Hi, I’m Peter, the co-founder of SponsorMyEvent and the owner of ConferenceFilms.eu
The coronavirus is spreading fast and is becoming a real threat for event organizers. We see that more and more conferences and workshops are either being canceled entirely or have to face substantial no-shows. This is developing into a serious problem for the organizers.I will try to provide some ideas and workarounds organizers can use to save their events.
We are often asked how to live-stream a conference. Let me give you an overview of the possibilities and limitations:
To a certain extend you might be able to handle the live-stream yourself, but overall I would recommend teaming-up with specialists such as ConferenceFilms.eu to make sure your live-stream will exceed your attendees’ expectations. This is especially true for longer conferences where you might need to stream 3 or more hours of content and switch between various sources such as cameras, powerpoints and eventually speakers connected over conference systems.
After all, you should as well take into account the great opportunity to reduce your conference’s carbon footprint by using streaming-technologies. This benefit should not be neglected also when hopefully the Corona-virus has loosened its grip again.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you need any information, I’m more than happy to help to let your conference take place as planned and to make it a success.
