Known as the best and favourite CPD event, Media in Africa decided to host their first completely virtual DAS event in September 2020 due to the Covid-19 related restrictions. The event brings together many people from across the building and décor industries each year and 2020 was to be no different even though it was hosted on a virtual platform.
As a result of lockdown, DAS was looking for a solution that would allow them to host a virtual CPD event with high-value speakers. DAS wanted to showcase Media in Africa’s ability to adapt to the changing environment and enabled guests to attend their event from anywhere without compromising their experience.
The Flock Team stepped in to offer DAS a virtual platform that featured live chats and commenting during the event which meant that all participants could share collaborate and engage on each of the segments, delivering a much richer and more meaningful experience. Sponsors’ and advertisers’ offerings were also elevated with direct audience placement, thanks to the event’s interactive format. The participants were impressed with the event’s format, the quality of speakers as well as the ability to interact and engage with peers.
Commenting on the event, Heidi Olivier, Product Manager at the Etex Group says, “I think the virtual DAS was fabulous. Some interesting speakers. There were no technical problems, and the way you guys did the interaction and engagement with the audience was great. Well done.
“Interslab’s project manager, Kerry-Lee Mannix, notes: “The platform for the actual conference was user friendly and a fantastic transition of the day’s events.”
