In response to attendee feedback, NFPA and FPIC have revamped the networking opportunities for our Regional Conference on December 3. The conference, which will now be hosted on the virtual platform Remo, will deliver the quality content members expect while also exceeding the interactivity capabilities of the typical virtual experience. Features of the upcoming event include:
- Virtual Networking Ballroom: What sets Remo apart from traditional web conferencing platforms is its unique approach to face-to-face interaction. Before and after presentations, attendees can mingle at a number of virtual tables where they can join video chatrooms which host several guests at a time. This approach is a more organic way to initiate networking between attendees and mimics the traditional interaction of an in-person conference as closely as possible. View this Remo networking tutorial to learn more.
- Live Questions & Answers: Remo’s Q&A feature allows guests to type a question and receive real-time responses from the presenter. This is an excellent way to actively participate in the conversation and expand on the presented content.
- Chat: When you have a comment to make, you can use the chat box to share your thoughts with panelists and attendees. This space is great for adding supplemental thoughts and information to continue the conversation forward.
- Polling: Another way our team intends to engage the audience is through polls which attendees can easily respond to via their computer or smartphone. After voting, the results will be made visible to attendees to jumpstart discussion.
This platform upgrade is the optimum next step for NFPA and FPIC to ensure our attendees have an engaging and interactive experience as we continue to adapt our approach to virtual events to fit the needs of our members.
