Virtual events

While the global pandemic was a major catalyst for shifting from in-person to virtual events, Speakers Spotlight has been providing virtual options to our clients since 2009.

Our goal has always been to help our clients find the perfect speaker for their event and audience, no matter the medium.

In March 2020, our team quickly switched gears to not only be trusted advisors in booking the right speaker, but also in booking the right virtual keynote and sourcing the best event platforms, suppliers, etc. It was exciting to help our industry grow and adapt to meet the challenges thrown at us, so that, together, we could continue educating, engaging, and inspiring people all over the world and provide connection when it was needed more than ever.

Today, virtual events have become the new normal, existing alongside in-person events to add additional benefits and means of connection throughout the year. As an industry, we’ve experienced first-hand the benefits of going virtual — lower venue and travel costs; greater accessibility and reach; and quicker, direct feedback and data collection — while also witnessing the evolution of online events. 

By partnering with world-class digital event producers and working alongside our speakers to ensure the quality of their presentations, we’ve helped our clients create virtual events that are interactive, immersive, and customized experiences for their audiences. The formats of these events can be keynotes, panel discussions, fireside chats, interactive Q&As, etc. The options at our disposal are endless. In the first two years of the pandemic, we’ve arranged over 3,500 virtual speaking engagements by more than 400 speakers.
