BFBS Crew covering a live event

BFBS
Virtual Events

BFBS has been delivering live events for the UK armed forces and defence community for decades. In more recent years, we have also established an award-winning video production team as part of BFBS Creative. So in these difficult times, where live events have had to be postponed or cancelled, we have been on hand to create a compelling virtual alternative.

From commemorative events like the Royal Navy’s Admiralty Carol Service and the RAF’s Runnymede Memorial service, to the Soldiering On Awards, football matches, conferences, webinars, and celebrity Facebook Live sessions, we can help you retain that all-important engagement and connection with your audiences – even when you can’t bring them together in person.

Live Studio Packages

Our live studio being used

Live Streaming Made Simple

2020 was a weird (and rubbish) year wasn't it.  However you look at it, the world shifted and how we all work changed.  Live events, awards ceremonies, corporate meetings were all cancelled or moved to platforms like Zoom - with varying degrees of success.

With the prevalence of live digital events growing, we are thrilled to be able to offer out our brand new BFBS Creative Studio Packages – a one stop solution to all your broadcast needs.

From live awards ceremonies to broadcasting social media events, we’ve got you covered.

We’re all about simplicity and transparency, so to make your life as easy as possible we offer standard, tiered pricing with optional extras that can be bolted on to create a more customised package for your event.

Whatever The Occasion, We've Got You Covered

Awards Ceremonies

2020 was the year that awards ceremonies went digital.  But getting that right is really difficult.

You still want a sense of occasion.  For your ceremony to be a grand event. 
But how do you manage that via video call?

Our studio space allows for a physical ceremony to be held, hosted by a professional BFBS Presenter and streamed to any number of platforms - from Facebook to Twitch.

With a number of professionally produced video packages included in our standard costing, we'll give your event the digital polish it deserves.

Corporate Events

With more of us working remotely, grasping your corporate identity and being able to engage with your workforce is more important than ever, but without being able to host large-scale conferences or town hall meetings, it's difficult to effectively energise teams through monotonous video calls.  Let's be honest, a team conference doesn't have the same impact or sense of occasion on a video call does it?

  • Energise your workforce with a dynamic, polished event
  • Show your teams that you're taking your commitment to internal comms seriously
  • Differentiate from the dozens of other video calls people will have each week

What Does It Cost?

We're committed to providing transparent pricing that gives our clients brilliant value for money.  Our packages are listed below but if you want to discuss a more bespoke solution, please get in touch and we'll work out how we can help you make your event a success.

BFBS has also produced virtual events to enable the armed services to mark important military commemorative occasions. We have done this as part of our charitable offering and can discuss options with you where appropriate.
