From the beginning, the Coronavirus has disrupted a variety of industries. The immediate disruptions were obvious and widespread: toilet paper and hand sanitizer were nonexistent, grocery store shelves were empty, and many businesses were closed. These closures, along with many companies transitioning their employees to working from home, made it difficult to communicate with their staff, clientele, and customers.
Studio46 Media, a video and live event production company located in Lexington, KY recognizes the unique challenges facing organizations throughout Central Kentucky and all over the United States right now as we continue this battle with COVID-19. Many companies have lost the opportunity to see their clients face to face at meetings, annual conferences, and trade shows, and many event and meeting planners were forced to cancel the in-person events that they had been planning for months – a process that is both frustrating. While we know that the closures, cancellations, and postponements are in the best interest of everyone involved, it doesn’t mean that you have to cancel your events entirely.
Why not take your event virtual?
Recently, Studio46 Media had the opportunity to assist a local non-profit organization, Step-by-Step, move their yearly “Step Into Beautiful” event virtual. This event is their largest fundraiser that helps raise the funds to meet their annual operating budget, so they can continue to serve moms and kids every day. The money raised during this event is also used to launch their emergency relief fund so that they can help the urgent and immediate needs of the moms and kids in their program. Executive Director of Step-by-Step, Tanya Torp shared her gratitude and stated, “This is the most professional environment we’ve ever been in; they created a studio for us!”
By taking their event virtual, we were able to calm their nerves and take the production of the event into our hands. Step-by-Step successfully reached their goal and are able to continue supporting the non-profits work each day with young moms and their kids, and fund their new emergency relief fund.
The age of Virtual Events is only beginning, and as you are looking at planning your next event – contact Studio46 Media so that we can help you create an incredible experience for everyone involved.
