Bringing people together in hybrid and virtual environments.
With over 20 years of experience in handling high-end international conferences and events ECMeetings collaborated with an international producer of high-end 3D visuals and a leading software development company to create Evowk.
As an all-in-one events platform for virtual and hybrid exhibitions, meetings, conferences and events, Evowk focuses on maximizing the potential of virtual events, by offering individually tailored solutions, a hands-on approach and full event support.
For the past 7 years ECMeetings has been working together with Thermo Fisher Scientific for their annual European Sales Conference. In 2020 and 2021 the event shifted from an in-person event to a virtual event. The client wanted to create a dynamic, real-feel event in a virtual environment. The event objective was to deliver goals for the following year, celebrate achievements of the past year and to strengthen supplier and sales representative relationships during challenging times, through offering extensive networking and lead generation possibilities.
The virtual events platform was tailored to the specific requirements to host a 5 day multi-session conference and exhibition for 40 international exhibitors.
The event included:
- Plenary sessions for sales representatives and suppliers
- Networking sessions between supplier company and selected sales representatives
- Networking socials: Pub Quiz, Family Friendly Happy Hour and Cover Band, and a Wellbeing Lounge
- Exhibition with 20-minute session rotation on 40 booths (1600 sessions in total)
- Awards ceremony
- Multiple individual and group networking sessions
"We have worked with ECMeetings for several years and on a variety of events. Like many of us, we needed to adapt our approach in recent times. Using their Evowk platform has allowed us to migrate our annual sales and supplier exhibition event seamlessly into the virtual world.
Through their support and attention to detail, we have preserved the value proposition of the event for all of our stakeholders. The ECMeetings and Evowk team were with us every step of the way, from building a platform that matched our requirements, adding functionality for some of our very specific needs and helping to run the event, providing technical support for all our users and liaising with all other content providers to ensure that everything was delivered to our delegates in a very professional environment.''
