Before Covid-19, Audio Visual arrangements for Annual General Meeting (AGM) were straightforward and simple. Now, it’s even more simple and straightforward!
Recall when you had to book for a venue, arrange for the AV, handouts, gifts, refreshments, transportations among many other things. Yes, they are not complicated tasks, however, the effort and time you have to spend are huge.
Virtual Annual General Meeting became very popular due to Covid-19 during 2020. Now, most AGMs are virtual and making everybody’s life easier.
Completely Virtual AGM
Nobody might have thought of conducting an AGM from their living room but it is a new normal in 2021. The Chairman, the CEO, and Directors can all connect using their webcam-enabled devices from their homes for the AGM. The auditors, stockholders, and invited guests can all connect virtually from their homes or offices. This is very convenient and hassle-free for all stakeholders.
The risk or down-side of going completely virtual is the internet connection and unforeseen technical issues but again, this is extremely rare as you’ll be doing rehearsals and technical checks well beforehand.
On-site AGM (Hybrid)
Usually, on-site AGMs are hybrid since the main speakers, the Chairman and the CEO are on-site at a venue (such as a meeting room in your office) with a professional camera and audio arrangement while other directors join remotely from their offices or homes. Just like the image above is showing.
Audiovisual arrangements are all covered by the on-site crew ensuring the AGM is all smooth and professional without any issue. Again, prior rehearsals and technical checks with the remote directors are crucial.
To sum up, virtual AGMs are a new norm nowadays and the good thing is it’s very simple and straightforward if you use the correct teams and right tools.
