We all know face-to-face meetings and events can be a costly expense, especially if you have attendees all over the world. Online conference systems are an option, of course. But often lack the energy and the sense of occasion you get when you’re all in the same room.
A virtual meeting can combine the best of both worlds: quite literally. So while you may have the majority of your audience at one venue, your meeting can easily be extended to include participants – even speakers – in other locations, who can all actively contribute to the meeting using two-way communication.
But the key element to a successful virtual meeting is not the technology itself but knowing how to make the most of it. Connecting with remote participants requires a radical rethink of your agenda and presentation style; a series of monologues with a bunch of slides is guaranteed to fail. Crystal helps you to rethink your style to engage your audience like never before.

Keep costs low with reduced hotel, flight and hardware expenses
There are numerous companies who know what it takes to run a successful virtual meeting – at least in theory. But unlike Crystal, very few have translated the theory into the hands-on business of developing content for virtual meetings, or transforming seasoned conference speakers into engaging virtual meeting presenters.
We have the technology too, of course. Anywhere in the world, attendees can connect to the virtual meeting using their own device and participate in voting and speakers’ questions. Our moderators work with this input to turn a one-way broadcast into a global conversation.
Our experienced technical team can provide the support you need, both at the planning stage and during the broadcast, to ensure your meeting runs smoothly. Plus we always have a back-up plan in place too to overcome any issues that may arise when connecting virtual delegates over the internet.
But it’s the experience of our facilitators that will really make a difference to your meeting. Whether it’s an audience of 30 or 2,000 we’ll create content, coach the presenters and moderate both the onsite and online meeting so it runs like clockwork.
