How do I plan for audience participations?

Why sponsor the virtual Privacy+Security Forum?
Sponsors will gain access to a large gathering of highly seasoned privacy professionals. If you want to develop business, reconnect with clients, catch up with prospects, and gain exposure in the privacy and security community, then this is the opportunity.
We hope to see many of you at our virtual event and be part on the community we build together. There are limited ways for our community to engage right now; no other ways to speak, to share ideas, to network, to develop business. At our Spring Event, we created a successful way for this to happen.
What are the sponsorship networking opportunities?
Virtual Expo Booths. Exhibiting sponsors can meet with participants throughout the event in a virtual exhibit space. Sponsors can plan activities and even have giveaways that they mail them to people.
Branding. There will be opportunities for branding throughout the virtual event. We will have our PDF schedule and instruction sheets guiding speakers and participants through the event.
Email Exposure. We will feature particular sponsors in our email communication before, during, and after the event by sharing whitepapers and other documents.
Virtual Lunch Tables. Sponsors can sponsor a virtual lunch table and invite folks to their table.
Gift to Selected Participants. Sponsors can send a gift (perhaps a box of chocolates, coffee, snacks, a mug, etc.) to selected participants prior to the event.
Access to Sessions On Demand. Recording will be available after the event for a small fee. If you choose to sponsor a session on-demand, we will make it available to you to share with an even larger audience.
Advertisements. Sponsors can have ads in our guides and other conference pages and documents.
Additional Speaking Opportunities. We can find additional speaking opportunities for sponsors.
Discussion Leader in a Small Group Topical Video Chat. We will be offering numerous small group discussion groups where people can meet for 15-30 mins. These groups will be a great opportunity to generate leads.
Comps. We will provide sponsors a generous number of comps to offer to their colleagues, clients, and friends.
