Who: 5,000 Marketing and Sales Professionals
Event: RevGrowth Account Based Engagement
While 2020 is in the past, virtual events are here to stay as we slowly progress to world of in-person events. To kick off Q1 of 2021, the team at Drift were planning their first RevGrowth of the year and looking to make changes to their event platform.
What makes Drift’s events unique, starts with the registration process. Directly on their site and with the help from their bot, Drift bots easily integrate with Goldcast through Marketo for an easy and seamless registration process.
Once you receive your confirmation email from the Goldcast platform, you can access the event immediately and add not only the full agenda to your calendar, but you can also add individual sessions depending on which content is more important you.
Who: Hopin Virtual Platform, with 800 internal GitLab team members across the globe over 4 days
Event: Peak Performance SKO 2021
GitLab’s Peak Performance SKO event was structured with opening and closing activities and presenting important company messaging through sessions and breakouts over the course of 4-days.
With many platforms available, having experience with Hopin was a great advantage for this event. Knowing how to best utilize the platform and what areas would work best for the activities ensured the attendee experience would be easy and enjoyable.
For the morning sessions, having the cooking and yoga classes pre-recorded made for simpler execution and allowed us to show each class multiple times throughout the week. Having pre-recorded content meant stricter and earlier deadlines for deliverables and ensuring all content was ready to go for the scheduled streaming time.
Who: Hopin Virtual Platform, with 1,000+ Scylla Database users and customers from across the globe
Event: Scylla Summit 2021
Scylla Summit featured more than 30 main stage sessions across the first two event days, from Scylla’s internal team of engineers – including keynotes from Dor Laor (CEO & Co-Founder) and Avi Kivity (CTO) – as well as Scylla users and industry experts including Jepsen, Expedia Group and Ticketmaster.
We set-up a series of training calls and demo sites within Hopin for the ‘Lounge’ hosts and Trainers to ensure they felt familiar and confident with the virtual site and its functionalities in advance of the live event itself.
The virtual world of events is still very new not only to attendees, but to speakers and some of our clients too, so investing time and resources into equipping them with the necessary skills to navigate the platform during the planning process is paramount.
Who: Virtual Platform – SineWave & Zoom with 2,000 Rapid7 employees
Event: Amp 2021
A one week onboarding into the platform for all staff, allowing them to create their own avatars and get to grips with the platform.
A fully bespoke virtual world, created from scratch.
4 day show with a mixture of general session, networking, breakouts and discussions.
Allowing the attendees the chance to ask questions, network and learn more about the initiatives within the company.
We essentially created a virtual world from scratch, taking in parts of each of the Rapid 7 offices, from furniture and textures, down to music and artwork into the online realm.
The event segments were shorter and more succinct so they could be easily consumed from home.
There was a relay for those in APAC after every day, so they could consume the content at a sociable hour. There were also opportunities for them to engage with the leadership team.
