Virtual event management
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN LIVE AND VIRTUAL
You may know how to run live event, but you are acutely aware that virtual events can be just like another Zoom call if they are not carefully managed. You’re not sure what questions to ask, never mind what the answers might be.
We see it as our job to bridge the gap between the live and virtual worlds and provide the technical glue to make it work seamlessly. We take the burden off you, managing every step from start to finish and ask the questions that you didn’t even know needed answers.
A significant part of this relates to helping your presenters. We know that many presenters find virtual events very intimidating, so we use our live experience and technical expertise to put them at ease. We provide solid practical advice like our presenters’ guide, to give them confidence and reassurance that they are in safe hands. In essence, we help them focus on what they do best – presenting to an audience!

Delivering a truly immersive event
PLANNING | We work with a wide range of onboarding platforms catering for personal preferences and company regulations/security requirements. This includes dealing with all the technical elements, creating and managing a timeline and creating a schedule for contacting presenters and coordinating recordings. Often this involves multiple time zones and occasionally different languages. And to improve the look and sound of a presentation, we can send AV packages to important contributors.
PRE-PRODUCTION | By coaching and guiding your presenters, and putting them at ease, it significantly improves their output. We remotely record their sessions and then edit them, adding name tags and background templates, graphics, inserting other content, watermarks, lower thirds. Once all content is edited and collated, it is scheduled for
LIVE STREAM | On the day everything is tested twice over and nothing is left to chance. We stream directly from our studios in Chessington and central London. Additional live presenters are brought onboard in solo or panel sessions. Our production hub provides vision and audio mixing to add name tags and lower thirds to live content, in addition to
mixing pre-recorded content.
POST EVENT | The live stream is always recorded. This allows for it to be edited with name tags and background graphics added so it can be re-uploaded for on-demand viewing. This
can be another revenue stream, or additional benefit for your sponsors.
