Host engaging online events

The Smart City Innovation Lab (SCIL) was hosting this year’s GRONEN2020 conference, but due to COVID-19, they were forced to go virtual. They needed a central platform where all sessions are accessible, a place to store papers and videos, and the possibility to link different video conferencing solutions. SCOOCS, a spin-off of SCIL was able to setup a platform for just that purpose.

A virtual plaza for online events

Our aim was to transform a traditionally analog conference into an engaging virtual experience, enhancing learning, sharing, and networking moments in a low-tech, cost-effective, and sustainable way. As we did not find any satisfying solution for engaging virtual conferencing experiences we decided to develop the system we needed ourselves (admittedly, we had a head-start as we have been developing the award-winning platform Venturely.io). And here we are, iChair.org is your new virtual plaza for virtual conferences.

Are you planning to host a virtual event?

We know what it means to host a conference but also to create smooth user experiences. That is why we developed iChair easy as pie! No complicated setup, no installations, no frustrating confirmation loops.
