R Studio has been a partner of our for years. In normal times, we would travel with them to their annual in-person conference that would have over 3,500 participants from all over the world. But these are not normal times. So the folks at R asked if we would be up for a challenge. They wanted to produce a 24 hour virtual broadcast that would be available for all of their followers from around the world. Their goal was to avoid anyone needing to stay up until an unreasonable hour to see their favorite speaker! And it would have to be completely virtual. A herculean challenge!!
Their program consisted of:
- Talks, both from well-known community members and RStudio employees, and lots of new voices!
- 3 x 40-minute Keynote talks
- 31 x 20-minute talks
- 21 x 5-minute lightning talks
- All talks captioned in English, Spanish, and Chinese
- Live speaker Q&A for each talk
- Birds-of-a-Feather sessions
Our client wanted 4 channels each embedded on Intellium (a virtual conference platform). A Keynote Channel and channels for Tracks A, B and C all showing different content at different times but ALL of them had live Q&A segments after each talk that we organized and brought in via Zoom. Additionally, they wanted captions windows for each track in English, Spanish and Chinese.
It was a monumental production utilizing 16 tricasters, a multitude of computers and other devices and a crew of over twenty in two different studios across town from each other. All of this was done with our client completely virtual. 32 hours later it was completed and a success.
We are still waiting on the final analytics but last year we reached over 80 countries and we know we did more this year.
