We have been a production partner to our friends Procurement Leaders for many years. However, traditionally we have only supported with their UK-side events.
In 2020, they went virtual, which allowed us to support their entire conference timetable. The first in the series was the Americas Procurement Congress and Awards.
Pytch’s involvement as production partner began with us working on the brand identity and content to produce animated versions of their event branding, video transitions and openers, and their show content itself.
Over 1200 attendees registered for the event, which was hosted on our platform partner Intelligo. We delivered 4 days of engaging conference content, featuring a main stage with chats, audience questions and polling, breakout discussions with access control for different ticket levels, custom agendas for all users, and a virtual exhibition for their sponsors.
The main stage was delivered from our Virtual Venue 2.0 studio, bringing in presenters remotely to speak whilst the event host delivered to our live camera. Just like a live event, our team managed live content, recorded videos, slides, and bringing in guests.
The evening of day 3 culminated in an awards ceremony to celebrate those procurement professionals who excelled in their field. We maintained energy and excitement with a completely new brand identity for the awards, punchy video content, and crucially, we facilitated a surprise live link-up to each of the winners to get their reactions in real-time!
The result was a resounding success, and we are looking forward to the World Procurement Week in November!
