one event, many tools

There is no one solution that covers the unique needs of a virtual conference. Bringing together the best of all those tools helps keep your attendees engaged.

Virtual education events shouldn't be a lecture only. Including small and micro groups helps attendees workshop their new knowledge.

Small and micro breakouts

Solutions like Zoom bring great value to an event but like any program they miss some key functionality. We believe your attendees should be able to select breakouts without a moderator. Individuals also shouldn't need to download custom software just to join.

AV CHICAGO is virtual

For 20 years AV Chicago has provided services to the meetings and events industry. As events go completely or partly virtual, our team is ready with solutions necessary to make your event great.  

Access Control

Registration Options

Open Event

Often useful in fundraising and brand events, the open event allows anyone to participate. This is not recommended because it misses great opportunities to gather contact information and other details from the attendee when a contact capture page is added.

Contact Capture

Open events offer great opportunities to capture information from the attendee. Information like name and email can be gathered to expand mailing lists. There are additional opportunities to ask other questions that can help event organizers better understand their attendees.

Single Password

Single password events create simple protection against unwanted attendees. Event participants are provided a password during the registration process that allows access to the event. Planners should consider the possibility of the password being distributed to others. Coupled with a contact capture wall, this can be an effective tool to provide limited access control.

Event Registration

While more time consuming to the attendee and the event planner, the most secure option is requiring attendees to register for the event and provide a username and password on the day of the event. With this solution, event planners can limit the number of times a user can be logged on which prevents the sharing of credentials.
