So you should host a webinar or event? The role of host is not easy and requires a lot of preparation. One of the most important components of a successful digital broadcast is the interaction and that the event participants feel involved. If you do interaction correctly, your event will be both memorable and stand out from the majority of all events held around the world.
To engage participants important to prepare properly with questions, polls and quizzes. A good event is arranged with interaction in mind throughout the process. From content planning, to schedule and implementation. In this way, even a pre-recorded webinar can be made interactive, with live chat moderators, pre-planned polls and content designed with engagement in focus.
So we agree that interaction is important throughout the preparation of the event. For you as an event planner or event organizer, it is therefore important to come up with creative suggestions and ideas on good issues that engage the audience. Here, the size of the event is important, as the size of the event affects how the participants are supposed to answer the questions.
If you have a smaller meeting, it may be that each person introduces themselves with video in the meeting. If you are instead a couple of hundred people or thousands of participants, it is important to focus on questions with short quantitative answers - which can easily engage the audience and be summarized clearly in the broadcast. An important aspect is to really give feedback on the results and the answers that come in; it contributes to the live feeling and makes the event fun and lively!
