Virtual Event Platform
By using innovative internet technology, we have created a stunning, user-friendly virtual environment. This enables online communication, even in large groups of up to tens of thousands of Participants, providing them with that real event feeling. While the components are seamlessly integrated into a self-contained conference similar to a physical exhibition center, the platform is highly flexible and scalable. Supporting both small online events as well as virtual conferences and fairs with of up to tens of thousands of participants is easily possible. Furthermore, you can adjust all design components - or simply use templates.
Main Hall and Lounge
The virtual main hall is the entry point for any online event. Here, attendees can familiarise themselves with the event, interact with other attendees and enter the other online event areas.
SAP chose the ubivent virtual event platform for their first internal online event, and to complement their physical events.. The project was a huge success, as Reiner Schmitt (Head of SAP’s Global License and Asset Management team) states: “The ubivent guys were of great help for the event. The platform was ran smoothly in all parts of our global network. For the first time we were able to inform lots of employees about software licensing.”
Typically, participants can watch a teaser or welcome video, which tells them the most important information about the virtual event. There is also an information booth where attendees can find any assistance they might need.
Attendees also have the chance to network and interact with one another in the lounge area, an additional feature of the main hall. We have integrated multiple social networking capabilities (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, ...) in order to enable communication, helping to ensure that contacts are not lost once the event is over.
The main hall is also the navigation center for virtual events. From here attendees can access all other areas of the event, such as a keynote theater with video presentations or an exhibition hall with virtual booths. Since the virtual event platform supports events of unlimited size, it is also possible to access further exhibition halls, thus adding additional navigation layers for very large events.
The virtual keynote theater is the broadcasting component of your online event. We support the following video streams:
(a) live (studio/conference): live video streaming from a particular location;
(b) live (webcam): video streaming with your webcam;
(c) pseudo-live: pre-recorded and played at a fixed time;
(d) on demand: pre-recorded and played on request.
Each virtual event should include some live or pseudo-live parts, since this strengthens the interaction and produces a real "event feeling" for the participants.
Research (BMBF) uses our ubivent virtual event platform for its online marketplace "Zwanzig20 - Partnership for Innovation". This virtual marketplace is an important tool, which supports different business and science organisations as they come together to form decentralised networks during the early stages of the program, thereby helping to pave the way for effective cooperation between science and technology. Several hundred participants are the further underline the success of the event.
Adjust it to your needs
The virtual auditorium can be tailored to your individual needs: with or without slides, subtitles or translation. Polls, feedback and online tests can also be integrated to your event.
In order to enable lively interaction, video presentations can be run in combination with our chat feature. Live chats can be started automatically at the end of the presentation, and the moderator can also determine the order in which the messages of the attendees appear, in order to guide the flow of the discussion. Answers can be submitted in the group chat or via webcam.
The virtual auditorium is mainly used for interaction in a group. Personal interaction takes place in the at the virtual booths.
Exhibition Hall with Booths
In the virtual exhibition hall, conference attendees can browse the booths. These virtual booths can be adjusted according to your corporate identity, and all elements within the booths, such as video screens and document sections, can be emphasized to varying degrees depending on how important they are for you.
Together with ubivent, the premium recruiting platform JobLeads regularly conducts an online career fair for IT experts. Today, the Virtual IT Job Fair has been established as the biggest online career fair for IT professionals in German-speaking countries. Numerous highly reputable companies participate in this virtual event. Susanne Hamer, project manager at JobLeads, is very pleased with this sustained success: “The virtual events for career-interested experts and managers in the IT sector are a huge success and exceed our most optimistic expectations – thanks to ubivent and their professional and flawless realization of this innovative event platform.”
Live interaction with booth staff
You can also staff each booth with individual booth personnel. As soon as they log in to the platform, their personal avatar appears in the booth. Each booth visitor can can simply click on these avatars to either start a video chat or a text based chat. The number of staff on a booth is not restricted in any way! A complex algorithm ensures that only the next available avatar is shown to the attendees.
