How the University of Notre Dame Unlocked Attendee Insights & Inter–Event Analytics
Southern Methodist University
How the Office of Engaged Learning delivered a hybrid event before most event organizers had heard the term.
In February 2021, Camille McCallum had a problem. The previous September, she had hosted the twice annual Big iDeas Competition virtually for the first time in its history because of the pandemic. Now, Texas was reopening and Camille had to make a decision she'd never made before: In-Person or Virtual?
Camille chose to work with BuzzIt. With BuzzIt, both the in-person and the virtual audiences were able to take part in the event. It was the glue between all audiences.
The pitches were hosted in a private room that both in-person and virtual attendees could view and vote on. Another room was set up to allow in-person attendees to check out startup booths, while online attendees were able to browse their profiles and connect with them through the chat or other social media channels. With BuzzIt, Camille could focus on executing the event as one flow instead of managing two audiences.
Whether an attendee was in-person or virtual, they could:
- Access the Zoom link
- Find presenter profiles
- Connect with presenters
- Vote in the $5000 audience choice award
- View the schedule
