If you have considered organizing a digital event, you may have bumped into a dilemma – how to make it exciting for your audience?

Understandably, you may be worried that people won’t be receptive to an online environment. However, we assure you that a virtual meeting offers you many possibilities to engage the participants.  In this case, if you want to go for something special, then you should consider trying out some of the following virtual event ideas.

1. Virtual Events Work Well with Mentalism

Have you considered hiring a mentalist for your next event? Mentalism is interesting, unusual, and mysterious. Your guests will surely enjoy being part of something so left-field.

It works well in a virtual meeting; it is highly interactive, and it will have your guests engaged throughout the entire event.

What makes mentalism one of the best virtual event ideas is that it gets everyone in on the action. The mentalist can work with an individual volunteer from the lobby or take an entire group.

By the end of the show, everyone will have equally taken part in the experience. It will feel that much rewarding when people know that they’ve collectively been part of something.

Considered one of the top mentalists in the world, Kevin Viner has appeared on Penn and Teller: Fool Us, Masters of Illusion, Don’t Blink, commercials for T-Mobile and Now You See Me 2, as well as on the PBS documentary Johnny Carson: King of Late Night. As a corporate entertainer, Kevin has engaged top-level management with Google, Intel, Cisco, Starbucks, and many more.

2. A Touch of Magic

When you combine the medium of a virtual meeting with the art of magic, the result is something truly unique, which will surely mystify the audience and capture their attention for long periods of time.

Audiences will be thrilled to see something which will take them by surprise, and a virtual magic act has the advantage of being astonishing and ‘out of the box.’  People in the lobby will be left speechless, and their reactions of astonishment can be seen on the webcam feed – this is part of the charm of virtual magic.

If you want to end your event with a bang, then you should consider having a magic act as the finale. It will add this air of grandiosity and refinement, which people will undoubtedly be keen to remember for a long time to come.

No stranger to creating magical moments on screen, Seidman’s many television appearances include a starring role in the Netflix Original Series, Brainchild, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and the Travel Channel. His virtual performance is custom-designed for your event and packed with never-before-seen illusions that take place through your viewers’ screens.

3. Virtual Game Show

One of the best virtual event ideas for you to try is a virtual game show. It is a fun way to get your audience pumped up during the event, boosting their morale and involvement.

What’s interesting about the game show is that it offers you much space for creativity. Depending on what you want to get out of the event, the game show format allows you to develop team-building activities.

Whether you’re going for something simple, straightforward, or intricate and mind-bending, there are always many possible games to choose from.

For example, quizzes are for the brainy types, while talent shows encourage more inventiveness and imagination – both of these games are a popular choice among large groups.

This kind of game shows can easily be adapted to a virtual environment since they require little to no props and, instead, a lot of audience interactiveness.

4. Virtual Comedy Show

Virtual comedy shows are a step up in terms of entertainment. By merging technology with a healthy dose of comedy, you get a unique live streamed experience explicitly tailored for the audience.

Comedy doesn’t need any hocus pocus; it’s straightforward fun, directly told by the entertainer to the audience.  When you’re tuning in to a virtual comedy show, you won’t feel like a spectator at a lecture.

Quite the contrary, at comedy shows, people are asked questions. In a virtual environment, the atmosphere is more up close since everyone gets to see each other, giving the comedian ample material to work with.  It’s this level of interactivity that makes virtual comedy a one of a kind experience.

Improv legends and Whose Line is it Anyway? veterans Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood unleash a wild, comedic ride with Stream of Consciousness, an all-new LIVE improv show via Zoom, where you are in the driver’s seat!
