About this Workshop

Holding trainings and meetings online is challenging enough, but what about large events like conferences, summits, union meetings, or networking gatherings, where you have hundreds of people, multiple things happening at the same time, or over multiple days?  Recently there has been an explosion of virtual event management platforms that aim to simplify the experience of complex online or hybrid events.  These platforms combine multiple tools into one central place, for example: registration and payment, event website/portal with agenda, online video and web conferencing, networking and engagement tools. Some examples include Bizzabo, Hopin, EventMobi, Socio, Balloon and PheedLoop.
