In the vibrant city of Dubai, a team of event organizers took on an exciting project – to host a large-scale conference for a valued client. Their goal was to bring together 800 attendees from various backgrounds. This case study will dive into the story of this event, the “Global Innovation Confluence,” where people from all over the world gathered to share ideas and insights. These were some of the challenges faced by the clients:
Scheduling & Program Management
One of the most significant operational challenges faced by the organizers was to avoid the scheduling conflicts that force attendees to choose between multiple interesting sessions. Earlier, this challenge led to attendee frustration and reduced participation in some sessions.
Communication & Information Flow
In the past, organizers were failing to provide multiple communication channels, such as mobile apps, printed schedules, or information on booths and more. Last-minute alterations to session locations, times, or speakers created confusion when this information could not promptly and accurately be communicated to participants. Inadequate information also led to reduced engagement with the conference, as attendees may miss out on sessions, workshops, or networking opportunities.
Enhancing Attendee Engagement
The inadequate monitoring of questions posed to speakers was impeding attendee engagement. To rectify this issue, the organizers sought to introduce an event tech platform into the equation.
Speaker Profiles : An interesting feature was how organizers were able to create comprehensive speaker profiles on the platform. These profiles typically include their professional background, areas of expertise, previous speaking engagements, and a biography. Attendees can browse these profiles to get a better understanding of the speakers’ credentials and relevance to the event.
Comprehensive Speaker Profiles : Samaaro simplifies the compilation of presentation materials. Speakers had the power to easily upload their presentation files, handouts, and reference documents to the platform.
Agenda Management : Event organizers had full control over the event agenda. They could create a detailed schedule, assigning speakers to specific time slots, rooms, and tracks. Attendees were able to access this agenda to plan their participation and navigate the event seamlessly.
Effortless Session Administration : Organizers efficiently managed the scheduling of speaker sessions. The platform offered an intuitive agenda management system that allowed for the easy allocation of speakers to specific time slots, rooms, and tracks.
Additionally, to enhance the interactivity of speaker sessions Samaaro provided tools for moderating live Q&A sessions. Attendees could actively engage with speakers, asking questions and receiving real-time responses, which affected the overall event experience.
Sponsor Management Dashboard : This sophisticated tool empowered organizers to efficiently oversee, strategize, and optimize their sponsorship partnerships, ensuring the success of their events. It served as a one-stop destination to track the progress and engagement of sponsors throughout the event lifecycle.
Multi-Tier Sponsorship Packages & Contracts : Samaaro provided event organizers with the ability to design and oversee a diverse range of sponsorship packages, each structured into distinct tiers. These packages encompassed various levels of visibility, branding opportunities, and degrees of participation. Moreover, Samaaro’s features encompassed the generation and supervision of sponsorship contracts, giving complete authority to the event organizers.
Seamless Communication with Push Notifications : Samaaro introduced a convenient push notification feature, allowing organizers to send event updates to attendees with active logins. The notifications were easily accessible through a dedicated notifications tab. This feature ensured that attendees could stay engaged and informed about the latest event developments in real-time. Samaaro’s platform not only facilitated seamless communication through push notifications but also leveraged WhatsApp to provide real-time event updates and deliver tickets to the attendees.
Targeted Marketing Capabilities : Samaaro’s platform allowed organizers to segment their attendee lists based on specific criteria. This segmentation capability enabled organizers to dispatch tailored notifications or emails to specific groups of attendees.
