It's not an understatement to say that a great opening reception can set the mood for the whole event. The same can be said for an event’s closing reception. A closing reception can help set the tone for the next year and leaves attendees feeling great about their overall experience. But now, let’s throw a wrench in the formula all event planners have created for their opening and closing receptions. That wrench? We’ll call it COVID-19.
Yes, the pandemic of 2020 has caused the event industry to quickly pivot to virtual and/or hybrid events. One area, that event planners are challenged with is the virtual reception. They want to make sure to engage their virtual attendees at their receptions but how and what does that look like exactly? And what if it’s a hybrid event, how do you bring the two groups together? Additionally, what about your sponsors and exhibitors? At your virtual event you can broadcast entertainment live from the main stage, allow attendees to network at pre-set tables (or allow attendees to pick their seat), pre-set tables and allow sponsors and exhibitors to purchase tables, allow attendees to move from table to table for networking with face-to-face chat or video chats, and so much more.

eShow’s Virtual Event Management Platform (VEM™) gives event managers the power to create engaging virtual experiences that deliver education, networking, and engagement for attendees.
