Purpose of the Virtual Meeting Sponsorship Program
Restrictions on face-to-face gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic have led to countless events being moved online. While webcasts and virtual networking sessions have proven popular with organizers and attendees alike, sponsors have also been interested in how they can get in front of audiences virtually and unique ways they can contribute and stay top of mind with their target audience.
The Minnesota Microsoft 365 User Group (MNCloud LLC) was formed to support the community of Microsoft 365 IT professionals in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Since the beginning, the User Group has been well-attended and strives to add value back into our local community. In the past, our event were in-person only and remote options were not provided as this boosted engagement and interactions. As events moved virtually, our user community has embraced this format and is still one of the highest attended tech events and user group in the Twin Cities.
