You need your attendees to stream your event easily, possibly on the go.A mobile app allows for the whole event to be hosted easily in one place where they know in advance they can download, and will have access without any complicated links on emails, and can access the event as long as they have access to the internet. If you’re not sure whether you should get a mobile app, these 4 requirements will make it worth your while.
Something people have struggled to get their head around with virtual events is if and when they should be charging for attendance. There are a few ways to go about it and it doesn’t only have to be through the traditional way of charging for ticket sales (though that will be our first point!). Read on for more ideas.
We’ve got some amazing Virtual Event tricks up our sleeves, and here’s just one of them:
An easily accessible, formal or informal auditorium set-up for your guests to network amongst each other by walking around, browsing the exhibition, and then gathering in the same room together for the actual conference to start. All this through a PC (no special hardware required!)
Many event venues have adapted to offer hybrid event facilities in response to the growing demand for a more versatile and adaptive event space.
Hybrid events combine the best of physical (in-person) and virtually events. Better yet, when these events are hosted in a venue equipped to cater for both the virtual and physical space it can provide a slick and interactive experience for all.
The live polling feature on our mobile app is always a hit at events. It doesn’t only give you a chance to get interesting feedback from guests, but it’s a great way to get everyone at the event working together, interacting and engaging.
An event landing page is the first thing prospective guests see when looking for more information about your event. Therefore, creating your event landing page is arguably the most important step in the event marketing process.
What is an event landing page? Put simply, it’s the web page potential attendees first ‘land’ on after they’ve clicked advertisements or affiliate links to find out more about or sign up for your event. It is also the page specifically used to collect attendee registrations. A highly informative, eye-catching, and engaging landing page will lead to successful conversions for your event.
Recently we held an event for a conference that ended up with 3 times (!) the amount of anticipated attendees, all able to retrieve their CPD points after attending! The event managed to connect guests from all over South Africa to listen to top speakers in their field, get up to speed with developments in their industry, and stay at the forefront of their profession. The event was filled with expert information, high engagement and interaction from all guests, with Live Polls, Live Q&A, commentary, speaker ratings and ice breakers.
Being able to attend an entire event virtually felt very futuristic until a few months ago when tech improved dramatically and new health situations encouraged us to change our view on traditional events. So, we have great news (and a solid solution for event planners that still need their events), with some attendees hesitant to travel or unable to be (physically) in one place all together.
Overlooking the beautiful Table Mountain and Cape Town Foreshore, the Colourlab’s spectacular industrial building is a versatile venue suitable for all kinds of events.
The event industry has changed drastically over the last few months and although it has been a particularly challenging shift, we have seen marked improvements in efficiency and scale due to the new reliance on technology and the virtual space.
Flock is no stranger to developing and executing online events. Since 2013, we have been creating seamless Event Tech experiences in more than 36 countries and have covered a myriad of events from virtual conferences to online awards ceremonies. Flock aims to optimize user engagement for every type of event we manage — whether live, virtual or hybrid.
In amongst all the impressive events we have been able to be a part of, we have also spent a lot of time improving the features of our apps to enhance the experience for attendees, and ease of communication by our event planners.
Flock Eventing Platform was thrilled to play a role in this year’s prestigious Simon Sabela Awards which honours achievements in the film and television industry.
Mike Lysko, the Founder and CEO of the Flock Eventing Platform says the company hopes to assist in the initiative for many years to come.
The 8th annual Simon Sabela Awards took place on the 12th of September 2020 at the International Film Festival in Durban. The Awards recognise the outstanding talent and achievements of role players within the South African film and television industry, from actors, producers, directors through to film and television technicians.
As you may know by now, we are well into providing Virtual Events – through Mobile Event Apps to Event Websites (which we’ve been doing for years!) – but now everything can be even more neatly packaged for an Online Event experience that your attendees will love.
We’ve done a few upgrades to our system to better cater for a better online experience, as follows:
Flock Events Platform in partnership with event organisers, Event Wizards, was involved in an exciting event for EXXARO, a leading South African mining company. The event was entirely virtual, with Flock providing EXXARO with a custom mobile app and an event page.
Flock Eventing Platform, South Africa’s leading online events platform has, over the past ten months, received a significant increase in demand for virtual events. These requests have come from both local and global clients, due to the negative impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on live events.
This has created a number of exciting growth opportunities for Flock and has prompted a strategic move to establish a Flock office in Lisbon, Portugal.
Over the last few months, we have spent time crafting and re-designing the back end of our platform to make it even better and improve the experience for our clients. From the Multiple Events Dashboard to the Email Design functionality, through to the Mobile App Design Module, and the Exportable Reports – it has all had a facelift.
What did we do and how did we communicate urgent alerts before this feature?
2020 has been quite a year! We’ve seen the industry adapt and host some incredible online events. These events have brought people together to share memorable experiences.
Flock Eventing Platform was thrilled to assist the Gauteng SMME Summit host their annual event virtually for the first time.
The annual summit is hosted by the Gauteng Department of Economic Development.
The SMME Summit, held over two days in February this year, aims to help create access to information, financial assistance and access to markets for township-based businesses in the province.
