Virtual Events Explained

Sophie Waldron
09 Sep 2020

A webinar is a closed broadcast Speaker session, which requires delegates to register, via a designated link, there is no public access to the content as it is only available to registered ‘event’ [webinar] delegates. A webinar is usually not recorded.

A live stream is a broadcast of content across open channels, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, website or elsewhere in the public domain.

A virtual roundtable is a private platform moderated by a speaker/business expert. This session provides the opportunity to knowledge-share with business leaders surrounding priorities, challenges and opportunities being faced in the current climate.

A workshop is an interactive session ranging from a one-on-one session to a group with an infinite number of people, facilitated by an expert in their field. A workshop will provide opportunities to practice applying the concepts learnt and may include activities, group discussions and exercises.

A hybrid event is a conference, seminar, workshop or other event that combines a "live" in-person event with a "virtual" online component.

A pre-recorded keynote is a presentation professionally recorded prior to the live or virtual event. The speaker will often still attend online for a live Q&A session with the audience. The benefits of a pre-recorded keynote is that it safeguards technical difficulties during a virtual conference and allows you to have speakers from around the country or the globe regardless of border or travel restrictions. P.S – this is often a great way to save on travel costs!

Check out the video below with Ian Taylor, one of New Zealand's foremost technology innovators, as he shares his story about having to embrace virtual events at a whole new level.
