Event Ideas for your Next Virtual Conference This Summer

We’re well into 2021 and have established that virtual events are here to stay. Event organisers are looking for ways to make the experience more fun and engaging. Event ideas for your next virtual conference this summer can help you do just that. With so many different event ideas out there, it’s easy to find something that will fit your needs. 

Virtual conferences are a great way to take your business to the next level and connect with others in your industry. But what do you do if you’re not sure how? This blog post is all about giving you some event ideas for your virtual conference this summer.

1. Hosting a Virtual Conference Meeting

Communities are all about in-person meetings and connections. However, during these times, it can be hard to attend those physical gatherings without endangering your safety. Switching towards virtual ones is the answer for many people who want to stay connected with their communities but cannot make these old school in-person interactions happen due to distance constraints. Also, virtual events allow attendees to participate in polls and ask questions during live webinars. It can also help retain the benefits of group activities without any legal or health-related issues by staying virtual.

2. Virtual Summer Class

If you’re looking at making your event more fun, though, and learning new skills or overcoming anxiety is something you are interested in doing, then an online summer class might be for you. These classes help students fulfill their goals as well as those who have trouble speaking out loud due to fear or shyness.

An interactive summer class that can be taken online is also a great option for those who are looking to expand their knowledge and develop skills in an engaging environment. By actively participating, you will not only learn about new topics but also have the opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals from all over the world.

3. Learn New Skills Online

How about a little something to cheer everyone up? Give your meeting attendees the opportunity to learn how with online tutorials. You can let them know ahead of time so they have an edge, or you could bring it up during the session and see who takes advantage! It will give many people a chance for interaction too, especially if they have shared interests. 

You can learn new and valuable skills online, like how to cook an Indian dish or identify constellations. In order for this workshop to be successful and not just feel like work, make it something enjoyable that people will want to do on their own time as well so they are prepared when the next opportunity comes up in person or virtually.

4. Virtual Game Night

Virtual games can be a new and engaging way to spice up your event. If you’d like something fun that involves teams, there are plenty of virtual game platforms available for creating custom events. This is the perfect solution if attendees need some entertainment during long online conferences or other types of lengthy presentations. Games can also help to foster teamwork and culture within organisations. 

5. Create a Virtual Book Club

Imagine the possibilities of a virtual book reading session! If you have some readers on your team, why not try it out? Give those that are avid readers an opportunity to indulge in what they love best. This activity is fun and engaging, and could also create great networking opportunities among colleagues with similar reading tastes and interests. 

6. Host a Virtual Conference Q&A Session

By collaborating with guest experts and bringing them to your event, you can create a truly memorable experience for your audience. Poll attendees to find out what they’re interested in learning, upvote the most popular questions and have your panel of guest speakers answer these pressing questions. This also gives the speaker an opportunity to connect one-on-one and network with a wide audience at the virtual event.

7. Organize Online Workouts

It’s not always easy to get started with a new hobby. Sometimes you’re left feeling alone and isolated, without any real feedback or support. With online workouts, teams are able to see each other in a new light like never before. After all, the team that works out together, stays together.

8. A Virtual Movie Marathon

Virtual Movie Marathons can be a great way to create that sense of closeness and belonging among your employees, teams, and colleagues. Watch the same movie together to build a sense of inclusion among them which in turn will lead to increased productivity and better decision-making skills when it comes time for meetings afterward.
