The European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO) turned to OFCORES for support in organising their 2021 Annual Conference virtually. With an in-studio moderator, dynamic stage set design, 13 remote live speaker integrations and captivating video productions, the event was successfully broadcasted live for 800 registrants from De Filatuur, an OFCORES partner virtual event studio.

EARTO Annual Conference Virtual Event


As an organisation representing 350 European RTOs, EARTO enlisted the help of OFCORES to conceptualise a virtual conference focused on “Ensuring Europe’s Sustainable Recovery through Technology”, and bringing together representatives from EU institutions, RTOs and industry.

As part of our premium virtual event solutions, we provided digital session format guidance, video content and design integration coordination, on-camera training for the moderator, an apt set design and speaker and supplier rehearsals, as well as ensured our event studio supplied optimal internet capacity and top livestream, AV and technical provider expertise.

Additionally, OFCORES delivered communications expertise, including a social media event promotion campaign, live social media posts during the event and technical guides for speakers.
