ALT Capital Partners Launch Event 2018

Client Banner 1ALT Capital Partners, a private equity market firm established to assist local and international investors tap into the Africa Rising phenomenon, embraced the highly-innovative and locally developed Flock Eventing Platform at its launch in Johannesburg this month (July 2018), and we were honoured to be a part of it by providing the RSVP Management and Mobile App for attendees.

Standing out was the download rate and interactivity experienced on the app component of the platform: a remarkable 76% of guests downloaded the app, and there was an exceptionally high level of interactivity amongst the audience posing questions directly to the speakers through the app during the event, and the speaker sessions being accessed more than 540 times in the 4 hour event. 

Commenting on the platform’s flexibility and robustness, ALT Capital Partners founder and CEO, Ben Kodisang, said the firm could “not have done better than partnering with Flock”. Here is Ben's testimonial below

“When ALT Capital Partners embarked on Defining Conviction and Defying Convention it could not have done better than Partnering with Flock on its inaugural launch event. From cradle to grave Flock demonstrated creativity, tenacity, empathy, responsiveness, proactivity and passion in delivering an event management platform that differentiated ALT Capital from the industry convention.
Honour and privileged to experience such professionalism. Fact that they’re nice people, was just the icing on top of the cake”

Thank you ALT Capital Partners for letting us be a part of your successful event!

Eventing trends for your Millennial guests

35% of event attendees are now Millennials. This percentage is slowly increasing, so it’s more important than ever to ensure that your events cater to their needs. Your aim should be to create better experiences, ensure maximum enjoyment, and generate sharing momentum from each event.

How to create a mobile-centric event (and why you should)

We’re firmly entrenched in the age of mobile. We work, play, and do everything in between on the device in the palm of our hands. Thanks to the fact that there’s an app for everything under the sun, our mobile phones have become an integral part of our lives. In fact, eMarketer reportsthat mobile apps account for a whopping 90% of time spent on our phones.

But what does this mean for event managers who’re tasked with ensuring their event is engaging enough for even the most ardent mobile phone user? The answer is simple: instead of fighting the mobile-first mindset, embrace it.

Live Stream your event

One of our current favourite trends being mentioned in the industry is Live Streaming Events, and we have a couple of reasons why we love it. Live Streaming is about being able to record one (or multiple) sessions at events, and having those streamed live to an online platform that is integrated with a channel where attendees can access this live stream.

The reality is, you probably aren’t the only one thinking that, and the good news is that we have a solution!
