There is so much value in connecting over a business lunch, yet there are times where schedules simply don’t align or travel isn’t possible. Instead you opt for a virtual meeting – and worry that you may not be able to make the same connection that a business lunch offers. But what if you can? Imagine the doorbell ringing at the office of a potential client, partner or event attendee – reminding them that your meeting is about to begin with the delivery of their favorite lunch and setting the stage to virtually “break bread.” 

At JSA we are making this possible with the introduction of JSA’s newest virtual event service:  ‘Virtual Meet and Eats.’

So how does it work? 

The JSA Events team works with you to identify a targeted list of contacts to attend your web, audio or video conference. As part of JSA’s virtual event services, JSA can also provide access to its own Zoom or GoToWebinar platform if needed, and manage registration, invitation design and promotion, including social, email, text reminders and more. Once participants confirm, JSA will send them each a confirmation email with a link to choose their lunch from local restaurants, which are then delivered shortly before the meeting starts. If the attendee lives in a remote location, a restaurant gift card will be offered instead. 

‘Meet and Eats’ is available as a stand-alone service or can be added to any of JSA’s existing turnkey virtual event management services, which include live-streaming virtual keynotes/roundtables/presentations, webinars, virtual press conferences, podcast broadcasts, post-trade show outreach, direct one-on-one prospect meetings and more. The JSA Events team is also available to quickly and seamlessly manage all the details of an event format change from in-person to digital, particularly in light of recent travel restrictions and the growing Coronavirus concerns.

Increase Meeting Attendance and Engagement with ‘Virtual Meet and Eats’

JSA’s ‘Virtual Meet and Eats’ product announcement comes immediately following our highly successful January and February Virtual Roundtables.  

“Our recent results were extraordinary,” states Jaymie Scotto Cutaia, CEO of JSA. “We’ve been providing these monthly Virtual Roundtables for several years now, attracting on average 30 registrants per Roundtable in 2019. This new year however, by promoting that we will provide a free lunch on JSA for the first 100 registrants to our Roundtables, we attracted 197 registrants to our January event, and 137 registrants to our February event.  Additionally we retained over 95% of our audience for both 45-minute virtual panel discussions. The over 500% increase in registrations, and a continual level of engagement level, coupled with the need now to travel less yet still network and share ideas across our business community, led us to immediately roll out this virtual event lunch incentive to our data center, tech and telecom clients for their virtual gatherings.”
