Verizon Media is making virtual events better by telling a great story. They are shifting to a B-to-B-to-C strategy to break through the noise.

Session Highlights Include:

Insight #1 – GETTING HANDS-ON WITH TECHNOLOGY

How Verizon is using technology to enhance the online event experience.
Verizon is using virtual events to open new opportunities to get technology into people’s hands and make the experience more personal. They are expanding their reach by hosting demos online to showcase their accessibility platform. At an in-person event they would be talking about the platform, but online they can highlight its features and create an experience.

Insight #2 - ACCESSIBLE EVENTS FOR ALL

Accessibility is a key part of Verizon's event strategy.
Verizon is committed to making events accessible to all, whether it be in person or digital events. For those with sight impairments, the brand is making events accessible through the Be My Eyes app. It makes content easy to interpret for those with disabilities. To create deeper human-to-human connections, they use the app at live and virtual events to enhance learning and implement accessibility.

Kevin is the eternal optimist. "Events aren't going away anytime soon. We are at a challenging but innovative and inspiring time to rethink everything. It's a great place to be."
