How We’re Operating As A Company In Response
Streaming as an alternative
Orange Photography has not been shielded from the multitude of conferences and events cancelling in the wake of the pandemic. As a result of the loss of demand and need for event coverage, we’re offering streaming services so organizations can still reach viewers and get their messages out, even if they won’t be able to hold face-to-face meetings with the audiences. With much of the world coming to a complete lockdown, a communications strategy is more important than ever. The uses for streaming can range everywhere from meetings and trainings, live product launches, to broadcasting seminars or presentations.
Instead of completely shutting down an event or conference, which likely took a lot of time and resources to prepare, streaming is a very useful option for organizations to put out important information and gives a more human experience that people prefer seeing over plain text. We can even provide live streaming where you can present in real time and direct the live feed onto any social channels. It’s also very easy to set up, without distracting and cumbersome cables that can stretch across rooms, all it requires is a tripod or surface to stand on and a line of sight the highlighted activity. In today’s technologically advanced world where audiences want to consume media and information on demand when they want and where they want, streaming and live video is a way for businesses can expand their reach and the shelf life of their events.
Companies like Deloitte Global, Lululemon, Nasdaq, and Nikon Inc. are already transitioning to live streaming. You can leverage the same technology for your needs as well and at a more moderate level.
How is the Events Industry Responding?
Concern among health professionals
The pandemic no doubt has hit the events industry very hard. With all the cancellations, all planners and vendors will have a very hard time in the coming weeks until the situation gets under control. According to an MPI survey in mid-February, 34 percent of meetings professionals are extremely concerned about the effect coronavirus will have on the industry, while 56 percent are slightly concerned. Their main reasons for concern include attendee cancellations and lower attendance, travel disruptions, and speaker cancellations or difficulty in finding speakers. But the resulting effect is the huge financial loss from these factors.
