Having produced the physical incarnation fo this event the year before we had to rethink how to hold a 5,000 delegate, 4 day conference, complete with a standard programme of pleneries, sessions, exhibitors and e-posters – all on the centenial annaversary speacial year.
We moved the event online and use a custom platform to house the event. With large numbers of presentations and speakers we scheduled and recorded over 900 presentations, prior to the event before collating them into 180 sessions. We also created sponsor spaces and enabled the audience to engage with the presenters live.
We streamed 7 concurrent channels of sessions, enabled live speaker Q&A after showing pre-recorded presentations, created a virtual exhibitor hall, facilitated delegate networking, restricted access to sessions depending on ticket value and had over 1 million minutes of content watched.
