The CEO of Salesforce, Marc Benioff, has dubbed his user conference, Dreamforce, “the best Dreamforce ever.” We definitely agree.
Anyone who has ever planned a hybrid event has had sweat-inducing nightmares about failure.
“As an event planner, you’re already sticking your neck on the line with all the stuff you’re doing at the event. Then someone says we want to broadcast everything over the web and make it publically-facing. At that point it doesn’t matter if your in-person event goes perfectly. If the stream fails, it’s a failure,” says Donny Neufuss, senior account manager for Mediasite Events.
‘Calling All Heroes’: Mediasite Saves the Day When Summer Snow Strikes Instructure’s User Conference
Instructure was ‘Calling All Heroes’ from across the globe at its fourth annual user conference, InstructureCon, earlier this summer in Park City, Utah.
More than 1,500 education professionals who use the company’s learning management system, Canvas, were on site to network and learn from each other during the outdoor conference. Attendees donned superhero capes while Star Wars Storm troopers, Superman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Spiderman and more wandered the conference floor.
Last week, Sonic Foundry sponsored the Technology in Business Schools Roundtable (TBSr) 2014 Conference.
TBSr provides opportunities for technology leaders in business schools to share best practices and collaborate with colleagues around the world. This year TBSr took place at Boise State University College of Business & Economics, and because Boise State is a Mediasite user, it streamed the entire conference live and on-demand for TBSr members.
