Virtual events have been filling the TRG calendar with three back to back events in September and more in October. There are many ways to produce a virtual event and TRG customizes them each to best meet our client’s needs.
MPI recently shared an article discussing some of the issues of returning to live events. The biggest concern was human nature. After many months of separation, we want to connect, we want to shake hands and share hugs. This will be the initial challenge facing event professionals. TRG is here to help navigate your challenges and help you create a plan for returning to live events.
Until in-person events and gatherings resume, presenters that are accustomed to presenting in front of a live audience may be asked to lead a virtual session. Here are some audio-visual tips to help your presenters be successful:
As the calendar turned to the third quarter of 2020, Landmark Health focused their attention on future company goals. The executives knew that a planning meeting was needed in order to communicate their initiatives and set goals but that meeting in person would not be an option. Landmark Health approached TRG as their trusted production partner to help create their first Virtual Summer Planning Meeting.
TRG friend and colleague, Joddie Walker, MSc., RP, CTTS, CTP-Clinical D.A.A.E.T.S., Registered Psychotherapist, will be a presenter for the annual Crimes Against Children Conference this year. As with most every conference happening in 2020, the Crimes Against Children Conference will be a virtual event. Joddie’s presentation tells the inspiring story of dedicated professionals’ persistent work to bring a perpetrator to justice.
Meeting Professionals International (MPI) recently sponsored a three-hour summit to discuss what the “new normal” in the live events industry will look like and how to plan for recovery post-COVID19. The webinar featured speaker Mike Walsh (CEO & Futurist, Tomorrow) as well as a panel of industry professionals.
Over the last few months, we have all experienced virtual meetings and gatherings in various forms and have a good understanding of what they look like and how they work. Beyond the fully virtual meeting, there are more options available to expand the reach and further engage with attendees. Hybrid Virtual Meetings offer many ways to reach your audience, engage in live events, and reach around the globe all in one event.
As our world struggles to establish the new normal for meeting and events TRG is focused on alternative options to bring your company’s important messages and content to your teams.
2020 started off with a very busy calendar of events, taking our teammates and gear back and forth across the country. In preparation for our anticipated meeting season, TRG made significant investments in equipment and tools. In this quiet time, TRG is making good use of our time continuing our technical education and organizing gear and tools. Here are a few of the things we are working on:
TRG is making the most of this time before jumping back into our “old normal” of onsite meetings. We have several events scheduled for the end of August through the remainder of the year that we are hopeful will remain on track as our world recovers from the pandemic. In addition to focusing on the pre-production logistics for our upcoming events, we are using this opportunity to take advantage of the numerous online educational opportunities available.
