We’re talking about virtual events so engaging and enthralling, you’d think you were meeting face-to-face.
At Centrifuge, we’ve discovered a fantastic formula that’s easily manipulated to cater to you. Every single detail is customizable – from the cohesive platforms hosting the event to the minute intricacies of the lower third graphics.
Just because virtual is the safe option for meeting in a world where health protocols and comfort levels constantly vary by state, country, region, company and person – doesn’t mean it can’t be an exciting option.
Visit Our Virtual Showcase
You can stroll through the elements of our virtual events by visiting our virtual showcase, then come back here for the breakdown of why we do it this way.
Oh – by the way, we can build a custom virtual showcase to be integrated into your event, too. Use it for breakout educational sessions, training opportunities or as a hub for event content – the showcase is your oyster!
It Starts Like Any Other Event
Don’t be fooled – virtual events may look and feel different, but that doesn’t mean we’ve completely rewritten the playbook. Centrifuge continues to provide Strategic Services to define meeting goals and develop a solid event roadmap to ensure your virtual meeting is on course every step of the way.
The same goes for our Production Services and Creative Services, all working together to guarantee every visual inch of the event drives branding and messaging, exceeding your meeting objectives in an aesthetically pleasing and high-tech way.

How Is It Better?
Utilizing Broadcast Psychology
When you watch the evening news, you’re not directly a part of the program yet you’re still interested and engaged. We take that same approach to virtual events – with some added flair.
In addition to our in-house team members with more than two decades of experience in television news markets across the United States, we’ve teamed up with a long-time professor at the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media to enhance your event by leveraging the principles and best practices of broadcast media. This includes offering on-camera performance development.
Just Like a Newscast
We’ll develop a visual narrative of segmented presentations, on-screen graphics, video content and interviews to cater to the limited attention span of a remote learner. Streamlining the agenda and optimizing the ‘show flow’ ensures content is delivered clearly and intentionally.
We also bring in celebrities and influencers for levity, keynote speakers, establish branded ‘talk shows’ to reiterate messaging, hold interactive social activities and provide other networking opportunities.
A professional host/emcee keeps the entire event on track, like a news anchor. This person alleviates the burden of transitioning between segments and presenters and can work with on-the-fly updates and changes. Read more about the importance of using an emcee here.
The Smallest Details Are in Creative
Our incredible creative team is unquestionably the busiest department at our office in Raleigh since virtual and hybrid events began.
Why? Creative is quintessential in making virtual meetings come to life on your computer screen. Not just in slides, but in the smallest details like logo animations, lower thirds for titles, branding and ingenious visual ways to convey your messaging. They’re also our video gurus, working with your people, and often patients, to provide compelling content for attendees.
