"Unleash the magic of your in-person event by incorporating a Remote Host! Not only does this open doors to exciting new possibilities, it also turns up the volume on fun, ensuring an amplified experience for everyone involved. Now that's what we call a game-changer!"

Having a remote host for your in-person event can bring numerous benefits. In this article, we will explore what a remote host is and how it can enhance your event experience. Read on to discover the advantages, features, and importance of having a remote host for your next event.

Before 2020, the phrase "Remote Host" was not commonly used. However, due to the global pandemic, virtual events have become essential for fostering team bonding. Now, it is the new norm to have an experienced presenter, known as a Remote Host, to lead team activities.

Looking ahead to Summer 2021, we witnessed the long-awaited return of in-person events and the reunions of colleagues. In light of the persistent disruptions caused by the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Wildgoose introduced a novel alternative: the Remote Host. As time went on, we couldn't help but ponder if we had stumbled upon a brilliant concept that could continue to offer a valuable solution for event delivery, even beyond the current threat of COVID-19.

Here are some key advantages of using a Remote Host for your upcoming in-person team-building activity:

1. Anytime, anywhere:

Leveraging our global network of experienced presenters established during the pandemic, Wildgoose gained the flexibility to conduct in-person events anywhere in the world, at any time of day. Whether you're in New York or London, someone can run your event seamlessly.

2. Short notice? No problem:

Thanks to our expanded network of global Remote Hosts, Wildgoose can offer virtually unlimited capacity. In fact, we guarantee availability if you book more than two weeks in advance, and you can even secure your booking online with just 48 hours' notice. The idea of having such a short notice period pre-2020 was unthinkable, but now it's the new norm.

3. Flexibility for postponements:

Since we don't need to arrange travel and accommodation for our Remote Hosts, we can provide you with the freedom to reschedule your event with 7+ days' notice at no additional cost. Pretty great, right?

4. A guaranteed host for your event:

Ever wondered what would happen if your host fell ill the night before your event? With our Remote Hosts, we can easily replace your host without any disruption to your event.

5. Carbon neutral:

Choosing a Remote Host means less CO2 emissions in the atmosphere since our hosts don't need to travel. We all have a responsibility to reduce our CO2 footprint, and this is one simple way to make a positive environmental impact. Additionally, any unavoidable CO2 emissions generated during the event delivery are offset by Wildgoose!

6. Exceptional value:

The costs associated with travel, accommodation, and expenses add up quickly and are passed directly to you, the client. By utilizing a Remote Host, you'll reduce your budget spend in these areas, allowing you to allocate more resources to other aspects of your event.

7. Guaranteed service level:

Our Remote Hosts will digitally join your meeting room, office, or even your smartphone to deliver an outstanding briefing. Throughout the event, they'll track your progress online, score your creative challenges, message the teams, and troubleshoot when necessary. Finally, for the results session, you can rejoin the video call, creating a hilarious finale to your event!

Incorporating a Remote Host into your in-person event brings numerous benefits, unlocking new possibilities and amplifying the experience for all involved.
