University Event Services is now offering an array of virtual event services to help support the campus community plan and host university events and programming this year.
How University Event Services Can Help
University Event Services staff have developed specific services to help better produce events through Zoom Meeting, Zoom Webinar, Google Sites and the new Special Event Center Studio Experience. These services are highly professional, user friendly and affordable offerings for all of campus.
These new services support University Event Services’ mission to produce high-quality professional experiences that will benefit students, staff, faculty and the greater Boise State community. Do not be afraid to reach out for help with your next event.
Virtual Event Consultation
University Event Services teams are ready to help re-imagine each event by thinking outside the box and guiding you in the right direction. Sign up for an initial consultation with experienced event coordinators by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zoom Meeting and Zoom Webinar
Whether the event is a smaller networking event or a larger scale presentation, University Event Services can guide users through choosing a platform, configuring the event, and providing management support during the live Zoom virtual experience.
The Special Event Center Studio
The Special Event Center Studio offers users a professional broadcasting experience. In partnership with University Television, this space has been transformed and equipped to produce a seamless livestream production or pre-recorded experience.
Virtual Event Hosting Site
Staff can help organize and create a perfect event hosting platform via Google Sites. In-house site designers are available to help in the early stages through the event finale.
Not Sure Where to Start? Join a Brainstorming Session
To alleviate the stress of developing virtual events from the ground up, Event Services and University Special Events and Protocol are offering virtual event brainstorming sessions geared at internal Boise State folks to learn and spark their own creativity. Below is a list of scheduled times and dates for the brainstorming sessions:
- 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3
- 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11
- 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19
- noon Thursday, Aug. 27
- 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 4
Please note that each brainstorming session is capped at 10 participants, so register ASAP. More brainstorming sessions will be planned and announced for fall.
Event Services staff are willing and eager to help make every Boise State event as engaging and successful virtually as they could have done in-person. University events are pivotal to student success and the Bronco community, so staff are committed to doing all they can to help the community garner the valuable memories and connections events provide as campus events go virtual this fall.
Zoom 101 Session
While many people are comfortable attending a Zoom meeting or webinar, being responsible for the backend management or technical support can seem overwhelming. Join Event Services’ team of event coordinators as they talk through what to expect, how to prepare and most importantly, how to successfully host a Zoom meeting or webinar. The session is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 13.
Additional sessions and topics are in the works. Check the University Event Services website for more information.
