Bringing experiences alive in the virtual world – ET BrandEquity

The Covid-19 pandemic has proven to be the most effective chief transformation officer in the business world. Corporations, businesses and brands the world over are resetting and shaping a new hybrid existence for people – employees and consumers, that fuses together our real and virtual realms, and how we interact with each other in the in-between.

Lives confined to screens and being tethered to the Internet, however, have caused ‘virtual fatigue’ that is making the job of marketers harder with each passing day. As the novelty of #WFH and living a digital life wears off, it raises several questions for people who design and craft all kinds of brand experiences and events from conferences to concerts. How do you successfully pivot from real life to virtual and live? What does a winning hybrid strategy look like and how do you craft one? How do you create truly engaging and immersive experiences and events in the virtual world? How do you decode the 3 Ps of virtual experiences – Platforms, People, Profit? The need for real answers to these questions about the virtual experience market is most necessary right now. On November 24, at ‘Digital Day – Decoding Digital Experience’, a conclave organised by the industry body Event & Entertainment Management Association (EEMA), we will get answers to these key questions with leadership insights and solutions to help the experience makers of today and tomorrow.
