VO Europe has over 20 years of experience facilitating events. They know they are expected to be at the forefront of new ideas and concepts. Switching to virtual events was a serious task for them, with all the extra components to plan for.
They turned to b2match because of their first conversation with the customer success manager. He was an expert who knew event management well and what the b2match event management software could do to help facilitate the most successful event VO Europe had hosted.
Get insights into the planning and execution of taking an event virtual for the first time.
We had two interviews, one before and after the event, with Matthias Grabner (organizer and director of technology at Advantage Austria).
He honestly told us about the challenges he faced, how they were solved, and what the actual outcome of the event was.
Valuable key-learnings for anyone looking to organize his first virtual event.
Through the combination of a physical and virtual event, both physical & online participation is possible. So participants who cannot visit an event physically (e.g. Coronavirus) can just take part remotely. In the registration process, participants can select their mode of attendance, experience the broadcasted sessions and meet other participants through video meetings.
Barcelona, Spain / Virtual
Due to the Coronavirus, this year's Mobile World Congress was canceled. Organizers of one of the MWC Networking Events decided to keep going and find a solution.
They went for a hybrid event and used virtual meetings as an extension for their physical event, making participation for everyone possible who could not travel to Barcelona because of travel restrictions.
You can organize the entire event workflow for a typical, physical event with b2match.
Different event formats especially benefit from the goal-oriented matchmaking:
Regional Development Events
Research and Innovation Events
Brussels, Belgium / Physical
The organizers were looking for a solution that would allow them to represent their extensive event program of around 112 sessions and workshops with particular formats, taking place over several days, in one single agenda.
b2match offered a filterable event agenda. Since filtering by day, by different parts of this big event and their individual program (topics), was possible, everything came together in a structured and neat way, making it easy for participants to navigate through the program.
