and audiovisual and have a huge indoor and outdoor LED projection screen. Based out of San Francisco, they specialize in bringing lighting as a design element to every event they are part of serving next level function and style. With clients from The Dali Lama to The San Francisco 49ers, it is clear they are extremely qualified to handle all lighting and audiovisual needs.

JL Imagination is an award winning Bay Area based AV production company that we’ve had the pleasure to work with in a variety of capacities over the years. They have all the professional equipment, and know how to create onsite solutions for audio, video, and lighting. We have seen first hand just how much value they add to a hybrid event, offering so much guidance and support from planning to set up, through to the very end of the night. They are now also offering monthly music series you won’t want to miss! Check out the upcoming August series here.

Qualified help with Video Webcasting for virtual events

Trust us, having a professional crew come in to handle your video needs so you can enjoy the event hands free, without any concern for tech issues is worth it.

Another option for having a hybrid event is The Newlywd App. This app provides a safe and easy streaming service to share your wedding day and other important milestones with guests who may be unable to travel or attend. With features like a countdown, custom preview options, and personalized information about your event, this will allow guests to get excited and attend from the comfort of their own home.

We know the stress of planning a virtual or hybrid event can feel overwhelming, especially if it’s something you’ve never done before. Please remember, qualified help for virtual events is available – we are here for you, as are trusted vendors such as Enhanced Lighting & Audiovisual and JL Imagination.
