Virtual Events for All
Virtual events extend your reach beyond geographic boundaries and beyond your current members. And we believe events should be inclusive and accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. The Forj platform is ADA and WCAG compliant, and makes events accessible to attendees with hearing, vision, motor and other types of impairments to configure the experience to meet their needs.
This welcoming space is the primary navigation point to engage attendees in the event and is fully customizable to your brand, sponsors and event specifications. Drive attendees to exhibit halls, educational content tracks, networking lounges and one-on-one meetings, following their personalized agenda. If you’re hosting a hybrid event, you can replicate the look and feel of your live event here!
Host your educational content, keynote speakers and other sessions via live or recorded videoconference which can be streamed real-time for hybrid events. Optional configurations can include virtual break out rooms to enable smaller group discussions, and attendees are also engaged via live chat, surveys and live Q&A sessions. Video on demand is available after the event for attendees that may have missed a session. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) can also be tracked for attendees.
Exhibit Halls & Booths
Event halls can be sponsored and themed to create different experiences for attendees, and exhibitors are fully searchable to make it easy for attendees to find and engage with them.
Each exhibitor can select a 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional booth template – or design and upload their own – to create their own look and feel, with support from our guides and classes offered three days/week. Attendees can leave a business card at the booth, click on a video product demo, download collateral, enter a raffle, live chat with booth personnel or set up a meeting with them. Exhibitors receive lead contacts from business cards left during the event, as well as reporting on booth engagement.
There are endless possibilities for networking lounges to be used for career networking, moderated discussions after a keynote speech, a product launch event with media and buyers, virtual cocktail parties with clients, or a meet & greet with a speaker. Gamification can be used to incentivize attendees to join an activity.
