EventsAIR drives event management software further with its new release of OnAIR


Version 2 of the OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution increases interactive engagement.

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND  – The events industry landscape has transformed to an online environment overnight with event organizers looking at ways to retain business and engage with prospective clients to avoid cancellation or postponements of events. During this time, EventsAIR launched its OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution in May 2020, which gave event organizers a way to curate content in an interactive environment. Since then, OnAIR has enabled a multitude of events by a range of clients to be presented virtually, fulfilling both the event objective and increasing the reach to more potential participants. Now in July, EventsAIR has released Version 2 of OnAIR, introducing more features to improve attendee engagement and avoid online fatigue.

The EventsAIR team has been working around the clock to assist event planners globally to deliver virtual events as well as looking at ways that OnAIR could be enhanced. With over forty thousand (and rapidly climbing) attendees having used OnAIR, it is set to be an essential tool on the road to business recovery for event organizers.

Version 2 of OnAIR includes a list of new features to engage, educate and motivate virtual attendees. These include:

– Gamification where attendees can earn points based on online behaviors
– Full Custom Branding and White Labelling to personalize the event brand
– Instant Live Polling that is controlled by the presenter (or moderator) in real time
– Analytics Dashboard to measure attendance, origin, and a range of statistics
– Poster Gallery that is an addition to ePoster, allowing for a large number of interactive
presentations to be filtered and searched
– Discussion Forums to encourage attendee interaction and to get the conversation started during
sessions
– Pre-scheduled meetings with attendees, sponsors or exhibitors throughout the event

“OnAIR just keeps on getting better at delivering new and exciting events. It is great to see the range of different styles of virtual events coming to life in place of meetings, conference, and trade shows that would have been cancelled if not for OnAIR”, says Joe Ciliberto, Global Director Sales and Marketing EventsAIR.

Trevor Gardiner, CEO of EventsAIR, says, “The feedback from our clients on how OnAIR has given them a real solution to run great interactive virtual events as opposed to webinar-style meetings, has been encouraging. The roadmap for EventsAIR and OnAIR will continue to improve the ways of enhancing the attendee experience in all event environments, whether they be virtual, hybrid or live.

As hybrid events become more common, the OnAIR solution combined with the EventsAIR platform will deliver a seamless experience for blended live and virtual events, connecting live and virtual audiences. The range of different collaborative and interactive tools such as live Q&A, meeting hub, gamification, live polling and exhibitor marketplace enrich the virtual engagement experience while expanding the reach to audiences around the world.

Global Transformation Ecosystem OpenExO Announces ExO World: Now! Online Collaborative Event


https://www.prfire.com/

As lockdown continues around the world, the energetic and agile team behind OpenExO, the global transformation ecosystem connecting world-class professionals, has announced ExO World: Now! a global one-day online event on 12 May 2020 that will explore the current scenario and find solutions to global challenges triggered and highlighted by COVID-19.

ExO World: Now! is a condensed, one day version of the very successful ExO World Digital Summit that took place on 14-16th April 2020, where more than 2,800 people and 130 speakers gathered inside an interactive online ‘festival’ with one sole purpose – envision how the current global situation can serve as an opportunity to rethink and recreate our future. The 3-day virtual gathering resulted in 56 hours of awe-inspiring content, 200 breakout sessions, 2,700 networking connections, and 10,300 chat messages discussing transformative topics like Biotechnology, SDGs, the Future of Government to psychedelics, peak performance and the exponential renaissance.

Attendees like Valentine Stockdale, Managing Director of Strategy at Blueprints said ExO World was “the best event I have ever attended” and others described the event as “game-changing, trailblazing, a breakthrough, brilliant, truly amazing, a festival like no other, and much better than traditional conferences”.

“After ExO World in April the requests by attendees came pouring in so we responded with ExO World: Now! to help re-live the original atmosphere, content, interactions and the sense of magic we all experienced in April,” said OpenExO Chairman & Founder and lead author of Exponential Organizations, Salim Ismail.

ExO World was conceptualized as a result of the COVID19 global pandemic, with a fast-thinking and nontraditional approach to a global gathering to create, share and evaluate toolsets and ideas to be implemented at a personal, company, or institutional level. Bringing forward their remote-working expertise the OpenExO organizers are aimed at regenerating humanity forward while simultaneously shining a light on the opportunities and positive transformation that can be accomplished virtually while achieving a zero-carbon, efficient, personalized, and highly engaging event experience with breakout sessions, networking and open spaces for collaborative solution-building.

The aim of ExO World is for the proceeds to fund initiatives and outcomes from the events that are aligned with transforming humanity. As a result of April’s ExO World event, $10,000 was donated to DreamTank, a nonprofit aimed at igniting kids through entrepreneurship and innovation.

“The ExO World format was something the world has never seen before and it worked extremely well. We set a massive transformative purpose (MTP) of transforming the world, then we gave attendees a scaffolding by which they could find their own path during the event, whether through climate change, AI or transforming their company… leading them to a huge outcome that they may not have known possible, making them very engaged and excited about the possibilities of the future” says Salim Ismail.

Speakers include:
John Hagel, Salim Ismail, Jason Silva, Nishan Degnarain, Sylvia Earle, Heidi Cuppari, Jeff Booth, Divya Chander, Raymond McCauley, Scott Summit, Andrew Yang, Jerry Michalski, Ramez Naam,
Nicole Dreiske, Jim Kwik, Steven Kotler, Faiz Nazarali, Jim Harris, Vishen Lakhiani, John Mackey, Emilie Sydney-Smith, Nishan Degnarain, Zenia Tata, Sylvia Benito, Ajay Agarwal and more.

HBU to Host Women in Entrepreneurship Networking Event
15000 Cubits Agency Founder Leah Faul Will Be Guest Panelist

HOUSTON, TX — The Center for Christianity in Business (CCB) will host Women in Entrepreneurship: A Faith Perspective on Friday, January 31 at 12:00 p.m. The networking luncheon and panel will take place at the Morris Cultural Arts Center and will feature a panel discussion with prominent women in business in the Houston area.

The CCB is an educational and community outreach effort with the intent of fostering the integration of Christian faith and business within the local, regional, national, and global business spheres via research, speaker series, mentoring and education. To that end, the organization regularly brings students, educators, policymakers and business professionals together in forums like this one.

Panelists slated for the event include Tina Murray, President of Mind Dance Marketing; Bonnie Helvie, Owner of Bonnie Group; Sharon Saunders, VP for Advancement and University Relations at HBU; and Leah Faul, Owner of 15000 Cubits. Topics will include challenges for female entrepreneurs, practical implementation of values systems in the workplace, and work-life balance.

Panelist Leah Faul is deeply committed to the topic to be addressed. Even her company’s namesake, a nod to Noah’s Ark, is a tribute to her high regard for aligning business vision with biblical values. “I couldn’t be more honored to be included in the Women in Entrepreneurship Panel,” Faul said. “I’m thrilled that the integration of faith and female entrepreneurism has been identified as an important talking point. The world needs more female entrepreneurs putting God at the forefront of their business decisions and professional life — and I’m so happy to be able to impart what I’ve learned to the next generation of leaders in our community.”

More information about the event can be found at hbu.edu/ccbseminar. Interested participants may register by January 23 online. The cost is $25 for professionals and $10 for students.
