The people in the room may not be the only ones watching your event live.  The advent of Facebook Live, Periscope and other streaming apps has ushered in a whole new element that can potentially transform live events, in ways both good and bad. Smart planners need to adapt to these changes quickly in order to guide their clients on how each individual meeting or event should deal with live-streaming.

For some events, you may embrace live-streaming as a great way to dramatically scale awareness. For others, it poses a distinct threat to an event's privacy, exclusivity, or revenue. How do you navigate the options available to bringing your event or meeting to a broader audience? How do you prevent someone from live-streaming a closed-door session? This class will empower you to make sound streaming decisions, design best for streaming impact, select the right equipment and platforms to broadcast with, and know what legal pitfalls there are. In a world where every occurrence is being captured, you have to know how to ride the live stream wave.
