Event Hotels launch new multi-site virtual conferencing offering

Event Hotels has unveiled its new purpose-built hybrid solution designed to simplify virtual conferencing.

Event Conference Connect brings QT, Rydges and Atura in-house event services and technologies together through a centralised event and AV team, to deliver conferencing that can combine live and virtual elements from multiple locations across Australia and New Zealand.

The solution streamlines the process of sourcing, booking and managing multiple conference and event spaces, catering, accommodation and technical requirements, through one centralised project team and technical control room.

“Event Conference Connect has been designed to assist businesses and teams continue to come together, despite travel restrictions and the need to accommodate physical distancing,” said Travis Smith, head of sales for Event Hotels & Resorts.

“A major part of team building relies on bringing people together to share, collaborate and establish strong business relationships, and in the past this was often done over a number of days through conferencing, dinner and networking events.

“In a COVID-safe environment, traditional conferencing and events have needed to be reimagined; increasingly relying on technology to ensure teams can stay aligned and connected.

“We have seen that perceived complexities have led to a common misconception that virtual conferencing has to be hard and expensive to execute. Through Event Conference Connect we are able to challenge this notion and revolutionise the way event organisers and businesses approach organising virtual events and conferences.”
