The Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC) has launched two new web steaming packages to give clients an opportunity to use their events as a platform to reach a larger audience.
ACC was the first Centre in Australia to install new web streaming capabilities in all its major meeting venues and continues to lead the market in web streaming services.
The two packages have been tailored to suit events held in both the larger meeting halls and smaller meeting rooms with prices starting from just $1,000 a day.
- A camera operator (Hall Package) or Fixed Camera (Meeting Room Package)
- 9-hour Web Cast
- 10-hour Web Cast technician
- Data Upload
- IntraCast – Available via the ACC in-house intranet
- WebCast – Available via the internet
- Video on Demand – Available for viewing up to 7 days after the event
- Video content supplied on USB or Hard Drive for ongoing use
Adelaide Convention Centre’s web streaming facility is managed in-house and this means more competitive pricing. The packages also give event organisers an opportunity to explore new revenue streams by charging an access fee or organising sponsorship for the broadcast.
ACC Chief Executive Alec Gilbert said web streaming allowed delegates to participate in sessions from anywhere in the world via remote access, including active participation such as asking questions, voting and completing questionnaires.
“Technology cannot replace the experience of attending an event but it does allow for greater participation and engagement,” said Mr Gilbert.
“It’s particularly useful for clients with stakeholders in remote or regional areas who’re unable to physically attend a conference but are interested in the content
“Recently, we ran web streaming for a client conference which was attended by 350 delegates with a further 54 logging in to view live speaker presentations online.”
However, web streaming isn’t only for people unable to attend a conference but also adds significant value to delegates.
During a conference, delegate time is limited and often there are multiple sessions of interest happening concurrently.
Web streaming means delegates can catch up on missed sessions online whenever they choose – in the hotel, at the conference, or when they return home.
