How do you take an event, specifically crafted to be high-impact, high-energy, high-touch AND in person into the virtual world, without losing its big energy and zest? Many say it can’t be done, but that didn’t stop Teri Carden, Co-Founder of 100Reviews and creator of the Non Dues-a-Palooza event, from trying. 

The Non Dues-a-Palooza (NDP) Conference was designed to bring associations innovative ideas and products for diversifying revenue streams. NPD was supposed to take place in Nashville in April 2020. Nashville closed down in March, so Teri decided to delay the event. 

But during this pandemic, when thousands of association events have been disrupted, Teri decided Non Dues-a-Palooza and the non-dues revenue conversation was more important than ever. So she moved her event online, called it the Non Dues-a-Palooza Virtual Bazaar, teamed up with BeSpeake Virtual Meeting Platform and together they committed to crafting an engaging experience for the attendees that provided killer content, lasting connections, and a whole lot of fun. 

How did she do it? Join Teri Carden and Joanna Pineda, CEO of Matrix Group, makers of the BeSpeake Virtual Meeting Platform, for a behind-the-scenes poolside chat. They’ll dive into what it took to pull off a successful virtual event, and the lessons learned along the way. They’ll share:  
  • How the Virtual Bazaar was born

  • Planning process from start to finish

  • Decision points along the way

  • Adding handcrafted touches

  • During Event Lessons - the good, bad, and ugly

  • What's Next

Join us to get the inside scoop.
