October Release: Big updates for your virtual events

Did you wonder what we have we been up to?! We worked hard to make your life as an online event host even better! In this newsletter, we want to update you on our latest features!

But before that a quick question: have you thought about a virtual Christmas gathering? Christmas or New Year events are moments to reflect, to come together, and look forward to the future! We help you to set up your virtual event with engaging ideas for virtual Christmas events to still create a sense of belonging and joy.


Voilà! Our new Event features

ENGAGEMENT GAMIFICATION. We’ve added an engagement module through which users collect points based on how they complete their profile, attend sessions, share comments, and visit virtual booths. Now you can track and reward the most engaged users. 

EVENTBRITE INTEGRATION. Have you thought about using Eventbrite to manage registrations? Brilliant! Now you can connect Eventbrite registrations to your iChair event and benefit from automatic attendee registration.

WORKSHOP RECORDINGS. Yes, we finally did it! You can now find your workshop room recordings (in URL format) organized in your Host overview. If you have a ‘Full-Service’ license, you can also download recordings as MP4 files.

… and there is more: Our Subscription Packages are here!

Unlimited events are at your fingertip: We now offer plans to use your event platform on a continuous basis as often and whenever you like. All licenses include the full iChair suite of features. Engage your community as never before with your organization’s own virtual meeting venue! Contact us to know more.
