Localiza is the largest car rental company in Latin America. The company invests in recurring corporate events to assist in the training of its thousands of employees. It's the case of Localiza Convention, one of the largest events of the company, ideal moment to align, inspire and engage leaders of all teams. In 2019, the event was attended by over a thousand people, including leaders and sales staff, to discuss building the future of mobility.
Panda Promotions and Events is one of the most traditional agencies in the industry. Operating for 38 years, they have major brands as clients, such as Rede Globo, Vallourec and Localiza itself.
Localiza hired Panda to assist in the production of the Localiza Convention. They wanted participants to have a customizable application with all the important event data for each user, such as the agenda of the events they were going to attend, and that offered a real possibility of participant engagement. In addition, organizers were looking for a way to send instant messages to guests with real-time updates during the event. So Panda found InEvent event system to answer the needs of the client.
Localiza team already had in mind that it would be important to count on a customized app for the participants of the event. As the theme of the Conference was Futurize, it would be coherent to offer digital communication during the event, following the innovation and technology theme that permeated this edition.
Panda Productions then had a big challenge: to accelerate and effectively communicate with participants during the Convention. Besides, they had the concern of engaging guests with the exclusive app made for the event.
By hiring InEvent, clients had an easy-to-use application, customized with the event identity and tailored to it's needs.
Through the event app, organizers were able to share information with attendees at any time through the news feed and push notifications, which was Localiza's primary wish. Unlimited notifications could be sent directly to all participants at once or separated by segments. This optimizes and accelerates communication with the public.
Regarding engagement during the event, InEvent app offers, among other functionalities:
InEvent App still offers several other functionalities like:
Customers have been able to note that InEvent goes way beyond an application: event organizers have a complete event management platform, where they can control everything from CRM to budget and other strategic planning tools to use before, during and after the event. All with the credibility of a platform that saves files in the cloud, ensuring data security and easy access to them (be it a computer, tablet or a smartphone).
It's hard to compete with other apps the participant already has on his smartphone. The easy use of InEvent app, with a clean interface and mainly it's usefulness to the Convention, certainly helped the participants to interact more with it. This enhanced engagement with the event.
