Plan V: What’s The Story?

As event organizers get more comfortable with virtual meetings, and as viewers’ expectations continue to grow, it’s time to explore how to change things up.

A good place to start is by asking: “What’s your story?” That’s why we hosted the fourth of our conversations around virtual events, talking through how to differentiate your event with storytelling.

Watch the Webinar On-Demand

In the 1-hour event, our subject matter experts not only discuss the importance of storytelling, story wrapping, and story arc in creating an engaging virtual event, but also share best practices and new ideas from the front lines to create a memorable, unique experience for your attendees.

9 Elements of Storytelling Framework

From determining your event characters and theme to introducing conflict and event resolution, you can make your next virtual experience truly stand-out with these 9 elements of storytelling.

Telling Your Story with Video

Our LAI Video colleagues also shared some great tips and examples of using video at each stage of the virtual storytelling framework. For example, when talking about Setting, they shared a few clips, including "The Need to Know Show" they created for AHRI.

We also discussed ways to optimize pre-records by filming your remote interviews in-person and leveling-up your virtual events with "continuity show graphics."

On the topic of Resolution, the team discussed the power of virtual event recap videos, like NAIOP's CRE.Converge recap. And on the topic of Emotion, they talked about using opening videos, ensemble videos, and mission videos that truly resonate with viewers, like what LAI Video has done with No Kid Hungry.
