Delegate, 37th EGOS Colloquium
Congress by design is happy to have been able to accommodate such a huge event virtually. The online platform offered plenty of options for the different components in the program. The 37th EGOS Colloquium Organizers (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam together with the European Group for Organizational Studies) were a pleasure to work with and we hope to work with them again in the future!
Challenge: The program included 66 parallel sessions as well as key-notes and sub-plenary sessions.
Solution: Our team managed to successfully create a virtual (3D) environment to accommodate each and every session, whether it’d be a livestream, Zoom session, or social networking session. Our 3D platform was able to offer the options required for the Colloquium program.
It was important for the client that the delegates could experience and benefit from the full length of the program as if it were a live event. All the same components were present, including paper presentations and discussions; the networking opportunities as well as the social events. All virtual!
One of the highlights of the conference was definitely the successful Opening of the Colloquium, streamed live from the beautiful aula at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. It set the tone for the rest of the program.
