In a challenging year for the events industry, event tech pioneer MeetingPlay successfully pivoted as a leader in custom, mobile event apps to become a virtual event trailblazer. As a result, MeetingPlay is now the go-to virtual and hybrid event partner for fortune 500 companies, having hosted some of the largest virtual events in history.
When asked how they accomplished this in such a short timeframe, MeetingPlay CEO Joe Schwinger responded, “Our secret sauce was actually listening to our customers. Some of the initial questions they asked us were:
- How do we preserve the spirit of a face-to-face event if our attendees can’t be together in person?
- How do we replicate large keynote sessions, breakouts, and roundtable discussions, virtually?
- How do we create meaningful, face-to-face networking experiences for our virtual attendees?
- How can we give sponsors and exhibitors exposure during a virtual event?
- How do we engage virtual attendees?
From listening to our customers, we built a Virtual Engagement Platform chocked full of experiences that actually feel like what one would encounter at a face-to-face event. We helped a large tech client pivot their user conference to virtual with daily keynotes, over 200 breakouts, networking sessions, exhibits and more. It was so successful that before we knew it, we had hundreds of referrals for virtual.”
