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.

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.

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?

Digital facilitate questions in face-to-face events

Participants continuously associate questions, objections and ideas with the content they bring to them. But only very few participants want to expose themselves to a hall microphone. Also, they usually get neither space nor time the opportunity to connect to the microphone. One of the most fundamental strengths of digital moderation is therefore the use of public issues.

In contrast to known microblogging services, teambits allows a highly efficient division of work between audience, directing and facilitating. The focus of attention can be directed to a much larger number of participant contributions because presenters lose neither control nor time to individual dominant participants. Moreover, teambits enables low-threshold communication in a protected area with controlled public coverage. Without requiring participants to install software.

teambits digitizes Consultation Event to locate sites for nuclear dump

On April 29 and 30, 2016, the “Commission on Storage of High-Level Radioactive Waste” invited guests to a consultation event in Berlin. At the nationwide event, more than 150 representatives from society, business and science as well as citizens discussed the draft of the repository report and its key messages. To increase the consensus-based nature of the report, attendees were able to read and comment on all key messages in the draft report, as well as ask questions to the commission members on content and background during the consultation meeting. Through the use of teambits:interactive It was possible for the participants to send their comments, which were discussed in small groups of tables, to a central editorial office, thus creating a common assessment of the key messages from the draft report. This could involve the Commission in its final deliberations on the draft.
