    New Feature Spotlight - Our Newest Virtual Platform Features

    What’s better than shiny, new technology? As virtual event innovators, we here at MeetingPlay make it our mission to bring the best solutions to our clients. With that in mind, we have some exciting new virtual platform updates to share with the world. 

     

    During this new virtual age, we have been hard at work learning and building solutions for our event organizers to facilitate large-scale, lifelike events. So far, we have been able to host some of the largest events in the tech industry, all from our virtual platform. With every event, we find new ways to improve our platform to make the attendee experience something to sing about. 

     

    Without further adieu, here are our new virtual platform feature releases: 

     

    Panel Presentations

    Need more than one presenter in your virtual event breakout sessions? No problem. 

     

    Incorporating panel discussions into your virtual event is an excellent way to offer a moderated conversation between a host and multiple panelists who can offer differing viewpoints and expertise on a specific topic.

    MeetingPlay’s Panel Presentations allow for up to 6 presenters or panel members to present at the same time. This option is available with our live and semi-live session delivery formats.

    Advanced Time Zone Configuration

    Planning an event with international time zones and live sessions is no small feat. We are here to make it easy for you. 

     

    Timezone Configuration

     

    MeetingPlay’s newest agenda feature helps attendees keep track of their sessions and when they will take place. First, attendees choose their time zone during onboarding. Then, on their event agenda, session times are visible in both the time zone the event is taking place in and their own time zone. 

     

    This new feature will alleviate a lot of guesswork around agenda planning and lead to a more seamless attendee experience overall. Knowing time zone complexities and staying wise to available solutions will help you plan the best virtual event experience for participants no matter where they are in the world.


    Theater and Engagement Modes

    It’s no surprise that not all of your attendees have the same learning styles. Some may prefer to interact with other attendees throughout your sessions, while others want to zone in on the content. 

     

    Theater to Engagement Mode

     

    Our new Theater and Engagement Modes accounts for just that. With theater mode, the content toggles to a wide screen view so that participants can focus on the content. Engagement mode maximizes interactions by spotlighting all of the engagement tools available at their fingertips. 

     

    If your attendees can’t decide on what mode suits them, they have the opportunity to toggle between the two modes during the presentations duration. 


    Closing Thoughts

    It’s important to know that choosing virtual event software is not one size fits all. MeetingPlay offers the ability to customize and create an event that is truly yours. In addition, we partner with you to learn about what your event needs and we will build what is necessary to make your event a success.
