Virtual Event? Bring in the Megaphone

by | Sep 25, 2020 | Megaphone Updates, StreamClick, StreamClick Events, Streaming | 0 comments

In a virtual world of Zoom fatigue and endless video calls, how do organizations communicate with the communities they serve? Look no further than the Local Media Association, who have re-written the playbook with next generation Virtual Events.

LMA recently announced the Word in Black initiative with publishers of 10 leading newspapers in America intending to reimagine the Black Press and foster solutions for racial inequities in America. However, there was one small challenge. How do we bring the conversation to communities around the country and create a virtual event that isn’t just another Zoom call?

Megaphone TV brings in tools and technology for this event which otherwise would be out of reach. It has the technology to allow panelists to join in a ‘broadcast style’ event from their webcams and includes a professional technical director and graphics to make virtual events feel like broadcasts.
— Steve Baron, LMA Chief Strategy Officer

If you’d like to participate or be a sponsor of this event, please let the LMA know.
