Baptie & Company organizes virtual events to keep professionals updated on best practices, provide networking opportunities, and foster lasting connections within the industry. Their events focus on various themes, including annual events, women's leadership events, and panel discussions, with a particular emphasis on promoting women in the industry. As Baptie & Co's Head of Marketing, it's up to Madeline to lead her unstoppable team to engage audiences, bolster brand awareness, and create an unforgettable experience for customers and prospects.
For Madeline and the team, the aim is to deliver high-quality content and networking opportunities to their community members, enabling them to make better business decisions, gain inspiration, and develop professionally. The key challenges faced by Baptie & Co. include creating a seamless speaker experience, facilitating effective networking, and ensuring overall attendee satisfaction in virtual events.
Before discovering InEvent, the team at Baptie & Co. knew they were in need of a more intuitive, all-in-one event management platform that houses everything from onboarding speakers to creating the event agenda and even adding attendees to the platform. They needed a more efficient way to get attendees registered, allowing them to network, visit sponsor booths and engage with one another long before the event began.
When Madeline and the team at Baptie & Co. prioritized giving their speakers a stress-free experience, they anticipated other challenges. They also needed a platform that let their speakers easily access sessions, engage with the audience, and join other sessions as attendees. On top of that, they wanted to create a virtual event environment that felt just like being in person. It was all about enhancing interaction and conversation between attendees.
In need of something epic to encourage those valuable community-led conversations, Madeline looked for a pandemic-proof answer. Baptie & Co. aimed to grant sponsors a meaningful presence at their virtual events and sought a platform to enable them to deliver. The platform needed to offer designated sponsor rooms, enabling attendees to visit sponsor booths, access valuable documents, and initiate conversations with sponsors. In addition, it was crucial to deliver comprehensive post-event reports to sponsors. This would include attendance rates and engagement metrics, allowing them to evaluate and maximize ROI.
The challenges mentioned convinced Madeline and the Baptie & Co. team that InEvent was the platform for them — and the two came together to make recurring virtual events that gain more sponsorships and achieve a significant ROI .
InEvent offered Baptie & Co. a user-friendly platform facilitating the speakers experience . With a single link for accessing their sessions and other event sessions, speakers found it easy to navigate the platform. Additionally, InEvent provided pre-event dry-run sessions to familiarize speakers with the platform, ensuring seamless audio, video, and overall session delivery.
The networking features were instrumental in fostering attendee engagement. The platform facilitated real-time interaction, allowing attendees to chat, conduct video calls, and collaborate during sessions and breaks. Here's what Madeline had to say about it:
Attendees could easily initiate conversations and connect with industry peers, recreating the in-person networking experience virtually. The chat feature proved particularly popular, enabling ongoing discussions even after sessions concluded.
Another spectacular win for Baptie & Co.'s virtual events was getting more sponsors thanks to the InEvent sponsor booth capabilities. Not only could sponsors showcase their offerings, but attendees could also access sponsor booths, explore documents and connect with sponsors directly. The platform's design created an effective way for sponsors to engage and gave attendees a comprehensive view of products and services.
What's more? InEvent's post-event reporting feature provided sponsors with valuable insights. They were able to track attendance rates and booth visits to help measure event success and plan their future sponsorship opportunities more strategically.
Baptie & Co. received positive feedback from speakers, attendees, and sponsors regarding the ease of using the InEvent platform. The integrated speaker experience, interactive networking, and engaging sessions contributed to the attendees' satisfaction. Madeline says:
