Virtual requirements for Online event events are easier than ever before, and with the right tools, you can set up online meetings easily, and let participants contribute to the event successfully.
For a virtual event organizer, there are some requirements to planning your event.
Here today, I’d like to discuss some of the important steps of starting and joining a virtual meeting.
We recommend downloading the “Zoom Client for Meetings” application on the device you want to use at the event.
After installation, the program will open automatically. You have the option of creating a user profile, but this is not necessary to participate in the event.
If possible, use Google Chrome as the browser for the download. Internet Explorer may encounter errors, says Chaktty.
Although there are online events pros and cons, and each online meeting tool has its advantages and disadvantages, the benefits is still more than the drawbacks.
If possible, install the application before the actual event date.
This step only needs to be performed once. The next time you log in, the program will open automatically.
Alternative to installation
Alternatively, you can participate in the event via the web browser without downloading the application.
However, this has the disadvantage that you can only see one discussion participant at a time.
All you have to do is click on the link you received from the NZZ and follow the instructions in your browser window.
You can join the event using a computer, laptop, mobile phone or tablet.
Make sure that you have installed the “Zoom Client for Meetings” app on your desired device.
For a pleasant event experience, Techpally recommend using the strongest possible internet connection. Otherwise, there may be interruptions due to the transmission of videos.
Test your headphones in advance for the best viewing experience.

You will not be able to see the participants via video until the official start of the event.
