Legal Accelerators leveraged Sequel's technology and flipped the virtual conference concept on its head.
Legal Accelerators is a hybrid international conference and exhibition dedicated to legal technology, innovation & connected domains.
Use Case: Conference & Expo
Modules Used: Virtual & Hybrid Stage, Networking Hub, Chat+
It has always been the mission of founders of the Legal Accelerators to create an all-inclusive gathering of Europe’s leading minds in law and technology in one room. However, the rise of Covid-19 cases drove event organizers to pivot to a fully virtual conference, and internal discussions turned to finding ways to engage the audience despite not being able to meet in-person.
Knowing that audience engagement is at Sequel's core, Legal Accelerators partnered with us to organize a two-day live-streamed virtual conference focused on Legal Tech and Digitalization of the legal sector.
Legal Accelerators co-founder Mihai Carabas shared the feedback he received from one of the participants,
“it was amazing. Everyone was satisfied by the conference and the way it has been organized. The capabilities offered by Sequel's components is one of the main drivers for that result”
While Carabas and the team were hard at work creating their 2020 programming lineup, a local design firm was imagining an online space that would become Legal Accelerators branded website. Built in WordPress, it couldn’t be easier to embed Sequel's live event modules like the Virtual Stage and the Networking Hub. With a packed two-day agenda, 40+ speaker pages, an Expo Hall, and a general networking area — the site was ready for prime-time.
In order to stay on brand, the event organizers utilized Sequel's Customization and Branding Suite to customize every element—down to the colors of the text and glow behind presenters.
With branding nailed down, it was time to focus on the content. Some sessions were completely pre-recorded and played back to the live audience. The organizers leveraged every aspect of Sequel's support for virtual, in-person, and pre-recorded content.
With the web experience ready to go and the programming finalized, it was finally time to hit the “go live” button! The two-day event went off without a hitch; attendees and event organizers alike were able to take something meaningful away from the experience.
“Sequel's technology has truly helped us captivate our partners, speakers, exhibitors, and attendees in a simpler, yet genuinely engaging manner. Their product suite enabled us to create a tailored experience for everyone involved. The Networking Hub and Audience Engagement tools allowed us to engage with our attendees, challenging them with everything from thought-provoking polls to small group discussions.” Carabas said.
One of the 250 attendees, María Jesús González-Espejo, Vice President, European Legal Technology Association (ELTA), shared her feedback of the experience,
“Legal Accelerators has almost certainly been the best virtual conference I have attended these months. Original and fun events have been the Romanian beer tasting – which I previously received here in Madrid, networking meetings, the closing live concert. A 10 in innovation and quality.”
After two hybrid programs powered by Sequel, Carabas and the team are working on Legal Accelerator’s next hybrid program. This time, though, they’ll be expanding the experience with an event series leading up to the main conference and expo, all powered by Sequel on their own website. Sequel is proud to support their team in creating a virtual space for legal minds to connect, learn and easily explore Legal Accelerator's solutions year-round.
