Flock Empowers Global Pet Food Company to Host Virtual Event

This month, we’ve had the privilege of facilitating an innovative virtual event for a global pet food company, through a partnership with Solutions Group Events. The kick-off conference and award ceremony was a huge success with attendees logged in from all over SA to enjoy the online festivities.

The aim of the event was to give the organisation’s SA based staff the opportunity to learn more about the global pet food giant, encourage local SA leadership teams and allow staff to network safely though the online virtual conference platform.

The Cyber Security Ecosystem and Online Events

The importance of cyber security cannot be stressed enough, especially in today’s world where most of our business and sensitive data is captured online. Many of us have no idea how, or where, our data gets stored. We provide our personal information — name, email address and cell phone number — at the drop of a hat, but where is it going? Who has control over all of our private information?

“At Flock, we believe in using event tech to help our clients create meaningful connections with their audience but are also very aware of the importance of data protection. Which is why myself and the team stay up-to-date and speak to experts to help inform our clients, attendees and guests on the best cyber security practices,” says Mike Lysko, Founder and CEO of Flock Eventing Platform.

Event Tech: Extended Reality and the Future of Events

We live in a world where reality is no longer just what we see in front of us. We no longer have to rely on our senses to govern our experience of things, as technology allows us to create sensations that mimic the real thing so well, that we often aren’t able to tell the difference.

Extended Reality technology has transformed the virtual, live and hybrid event space. Using these revolutionary technologies, event planners now have the ability to digitally enhance guests' environments, transport them to a whole new space and even allow them to interact with holographic objects. These cutting-edge technologies will help you create an unforgettable experience for your guests, no matter where in the world they are tuning in from.

Top Tips to Create an Effective Event Strategy

Events, both online and physical, have a lot of moving parts and can be a pain to organise and run smoothly. Think of event professionals as marionettists — pulling strings to make sure the event comes together as one. From building the event website, deciding which software to use, designing the event branding to sending out invitations, event planners have a million things to think about.

Events require impeccable planning, but they also need to be executed effectively, to ensure all information is accurately documented, and everyone involved leaves the event feeling satisfied.  As an event planner, an event strategy is an essential part of executing an effective event.

How Event Data Can Help You Execute Epic Events

Event planners are starting to use event data and analytics more and more to host events that are people-centered and audience-relevant.

Using data that you’ve gathered from guests via event apps, email correspondence and from online behaviour is an incredible way to learn more about the types of people that would be interested in your events and your brand.  Such data also provides you with the insights to continue giving current event customers what they want and find useful.
