How do you turn multi-day conferences that work perfectly with poster sessions and networking opportunities into the virtual world? How do you activate your audience engagement throughout all-conference days and deliver the main message? And do you present your vendors from the best possible perspective at a virtual venue? To answer those questions, we invited Dr. John Schreiner to share his experience and solutions at SpatialChat.

What challenges SpatialChat cover for your organization?
How to run a virtual conference and mimic the feel of the interactive and social aspects of a small live meeting.

What is the largest event you have organized in SpatialChat, in terms of attendees?
Me about 100 attendees (although a later conference might have had >200)

How do you use SpatiaChat?

1.  To replicate social interactions of IC3Ddose meeting (a very intimate and social conference)
2.  To run the IC3Ddose poster Session (later copied by COMP conference in Canada)

How do you customize your space?
Modified some rooms from SpatialChat standard rooms, received some location pictures from tourist centers of the city the conference was to be in (Quebec City) and my location (Kingston), used some personal photos.


What shall we improve in SpatialChat?
Provided some feedback already, and I see you have started some changes based on suggestions.

What new features should we develop in SpatialChat?
A personal subscription stream that can provide more rooms but irregular use

We had a lot of very positive feedback from conference attendees and from the commercial vendors in the exhibit hall.
