We did it. The first fully digital Matching Day was somehow the “masterpiece” after a year of learning how to do digital events.
A main stage with live streaming of 20 technology pitches and 5 talks from locations across Europe, 20 separate booths with pre-recorded presentations and on-demand live sessions, and the opportunity to do one-on-one meetings – scheduled or instant. All without any major difficulties – kudos to our platform Hopin and our technical team who did a great job, again.
Weeks of planning, preparation and rehearsal lead to a highly interactive event, in which all our technology providers ended up with several contacts to further proceed.
All technology booths had on average 20 visitors and three contact requests of people who wanted to be contacted afterwards, additional to contacts already made during the event. Nearly 50 instant one-to-one meetings and more than 100 private chats were made using the event platform.
All technologies are still accessible on our website and the opportunity to contact the scientists is still given. Of course START:IP will be continued, you can learn more about it here.
