What’s Next in Digital Conferences?

The COVID-inspired rush to digital has created both tremendous challenges and awesome opportunities. For those putting on conferences and events, the need to re-imagine and re-invent our ways of being and working, to adjust our perspective and what matters has been particularly challenging.

As we are looking toward the end of this pandemic, we have an opportunity to rebuild better: There are some things digital excels at, that are worth retaining; and we can improve the in-person conference experience, too.

In this 2-part Masterclass, we will share the latest learnings from Future Perfect, a Digital Strategy Fund project that explored how to design and produce awesome online and blended audience conferences.

Learning outcomes

  1. Know how to design your conference for both online and in-person audiences.
  2. Know what the minimal and optimal requirements are for successful production for blended/hybrid conferences
  3. Know what the minimal and optimal requirements are for the technical set up for speakers and performers.
