    Virtual Events: What's coming up and which is best?

    As we have seen over the past few weeks, events and conferences have been cancelled to protect those who would have been attending from having to be in a public place, and it will be a long time before this industry can get back to where it once was. The events industry still wants consumers to get the information they need, and so some have turned to virtual events to implement this.

    But what events are out there and which are relevant to your business?

    Here at Blend, we are always happy to help Shopify merchants to get the best out of their business, so we have put together a list of what we think will be the most useful and productive events coming up over the forthcoming weeks.

    Tips for getting the best from online and virtual events

    It is not always easy to know exactly what you want to get out of the event, so we have put together some handy tips to help you out:

      • Make a list beforehand of what you want to find out during the event/webinar, or what questions you want to ask if it is an interactive workshop
      • Make quick notes whilst it is happening but don’t try and copy all of the information word for word as you may miss something said by the host or a contributor that is important
      • If there is anything you don’t understand during the webinar, or if you think of further questions, jot these down and email the host afterwards for the answers - it is pointless attending if you don’t fully understand what was being said
      • Most hosts will offer to send some links afterwards for further information, or may even send the slides from their presentation, but if they don’t then contact them afterwards to get a copy of these - that way you can refer back to the points raised at a later date
