Roundtables are a perfect way to deliver unique in-person experiences to a selected group of participants. Roundtables work the same way in a virtual event format. It enables hosts to curate a list of attendees and offer exclusive content to a small or large set of attendees at a time.

Roundtables have moderators in each breakout room. It splits the event attendees into a group of 10-15 people and allows them to have a discussion with a moderator in a breakout room, thus delivering a more personalised virtual experience while creating social roundtables.

2. Keynotes

By incorporating storytelling and future forecasts, keynotes are capable of setting the tone of large-scaled conferences and summits. It helps in strengthening the messages of your event by leaving the long-lasting impact. Moving the keynote session in a virtual space is an effective way to deliver the speech and message from the speaker to a wider spectrum of audience.
