Making the switch – How to transition from in-person to online events

Over night the world went digital. Thousands of events worldwide were cancelled or postponed. However, just because we are all at home it doesn’t mean we should stop growing, innovating or experiencing all the benefits in-person events bring. Simply meet your audience online. Join Blackbaud’s residence event marketing experts to learn first-hand how to successfully pivot your event marketing strategy to an online stage. During this session we will review tips and tricks for a successful webcast audience interaction, negotiation tips for live event cancellations, and all the necessary considerations when making this transition to digital.
