Creating a safe and interactive experience for all by working closely with local, quality AV suppliers, this solution allows event organisers to move aspects of their physical event to a virtual platform to deliver a blended event.

This can take many forms with attendees and speakers able to join virtually and/or on-site, from allowing live polling and Q&As in synergy with the physical audience, to avatar networking and virtual reality solutions.
