In 2019 alone, over 157,000 people attended congresses in Barcelona, which tops the list of congress cities in 2019 by number of attendees worldwide (https://de.statista.com/statistik/daten/studie/246884/umfrage/die-wichtigsten-kongress-staedte/). Paris (124,000 participants), Madrid (91,900 participants), Lisbon (91,406 participants) are followed by Vienna (89,009 participants) in 5th place and Berlin (85,089 participants) in 6th place.
Due to Covid-19 and the associated travel restrictions, such congresses, with participants flying in from all over the world, are currently unimaginable. Because in these times there should still be a possibility to hold congresses 2.0 (online congress), EECS.green GmbH has come up with a solution.
The online congress
There are many solutions on the market for online congresses, online trade fairs, online conferences, online events, etc. which can now be held conveniently from home, i.e. the home office, or the office on the desktop. But sitting at a desk staring into the desktop and watching an online congress, event or conference did not seem very innovative to us. A live video of the online conference on YouTube or similar seems equally innovative. Therefore, we have come up with a solution that allows the participant to truly immerse himself in the online conference. In other words, an innovative, playful element that does not yet exist: VR.green.
How will the Online Congress be held?
Each participant can immerse themselves in the virtual world via their smartphone. All you need is a pair of cardboard glasses into which you insert your smartphone and you're ready to go. VR.green is a virtual world that you can immerse yourself in. We virtually recreate a congress hall, an event hall or even a stage and play the respective lectures so that the customer has the feeling that he or she is sitting on site and listening to the lecturers. From the comfort of your own desk, you can immerse yourself in the virtual world and follow the online congress without any major technical hurdles.
The Online Congress: advantages and handling
The online congress offers many advantages. Among other things, it saves on travel, transport, catering and personnel costs as well as expensive hall rental and accommodation. The online congress can be called up at any time and can be adapted as required. If the organiser wishes, participants can also call up lectures days later, which means they get more out of the congress. Once the ambience has been virtually "built", a wide variety of online events can be held.
The playful element and easy handling make VR.green suitable for all ages. Immerse yourself in the online congress while sitting in front of your desk, look around the deceptively real-looking hall while listening to the lecturers and explore the virtual world during the breaks.
We all hope that there will soon be events where people from all over the world can meet again. Even if this time will hopefully come soon, the online congress remains a tool that can still be used. Because you can reach your target audience quickly, a wide variety of online events can be held in an uncomplicated and innovative way. Speakers and participants can access it from anywhere in the world, non-stop, from the comfort of their own homes.
We from the EECS.green team would be happy to equip YOUR online congress with this innovative solution. Both as a stand-alone event or as a hybrid solution. We look forward to a non-binding consultation with you.
