Project

The Belgian Association of Marketing (BAM) partnered with OFCORES for the 6th year in a row to organise its 39th edition of the BAM Marketing Congress. Overcoming the pandemic challenges of 2020, we transformed the annual 2-day physical Congress into its first online edition, with content released over the course of an entire week!

OFCORES helped BAM conceptualise an impactful and engaging virtual event with the following special features:

  • A whole week of marketing content, which participants could not only follow live, but also access on-demand for 3 months following the Congress.
  • Meaningful networking opportunities through an innovative 3D Marketing Village, as well as the event platform’s virtual 1:1 meeting scheduling tool.
  • An agenda tailored to each participant. Attendees could access the event platform ahead of and during the event to create their own programmes comprised of the specific sessions and 1:1 meetings of greatest interest to them.
  • Sponsorship opportunities and visibility.  Some sponsors had pop-up ads in the platform, some mailed goodies to participants ahead of sessions, some participated with a Virtual Marketing Village booth, and all were represented via the social media campaign and event platform pages.
