Company: International Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance Network
Job Title: Executive Director
The International Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance (IMCS) Network appointed Outsourced Events (OE) as our agency for the first-ever virtual Global Fisheries Enforcement Training Workshop 2021.
The agenda, which ran over two days, was a mixture of live and pre-recorded keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions, roundtable discussions, papers and “meet the author” sessions with over 250 speakers and delegates dialling in from all over the World. This was the first time that the conference was run virtually, so we were understandably nervous about what to expect … but we needn’t have worried.
OE did a fantastic job of working with us as a team to re-create the live event on their recommended virtual platform. They were extremely consultative in their approach to creating the best solution, advised on pre-recorded sessions with live Q&A, built out the platform and managed all technical production elements on the day. Post event, we have received numerous compliments from the attendees and speakers saying it was the best virtual event they have attended and as an organization, we are thrilled with the results. Notably, their entire staff were consummate professionals, extremely engaging, and went out of their way to support or otherwise respond to our every question or request. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Outsourced Events to others and, in fact, am looking at further opportunities to have OE support additional virtual events the IMCS Network plans to hold. We are MORE than extremely satisfied!
