Online Conferences, Virtual Exhibitions, Job Fairs, Open Days
Customers of WorkCast Producer+ and Enterprise licenses have the option to create and run multi-sessional events. Take a look at two working examples listed below demonstrating the registration, email and page viewing experience.
This working example shows the full end to end user experience from registration process and confirmation email to the fully live event pages. You can browse individually branded exhibitor booths, the live chat room or individual webinar pages.
The second example shows a more traditional layout with no exhibition lobby and the focus more on webinar presentations. The lobby includes a live Twitter feed and shows how you can separate webinar presentations in to filter sections.
Creating Virtual Events
WorkCast customers are able to create a wide range of online event experiences using the Event, Channel and Event Session capabilities of the WorkCast Platform,.
Visitors to an event can be presented with a range of groups (Channels) of presentations (Event Sessions) that they can attend over the period of that event.
An analogy is that of a conference centre; designed to hold different events on different dates, each event may differ in its range, breadth and host different talks, sessions, booths, breakout areas, etc.
It may be as simple as a single room with a number of sequential presentations or as complex as a large Expo featuring a keynote hall, multiple simultaneous streams with many presentations which viewers can individually register for and exhibitor areas with individual booths contained within designated halls.
The WorkCast Platform can act as a 'conference centre' containing a WorkCast Event as the overall Event with its own overall registrations, access (Lobby) and communications and then channels acting as the different tracks, halls, streams and breakouts and the Event Sessions acting as the individual presentations within those.
It is possible to have separate registration for tracks (Channels) and presentations (Event Sessions) within the main event.
The Platform is not limited by the size or complexity of the event as new Channels and Event Sessions can be added, removed or amended at any time. Each component in the Event can also be fully customized and branded.
Once an overall Event has been designed and saved as a template it can be reused with new content, speakers and presentation.
The same combination of Event, Channel and Event sessions can be used to create a variety of additional multi-session event scenarios.
Examples of Multi-Session Events
Register for the overall event or the speakers you are interested in. A lobby page provides the agenda and channel providing access to the individual featured presentations.
Overall event registration with different tracks for employers, job functions, departments, etc, with the ability to watch presentations, ask questions and apply for roles.
University/College Open Days
Overall event registration with students able to view a range of presentations (Event Sessions) from different faculties (Channels), departments (Channels) and apply for courses.
Internal Staff Conference
Secure registration for the event with channels displaying different departments. Staff watch and interact with the individual presentations.
To discuss your event scenario, speak with a member of the WorkCast sales team or with your Account Manager.
