Wow, what a year it’s been! As we approach the end of 2021, we thought we’d take a look at the top events we had the opportunity to assist with this year.
2021’s Top Events
We started 2021 with a bang, with the PSG Think Big Series event in January. The digital event attracts thought leaders from around South Africa and hosts discussions about various topics spanning from education to the current economic climate. Speakers included big thinkers like Tim Modise, Justice Malala, and Moeletsi Mbeki.
We took care of everything for the online event, from the invites and landing page, to the live stream and surveys.
The milestone 60th conference of UNISA, the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA), and the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) was hosted online with the help of the Flock Eventing Platform from 26 to 31 July 2021.
The five-day event had more than 300 expert speakers as well as several interesting panel discussions, with over 100 delegates in attendance each day who logged into the event from around the world.
Flock provided the virtual platform, event social media marketing and engagement support for the duration of the digital conference. Our powerful and engaging eventing platform enabled the delegates to:
- Chat with each other during online breakaway sessions, which encouraged engagement and commentary
- Access support through the chat function
- Network and attend in-app meetings
- Visit sponsor booths and engage with exhibitors
- Attend a variety of sessions that took place simultaneously
On 21 August 2021, the JSE held their fourth annual SheInvest Summit, a virtual event aimed at empowering women with financial literacy. According to their research, women are most likely to be working in sectors hit the hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic. Women are also 24% more likely to lose their jobs or suffer from a steep income fall. These statistics are against the backdrop of an already prevalent gender pay gap.
With this information in mind, the summit’s program was aimed at helping women plan for a future of unknowns, and featured financial and investment keynote speakers such as Maya Fisher-French, Mapalo Makhu, Nerina Visser.
We took great pride in assisting the JSE with their event by providing the RSVP platform, virtual platform, mobile app, and engagement management. The online event hosted close to 600 attendees, had over 2,000 engagement views on the events app, and positive feedback from the audience regarding the presentations and content.
This year’s Global Investment Summit was all about navigating disruption, and professionals within the wealth and investment management industry joined from across the globe for this leading investment conference.
The summit was held on 13 and 14 September 2021, where we had the opportunity to provide Nedgroup with their event landing page and virtual platform. Our application made it incredibly easy for organisers to manage the event and communicate with their guests.
Anglo American PIT Symposium
We had the great pleasure of assisting Anglo American host their Professionals in Training (PIT) Symposium this year, which was a great success.
Anglo American is a global mining company with a portfolio that spans diamonds, platinum, copper, iron ore, and more. The PIT symposium is a highlight in Anglo American’s graduate programme, which is open to top-performing learners with an interest in disciplines relevant to the mining industry such as Mining, Engineering, Process, Geosciences and Finance.
