Extend The Audience
Following the 2014 Arts and Audience "Digital Audience Experience" AEN's community manager has been developing an event plug-in package called Extend The Audience. Its purpose is to enable people to attend a curated 'track' of an event to participate in a meaningful manner.

  • Networking with attendee, venue-based and online
  • Hosted video networking and digital breakout rooms
  • Selected speaker presentations via a live stream
  • Exclusive webcast panel discussions with speakers and sponsors using your webcam to join the webcast discussion should you want to ask a question in person.
  • Dedicated venue host facilitating from an event via a web studio.

The potential for extending an audience is tremendous and not limited to the high budget provisions.

Another Equity Online Branch GiveAway - entries close 14th July

This time it's for TEN Equity torches. These branded torches were taken to Glastonbury to and handed out to members performing who visited the Equity 'tent'. I managed to get TEN so here we are with another giveaway. Same as before visit the Online Branch Chat Room thread set up for the giveaway and add your name in the comments.

No planned test of the Fire Alarm today.

For the extended audience, it goes without saying that we have 'no planned outage of the Internet provision at the venue today' but the 'in the case of emergency' does need to be addressed especially if the attendees are paying. It's more a contingency case of 'What we will do if the internet goes down'. The same goes for other occasional inevitabilities with 3rd party providers beyond our control. At last year's High Growth Summit a digital attendee met with a venue attendee at the video networking desk accompanied by Summit speaker Floyd Woodrow where a future meeting was planned and a great conversation took place. Even with the limited technical provision at this proof of concept delivery, it manifested this unplanned but engaged dialogue demonstrating how the Extend The Audience wrapper can bridge the digital divide.

Digital Hustings - It's all part of the Online Branch Experience.

Several of the London Branches have held a series of Hustings events providing an opportunity for committee election candidates to share their perspectives on why they want to stand and as an opportunity for members who are voting to meet the candidates seeking support in getting them elected. Following their lead, we are going to host the Online Branch Hustings on Crowdcast in x6 sessions as follows.
