October 26, 2020

Online events have come into their own this year. All types of corporate digital events, from trade shows to holiday parties, are being organized worldwide, and it’s no surprise why, given the significant benefits they provide.

If you want your event to stand out, you need to offer attendees an engaging, interactive experience. And while interactivity is often regarded as one of the unicorns of digital events, it is something that you can achieve.

Get started – and inspired – with these interactive virtual event ideas worth trying.

Interactive Virtual Event Ideas

#1. Live Streaming Virtual Cooking

We all miss being able to go out, eat at our favorite restaurants, and enjoy having a professional chef take care of our taste buds.

So, why not treat your guests to a deliciously-unique, unforgettable culinary experience by booking a renowned chef for your online event?

Your audience will get to learn how to make a restaurant-quality meal on their own and cook alongside a professional chef. Not only that, but they will also get to interact with a celebrity chef personally and ask questions.  All of which will contribute to a more interactive event.

Perfect for: holiday parties, team building activities, award ceremonies, client/employee virtual appreciation events.

#2. Interview a Top Keynote Speaker

If you’re looking for interactive virtual event ideas that are not only engaging but also informative, then you can’t go wrong with booking an expert speaker.

This way, you give guests the chance to hear directly from industry experts and allow them to broaden their understanding of topics that are important to them right now.

To make your interview more interactive, be sure to include a Q&A session at the end, where you allow guests to ask their questions.

You could also use polling technology to create single choice or multiple choice polling questions and survey attendees (many of today’s most popular online meeting software, including Zoom, provide this technology).  This will help create more opportunities for engagement.

Perfect for: online conferences and meetings, team building events, online workshops, webinars, virtual onboarding fair.

# 3. Incorporate Fun Activities

One of the secrets to planning an interactive online gathering is to include fun, dynamic activities that will make remote attendees feel more included in the event.

For example, there are many different types of games that work well in a digital context.

Here are a few suggestions to consider:

  • Virtual Trivia Game
  • Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
  • Virtual Bingo
  • Virtual Scavenger Hunt
  • Virtual Horse Racing

A little friendly competition will liven up your event in no time.  Plus, all of these games will help boost your remote guests’ morale while also encouraging them to work in teams and make them feel more connected to each other.

Pick a virtual version of your favorite game, and interactivity will no longer be something to worry about at your event.

Perfect for: holiday parties, team building activities, employee/client appreciation events.
