How are the pros handling events in 2020? Here are 7 key trends we noticed in the 2020 Emmy’s that can help you plan your next event.
1. Think hybrid
You can utilize the planned venue at reduced capacity with essential staff, like Jimmy Kimmel and production, then stream to a virtual audience.
2. Go global
With a virtual stream, you’re now able to target an audience virtually anywhere in the world.
3. Vibes, vibes, vibes
Just because your audience isn’t in person doesn’t mean you can’t go big on the atmosphere! Think pre-recorded music, interesting backdrops, and even shipped gifts to your key audience members to bring the event to their home.
4. Embrace the unknown
Lean into the unpredictable nature of virtual and live shows and roll with the punches to create an interesting and memorable event, like the Emmy’s lack of dress code and John Oliver’s support of Liverpool FC in his attire.
5. Expand your entertainment
The Emmy’s had everything from comedy (Jimmy Kimmel) to celebrity (Jennifer Aniston), music (pre-recorded and original scores) and even real people (astronauts)
6. Get current
We noticed the Emmy’s leaning into topics of national interest with their inclusion of our essential workers throughout COVID, including medical personnel, firefighters and UPS workers.
7. Know that we’re in this together
Audiences are more forgiving given the current situation and they’re just excited to engage with you. Have fun and enjoy the moment, don’t worry about getting everything just right!
