And just like that, 2022 is pretty much done…

As the year draws to a close, we can’t help but reflect on the amazing events we supported and enabled during the year. Here are a few of our top highlights:

EY Core Skills

EY’s Core Skills 2022 had one goal in mind: to build a better working world. The purpose of the event was to embark on an exciting journey of learning, discovery, and networking with fellow colleagues and trainees from Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. The event was jam-packed, exciting, and entertaining – not surprising at all, since the theme was Alice in Wonderland!

Flock powered this event with:

  • Event RSVP Landing Pages with customised forms to gather key attendee information,
  • Software to personalise communication with attendees and increase engagement,
  • Onsite Support for a whole week to manage attendee registrations, and
  • A Mobile Event App to organise and manage all the event content.

This event also marked the first time we introduced the function on our RFID attendee tracking system. Thanks to this powerful tracking technology, queues and manual attendee scanning are eliminated and all attendee movements throughout your event can be tracked and recorded. Attendees simply enter the venue passing strategically-placed scanning antennae which pick up a special barcode at the back of their event ID tags, and the system does the rest.

Allan Gray Makers Fest

Allan Gray Makers is a South African initiative funded by Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Endowment. This event provides transferable entrepreneurial skills and support to youth who are technically or vocationally talented. The theme of this year’s Fest was to connect entrepreneurs in the technical and vocational space to their peers and industry experts.

Flock powered this event with:

  • SMS Invitations that were sent to all guests and provided easy access to all event info,
  • RSVP Landing Pages for guests to register, read more about the event, view the programme, obtain directions to the venue, and
  • Onsite Support for two days to assist with registrations and ensure the event ran smoothly.

JSE SheInvest Summit

This year, the JSE held their fifth annual SheInvest Summit. The event focused on empowering women through financial literacy and education, and we couldn’t have been more honoured to assist them to create a beautiful event for the third year in a row.

Flock powered this event with:

  • A Mobile App for attendees to access information and communications from SheInvest,
  • The Virtual Event, which had fantastic engagement and interactions throughout the event, and
  • A ticket-payment feature that streamlined registrations.

Africa Travel Indaba

Africa’s Travel Indaba 2022 was a boon for the continent’s tourism sector as well as for the host city of Durban. Hundreds of buyers and exhibitors from 55 countries descended on Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre to trade on the continent’s best tourism products and experiences. Of the 55 countries, 19 were from the African continent.

Flock powered this event with:

  • A Custom Branded App, which:
    • Hosted all event-related information,
    • Helped users create a business profile for delegates to view and book appointments with fellow attendees,
    • Allowed users to follow Twitter posts featuring the Meetings Africa hashtag, and
    • Helped users navigate Africa’s Travel Indaba Trade Floor – all in the palm of their hands.
  • Onsite Support to assist attendees with downloading the mobile app and help with app content updates and push notifications, and
  • An interactive Chatbot that answers the delegates’ questions in real-time.

SA Investment Conference

The primary goal of the 4th SA Investment Conference (SAIC) was to build on the previous editions’ accomplishments by highlighting South Africa’s strengths and competitive advantages. It also aimed to showcase why South Africa is an attractive investment location for local and international firms wishing to expand into Africa.

Flock powered this event with:

  • A Virtual Event Platform where guests were able to Livestream sessions and network with each other,
  • Onsite Support, which included a camera crew to capture every detail of the event and manage streams, and
  • A Custom Branded Mobile App for attendees to navigate the event, keep up to date with event news, and stream sessions at the conference.
