Picture this. You’ve just nailed your keynote presentation and attendees are now invited to join your breakout session.
You’re excited to maintain the momentum and looking forward to engaging with your audience on a more personal level. As you work to kick things off, you quickly realize how many items require your attention aside from hosting: the session slides aren’t loading, your mic isn’t working, and as you troubleshoot – you realize there are unmuted participants with background noises, quickly hijacking your session.
This is a scenario that is commonplace among virtual events, and one that even the best planners have experienced. When it comes to virtual events, many planners put most of their focus on the mainstage and often don’t think as much on the smaller more conversational experiences in their breakouts. Oftentimes, regardless of how well you plan, a breakout session can become unruly without dedicated resources to oversee and troubleshoot production details. That’s why with Convene Studio, we offer expert support to coordinate all technical components of these breakouts, so that speakers and attendees can focus on their session and engagement with one another, instead of unforeseen difficulties.
Not only does our team work diligently behind the scenes to ensure that your breakouts run smoothly, but they’re also essential for encouraging healthy engagement amongst attendees. Below, we’ll take a closer look at Convene Studio’s breakout rooms and how our support team works to keep your breakouts on track.
Convene Studio’s Breakout Rooms
We’ve designed our Studio breakout rooms to be as user-friendly as possible for organizers and attendees alike. You’ll find your breakout sessions easily in the agenda of your event page, along with session details and instructions on how to log on. After you’ve joined via web browser or mobile phone, you can adjust your video and audio settings, as well as choose between grid view and active speaker view. You’ll find a chat feature on the bottom that allows you to message other attendees, and you can also screen share presentations or pre-recorded videos at the click of a button.
