b2match customers are actively using live stage. Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, hosted The International Conference on Biometrics for Borders. The event goal was to provide a virtual platform for dialogue for decision-makers, project managers, and other practitioners.
They embedded a YouTube live stream code into the b2match platform by simply copy/pasting the code from YouTube. This allowed almost 500 participants to view keynote and other main event sessions. During these main events attendees used the chat function to communicate with one another as they were receiving relevant and important information.
During and in between sessions, participants could also schedule 1:1 meetings to continue the exchange of ideas.
Frontex was able to meet its main event objective of bringing people together to prompt dialogues and get people talking even in these complicated times.
