Listening to keynote speakers and other exciting panel discussions are a key component of virtual events. However, an important part of events like these is the ability for attendees to meet and interact with other attendees.
Breakout rooms are a great way to improve interaction amongst the attendees. Breakout rooms are especially useful when you have many teams collaborating on something and then later reconvene.
Apart from this breakout rooms can be used for –
- Mini sessions conducted by experts
- One-on-One training sessions
- Collaboration projects
- A large number of participants
- Online courses – where students can be further divided into smaller groups for discussion
- Live demos with exhibitors and sponsors
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to create and use breakout rooms during online events. Nunify lets you create breakout rooms during webinars through networking tables in which attendees can enter and talk face to face with other attendees, exhibitors, and speakers. Nunify gives the host full control over the look & feel, and availability of the breakout meeting rooms.
