Making the pivot from conference to successful online event series.
As part of navigating through 2020, over at Empire Engineering we had some big decisions to make about our annual Foundation Ex event.
In 2019 the team went out on a limb by putting on a conference (they’re engineers remember) and the day and evenings were all big successes. Heading in 2020 with big momentum. You can guess the rest…
What’s been really impressive is being part of a close knit team who gets things done in the right way and at pace. In the space of less than 5 working days we turned around a physical event into an online ‘tech sessions’ series and kept the whole thing going. This has been one of those moments where strategy needs an element of agility. Our sponsors get what we’re doing and have stayed on board for the digital series and committed to 2021.
Creating a successful online event series
We’re now working super hard to make sure the digital output is up to scratch. It’s already coming good, our first ever session had more than 200 registrations and 100 live viewers for the whole time and the second one is at the end of this month with more than 100 registrations and counting.
