While business events came to a screeching halt for a few months, many organizations are now remembering how critical conferences are to their future (and revenue streams). For safety and convenience, these events are now online.
Virtual events aren’t new, but they’re certainly more prominent these days. Now, instead of worrying about swag bags or transportation arrangements, your primary concern is how to ensure that your audience comes away with a great experience, that they learn steps they can use right away to improve their performance, and that your event is memorable.
After all, your attendees have been through a lot, they are amazing at what they do, and they deserve an event that keeps them engaged and entertained… not just more hours wasted staring at a computer screen. They deserve a rockstar virtual emcee.
Fortunately, if you’re looking to increase the energy of your event and improve the focus of your attendees, there’s an easy solution: hire a virtual emcee.

Another Pair of Helping Hands
While you’ve likely got a tech team behind the scenes making sure that everything goes smoothly, it’s essential to have some support on-camera, as well. A virtual emcee has four main jobs:
- They will get involved during the planning process to ensure that the event will go off without a hitch.
- Once the event room is open, they’ll be there to greet attendees as they “enter” the event, making them feel welcome and comfortable, and helping them acclimate to the environment.
- As the event begins, they’ll set the “stage” or establish the tone, raising the excitement level and drawing attendees into the action.
- Throughout the event, they’ll keep an eye on the time, making sure that the event flows properly and that attendees are ushered comfortably from one speaker or activity to the next.
Builds Excitement and Energy
We’ve all sat through at least one mind-numbing virtual event. The introductions are bland, the speakers aren’t engaging (or, even worse, monotone), and the siren song of our cellphones, television, pets, window, etc. is strong. We’d rather be doing anything else. Even laundry.
A virtual emcee, or a virtual host as they are sometimes called, can make your attendees feel like they are in the room, participating in the festivities, and fully engaged with the speakers and the event as a whole. You’ll be able to feel the difference in the energy when a seasoned virtual emcee is at the helm. They’ll be humorous, energetic, and entertaining.
Attracts More Attendees
Right now, your potential attendees are being bombarded with offers for online conferences, webinars, meetings, classes, you name it. Many of these offerings are even free to attend. You’ll need to find a way to stand out from other events competing for their attention. Having a virtual emcee will not only attract more attendees to your virtual event, it will also give people confidence that your event is going to be better than the others.
Keeps the Event Running Smoothly
You probably wouldn’t host a live event without an emcee. After all, someone needs to moderate the event, introduce the speakers, keep attendees engaged throughout the day, and transition from one activity to another. Without them, the event may come off as choppy, amateur, or a complete and utter disaster.
Having a rockstar virtual emcee is just as important during a virtual event. The right virtual host will take your event from “just another webinar” to a professional event that will have your attendees talking for years to come. Imagine how good it will feel when your virtual event gets more praise than past in-person meetings or conferences!
