On-line programs for virtual conferences

On-line programs for virtual conferences

The situation around the Covid19 pandemic has caused many companies to end up having existential problems. Some areas of business have overnight almost ceased to exist, in particular the travel industry, accommodation and catering services, or event management and teambuilding services. One of the few positive things this situation has caused, has been the development and implementation of a range of on-line solutions for business processes.

Conferences, congresses and teambuilding

To organize or not to organize? That's the question! The conference business has learned a really hard lesson taught by nature. Situations where hundreds of people are sitting in the same room all day are not exactly something epidemiologists would approve of. Fortunately, even in this area, there's a possibility to use many on-line solutions.

Communication programs

For meetings in virtual spaces, it is possible to use solutions from a number of established software companies. Popular software programs include Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Cisco Webex, Slack or the reborn Skype. Most of these programs offer almost full functionality in the basic version and are fully sufficient for the implementation of smaller events. It usually differs from the paid versions by the number of meeting participants and the length of the meeting.

Webinars and streaming

Webinars have recently been a widely used form of employee training or customer training. They appear mainly on professional community portals. For a "livelier" form of training, it is possible to use live-streaming. In the gaming industry, the Twitch streaming platform is clearly the number one, in the corporate industry you can use, for example, classic YouTube.

Virtual programs

The above mentioned software solutions can be used in the organization of virtual conferences and congresses. You will also appreciate them when planning on-line teambuildings or corporate trainings. Together with a suitable virtual program, you can prepare a surprising experience for the participants of the event.

Virtual escape games

The TerraHunt platform enables the organization of outdoor mobile events, as well as the implementation of team programs in the virtual world. It uses the cooperation of a mobile application for the Android operating system (optimization for mobile phones and tablets) and an application working in a web browser (usable on devices with Windows and iOS systems).

For virtual team programs, the most suitable is the web version of the application, which you easily connect with one of the above mentioned communication programs. For example, some virtual escape games can be used for on-line programs. These can be completed by your clients or employees as an individual or team competition.

Technical solution

Participants of the event usually need just a personal computer or a mobile device. For organizers, the demands on technical equippment are greater. The "must" are quality hardware, reasonable software and a decent speed of the internet connection.

Maintain relationships with partners and clients

In general, it can be said that the implementation of virtual company programs is financially affordable, time-saving and technically not complicated. Maintaining relationships with business partners and clients, or organizing teambuilding for employees, is thus possible thanks to modern solutions even in times of social distancing.
