Community and Engagement in a Virtual World: An Event Case Study

Engaging Your Event Community in an Online World with Milena Levent, Tradeshow & Development Director, HSC; KiKi L'Italien, Community Engagement Expert, Association Chat | Tecker International; and Kate Jackson, Head of Event Operations, EdTechX.

Expert Community Creators weigh in on how to bring people closer during times of uncertainty and change. We take a look at a real-life case study and learn how one event embarked on the search for the right tools to engage their online community and create authentic connections, because let's face it, we're all human and all need to belong to something bigger than ourselves.

Milena asks some tough and interesting questions, starting with the key steps to building an online community and what value it brings to an event. Kiki and Kate talk about real-life examples they experienced of virtual community-building during online events and what the organizers did to facilitate it.


The three experts discuss the tools needed for engagement and how to ensure the best attendee experience possible.
