If you are wondering how SCOOCS can empower you to exceed the needs and expectations of your stakeholders, this short story about how Liferay DEVCON team was able to WOW world-leading software engineers and full stack developers was written for you!
Endless possibilities for a truly unique online event experience
Liferay sets the bar pretty high, being a digital experience platform leader with world-class software engineers and full-stack developers. As DEVCON is a renowned event with established branding, using the SCOOCS self-service suite of features, the team could directly carry over the events’ unique design into the platform without any custom development.
Amazing custom fields for smart events
Liferay DEVCON team wished to entertain their attendees with an icon of vintage gaming that has a very special place in all our hearts: Monsieur et Mademoiselle Pacman. To make this wish come true, SCOOCS built the possibility to include an HTML iFrame field to the dashboard of the event where event attendees can play a quick game or listen to a Spotify list.
Multiple Stages and Simultaneous Sessions
SCOOCS enables event hosts to create their dream virtual venue. With such a rich and diverse agenda, the ability to create, customize and manage different stages with simultaneous sessions was essential for the Liferay DEVCON team!
The main stage was running during the 3 full-days, welcoming various keynote speakers with insightful talks. Moreover, attendees could also join four different workshop sessions and enjoy several thematic coffee lounges (who asked for networking spaces?). If anyone got lost or needed help, SCOOCS tech support was always available to answer any doubts or troubleshoot any technology-related issues.
Engagement and networking
Taking the “Work hard, play hard” motto to the next level, Liferay DEVCON leveraged SCOOCS’s features to foster attendees’ engagement and provide nurturing networking spaces, including the Match Roulette, an intelligent Matchmaking algorithm, and theme-based Networking Tables. Every session attended, every message sent or liked, every virtual booth visited was converted into engagement points in the most competitive leaderboard we have ever witnessed! In the end, the winners were rewarded with exciting prizes!
