How can Event Hosts, Sponsors, Speakers, and Media meet their goals when the “Big Event” is cancelled?

This virtual roundtable brings together people who have a shared professional interest in this topic of adapting to cancelled conferences, meetings and other in-person events. If you’re worried about your events or even thinking about this topic, we’re sure you’ll find this super interesting.


The format

You'll have a chance to meet other event producers / hosts / planners / professionals in small group video conversations, surface the challenges emerging from this pandemic, and share and discuss ideas (including across groups) for alternative ways of moving towards common objectives in this crisis. We do ask that you be willing to share ideas with colleagues, and ideally to bring a thought on how to adapt outreach and engagement when the live meetings are cancelled. Below is a sample video to illustrate how this conversation format works.


How the VoiceVoice platform works.


About VoiceVoice

VoiceVoice is a new way to engage your audience by connecting like-minded people in guided, face to face, live video conversations. Our customers include the Obama White House and campaign organizations, Airbnb, the World Bank, Stanford University, and thousands of others, hosting more than 8 million participants.

We are hosting these online panels as part of our mission as a company: to light up the world with the power of purposeful, large scale conversations that drive positive change.

In full transparency, we’ve seen that participants on the new platform become prospective customers when/if they have a need to engage people virtually. So rather than sell the platform, we’re creating this series to generate real value in conversation with educational technology leaders and other impacted professionals.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no cost to participate, it fits within our mission as a company and is a conversation we know people want/need to have right now. So there are currently no fees whatsoever.
Yes, we are currently hosting similar conversations for Employee Training Leaders, Educational Technology Professionals, Event Leaders/Planners, Human Resources Professionals, and Social Change Leaders around the world.

Here’s a quick way to see some of the engagement we've been able to foster with these virtual roundtables. It’s a short (99 seconds) video snippet from the Social Change Leaders conversation about Transforming Advocacy in a Digital Era - with a roundtable featuring change leaders from Sierra Club, Indivisible, and London School of Economics.
Due to the speed we are launching this conversation (among others) and the number of organizations reaching out to us for help amidst this pandemic, our team is unfortunately spread very thin and may not be able to hop on a call before this conversation needs to happen. We’re happy to setup a time to chat about what we’re up to outside of these COVID conversations (please contact us here).
We are inviting Event Hosts, Sponsors, Speakers, Media and other Leaders and Professionals in Event Production from around the world to contribute. We cannot say who will be in attendance on any given date, but attendees in our other roundtable conversations have included leaders from across industries- tech, government, consulting firms, etc.- and from the world’s largest brands, such as NIKE, Uber, American Cancer Society, Girl Scouts, Penguin Random House, Hewlett Packard, Kapor Center, among many others.
VoiceVoice is a new way to engage your audience by connecting like-minded people in guided, face to face, live video conversations.

The VoiceVoice platform allows hosts to generate unlimited numbers of guided small group video conversations, without the host actually needing to attend. The host records (once) the facilitation elements for a purposeful conversation (such as agenda, video guidance, and activities). The platform “facilitates” up to millions of live small groups with the recorded guidance and allows those groups to discuss, navigate together, get trained, and move into action. Here’s a sample video to illustrate how this conversation format works.
One of our colleagues had a list of relevant event professionals. This is a small/early round, and you happened to be in it. In general we plan to reach out to much bigger groups, given the great response we’ve seen so far.
We designed this conversation to be an ongoing series of live group video conversations, with each new group contributing their own unique ideas and voices to the greater discussion. We will take the notes and contributions from the many group conversations and synthesize the learnings and findings into a single, powerful document to share with everyone who participated. Where the conversation goes from there, we will look to the community for your input.
You'll meet (and speak with) other professionals in small group video conversations, surface the challenges emerging from this pandemic, and share and discuss ideas (including across groups) for alternative ways of moving towards common objectives in this crisis. You will be given a series of open-ended questions for your roundtable. There will be an Agenda & Notes available - a shared, editable document where you each add in your notes. Where the conversation leads will be up to your group.
These roundtable events do not require a moderator. Unlike in webinars or video chat meetings, with VoiceVoice, there’s no live presenter or facilitator, the conversation that participants have is guided and structured using pre-recorded content that we’ve created.
This conversation is open to the public but we ask you to fully participate and bring a thought or idea to share. You are welcome (and we encourage you) to share the conversation with your networks. Feel free to share the link to the registration page: https://beta.voicevoice.com/register/eventleaders2020

And/or if you have an interest in our other conversations, please feel free to participate fully (i.e. not just “kick the tires”) in similar conversations we’re producing for:

We suggest blocking 1.5 hrs, people often want to stay and connect afterwards with the other thought leaders.
We are hosting this timely, important conversation because it speaks to our mission as a company- to light up the world with the power of purposeful, large scale conversations that drive positive change.

We’re the technology leader in deeply interactive virtual events. With customers from Airbnb to Uber, Stanford to Berkeley, and all of the top Democratic presidential campaigns for 2020, we have proven to over 8 million participants that our platforms, MaestroConference and VoiceVoice, deliver engagement for organizations who value their geographically distributed stakeholders.

In full transparency, we’ve seen that participants on the new platform become prospective customers when/if they have a need to engage people virtually. So rather than sell the platform, we’re creating this series to generate real value in conversation with corporate training leaders and other impacted professionals.
Great to hear! We'd be happy to share more info. Please answer a few questions to signup for a demo here.
