The plan was to invite all the speakers, sponsors, and committee members to a pre conference mixer the night before where they would get to mingle, have a cocktail, listen to music and hear a little from the conference organizers.
Once it was determined that an in person event was not going to happened, they reached out to us for a virtual solution. VLS hosted a Virtual Lounge which included a cocktail and snack kit delivery before the event, an in lounge tutorial from a bartender on mixing the drink, a DJ spinning songs live, professional hosts, and presentations from the conference organizers...all within a setting that was as close as you could get to an in person event. Another plus was that we were still able to utilize the same vendors that they would have used had they been able to hold their event live. We call that a WIN-WIN!
VLS can recreate a Virtual Lounge for any organization, corporation, or group of friends or family that would like to connect virtually in this time of limited in person gatherings. Every part of it can be customized to our clients wishes.

On an early Monday morning the founder of the Teaching Black History Confernce, LaGarrett King, called us with a huge SOS requesting "Help!" with his conference that had grown, practically overnight, from 200 attendees to over 800 and was scheduled to begin just four days later. "Could we build a portal", he said, "to accomodate over 800 attendees, and 65 live presenter sessions over the course of 2 full days? Can it include 6 rooms, complete livestream, ticket sales, chat, networking and a resource library stocked with their presentations and other resource documents?". "Why, yes we can" we said...and we did, in just four days. Plus, our system sold over 200 more conference tickets for them, automatically, and they didn't need to lift a single finger for that!
Since then we have taken the feedback from attendees and worked to make improvements on the networking and socializing aspects of our system. We believe our next iteration will be very appealing to all our future conference attendees because you will be able to directly connect to other attendees in ways you already understand and use everyday in social media.
