THE BENEFITS OF CONFERENCE CAPTURE

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

By capturing your conference and broadcasting it to reach a wider audience through live webcasts, on demand video or vodcasts, a virtual event is created that can develop new streams of income.

There is an increasing business need for Conference and Event organisers to identify ways of making their events more memorable and to engage with a wider audience. Conference / Event sponsors are always looking for innovative ways of promoting their brands to increasing numbers of relevant people.

The content of any conference or simple presentation is extremely valuable and the traditional way of delivering the material meant that only limited numbers of people (those who attended the physical event) would get any value from it. There is a huge audience (comprising those people who were unable to attend the Conference) that remains untapped by both organisers and sponsors alike. This is very much like an iceberg – a relatively small audience sees the event with a far greater number missing out.

Capturing a conference is a great way to exploit this untapped market opportunity, extending the reach and impact of any given event. In turn, an event’s sponsor gets much greater exposure and an increased return on their investments allowing event organisers to attract higher levels of sponsorship.

By using live streaming video an online audience can share the experience of the live event. Once the content has been captured in this way, it can be turned into a vodcast or podcast (audio only) and can be made available as ‘on demand’ content to allow people who missed the live event to access it at their convenience.
