Beamium at the K&K HR Congress 2015

Added value for conferences with Beamium

In November, Beamium partnered up with the K&K HR Congress in Weimar. The annual convention is organised by K&K HR Services GmbH, which belongs to the 7S Group. At the heart of the event were workshops and presentations held by renowned HR professionals.

Close cooperation with the event organisers

Prior to the K&K HR Congress, we closely cooperated with the organisers in order to ensure that the conference would run smoothly and according to plan. The organisers received a mailing pack from us with which they could familiarise the attendants and speakers with our online solution. Prior to the event we created two suitable sample presentations for the K&K HR Congress and provided a mailing with the relevant presentation IDs. The attendants could therefore learn how to use our application .

On the day of the K&K HR Congress we were present onsite with a stand in order to introduce us to the visitors, answer questions in person. Furthermore, we actively supported all presenters who were holding workshops and speeches at the congress. The close cooperation with the organisers paid off. All presentations at the K&K HR Congress were a success and both presenters and attendants were very fond of the tool.

Mr. Hillinger, a presenter in the field of labour law, spontaneously decided to utilise Slideflight for his presentation on the day of the congress. We used the tool on the computer in the lecture hall and uploaded his presentation on the spot. As a result the K&K HR Congress audience could download the presentation within just a few minutes and we were ready to go. This was Mr Hilliger’s first experience with implementing Slideflight and he was immediately convinced of its merits: ‘For me as a presenter, the solution is very innovative. The K&K HR Congress audience could more easily follow my presentation using the PowerPoint Add-in and the digital handout that was instantly available rounded off the overall service. Overall a very pragmatic solution.’

Future cooperation at conferences

Irini Gianotti, member of the organisation committee of the K&K HR Congress was also impressed by our startup: ‘The innovative concept meets today’s new, digital expectations. It is easy-to-use, digital and a great response to the ‘Green IT’ trend, as it is environmentally friendly and sustainable. Furthermore, it allows for a new conference concept in which presenters and participants effectively communicate in a more interactive way. Hence, we can dismiss outdated conference concepts and increase the value offered to both presenters and participants.’ Positive Feedback from attendants and speakers Since we are continuously striving to improve our service, feedback is of great importance to us. Therefore, we handed out surveys to the participants of the K&K HR Congress and received extremely positive responses. Our tool was described as being ‘easy-to-use’, ‘enriching’ and ‘straight-forward’. Over 90% would use the innovative solution again and would recommend it to their colleagues.
