As with most other event production companies all of our work has been cancelled for the next few months.  We are seeing some clients look to August for a few re-bookings.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that the virus runs its course and we can get back to business by then. This year we celebrate 20 years in business and are hoping to get past this so we can celebrate another 20 more.

Empower Adventures

We created a free Distance Learning digital workshop (meant for parents teaching at home and educators focused on e-learning with the current situation) and are almost finalized on a corporate team building program via Zoom.  If you think that any of these would be helpful for  any of your other partners, let me know and I can get the info over to you. Otherwise, we’re just laying low for the time being, playing it by ear.

We’ll be rolling out at-home activity videos, as well as a campaign that drives messages of home.  I’ll be sure to send over that info, particularly the latter one, as I think there may be some great traction we can get there.

All of our digital services & free resources are available here: https://leadwithempower.com/services/digital-experiences/. There’s a path with information appropriate for youth/education and a section for corporate offerings.

That’s why we decided to offer a 25% discount off the printing of any piece that someone would like to print, that’s related to COVID-19. This could be a mailing to businesses, to let them know what’s going on at VTB, or brochures or signs concerning what your hours or expectations are for the next few weeks or months.  (813) 228-8800

DCE Productions

DCE Productions did establish a Digital Solutions business unit 5 years ago to specifically to deliver virtual event services.

That business has grown significantly year-over-year. While our in-person event productions have subsided, we are managing a spike in demand for virtual services.

For example:

  • Today we facilitating a 2-day virtual event for the CDC in Atlanta. We’ve been managing streaming and conferences, public hearings, etc. for them for 5 years.
  • We’re working with several planners that are moving multiple day conferences to all-virtual events within the next 60 days.
  • We recently recorded 20 concurrent breakout room – 5 sessions per day – for 3 days and published all content to the cloud in real time.

Of course, we ideally want to see in-person events return asap. When that happens, we expect most events will require a virtual experience element, and we are ready for that.
