Predicative Technology

AI-powered Recommendation and Prediction Engine, allows you to select areas of interest upon logging into the World Conference virtual platform. A Recommended Agenda will be populated for each attendee upon login to ensure you don’t miss the sessions most important to you, along with the ability to add any session to your agenda. Additionally, this AI-powered Engine makes it easy for attendees with shared interests to find each other by surfacing the connections most relevant to you to provide many ways to connect.

Networking Lounge

From an attendee directory, Soapbox or Hello World! Videos, to private meetings, Roundtables and Boardrooms- you will be able to connect and engage live in many different ways with your fellow World Conference attendees.

Roundtables/Boardrooms

  • Want to meet face-to-face with a group of fellow attendees? Host a Roundtable!
  • With Roundtables, attendees can create their very own public, small-group video meetings with up to 5 other participants right from within the platform via Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or any other video conferencing platform you use.
  • Want to make a private Roundtable? No problem, you can do that too.
  • Boardrooms are available for up to 30 users total if you’d like to expand your group.
  • IABC has planned some dedicated time for Roundtables and Boardrooms on the schedule, but we encourage all attendees to create and schedule these as you progress through the virtual conference.

Gamification

A little friendly competition never hurt! Earn points and badges based how you interact within the event and other attendees, exhibitors and sponsors. A leaderboard will show who’s leading the charge!
