When it comes to discussing events, the spotlight many times goes to annual conferences, association meetings, conferences, and other large-scale events that indeed deserve much attention, careful planning, and strategy to get executed well and provide a memorable experience for attendees, may that be in-person or online.
In today’s post, found at this link here, I’d like to turn the attention to a different type of hybrid event, the fundraising gala type that we all get excited about attending when it’s connected to an organization that pulls the strings of our hearts.
A creative production professional is your number one ally when it comes to planning, hosting, and executing a high-quality hybrid event that fundraises at the highest level, brings broadcast quality to the table, trains the speakers for both in-person and virtual, keeps both audiences engaged, and much more. Here are some production support roles to keep in mind:
Non-technical production support roles: Registration Support, Back-End Bidding Auction Platform Support, Data Support, Website Tech Support, Moderators & Chat Cheerleaders, Script Advancer Support, Virtual Producer, Content Support, Marketing.
Technical Production Support Roles: Technical Event Producer, Video Director, Graphics Tech, Sound Engineer for In-person, and Sound Tech for virtual, Video switcher, Lighting Tech, Media/Content Support, Virtual Producer, Platform Support.
If you have any questions about hybrid – not just production, strategy, technology, scripting, run of shows, etc – please reach out.
