Part of what is missing in virtual events in comparison to physical events is often the ability to make the entire event venue “yours”. Virtual event platforms tend to be generic or unbranded which doesn’t necessarily work negatively against your event, but it is a missed opportunity to add a bit of sparkle to the experience.
As you may know by now, we are well into providing Virtual Events – through Mobile Event Apps to Event Websites (which we’ve been doing for years!) – but now everything can be even more neatly packaged for an Online Event experience that your attendees will love.
We’ve done a few upgrades to our system to better cater for a better online experience, as follows:
Flock Eventing Platform was thrilled to assist the Gauteng SMME Summit host their annual event virtually for the first time.
The annual summit is hosted by the Gauteng Department of Economic Development.
The SMME Summit, held over two days in February this year, aims to help create access to information, financial assistance and access to markets for township-based businesses in the province.
We have reviewed research and blogs, articles and white papers on what makes certain events – some from more than 10 years back – stand out above all the rest. We’ve taken some of those, together with our favourite ideas in the events industry and smashed them all together to give you insight into the recipe that makes your events become favourites amongst your guests, with increased attendance and sky-high reviews. Whether your event is corporate or casual, it will be one that will definitely get attention. Common themes include emotions, networking with like-minded people to create connections, and incorporating a pleasant, unexpected surprise.
Gamification has always been a big part of the event industry, but this trend has been accelerated as virtual and hybrid events have increased in popularity. It is important to understand what exactly gamification is to truly understand how this tactic can enhance your virtual event.
If organising an end of year function has you in hives, fear not. Whether you’re planning an end of year shindig for your employees, or are orchestrating an end of the year soirée on behalf of a company, our tips below will help you to create an event that’ll be remembered for years to come.
What do you do when a global corporation wants an on-demand solution for their multi-day event? Add to that requests for high engagement and activity, to keep hundreds of attendees informed and delighted throughout, with high security measures – it’s by no means a simple task.
The Flock team had to create an all-encompassing solution to provide members with event info, enable networking, and gain real-time feedback by engaging in live polls, live discussions, and feedback sessions throughout this Virtual Event.
