DCC&A's Virtual Conference Services

With the global pandemic still bringing challenges to meetings and events, DCC&A has the capability and experience to assist you to run your 2021 meetings in a number of ways.

For information on your face-to-face management and experience please visit our Conference Management and Upcoming Conference pages for more information and also our Testimonial page for firsthand comments from our existing clients.

To meet the needs of our clients in the hybrid and virtual scenarios, DCC&A has developed DCC&A Live Connect. DCC&A Live Connect allows the client to choose the platform and delivery method most suited to their audience, whether hybrid or virtual.  

You can choose the level of online presence at a budget you can afford. It is important to consider the extent of the virtual component. The more of your audience that are virtual the greater the investment in the delivery platform to ensure the best experience for your attendees. DCC&A can discuss this with you and develop the platform which best suits your needs.
 

Hybrid Meetings

Hybrid meetings is a term widely being used at the moment and it simply means you have both options available, face-to-face and virtual wrapped into one package.

Hybrid is an excellent option when the current situation allows for physical attendance from some target audiences but restrictions or limitation for others. It is also an opportunity to extend the audience to a broader group who may have previously not attended your meeting due to distance, time or competing events.

The physical delivery of content is streamed using the Live Connect platform while the audience and the virtual audience can interact with presenters, panellists and Poster presenters through live Q & A, chat facilities and round table sessions. Exhibitors and sponsors have the ability to interact and engage with attendees through the physical presence or the live chat and meeting service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Virtual Meetings

In uncertain times it is a comfort to know you can still engage your members and audience with virtual conference and events. These may look quite different to your annual conference, but they are able to provide engagement and education to members and ensure you are providing member benefits.

Content is streamed live or through pre-recorded sessions and can include live Q & A, chat sessions, round table small group discussions, ePoster sessions and presentations as well as networking opportunities and exhibitor engagement.

 

 

 

 


The benefits of hybrid or virtual:

  • Cost savings on travel and accommodation for international speakers. This can allow you to bring leaders of the field to your conference when in the past it may have been cost prohibitive.
  • Greater accessibility and reach – broadening your audience and potentially strengthening your membership
  • Engagement with an audience who may not usually have the time and ability to attend your meeting due to financial and time constraints.
  • Reduction in cost for those attending – can increase the number attending
