Challenges

    GCC Power is an annual event that brings influential people from the energy industry on a single platform, where discussion ranges from the latest developments in the energy industry to the latest products being released.

    However, this was the first time it was being hosted virtually. Hence, the client, based out of the middle-east, wanted to host a virtual exhibition that was very customized based on a middle-eastern theme.

    Here were the requirements of the event:

  • Customization: The host wanted the entire event to be customized according to their theme with custom designs.


  • Bifurcation: Also, the host wanted to segregate the participants based on who paid and who didn’t.


  • Engagement: Engagement was another aspect the host was particular about.


  • Payment gateway integration was required to streamlyn the payment process for the participants.
