A Virtual Platform Company
Virtual events became one of our primary service offerings during the height of the pandemic. In 2021 HLK hired us to help coordinate a virtual XtendFlex Soybean product launch for Bayer. This project was a tall order — our team needed to find synergy between entertainment and farming in the soybean space.
We were tasked with talent booking, project management of the virtual broadcast and running the concert itself. Using the Regestrix platform, our production included live chat with moderation, live polls in real-time and live social media feeds. We implemented these features to encourage audience engagement throughout the broadcast. We chose Tyne Morgan, the host of the Missouri Farm Report, as the live emcee for the event.
When it came to entertainment, we identified rock or country as the genre of interest for Bayer’s audience and proceeded to vet potential talent. Working within their budget, we booked the perfect act — Dustin Lynch, a country artist and fellow soybean farmer. Lynch provided a pre-recorded testimonial on his experience in the soybean industry followed by a 30-minute solo acoustic performance for those in attendance.
Virtual Event Entertainment
Ultimately, our production saw 4,000 registrants, more than 70% of which were farmers, and over 3,300 tuned in for the live show. Our team put our heads together to find engaging solutions for this niche product launch. We demonstrated our ability to blend strategy with creativity to make events that are sure to resonate with the intended audience.
World Wide Technology
15 Events, 3 Days, 1 Conference
An impactful corporate meeting lives on long after a team leaves the confines of a hotel ballroom. It should be an event where company culture grows, connections thrive and the right entertainment makes memories. Contemporary helps World Wide Technology achieve this and more at their annual Global Sales and Leadership Conferences.
For nearly a decade, World Wide Technology has tasked us to fit more than fifteen events into a three-day conference period. An impossible feat for some event management companies, but we know how to make it happen.
With a guest list of more than 1,500 people, our team crafted each conference to benefit the professional growth of the attendees, help World Wide Technology make an impact in the conference host city and build an engaging list of activities to encourage camaraderie. Not only did we plan the conference breakout sessions and keynote speakers, but we coordinated fitness events like 5K runs and morning yoga, after-parties with a silent disco and a chance to give back through a volunteer event at a local nonprofit in the host city.
Featured entertainers have included legendary party-band, Party on the Moon, 80s tribute the Spazmatics and more!
Our entire team put every inch of their creativity and passion forward to build an unforgettable experience for each conference attendee by delivering from the moment they arrived until they ventured back home.
