KS Agenda organises conferences, seminars and training courses for the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS).The events and training courses are designed to help employees in the municipality sector with their everyday work challenges and include topics such as management and digital transformation.Due to the global pandemic and restrictions on travel, KS Agenda needed to find a suitable virtual event solution to take its two live events, Arbeidslivskonferansen 2021 and Sentralt avtalekurs 2021, online.
KS Agenda chose EventEye’s end-to-end solution for virtual events to facilitate Arbeidslivskonferansen 2021 and Sentralt Avtalekurs 2021, held in January.EventEye’s full-service offering, which includes setup and support through the event life cycle, was an attractive proposition for the team to help guide them through a new format for their conferences, having previously always organised them as physical experiences.The conference content was a mix of simulive (pre-recorded) and live and made available for participant use after the event.There was a live stream for participants to connect with each other and speakers before and after sessions and virtual breakout rooms made available between one session for smaller groups of participants to have a ‘digital coffee break’.
Audience engagement was a key focus for KS Agenda and EventEye’s live interaction photo wall for participants to share their own photos with each other to like and comment on was used to create a sign of unity among everyone taking part.
The two events were a resounding success attracting 15% more participants than the previous year.Delegate feedback was “exceptional” according to KS Agenda with delegates highlighting EventEye’s virtual platform’s ease of use in their feedback forms.Moving the event to a virtual format meant KSAgenda was able to extend its reach and save delegates precious travel time and expenses.Having the content available after the event to all participants meant they could access much more information than just the sessions they were involved in at the time, adding value for those involved.KS Agenda says the ease of use of EventEye’s platform and positive feedback from attendees means the organiser will use the virtual event platform for future events.
“We can’t thank EventEye enough for the support throughout this year’s events, working closely with the EventEye team was priceless. The team was available throughout the lifecycle of the events to help with any query, no matter what time of the day, and their knowledge sharing was pivotal to the smooth running of the event. We look forward to using EventEye’s platform on our next event in a few weeks' time.”
