Participate in the livestream: Hybrid events build on interactive concepts

Anyone who is invited to a conference today can now attend from home. In “hybrid Events”, parts of the audience are spatially separated: a part is present at the Event, the virtual participants participate live via the Internet. This is possible thanks to video streaming. To participate means to be active from afar.  Audience response tools such as teambits:interactive enable equal audience participation for all participants. For example, to ask questions on the podium or to realize a cooperation between all participants, as is also known from the facilitated group work. Participate in the browser of the participant – regardless of whether on the smartphone or the home PC. Continue reading Participate in the livestream: Hybrid events build on interactive concepts

Facilitate panel discussions and speed workshops in large groups

The example of a two-day management meeting of an international insurance group – conducted in the Federal Palace in Bonn – illustrates the advantages of digital moderation. The company brings together 240 of its executives at a two-day non-public meeting.  All participants can enrich the content of the event with their own smartphone or tablet. They directly participate in a creating value, as their personal knowledge becomes productive in the course of the event. Participants generated information is merged and documented in real time. The procedure: On the first day the participants are activated as discussants in a panel discussion. On the second day, the results of the previous day will be picked up in order to gather and deepen ideas in a “speed workshop”. Continue reading Facilitate panel discussions and speed workshops in large groups

Conference on satellite navigation with ideas competition – feedback from trade visitors thanks to digital facilitation

Digital facilitation is not a rocket science. Nevertheless, we are very pleased to accompany the Center for Satellite Navigation Hessen at the European Satellite Control Center on the way to the digital age with digital moderation. The 270 guests of the conference “Global Navigation meets Geoinformation” first collected digitally their associations on the topic “Big Data from Space – Geodata in the Digital Age” on 19th of April 2018. The presenter, Sascha Heising, skilfully translated the results into three consecutive podium discussions in which the participants spoke actively via their smartphones. The conference will also be the kick-off event of the idea competition “European Satellite Navigation Competition” (ESNC). During the “Entrepreneurship in Space” session, the entrepreneurs were given a digitally moderated feedback from the audience on their company pitches. A special feature of the event was the special IT security requirements that are expected of an organization like ESA. Since teambits specializes in realizing interactive audience participation even within demanding network environments, the project could be implemented without any delays or performance losses.

World Café – trendy buzzword or ingeniously simple concept?

Konferenz mit TischgruppenIn discussions about brainstorming with our customers, who are currently planning a large group event, we find that “World-Café” is a term for many event managers and event organizers but many aspects are still hidden. While organizational developers and systemic consultants have been dealing with large groups since the late 1980s, event seekers looking for participative formats have only just discovered the added value that a format like the World Café can bring with them – assuming everything is done right! Because the efficiency of the format benefits greatly from digitization, we take this as an opportunity to briefly introduce the areas of  applicationprocess und  principles of a World-Café Continue reading World Café – trendy buzzword or ingeniously simple concept?

Digitized World Café with 200 participants on the occasion of a medical congress

On the search for event concepts with interactive narrative forms, the “World Café” format is currently very popular
among event planners.

The format is one of the most recent organization conference formats and relies on the work in table groups. Thanks to digitization, several hundred participants to get involved is possible. The most recent example is the Landeskongress Gesundheit Baden-Württemberg, digitized by teambits for the umpteenth time.

The subject of the congress was the digital transformation in the medical care facilities. Whether it was interaction during the keynote speeches in the form of an Q&A or voting on issues of initial care for patients, activating the participants via smartphone determined the day and generated participatory, shared experiences and results. teambits provided concept, consulting, technical implementation and customized (“custom made”) interactions. Continue reading Digitized World Café with 200 participants on the occasion of a medical congress

The activation of the participants generates the topics of the event of tomorrow

We remember. Until now the following media breaks were normal: The invitation to the event came via Email. The ticket as PDF. The program was available as an EventApp to download, even if hardly anyone has downloaded it. If you wanted to say something, you had to hope for the microphone. Those who did not dare to touch the microphone remained silent. And where public participation should be suggested, there were ballots or “TED” systems. These media breaks are passé today. All components of an event concept can be used and operated by the participant today via smartphone. Via WebApp in the browser. Continue reading The activation of the participants generates the topics of the event of tomorrow

Participants from the audience rephrased the question: How do you get participants of an event to interact in that event via app? Especially if you are dealing with a more conservative audience? Here are three answers: Continue reading How do you get participants to accept and use interactive elements?
