Hosting Virtual Events: Tips & Insights from Virtual River Rally

Connecting people is a key element of how River Network and groups across the national network of water protectors carry out our missions. In 2020, COVID-19 forced many of us to move our long-planned meetings and conferences to a virtual space, introducing a steep learning curve to figure out how to plan and host digital events that are inclusive, engaging,and impactful.

We learned a great deal through planning and hosting Virtual River Rally 2020, a three-week long virtual conference that attracted over 500 participants. While your event will likely look different than ours, and there are many resources emerging in this space, we hope these recommendations and lessons learned can assist other groups in decision making, event and conference planning, and ensuring inclusion across digital programs.
