Convene Virtual Meetings: Updates & Releases

Posted September 16, 2020 By Convene

Convene Virtual Meetings was created to help your virtual events thrive. In this ever changing world, we know first hand that you need a platform and partner that can change along with it. That’s why we’re continuously improving our platform to ensure that you have the tools and support needed to meet your targets both now and in the future. 

To help you stay informed about our latest available information and what we’re working on, we’re thrilled to share Convene Virtual Meetings Platform Updates. From cosmetic refinements to new feature releases, this guide will serve as your go-to resource for all of our recent developments. You can think of it as a direct line of communication, straight from our engineering team to you. 

Be sure to check back for more updates, and feel free to connect with our team of Virtual Meeting Producers to test them out.  

Platform Updates 10.09

Our virtual meetings platform was designed to help you achieve your event goals and deliver the peace of mind needed to perform at your best. That’s why we’re thrilled to release the latest enhancements to our breakout room, networking, and sponsorship functionalities. Any users implementing programs after October 7th will have access to these updated features, too!

1:1 Networking Chat

Participants can now chat directly with other attendees in the event. Attendees can also change their accessibility to “unavailable” when they want to focus on the session without disruption. The chat window also now lists all participants by name, title, and company. Plus, this full list is searchable to ensure that attendees can connect with people they are interested in networking with in the future.

Sponsorship Information 

Attendees can now click on a sponsor logo and see more information about each sponsor, or visit a sponsor-selected URL.

Improved Analytics

Clients can now view who watched their event, when they watched it, and even gain insight into how long attendees tuned in for, too.  

If you have any questions about our newest updates, please reach out to our team or join one of our Product Open Houses.
