Many event organisers are having to adapt and are turning their attention to the prospect of virtual event delivery. This is a chance to hear from three who have already successfully done so in recent months, finding out about how they chose which digital platform to use, the challenges they faced, the actions they took to address these and how they managed to navigate through a very different operating environment.
Hear from Ben Avison, Editorial and Event Director at Host City and Cavendish Group, who will be chairing the webinar and providing insight into the virtual Host City conference delivered in December. He will be joined by Caitlin McNaughton, Communications and Partnerships Manager for Melbourne Fringe who delivered their online festival in November and Lesley Shaw, Producer at Celtic Connections who delivered their digital-first festival in January as they each share their experience and learnings gained from the successful online staging of their recent events.
The webinar will tackle a range of issues from functionality and look and feel, to rights handling, international distribution issues and monetisation. There will be an opportunity for participants to submit questions in advance and on the day; if you would like to submit questions in advance, please submit these when prompted during the webinar registration process or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
