Virtual Event Auctioneer Resources

You’ve rocked events on stage for years—getting audiences fired up, keeping track of bidding, and helping non-profit organizations raise more money for their causes. Now you manage livestream events or hybrid situations where some guests are in-person and others are watching from home. Good thing you’re quick on your feet! And good thing you have Qtego. Our tools and support make your pivot to the role of virtual event auctioneer so much easier.

Emcee Screen

Every virtual event auctioneer needs a confidence monitor—and Qtego’s Emcee Screen is just that. See real-time bidding and donating information at a glance whether you’re on stage or behind the camera.

Virtual Auction Management

Sell an item multiple times just like you do at an in-person event. Let the audience know you have more items available and use bid history to pull up the next highest bidders. Qtego confirms and adds items to carts behind the scene so you don’t miss a beat.

And yes! With Qtego you can still use bidder paddles for hybrid events.

Virtual Fund-a-Need Tips

With QSite, Qtego’s one-screen solution to virtual fundraising events, a virtual event auctioneer can use a donation crawler to motivate donors to give more—just like you would at an in-person event.

Use your Emcee Screen to keep track of donations in real time so you can thank bid donors as they give.

Virtual Event Auctioneer Timing

Keeping up with timing differences due to streaming service latency doesn’t have to be a headache. Qtego’s countdown timer shows up on the QSite, for in-person bidding, and on your Emcee Screen. Qtego uses time stamps to keep things fair, but the countdown timer lets you alert at-home guests when bidding or donations are closing to account for any time lags.
