Right away, attendees realize how easy and fun it is to explore the virtual campus. Once they create their custom avatar, they’re able to jump right in. Because we feature dozens of meeting rooms and private areas, networking and interaction opportunities come naturally. It encourages conversation and sharing ideas!

Managing your virtual campus experience

Creating a lasting experience is key. And Merestone’s production staff is always there to manage every aspect of your event. The same goes for Merestone’s campus.  We schedule speakers, assign rooms, incorporate sponsors, and brand the environment. For example, Agendas can be displayed in the Welcome Foyer. Sponsors and partner logos can be displayed on the banners outside or in a specific meeting room.

We can have classroom, rounds, or board rooms with the click of a mouse. And because our production team is present during every keynote presentation, our client’s know they are covered. It’s just like managing a live, in-person event.

Virtual Award Sets

What are Virtual Award Sets?

For many years, stage designs have set the tone for live meetings and events. Take the awards show season in Hollywood, for example. Every award show is trying to deliver a unique experience. They want something exciting and that engages attendees and viewers at home. Virtual Award programs and virtual award sets must have the same approach.

Using a virtual award set is the best way to re-create the experience and excitement of a live, in-person event.

Virtual Award SetsMerestone’s Virtual Awards Sets offer versatility and add production value to your virtual meeting. We accomplish this in a few ways. First, each virtual set comes with multiple camera angles. This is much like a large network television studio. Presenters can appear in different areas of the stage. We can do camera moves. It breaks up the monotony of using the same background image. Second, we’re not restricted by ceiling height or ballroom sizes. This allows us the creative freedom to add depth and dimension to the design. And finally, we can add any content to the digital screens within the set—just like we would on a live show. This means we can bring in powerpoints, videos, and guest speakers.

How to connect with your audience in a virtual meeting.

by David DeRoser | Merestone Director of Information Services

At Merestone, our approach to virtual events is straightforward. We make them feel like live, in-person experiences. Just like live events, virtual meetings must be memorable. That’s because memorable experiences resonate the most with attendees. And so, our approach is the most effective way to reach your audience.

Why can’t we use music and animations to introduce speakers, like on a live show for instance? Why can’t virtual meetings have an engaging Emcee to keep the meeting moving at a good pace? Why can’t there be small panels, guest speakers, or Q&A sessions? What about entertainment or awards recognition?

All of this is possible with a virtual event.

Award Ceremonies. Sales Summits. Training. Tradeshows.

We can successfully produce them all within a virtual environment. That’s because Merestone has the tools in place to transform virtual meetings and events into engaging experiences. So we start with planning and rehearsals. We then focus on content, delivery, smooth transitions, and creating memorable experiences.

With virtual meetings and events, creating a memorable experience is key. Merestone offers several interactive solutions to accomplish this right out of the gate. From our live stream platform to our new virtual campus, we’re ready to engage your attendees. Consider the current meeting trend; a one or two-hour zoom call. No one remembers everything said in a two-hour zoom call. Most people recall the first few minutes and then check out. For instance, they work on other things instead of listening. Their attention is divided. They stay on mute with their cameras off. They don’t bother to ask questions, even if the opportunity arises.

Now imagine spending that same amount of time interacting with attendees inside our virtual campus instead.

Merestone’s Virtual Campus offers dozens of opportunities to learn and network. Multiple meetings can be scheduled throughout the day. It’s just like taking over a hotel ballroom or convention center for the weekend. It all takes place in an environment that encourages communication and sharing. Attendees will want to talk to each other. They won’t be on mute. They’ll want to ask questions and exchange ideas.

In other words, our virtual campus is 1000 times better than a Zoom Call.

Connecting with your virtual audience and making memorable experiences go hand in hand. Let’s make a gameplan for your next virtual meeting. Speak with a Merestone Producer today and we’ll get started.
