Host Your Next Conference Virtually Using TikiLIVEWhile the economy may be slowly rebounding, it is still far from where it was prior to the Great Recession. For this reason, businesses and non-profits are constantly looking for ways to cut costs without reducing the effectiveness of the organization. One of the primary ways that organizations can improve is through proper training. Much of this training is often in the form of conferences that take place around the country.

Conferences can be extremely expensive to organize and implement. With the rising cost of airfare and travel accommodations, companies are looking at alternatives to traditional training conferences. One way companies are saving money today is by hosting their global conferences through live online streaming. Using a broadcasting platform like TikiLIVE allows organizations to meet on important issues without spending exorbitant amounts of money on travel. TikiLIVE is a leading content provider that makes it easy for anyone to instantly stream a video feed to anyone around the world at any time.

Benefits of Using TikiLIVE for Your Next Conference

Below are a few reasons why choosing TikiLIVE may make perfect sense for your next conference:

Reduce Costs

As mentioned above, cost savings are one of the most apparent advantages to streaming your next conference. By virtually broadcasting your conference, you are instantly eliminating expensive airfare, lodging, meals and other incidental expenses that can quickly drive the cost of a conference into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

With TikiLIVE, all you need is a simple video camera and a computer and you can be streaming your conference in minutes. TikiLIVE has robust features that allow all of your employees or organization members to participate in your conference from the comfort of their own home or office.

Improved Participation

Lets face it, many times employees are not looking at conferences as a way to better themselves or improve their skills. They often look at conferences as a way to have a free vacation in the form of complementary meals, nice hotel stays and free travel to a far off and often swanky destination. While this is all well and good if a company is busting at the seams with cash, it is often not an effective way of training employees or organization members.

With virtual conferences, the focus is much more about the content that you are delivering as opposed to the surroundings. With a virtual conference, you can require attendance and chances are your organization members will be more focused on the conference material since they will not have the usual distractions seen at many conferences around the globe. A virtual conference gives organizations a chance to focus on bettering the attendees without all the frills.

Location Independent

The beauty of a virtual conference is that you do not have to worry about where your attendees are located. They could be anywhere around the world and login to view your materials live. This gives you more flexibility about who can view your conference material and may even open up the opportunity to expand the reach of your organization. While it is definitely not economical to open up a traditional on location conference to everyone, with a virtual conference, you really could open up your conference to a much larger audience.

On Demand Options

With a traditional conference, you spend a large amount of money to bring loads of people together to hear powerful speakers and to hopefully have your members learn a few things while at your conference. The problem with this approach is that once your conference is over, there is often no trace of any of the powerful messages that were featured during the conference. With a virtual conference, this can be much different. You can stream your conference live and then archive it to be viewed on demand whenever you would like. You can even monetize your content through TikiLIVE’s pay-per-view options. This allows you to generate income long after your conference is over.

Robust Analytics

By partnering with TikiLIVE for your next event, you can generate robust and valuable analytics that can help you determine what is working and what is not. Physical conferences make it hard to track much more than whether a participant checked in or not. With virtual conferences, you can find out the parts of your conference that were the most popular, which can tell you what topics are of the most interest and areas where you can improve your message.

Environmentally Friendly

While being environmentally friendly as a business or organization is trendy, it is also very important to the lifeblood of our nation and the entire world. Think about the benefits to the environment that can be seen from eliminating travel expenses related to conferences. You can also reduce the amount of printed materials that are typically printed at conferences by providing all of these materials in a digital format. It’s hard to argue with saving money and saving the environment at the same time.

Available to All Organizations

In the past, only large organizations had the financial resources to put on an effective conference. With conferences that are hosted virtually, this is no longer the case. An organization of any size can use TikiLIVE’s suite of services to broadcast a top-notch event to the masses. As long as you have a captive audience, you can easily use TikiLIVE to broadcast your next conference event.

Accessibility To All

Another benefit of using TikiLIVE is that your attendees can access the conference from any device of their choice. Whether your participants have a mobile phone, tablet, computer or television, TikiLIVE offers viewing options for the masses. TikiLIVE has put significant resources into ensuring that everyone, regardless of device, can view your streaming content online and have the best experience possible.
