Spring is one of the most popular times for annual conferences. Trade shows, seminars, association AGMs, commercial conferences, and more... and many are moving from the traditional hotel-conference venue to online-digital platforms.
If you are an event planner or conference organizer, you’ll be considering ways to make your online conference more interactive and engaging.
Teambonders is here to help.
We are experts in designing, customizing and facilitating virtual activities for groups of all sizes, from small teams to groups of thousands. We provide the platform technology, hosting, activity leadership, and even professional speakers (for events such as Live Chef Experience..).
We’ll also assist you with choosing an activity that is sure to delight your audience.
This may be the first time you’ve organized an online conference, so you’ll be breaking new ground. While you are in the planning stage, it’s a good idea to consider ways to make the online experience more fun.
Here’s four ways you can incorporate a team building activity into your program.
#1 - Ice-breakers
Ice-breakers are quick interactive activities that get participants to talk to each other, learn names and connect. An ice-breaker activity is a great way to start off a conference program, especially when held in smaller group virtual breakout rooms. We can recommend several different shorter activities that will help your attendees relax and bond with each other.
#2 - Mental and Physical Breaks
If your conference includes multiple seminars and highly engaged learning, then having a fun and entertaining breakout session can help participants rest, de-stress, and even physically stretch. We have customizable well-being sessions that can introduce mindfulness, and physical exercises such as yoga to a recess period.
#3 - Entertainment / Rewards
At the end of the day, you can replace the conference hospitality suite and gala with a fun-filled program including pre-arranged food and beverages, delivered to your guests. When it comes to putting the fun in an online event, we’ve got so many choices for you. The best way is to browse our line-up and select a few. Your Teambonders program manager will help you decide and fully customize your activities. We have classic game shows, quizzes, collaborative activities, talent contests, guest speakers & entertainers, online escape games,.. And more..
Plus, our games / challenges / tasks / questions are fully customizable to your unique program. For example, if your conference is about sustainable energy, then we can customize the quiz questions to fit, using learnings from your seminars and conference material!
#4 - Charity / Corporate Responsibility Activities
In the past, conferences, especially annual corporate events, often included a charity component to allow employees to participate in an activity that benefited the community. This transition can continue with virtual conferences and meetings. Teambonders has many different activities that can be run to support your favourite cause - all virtual!
Holding an online conference for the first time may seem like a daunting challenge. It’s important to plan well ahead and work with a team that can bring experience to the table. Teambonders is ready to work with your team and help create a truly memorable experience.
