“We want to do a virtual event or a webcast to augment our trade show plans. And we can use part of the trade show budget. Can you help?”
“Yes, great idea!” I replied.
When I looked at the calendar the other day I realized we’d hosted over 37 webinars / online events so far this year… And yes, have we learned a lot! I wanted to share some behind the scenes from 3 recent online events / virtual events we’ve hosted that ranged from:
