Google Cloud Next - A 9 week virtual experience that included features like: interactive demos, breakouts, expert 1:1 meetings, playlist creation and shareable playlists, learning and development content and more!

Intuit Quick Books Connect - QuickBooks Connect hosted 55,000 accountants at their North America conference. This included features like: Photobooth, networking, dynamic breakouts, live streaming, classic gaming, and more!

  • PhotoBooth and Meme Generator - Our team can develop new features from scratch. Give attendees the opportunity to take a fun picture to add to the meme directory. Look up other attendees to see their personalized meme/message. These memes can be downloaded as Zoom backgrounds for future use.
  • Classic Games - Between breakout sessions, allow attendees to compete in some classic old-school games like Snake, Tetris or Space Invaders. Drive more traffic to sponsor virtual booths by hosting a game competition. These games can also be branded with sponsor logo.
  • Live Stream Interaction - Increase engagement during live stream by allowing attendees to respond in real-time by clicking the various emoji reactions

Share one tip you have for running a successful event.

Always plan for redundancies, load testing and Q&A are critical to any virtual event.
