Our objective was to create a glitzy, yet cosy TV chat show, to deliver a virtual awards show. Our approach to designing and operating this event was vastly different to our usual approach to a live event – where we had to take into consideration and prioritise many different factors since the Covid-19 restrictions have been in place.
Award Nominees joined remotely within a Zoom call, and their call was promoted to fill the screen if they won an award. The use of pre-recorded musical sections, celebrity talking heads and other fun pre-recorded VT’s were pivotal in keeping the event interesting for the viewers. The client also ran a variety of competitions on social media which provided additional content to deliver to the audience during
The biggest positive of running an event virtually, is being able to offer the experience to a limitless number of delegates. The delegate experience is of course different to a live in-person event, however by offering a variety of interactive elements, you can still create an engaging event, virtually.
