Virtual Panel Discussions

Highly interactive events composed of multiple panels and guests staged over a two-to-four hour period driven by a specific theme yet presented to a select target audience as an event series over a significant period of time.
  • Multiple cams needed at one time for panel members and moderator
  • High level of interactivity needed
  • Polls and chat needed with the ability to both moderate chat and route questions to panelists
  • Branded stage with the ability to rotate guests in and out
  • Sponsorship opportunities with all to action links
  • Integration of video and slides with live talent


  • Managing the greenroom and backstage is a demanding role for the event team especially given timings within the ROS and remaining on path
  • Dry runs are useful for basic mechanics yet the “live show” aspect adds to the intensity of the event
  • Guest speaker tech checks are most critical allowing for “technical peace of mind” prior to the event, yet not all speakers join until prior to event start thus making the greenroom a critical element
  • Operational excellence is required for live production, and producers and backstage teams following each ROS to the tee is critical to success
