Here’s an interesting question, are events enough? Both Endless Events and IMEX group suggest that the event industry needs to go further and look to building communities.

From Endless events, ‘Is This Even An Event Anymore? Building Communities with Mia Masson
Join us for a discussion with Mia Masson, the content director of Swapcard, and explore the power that events have to build communities and how to leverage this.

From the IMEX Group, ‘Events are not enough any more. Why is everyone betting on communities?
Join our panel of world-class experts as they discuss the next iteration of the event industry: communities. Popular in-person events are betting on community as the propeller for change. Could this finally be the right time to realise the promise of year-long engagement and see it come to fruition?

Despite the relaxation of Covid restrictions, virtual events are here to stay and have become part of the event planners tool kit. Accelevents believe they are essential for marketing, ‘7 Reasons Why Virtual Events Are An Essential Marketing Tool‘.

Another video from Endless Events looks at how you can reuse content derived from a virtual event, ‘Why You Should Always Repurpose Virtual Event Content?
Planning an event can take month or even a year depending on the scope of the event. An even though virtual events don’t require some of the time intensive elements like booking travels or venues they still require a lot of work. So when the event is over wouldn’t it be great if all that time and effort that you put into planning could still be used to your advantage, well it can. And this is where repurposing your virtual content comes into play.

Today’s selection is based on our big list of YouTube channels. If there’s a channel you think we’re missing out then please get in touch. Previous weeks listings are below…
