2 Ways to Maximize Virtual Meetings

Let’s face it, virtual meetings aren’t going anywhere. With remote and hybrid work continuing as the norm for most industries, professionals’ desire for new virtual experiences is as strong as ever.

Whether your next meeting aims to educate or connect attendees, virtual activities provide a collective experience that the typical virtual meeting often lacks. Attendees look to these activities as a way to break up their jam-packed meetings schedule with something both unfamiliar and exciting. 

Beyond networking, virtual activities can give your meeting an edge that attendees will remember. If done properly, these activities can increase attendee retention, communication and morale at your meeting. 

Want to maximize these benefits? Check out two virtual experiences designed with your meetings’ goals in mind:

Social Hour

Social Hour Virtual

Reimagine happy hour with this pub-themed virtual event, featuring a variety of lighthearted mini-games built directly into the platform. Once participants are split into small groups, they will go head-to-head in Fun Fact Matching, Pub Trivia, Buzz-In Challenges and Pictionary. 

Unlike your average virtual activity, the interactive platform enables players to perform all actions entirely within the software. Reinforcing attendee communication, players will huddle privately with their group and take turns as team captains. Not only does this allow attendees to connect on a deeper level, but it also breaks down barriers across industries and roles.  

To keep things competitive, a live leaderboard will appear after each mini-game. At the end of the session, participants will unite to customize their own photo booth memento.

Bank Heist: Escape Experience

Bank Heist Escape Virtual

Calling all thrill seekers! Put your attendees’ problem solving skills to the test in an exhilarating, story-driven bank heist with a philanthropic twist. Unlike other virtual escape rooms out there, this experience transports participants from their remote work space into a fully immersive environment, allowing them to explore and interact in 360 degrees. 

From challenging puzzles to adrenaline pumping mini games, participants must work together to unlock the vault and collect as much cash as possible before cops arrive at the scene. Once the session ends, a leaderboard will indicate which players received the most cash.

Not only does the high-stakes situation encourage attendee communication, but it also allows players to stimulate their minds in unexpected ways, leaving them refueled for what’s to come.
