PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (PRWEB) September 18, 2020
365 MEDIA (http://www.365MEDIA.com), a 20-year innovator in the online media and virtual events industry whose clients have included media powerhouses such as VNU/Nielsen, McGraw Hill, Tarsus and Summit, has announced the relaunch of the organization to focus on their new virtual event playbooks and services – a revolutionary offering designed to help associations, nonprofits and industry organizations maximize growth potential. 365 MEDIA will be led by virtual event strategist and media industry veteran, RD Whitney.
The robust offering includes customized playbooks for strategizing world-class virtual events, increasing audience engagement and business community growth, and creating market-specific training, e-learning and certification programs. 365 MEDIA will also offer a turn-key set of services for virtual event set-up and stage management, community building and audience list development, all developed and executed by what 365 MEDIA calls “the best team of events specialists available anywhere in the world.” Consisting of credentialed professionals with deep backgrounds in event organization, live, virtual and hybrid events, online community development, and online marketing, the 365 MEDIA team is poised to help clients realize new business growth opportunities quickly and cost-effectively through the virtual events medium.
365 MEDIA is now headed by events industry veteran RD Whitney, who offers a long track record in establishing, managing and delivering online business community solutions across many markets and industries. He has launched and managed five successful national certification programs, and has 30 years of experience developing business communities that bring buyers and sellers together through professional training, events (in-person and virtual), education, peer learning and analytics. A strong advocate for the potential for virtual events, Whitney sees enormous opportunities for nonprofits and associations whose only communication option during COVID-19 has been the virtual platform.
“Almost every leader I know is facing the challenge of engaging their customers in a virtual environment. For many organizations, this is an immediate and critical option for continuity and staying connected to their communities. Our virtual event playbooks and management services can help them create new revenue streams and expand those communities well beyond expectations,” Whitney asserts. “Our team of experts will help organizations transform their virtual events program into a wellspring for long-term growth and a hybrid future!”
Prior to the official launch, 365 MEDIA had already formed meaningful partnerships with prominent associations, association management firms, and B2B event media groups looking to add more rocket fuel to their virtual events and related services in this “new normal.”
“In spite of all the anxiety and disruptions caused by the COVID-19 crisis, the virtual events platform will be a real game-changer for so many organizations,” said John Tilly, founder and chairman of 365 MEDIA. “Some groups are already experiencing dramatic spikes in their market developments and revenues. It will be exciting to witness the positive influence that 365 MEDIA will have on the association, non-profit and media world, with this new leadership and focus. Clients have already told me that they feel like they’re gaining significant traction even before the broadcast of their virtual events.”
