Our participants and fundraisers have lived through one of the most rapid evolutions of customer experiences and that has changed the way they expect to interact in the world. As we return to live events in 2021 and beyond, the incredible influx of technologies designed to provide enhanced virtual experiences is here to stay. How, though, can nonprofit event experts provide both an in-person event and a joint virtual experience? Is that the new definition of hybrid?

The goal of this session is to provide attendees with a case study of a real event from this year that brings together smart event planning, innovative technology, and a dozen nonprofit organizations.

Key Takeaways:

  • Feel confident in examining their event plans and adjusting to feel safe on event.
  • Understand how great tech can enhance the fundraiser experience, even if they’re participating virtually.
  • See how collaborative event models may provide a good solution to revenue gaps as their owned event series take time to ramp back up.
