Virtual Events

It is almost ironic how change is the only constant yet how everything around us is constantly changing! It’s 2020, the world is growing, people are evolving and mindsets are maturing. With the hustle of this year and so much more that has been coming into the picture, “online events” are the new cool. Business, education, teaching, and learning, communicating, and possibly everything has now turned digital. There are too many workshops and events running across the world and people have shown great interest in virtual events. 

Here are the top seven ideas for online events for a variety of areas and activities:

1. Cooking Workshops

Many virtual cooking classes have developed in recent times wherein recipes are shared and instructions are given by the chef all through the screen. Online cooking courses have also come up wherein the cooks can learn and cook dishes are per the instructions given by the chef and at the end of the course, receive a certificate for the same.

While we are all stuck at home, we want to cook some delicious food since we can’t really move out. So it’s best to host one online event for cooking, that’s one of the biggest trend running all over the internet. (You might have heard about Dalgona already!)

2. Art & Music: For The Creativity Lover

Many people fancy the traditional art and craft workshops to learn new forms of art, papercraft, DIY workshops, painting techniques, etc. Online art and craft workshops involve teaching and learning interesting courses like designing, graphics, calligraphy, origami, painting, and many other forms of art.

Much like art, music is very much scientific in its operation in the way the instruments are played. Learning an instrument is no longer a hassle. The Internet now provides online tutorials and music lessons to learn to play various instruments at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Some of these courses are certified too. Many other instruments these days involve technological knowledge like the electric guitars which are taught too.

3. Virtual Open Mic

Usually taking place in small rooms or crowded places, in light of the recent pandemic, events like open mic, storytelling, poetry recitation, etc have gone for a shot. However, Virtual Open Mics have now been taking place where the audience can be listeners and the gig or the participants can share their art with the audience. With a particular time limit for each performer, these virtual open mic events have become quite trendy and loved.

4. Education From Home

The upcoming generation is all about surpassing distance and geographical barriers. The Internet has facilitated education and learning in a seamless manner wherein every keen learner has a supporting teacher providing knowledge virtually. Online classes are now available where the teacher can teach more than 50 students without having to physically meet at one place. This knowledge sharing also occurs across national boundaries. Online certified courses are emerging to hold great value and the Internet now lets you travel across the world, sitting in your room.

Basic programming courses like learning programming languages such as Java and Python are now available through online certified courses. Many tutorials and online guides are also available to teach technological tools and software like Gephi, SEO tools, etc.

5. Sports and Gaming

Gamification is one of the most interesting and upcoming aspects of online events. Gaming is the thing to kill time during this difficult time. The idea of virtual gaming in the form of PubG, FIFA, PlayStation, and all the numerous games that come along, Virtual Gaming is popular, fancied, and endorsed the concept. Virtual sports include sports like Laser Tag, Astro Field, Virtual Reality, and esports. Host your first ever online gaming event to keep up with the trends.

6. Business Events

Business events are also of great significance at this point time. Help people in growing their business and even by hosting seminars that help them to know how to step up after the COVID-19 gets over.
