Virtual events are events that take place on Zoom, Facebook, or on any other virtual meetings or social media platform.  These events are social distanced, easier to attend from the comfort of your own home or office, and can still be meaningful if done right.  Eclipse Effect Events began creating unique virtual events during the pandemic to help create events in a time when events needed to adapt.  We've helped create over 60 virtual events including a virtual mayoral debate, a virtual auction, association officer installations, award ceremonies, political streams to news stations, virtual concerts, ground breaking events, company trainings, virtual school dance, virtual CD release party, and church services.  Today with Zoom fatigue it's important to create streams of higher quality and production to stand out from the crowd.

Benefits of Virtual Events.

  • Safety - During the current world situations with limited social gathering numbers, you can have events without sacrificing the number of attendees.
  • Save Money - Virtual events save companies money by saving on venue costs, flights, hotel stays, meals, etc.
  • Convenience - People can attended from their home, office, the beach or anywhere there is internet service.
  • Save Time - Travel to and from the event location takes time.  Virtual events eliminates this travel time.
  • Stream From Almost Anywhere - We can hold the virtual event stream from practically anywhere there is adequate internet service speed.
  • Counters Loneliness - During the pandemic loneliness was one of the top mental health problems in the world.  Having a virtual event to help people connect socially to a certain degree helps counter this problem that many people were facing.

Hybrid Events

What are hybrid events: As we get back to in person events, hybrid events will become extremely useful.  Hybrid events are events that are in person/virtual meeting.  This means a certain number of people will be in person at your event location and the rest of the attendees will be on your virtual meeting platform.  Attendees on your virtual meeting can interact with the attendees in person and visa versa.  The same goes for the presenter.  A presenter on your virtual meeting can take questions from people on your virtual meeting or in person at your event location.  A presenter in person at your event location can take questions from attendees on your virtual meeting or in person at your in person event location.  This eliminates the barriers of communication. 
Benefits of hybrid events: The benefits of hybrid events are that you can save money by not having to fly people over for company meetings, putting them hotels, and paying for their meals.  Hybrid events also helps eliminate the limit of people that can attend your event.  Event venues have a limited amount of attendees they can hold.  Hybrid events helps eliminate that limit.  Hybrid events also saves time.  It can take a lot of time to travel to and from your event location.  Especially when attendees have to catch an airplane to attend your event.  With hybrid events, attendees can just hop on the virtual event platform from their office or home saving on travel time.
