Thanks to the rise in video conferencing technology and the safety issues inherent in meeting in person during the pandemic, many of us now use remote technology to connect with others.
Over the past year, the lockdowns have led to a rise in the use of video conferencing and other remote communication technology.
With the ongoing uncertainty prevalent in today’s society and the ease that video conferencing presents, particularly if you’re trying to gather together a large group of people scattered around the world, it’s clear that remote video experiences are here to stay.
Still, video conferencing, particularly for celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries, can feel clinical and less exciting than an in-person party.
Here are some tips to make your next virtual gathering more luxurious and inventive so that your guests will have fun memories they can cherish for years to come.
Create Stunning Invitations
Just because your get-together is virtual doesn’t mean that your invitations have to be too. Consider creating unique invitations that can be sent out and which include a QR code to allow guests access to your event. If you want to keep your invitations digital, then you can consider using design tools to create a quirky invitation that stands out from the rest. These invites will make your remote gathering stand apart from the rest and make it feel like a special event, rather than just another video conference.
Incorporate Celebrity Appearances
Getting a celebrity appearance at a virtual party is much easier than at a physical gathering. With the help of online platforms such as Thrillz, you can get a celebrity video message to play during your remote gathering. The site has hundreds of stars to choose from, including reality TV favourites, sporting legends, musicians and more. There are also lookalikes of major celebrities, so while you might not be able to get the real deal, you could get a guest appearance from a convincing lookalike. So, you’ll be able to choose the perfect individual to make a guest appearance and lend their star power to your next virtual event.
Consider A Virtual Party Game Or Quiz
Virtual meet-ups require slightly more structure than an in-person party, as it can be awkward to sit and chat on a video conference. Thankfully, there are loads of digital games for video conferencing, so you can find one that suits your event and guests. By searching app stores and online video conferencing platforms, you can find a fun game for you and your guests to play together. If you want to create a personal and unique event, then you could consider making a quiz that includes in-jokes and family or friendship group trivia. A quiz or game is a fun way to bring your guests together and encourage a little friendly competition.
Make The Most Of VR Technology
Traditional video conferencing software can make virtual events feel a bit dull and formal. With a virtual reality experience, you can transform your ordinary event into something unforgettable. VR technology has been a popular tool among gamers for many years, but it’s now entering the mainstream. There are now many VR video conferencing tools that can make your remote gatherings engaging and interactive. Explore the selection of VR video conferencing solutions available to find the one that will suit your needs and help you to create an unforgettable experience for yourself and your guests.
A virtual party might not seem as fun as an in-person celebration, but with a little planning and preparation, you could create an unforgettable experience. Use these tips to get inspiration for your next remote gathering, whether it’s with friends, family or a bit of both.
