OBJECTIVES:

A French multinational company with headquarters based in Reading, approached First Event to create a solution for delivering their Leadership Conference and kick off meeting for 2021, which was traditionally held in a physical format.

OVERVIEW:

Our client’s main priority was to engage with internal colleagues to communicate leadership priorities and how leadership will enable the growth of the business over the next twelve months.

First Event created a bespoke virtual studio in with the event branding to produce the one day conference. First Event ensured that presenters were filmed both in studio and in their homes in line with COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The virtual conference ran from 8.00-13.00 and hosted six sessions which included online speed networking, panel discussions, presentations and roundtable discussions.

A custom networking space was also designed for the leadership conference.

RESULTS:

Our client was delighted with the success of the leadership conference and First Event received the following feedback:

‘First Event helped us to deliver a brilliant event. Due to Covid, our annual event was forced to go virtual for the first time ever. We wanted to do something that would still be engaging for our colleagues as well as being a bit different from the rest of our communications. First Event helped us to do just that – we used a green screen studio combined with a variety of online tools to host a brilliant virtual conference. Thank you to Holly, Jake and the whole team and First Event.’
