Using the video conferencing software Hopin, we curated Creative Wakefield’s ‘The Big Network Gathering’ with 100 delegates attending. This was the first time the organisation had run a large-scale digital networking event and wanted to use a versatile platform able handle large numbers of delegates and multiple events. We were able to manage main stage presentations, breakout sessions, 1 to 1 networking and expo booths to promote other organisations. Delegates found it easier to move around this platform and attend different events. Organiser Rosalind Hill WX3 Creative Network Manager said “One to One’s technical aptitude, professional approach and commitment to the values of Creative Wakefield was evidenced in every point of contact”. If you are interested in working with us and using this platform, please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
