The 27th International Conference of the Australasian Sonographers Association - Hybrid Solution

Delegate Connect was engaged by the Australian Sonographers Association to deliver their hybrid event from the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2021. This was a large scale conference with over 1500 delegates, across 3 days and 9 rooms. There was a large volume of content and it was important for the client to provide a seamless experience for the in person and virtual audiences.

It was also important to the client that the onsite exhibitors and sponsors had the ability to engage easily with the virtual delegates as well as the onsite delegates. We were able to facilitate this through the use of our networking features including 1 to 1 video meetings, round table rooms and live chat.

Originally Delegate Connect were going to work closely with the venue audio visual team to live stream the event onto the Delegate Connect platform. As the planning progressed, it became clear to both the client and Delegate Connect that we were the experts in delivering hybrid events and it made the most sense for our team to go onsite to the venue and manage the in room delivery and live streaming. We were able to pivot our delivery within a few weeks and took our team onsite to the venue to deliver an outstanding hybrid event.

The conference was a great success and the feedback from the onsite and virtual delegates was outstanding. The client was also impressed, and we have been engaged once again to deliver their hybrid conference in 2022.
