Times have certainly changed for in-person events over the past few months. The online world has taken over as in-person events have come to a halt. We are adjusting to the times and rethinking how we do things, which is why we are going to show you how to host your own virtual event.
1. Plan Your Virtual Event
The first step is to plan exactly what type of online event you will be hosting. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
