During this period of social distancing, it’s important to still stay connected however we can. Virtual experiences can help keep you and your guests and coworkers on the same page, while adding in some new and unexpected twists to keep everyone engaged. We are excited to share some great virtual success strategies with you to ensure that your presentations, teambuilding activities, gift-giving, and virtual meetings remain exceptional experiences, every time.
BRING PRESENTATIONS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
CSI works on Microsoft Teams. Our dedicated employees rely on each other, both within our regional offices as well as company-wide using Video Team Chat. Our culture of teamwork, support, and sharing activates our ability to work effectively for our clients and partners no matter where we are. CSI is able to share our video platform to further support you and nurture our partnerships.
Have fun! Take your meeting outside into the Botanical Garden and sip tea while you take the meeting right from your desk at home. This portable green screen fits on your desk chair and provides great background coverage (to hide the kids) giving you the ability to switch the background out based on the theme of your meeting.
Touch, Feel, and See. Mood boards can be sent to clients in lieu of a décor site visit. This compilation of inspirational images and linen samples will offer visuals for discussion about the proposal during the creative process. The collection of textures and design inspiration creates a hands on experience for the client.
Surprise Singers – turned virtual: A trio interrupts the video presentation acting like they’re in the wrong meeting to shock the client. Then they break out into song using customized lyrics based on company keywords. All the while clients will enjoy the surprise and be delighted while an invaluable memory is shared.
COME TOGETHER WITH REMOTE TEAMBUILDING
PAINT & SIP
Prior to the event date, each guest will receive all of their art supplies in an all-inclusive package. Each guest will prepare their favorite seating area at home with the supplies they received and log in to the live streaming platform. As guests arrive they will meet and greet with their instructor with live Q&A all night. Enhance the experience by including a bottle of wine with the supplies!
VIRTUAL CITY HUNTS
An entertaining virtual adventure awaits guests in the city or location of choice connecting an array of remote multi-city activities allowing teams in different locations to participate in team-building events without having to leave their home, office or local area. The video conference enables facilitation to be run in two or more cities at the same time.
Think of it as a mashup of Hollywood Squares, HQ Trivia, Charades, and a virtual board game, starring you and your co-workers facilitated by a hilarious host. This Remote Team Building experience creates relationships between colleagues in a vibrant interactive fun culture for the team to problem solve, compete, be silly and bond with each other.
VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR
Socialize remotely! Technology like Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime makes it easier than ever to connect our partners and teams together for Happy Hour after a long day of work to catch up connecting people in real time. Make your favorite cocktail and share the recipe or engage a local mixologist or bartender to stream with the group for added tips and tricks.
SEND SOME LOVE WITH CARE PACKAGES
YOU’RE ONE OF A KIND
Guests will have a virtual experience with the Color Bar™ and customize their own jewelry. Select from earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Next, select the metal (like gold). Finally, complete the look with a stone of choice which will then be mailed out to each individual. Consider including a personal note with QR code for a truly amazing and interactive experience.
CONFERENCE AT HOME
Send employees a box of special branded goodies such as pencils, custom notepad, door tag and an air plant to help customize their work from home space while reminding them of their connection to the rest of the company.
GIFTING FROM A DISTANCE
This easy to use alternate on-site gifting experience to incentivize guests or award winners is available for them to shop online with the choice of gift and brand names they will love. Each gift will be conveniently delivered to their doorstep.
Every day self care is important mentally and physically. This Stay Well Kit includes a custom tea blend, honey sticks, an immune booster, comfy socks, and other small practical luxuries. Consider adding a CSR component like gift cards to a local restaurant employees frequent by the office or pairing it with a streaming live fitness activity for the group to follow at home.
MAKE AN IMPACT WITH ENHANCED VIRTUAL MEETINGS
3D AND VR CONFERENCE
This platform allows clients to create a virtual reception, a virtual auditorium and virtual meeting rooms to meet in 3D. Sponsor booths will be developed in 3D, linking any 2D event booking platform to become 3D. The system allows attendees to ask questions during meetings or sessions. Shared content like videos and presentations through 3D entities can be connected.
STREAM VIRTUAL EVENTS
Everyone has the best seat in the house! Live streaming events combines the best of live theatricality mixed with live effects experienced on Broadcast TV. All different parts of the agenda will be recreated with live streaming including main stage presentations, breakouts, panel discussions, and remote chats from around the world.
It’s important to access content through a range of learning styles. Adding a graphic artist will keep attendees attention during a virtual meeting by engaging the kinetic and visual learners to reinforce what they are hearing. At the end of the conference they will receive an illustrated digital graphic to convey the big picture and have a keepsake after the event.
Personalization to any conference or meeting is key and a great way to encourage social sharing. A fun gift to guests is an interactive virtual live caricature art experience with other attendees. A digital caricature of each guest will be created and the final version will be sent to them in a jpg along with a recorded video of the experience.
