With all the lockdowns, panic, and infections that have taken place worldwide within a single year, there are a lot of people who are wondering how much all of this is going to last. Similarly, a lot of people have grown accustomed to isolating themselves from the world for a multitude of reasons.
Given this context, we thought about making a list of things that are better left off in the virtual space for the foreseeable future. Yes, we also miss our old lives, but we can also sympathize with those who want to stay as safe as possible. So, without further ado, here we go:
1. Corporate Events:
Given the nature of keynote presentations, conferences, product launches, and other similar events, it is quite safe to say that you’re not missing out on much by participating from a distance.
On the contrary, you’re getting more benefits by participating online because you can do so from the comfort of your own home or from anywhere you wish to stay. As for organizing a corporate event yourself, you can try our virtual event platform to see the numerous advantages you can enjoy.
2. Learning Stuff:
While the way the online school was handled by the authorities is questionable, to say the least, learning practical or vocational skills can be done quite easily online. With a simple Google search, you’ll find that many famous experts are holding masterclasses in their respective domains.
The price of admission can be a little high, but the courses are well-defined and you can definitely learn a lot from them without stepping a foot outside. Needless to say, these types of webinars, workshops, and similar events can prove quite useful in the long run with very few setbacks.
3. Keeping in Touch With Friends From Other Countries:
If you’ve been an Erasmus student or if you’ve participated in any events that involved people from multiple countries, then we’re fairly sure you miss them a lot. While a physical meetup is the most fun way to get back with them, sometimes the better option is to create a virtual conference with them.
Fortunately, there are a lot of ways you can do this for free, regardless of distance. All everyone needs is a stable internet connection and a basic smartphone or laptop. Yes, we know, it’s not the ideal way to do such a thing, but it’s convenient and it’s the next best thing given the pandemic scenario that we all went through.
4. Book Club Events
Bookworms aren’t all that social, to begin with. Or at least that’s how the stereotype goes. We think going to book clubs is healthy in the sense that you get to meet with like-minded people. However, given the current context, we also believe that organizing such an event strictly online is the best option for a multitude of reasons.
First off, the speaker can say what’s on their mind without being distracted and without having to deal with possible social anxiety or stage fright. Secondly, the listeners can pitch in their ideas in the chatbox so that they don’t have to interrupt what the speaker is saying. And, finally, participants are able to bring references much easier to the table thanks to how virtual events and the online fieldwork are in tandem.
