How a custom event works
Innovation, meet creativity.
We can build an event from the ground up to highlight a timely story, the history of your business, or the evolution of a building special to your group.
Or we can enliven your virtual conference with brief “brain breaks.”
To customize a live virtual event to your needs, we may:
- Learn more about your meeting objectives.
- Create live or recorded content to fit a desired duration.
- Write an interesting narrative and present fascinating visuals
- Help you select from our menu of virtual games, creative challenges, and other interactive elements
OUR CUSTOM EVENT SERVICES
Share the history of your company with a custom virtual event. Great for on-boarding new hires, company anniversaries, and big celebrations. We’ll research, design and host an event that tells your unique story.
Live Events for Digital Marketing
Enhance your company’s digital marketing with a custom virtual experience. For example, we designed a “Virtual Chicago Neighborhood Tour” led via 360-degree Google Street View images for a real estate company. They invited the community to attend for free as a “goodwill marketing” event.
Pre-Recorded Digital Content
Liven up a long meeting, conference or professional development seminar with custom-made “brain breaks.” See a video example of our pre-recorded storytelling content from the Choose Chicago Virtual Road Show.
