Supercharge your YES virtual events

As YES campaigners lead the independence movement in 2021, virtual events will continue to be the only game in town.

Virtual is an environment we have to master. 

With a finite amount of time, money and resources, the virtual meetings and virtual events that campaigners run have to be as productive and as meaningful as possible.

“This best practice virtual event will help YES campaigners run events that will create great content, allow attendees to make the right connections and ensure great coverage of their events” - William Thomson, YES campaigner and founder Virtual Event Campus

We will help campaigners:

  • Generate revenue online to fund other activities
  • Use events to educate and inform their members, other yes voters and undecided voters
  • Choose the best platform and also find the best technology to support their events
  • Decide where to show their events and how to attract more attendees
  • Create truly shareable content

TICKETS cover Friday or Saturday or BOTH days. Register now. 

6pm to 9.30pm 26th / 27th March

6.30 “Simon, you are on mute!” ….why we need to talk about Zoom

Zoom is the default platform for many independence events and most event organisers. In this session, we will look at the ‘Zoom to Zoom’ and discuss the highs and lows of that platform and start to look at the alternatives. Because there are loads of alternatives.

7.00 How to promote your virtual events

So you have done all the hard work. You have your platform and all your speakers. But aren’t you forgetting something? Ah yes the attendees!

How do you make sure your event cuts through the digital noise? Who should be your target market? Where should you stream to?
