Since 2020, we’ve seen a huge increase in the organisation and attendance of virtual conferences. Video conferencing technology has made it safe and easy for millions of delegates to attend conferences from anywhere in the world. With some of the larger online conferences running across several days and featuring hundreds of keynote sessions, a lot of information can be imparted in a relatively short time. Conferences present great opportunities for bonding and networking with industry peers. They can also become tiring because they require lots of attention. Virtual activities and conference energisers are great for keeping energy levels high and connecting attendees. An informal interactive experience can be a great way to open or close a conference, or to provide entertainment at a midway point. Here are some fun games and activities for virtual conferences.
Open a conference with a flourish, or reward guests for their attendance with some virtual entertainment. Live music is generally well-received. Your delegates may enjoy a performance by a virtual band, who can tailor a set and show to your requirements. Our live DJ and Bongo duo are guaranteed to get the party started and our improvised songwriter will amuse guests with his interactive show. For a real party vibe, book our 5* rated music bingo event to get your guests dancing and bonding to the beat.
Games and challenges
Virtual games are great for sharpening the minds and overcoming any mid-conference slump. Virtual escape games such as Riddle of the Dragon, or the Atlantean chest will have teams of delegates solving puzzles together. Events like Virtual Globe Trotting and Arctic Survival use a combination of Zoom and an app to immerse guests in a virtual challenge that will reward their puzzle solving skills. For a light-hearted alternative, our Gameshow Bonanza game balances challenge with hilarity. Each attendee becomes a contestant in a series of gameshow inspired rounds, during which they’ll bond, compete, and enjoy watching each other complete some very silly tasks.
Mind and body
Sitting in front of a screen for hours on end can take its toll on any virtual conference delegate. It is therefore important to provide virtual activities which nurture and refresh the body and mind. A virtual mindfulness session will help guests relax, focus, and better manage negative thinking. A virtual yoga session will help guests to stretch and improve posture, whereas a virtual dance class will raise their pulses and teach new skills. Why not combine both with a Disco Yoga session? This fun activity is filled with energy and entertainment, which is just what’s needed to relieve Zoom-fatigue.
Our conference energisers and virtual activities can be booked as standalone experiences, or as part of a wider agenda. They’re also great for parties, team building, work socials and other virtual corporate events. For help finding the best conference energisers and online events, get in touch below.
