      25
    • High-Impact Successful Event
      The Engagement Model
      26
      26
    • Service Model: Full-service
      Full Service: In principle, CGS provides a turnkey solution:
      Event Manager
      Environment Setup and branding
      Microsite, registration and emailing setup
      Training
      Help-desk support
      Live day support
      Recording and production of all sessions, if any
    • Service Model: Self-Service
      Self-service: In principle, client assumes the management of multiple tasks through a set of training and self-management tools.
      CGS’s responsibilities are as follows:
      Activate account as per contract scope
      Initiation client training
      Technical support
      Provide reports
      Live day call center support
      Live streaming for live sessions (if applicable)
      Post event summary meeting
      Client’s Main Responsibilities: (some or all of these services can be bought from CGS on A-La-Carte basis)
      Promotion (always client’s responsibility)
      Set up registration and emailing
      Set up and customize environment
      Initiate and train sponsors
      Generate reports and distribute to sponsors
      Record sessions, if any.
    • Contractual Model: Single Event Vs. Annual License
      Client can choose between two options:
      Engage and buy one single event: In a single event scenario, although available, it does not make too much sense. The initiation and training cost needed to prepare and train a client to manage the event will eat a lot of the cost savings.
      Purchase an annual license: An annual license can allow you to host multiple events per year. There is an upfront cost to setup the environment, annual maintenance and support. Each live event has an associated cost of the variables as well as the needed support. An annual license can be and should be bundled with self-service model.
    • Next Steps…
      • Scoping assistance: ask for an “Event Scoping Datasheet”
      • CGS will review your objectives and work with you to design the best and most cost effective event.
      • Proposal – Includes all deliverables, timeline, associatedcost and payment schedule.

    • Localization
      Description
      The CGS VirtualEvents365 platform supports multiple languages to meet the growing demand for multilingual events.
      The VirtualEvents365 platform breaks the language barrier by providing event organizers with the ability to localize event-content for your international customers. Important components, from event materials to surveys can be localized for your target audiences.
      Initially, users of the platform will be able to set their language preference during the registration process. Users will have the ability to switch languages during the event by the click of a button. Language preferences are kept in a user’s profile and retrieved during login to provide a consistent localized experience.
      Event organizers will also have the ability to give a personal touch to the application by localizing navigational and feature buttons with language that compliments your company’s working culture.
      System Features
      • A user’s language preference is initially captured during registration. Our
      registration page will recognize the language setting of the user’s browser
      and provide registration information in the appropriate language. The
      user will also have the option of selecting a different language for the
      event with a language-preference question in the registration process.
      • Attendees can update their language preference during the event by the
      click of a button. A Language Preference drop-down box will be
      available at the top-right corner of application header. This means that
      the user can switch the language displayed onscreen on-the-fly
      regardless of their virtual location in the event.

    • Instant “Breakout” & “Collaboration” Rooms
      Description
      The CGS VirtualEvents365 platform has the ability to create instant breakout rooms. The breakout rooms are private chat rooms. These rooms can be expanded into fully loaded collaboration rooms. Collaboration rooms have everything required to conduct a true interactive session in real-time: voice chat, web cam technology, whiteboards and file sharing available for use.
      Event organizers will be able to assign licenses for instant collaboration rooms to specific areas such as booths or as a session under the collaboration venue. They can also assign licenses to individuals of these areas or allow attendees to self schedule within the virtual event.
      Attendees will have the ability to search for people with common interests and invite them to a media-rich virtual breakout room for further discussions.
      System Features
      Event organizers can assign licenses for instant collaboration sessions to the following areas:
      • Booths
      • Presentations
      • Schedule Chats
      • Collaboration Venue
      • Conference Attendees
      Licenses can also be assigned directly to individuals within these areas
      For conference workers, the breakout sessions are triggered by the click of a button in their Control Center. The conference worker will select individuals and click on the Collaboration button to spawn an instant break-out session. Invited participants will join the session by clicking on a link inside their chat window.
      When a collaboration license is assigned directly to a conference attendee, their chat window will contain an additional button to trigger a breakout room instantly. Participants in the chat room can join the session by clicking on a link inside their chat window to enter a media-rich break-out room.
      Licenses can also be shared amongst conference attendees. When licenses are allocated in this fashion, conference attendees will have the ability to access a scheduling page to book an available breakout room and invite other attendees to the session. For these types of assignments, collaboration sessions will be added to the participant’s My Schedule page.
      Benefits
      • Create private group meetings
      • Conduct scheduled or on-the-fly interactive training
      sessions
      • Sponsor value: the ability to assign a collaboration room to a booth

    • Privileged based Location and Content
      Description
      The CGS VirtualEvents365 platform can restrict and protect virtual locations, activities and materials within the event. This functionality is used to control access to restricted activities and confidential documents. It can also be used to direct specific content to the appropriate stakeholders.
      Administrators can control access to these restricted locations by adding users to the appropriate role-based security group with access privileges.
      From the attendee perspective, the system will only display areas, activities and resources that are available to them. The exceptions to this rule are components that require a password or payment for access (these components are to remain visible).
      System Features
      Administrators can flag locations, activities and materials for restriction within a virtual event.
      Access privileges (or restrictions) can be based on one or more of the following restriction types:
      • Email Domain
      • Password/ Promotion Code
      • IP Address
      • GeoIP Address
      • Role-based Security Groups
      • Registration Questions/ Answers
      • eCommerce
      • Time-based Access
      Administrators will have the ability to apply multiple restrictions to the same object to meet the client’s security requirements.
      Event locations, activities and materials can be grouped and combined into security packages. The creation of a security package will expedite the setup process as restrictions need only to apply to the package name.
      Directed Content and Traffic Control
      Restriction types, such at time-based access, can be used to direct the flow of traffic to targeted areas or activities within the virtual environment. For example, A popular collaboration venue can be made available for a specific group of individuals in a set timeframe. The same collaboration venue can be made available to all other groups and individuals at a later time.
      Benefits
      • Set up a single event or community environment while providing
      needed firewall between different targeted groups
      • Targeted content; allow different groups to see only content that
      matches their interest
      • Host a single environment for different purposes: example: a college
      platform that functions as “open house admission platform”, recruiting
      and virtual job fairs and the ability to make only relevant venues and
      content to each group.

      • Clients can link an eLab activity to courses, eLab venues and specific attendees.
      • VirtualEvents365 attendees can reserve an available timeslot for an eLab activity. eLab reservations will be available in 15 minute increments. VirtualEvents365 attendees will also have the ability to modify or cancel an eLab reservation.
