Disability:IN 2020 Virtual Meeting

edgefactory was thrilled to partner with Q&A Events and Disability:IN on transforming a traditionally, face to face, annual meeting to one of the early adopters of a virtual environment.

Challenges:

  • Create an engaging environment that isn’t a typical Zoom meeting.
  • Inclusion and accessibility. (ability for those who are hearing or visually impaired or disabled to attend easily)
  • American Sign Language Interpreters and Closed Captioning to be performed live during the conference.
  • 100% remote presenters sharing presentations and controlling them remotely
  • Socially distanced crew

Solution:

  • Pre-recording of panels, and presenters allowed for flawless execution and an enhanced experience for attendees
  • Graphically enhance the stream
  • Allow for brand consistency and recognition
  • Intentional spacing and room for both ASL and CC
  • Provided waiting room sponsor loop to allow for sponsor income and fulfillment
