MC and Live Event Social Broadcast Interviews

Social media event solutions are perfect for award gala ceremonies, business summits and industry conferences. The social media coverage will be posted on all of your social media pages in real-time to create a buzz throughout the event and expose more people, purpose and place to those involved in your event, especially sponsors.


In addition to this, an event hashtag can be promoted to attendees throughout the event, including conducting interviews with speakers and providing real-time announcements as the event progresses.


Live interviews with winners and keynotes speakers during your coverage of the event means we will also capture hours of content such as interviews, product demos, entertainers, and Q&A sessions with keynote speakers and panellists, who will answer audience questions from the floor and hours of B-roll footage of your conference reception or dinner service and much more!
