Convening Leaders Online

PCMA’s MashUp Studio, Hybrid Event, and Rebroadcast

Thanks to PCMA’s commitment to digital event technology, Convening Leaders’ in-person and remote attendees once again are receiving a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the program — and they’ll also be able to experience their favorite moments again via rebroadcast.

Throughout Convening Leaders, the Virtual Edge Institute (VEI) team has produced the Convening Leaders Hybrid Event, using many of the best-practice techniques featured in VEI’s Digital Event Strategist certification online course.

As part of the hybrid event, the MashUp Studio has broadcast live interviews that give attendees more information about producing hybrid events. MashUp Studio hosts Amanda Marijanovic and Sarah Soliman have sat down with the most talked-about presenters, shared on-site news, and also engaged with the remote audience. Attendees were able to watch as the broadcast happened, allowing them to peek behind the curtain of PCMA’s transparent studio. Learning-moment bubbles provided explanations of the action before them, explaining latency and other live-streaming challenges.

In case you missed it, PCMA will bundle select programming from Convening Leaders 2016 for a rebroadcast on Feb. 9 from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. The complimentary online event will feature the top five sessions from this year’s meeting.
