Virtual events seem to be the norm in 2020, as they offer people the chance to stay safe and healthy, while at the same time allowing them to spend their time in an entertaining way.

To maximize the potential of a virtual program, you will need a professional to help moderate it.

And in this following article, we will present you with 3 main reasons why your virtual event needs a virtual meeting moderator.

3 Reasons Why A Virtual Event Needs A Virtual Meeting Moderator

1. Your Virtual Event Is Left in Good Hands

It cannot be denied that the internet is very unpredictable, and in the case of a virtual event, there is always the risk of something not going according to plan.

This can lead to a lot of unpleasant experiences for the viewer and can directly affect the event’s retention rate.

When it comes to situations like these, a virtual moderator is a professional who knows how to soften the blow dealt by many uncomfortable occurrences and even turn things around.

A virtual meeting moderator with decades of on-camera and on-stage experience has dealt with unpleasantries before and knows how to act accordingly.

2. Keeps the Audience Engaged

Despite the fact they are not physically present at the event, it can be argued that virtual audiences are more challenging to deal with than actual live audiences.

The virtual event needs to be engaging so that they feel they’re always a part of it and not left out. While some viewers tend to be more active, there is the silent majority, which is watching.

With the help of a virtual meeting moderator, you can make the event’s experience more palatable for all viewers and assure they won’t click away.

The virtual moderator can bring up all kinds of on-stream activities in which the viewers can participate or can even interact with them directly, by asking questions or having the audience cast votes on what they would like to see next.

3. Can Transmit Your Company’s Message

Since the viewer base is at home, it’s understandable that virtual events are more isolating and may lead to a disconnect between the event’s experience and the viewer.

Because of this, event organizers have a more challenging time reaching out to the audience or communicating a message to them. Sure, you can prompt messages during the stream, or you can have ad breaks, but that doesn’t assure the viewers will be interested to see them.

In the case of ads, they might disenfranchise some of the viewers and may hurt the viewer count.

A good moderator knows how to package your company’s message in a way it feels more digestible so that it doesn’t take away from the event’s experience.
