Annual Conference - Hybrid

This particular event will be memorable for several reasons. 2020 was going to be the year this event was on target for hitting 200 delegates, with the reintroduction of a conference dinner, extended programme and new social activities. It was no mean feat to build the conference up with such a buzz of excitement. However, Covid-19 meant we had to continuously think on our feet and push to make this event a success for those that managed to attend despite everything that was starting to happen in the world. 

We had two days to implement a hybrid option so speakers or delegates who were not able to travel could present their session and or watch online. Some elements, such as the Awards during the dinner, were not available for remote viewing at such short notice, but for those that did watch online they were very grateful to be able to still join most of the event. The AV team altered their shifts so they could be dedicated to presenter and delegate support if needed.

Biggest challenge

A global pandemic that was building momentum in Europe with various speakers, exhibitors and delegates cancelling due to travel restrictions imposed by their companies. An ever changing programme and floor plan due to the cancellations and a major sponsor withdrawing the night before the event began. We were one day away from Ireland being locked down.
