In preparation for hosting the world’s largest virtual HR conference in 2017, the human resources software experts at BambooHR sought out a virtual events platform up to the task of connecting over 20,000 registrants from around the country for 60 highly engaging and interactive sessions.
Their research led them to 6Connex, a leading provider of cloud-based virtual events and environments. 6Connex offered BambooHR an innovative, easy-to-use and highly configurable platform that helped ensure the success of this large-scale online event.
BambooHR’s ultimate goal was to bring together industry leaders and human resource generalists to change the way human resource departments work, while keeping up with the fast pace of technology.
The idea behind offering such a large online event was to unite all sectors of the HR community, which includes promotions, recruitment, onboarding and education, while also generating leads for BambooHR and participating partners.
The online conference consisted of 60 short online sessions across 8 focused tracks, allowing attendees to choose their specific HR sector of interest.
The 6Connex virtual environment offered participants numerous areas to explore:
This room included 60 highly engaging and interactive sessions, each featuring a guest speaker along with a live questions and answer session side-by-side with the presentation.
Key partners were featured in the Expo Hall, each with their own branded booth to share downloads, videos, and other resources with attendees. Attendees could also request a demo from any sponsor, with the click of a button, using the 6Connex call-to-action feature.
The event resource center offered participants a central place to explore surveys, eBooks, interview templates, blogs, brochures, and more!
