Innovation Doesn’t Stop. Transitioning To Webinars In Response To COVID-19
Luxatia International was founded to provide a platform for industry experts to come together to connect, share ideas and debate about trending topics across several industries. We conduct thorough market research to host summits that will facilitate meaningful discussions around global tech that will empower us today and in the future. We fully believe these discussions are still very important and should not be put on pause because of the circumstances but we are aware of the seriousness of COVID-19 and understand our responsibility to adapt to how these events are held.
After many in-depth discussions internally and with our sponsors, speakers, partners and delegates, we’ve all concluded it is in the benefit of everyone to transition a few summits into webinars until the effects of COVID-19 start to diminish. Travel advisories and restrictions rapidly increased and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to share in these discussions.
Being a small, independent business, this decision did not come lightly but we are confident we are doing the right thing, as the health and safety of not only our staff but of the venue employees and all attendees are our utmost concern.
For the webinar, a full agenda will be available on the set dates of the event and both days will contain experiences, projects and insights from global brands. You can request a free brochure at any time before the summit to see the full line up of speakers. Everyone who registers for a webinar will have access to view pre-recorded sessions on demand.
We feel like this is a better alternative than a live stream as everyone’s schedules have been disrupted by working from home, children being out of school, etc. The pre-recorded sessions allow you to start and stop the recordings as you need to.
Here are the Summits that will be available as webinars:
- World Future Ports Webinar (April 2nd & 3rd)
- 4th Annual Ticketing Innovations Webinar (April 23rd & 24th)
- World Intelligent Buildings Webinar (April 23rd & 24th)
- 5th Corporate Learning and Development Webinar (May 14th & 15th)
- 2nd World Voice Innovation Webinar (June 4th & 5th)
We understand the main concern with switching to webinars is the lack of in-person networking. We don’t believe it would beneficial to try and group people into video chats for networking opportunities so instead, we have a LinkedIn group set up for each of our summits. Each person that registers receives a link to join that group. We encourage you to use this resource as a networking tool.
You can post in the group for everyone, maybe telling a bit about yourself and discussing any projects you are working on or challenges you are facing or you can scan through the members of the group and see if there is anyone specific you’d like to connect with. Reach out to them through LinkedIn and set up some video chats from there.
Most of us are in isolation so these chats are welcomed!
You can also engage with others viewing the webinar through the event hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram!
We are working hard to provide our amazing network with the same quality discussions, connections and experience sharing they have come to expect from Luxatia International events.
We are encouraged that these webinars will help us stay connected within our communities and stay up to date on changes within our industries. Although the coronavirus outbreak has been severe and very concerning, we are determined not to let it hinder the valuable progress technology can have on our world.
Thank you all for understanding and your continued support. We will all get through this together. We look forward to connecting with you online until we can meet up again. We eagerly await the summits later in the year when we can interact face-to-face again.
We wish you and your loved ones the best during these trying times!
