Virtual Events Require Platform, People, and Production. Let’s Talk Production.

November 12, 2020 Corporate Blog

It’s never a bad idea to get back to basics. With the virtual and hybrid event trend showing no signs of slowing down, we wanted to take a step back and think about what we actually mean when we say “production,” and how that fits into the virtual space.

At its core, production defines how your event looks, sounds, and feels. That could include graphics, video, presenters, music, show flow, and so much more. We’ve all seen events, both live and virtual, where just one of these pieces has been even slightly off track and ruined the whole experience.

That’s where a technology solutions provider, like our team at AV Concepts, comes in. For something like an event with so many moving pieces, it is essential to have professionals keep each detail on track from the very beginning to show day and beyond. There are lead times to get audio/visual equipment out to your presenters, not to mention the dozens of equipment pieces out there to choose from. There are design considerations, where you need to decide what your video and graphics are going to look like and who is going to build them. During the event someone must be calling the show, jumping seamlessly between camera angles, tracking cues, and changing graphics. Finally, there is the technical side that requires not just correct setup but also constant supervision and live tech support during the event to make sure nothing goes wrong. And if it does go wrong, you need an agile team and a backup plan.

All of the above areas are exactly where AV Concepts can help. Providing all the equipment, services, and expertise that is behind the scenes to pull off a successful, engaging event. Even if you’ve already selected a digital platform (Zoom, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) for your virtual or hybrid event, there are a lot more blanks to fill in. Having your platform is like booking the venue; you have the space for an event, so now what do you put in there to bring it to life?

Our team is here to help you bring it to life. With an endless sea of digital platforms to choose from, it can be overwhelming to simply pick one, let alone know what to do from there. Our solutions experts provide guidance every step of the way to make planning and implementation as easy as possible. The team behind the platform is what makes or breaks an event, which is why it’s more important than ever to start thinking about it early and often.
