The COVID-19 outbreak is forcing event organizers to go virtual. Here's why a virtual event is perhaps the best bet and how to do so successfully.
Swapcard Wins Best Technology Platform At Digital Event Awards
Swapcard has been named the Best Technology Platform at the Digital Event Awards. Discover what it takes to become the best tech on the market.
After being shortlisted for two categories, Best Technology Platform and Best Digital Conference – production budget less than £5000, the Digital Event Awards judges deliberated and chose Swapcard for the crowning award.
The Best Technology Platform category, kindly sponsored by The Event Site, showcases the tech provider that has developed the best platform to deliver digital events. According to the Digital Event Awards, judges were looking for ease of use, different functionalities, how the tech has been developed with sponsors, networking features and feedback from users.
"Clear contender as one of the best, strong investment and a platform well supported by event organisers with an easy to understand platform. They adapted well at the start of the crisis to make the platform better. The existing functionality is impressive as is their roadmap."
