Upon entering The Way to Do Virtual airport environment, you’ll find that you’ve been given your own personal passport in which you can complete activities in each individual room to obtain a passport stamp. Simply click on the button that says “Earn Your Passport Stamp” to begin. Each room will keep an up-to-date status on how close you are to completing the tasks and obtaining your stamp. From watching videos to browsing through a brochure, the more activities you complete, the more stamps you earn in your passport. Once you’ve completed the tasks and activities from each room, you will have successfully filled up your passport! When creating any virtual environment, you can add different ways to increase engagement and take your audience on an adventure.


3. The Greenhouse

The events industry understands how important virtual events are for the environment, as sustainability benefits have been spoken about greatly. At 6Connex, we took a different approach to sustainability by not only just talking about the benefits, but by quantifying the impact through research and data. By partnering with a well-known organization, WSP, we’ve been able to identify and quantify the benefits of certain sustainability efforts that come from virtual events. WSP has helped gather real data in regards to CO2 emission savings from seven events we hosted, providing us with context to be able to support our sustainability mission and efforts towards the program. You can learn more about our mission and the 6Connex commitment to sustainability in our Greenhouse. You can also dive deeper into the quantitative data around sustainability, shown in our interactive sustainability report flipbook. If you have a mission or a strong stance on a subject, you can create rooms to showcase the importance of it to you and your company.


4. AI Matchmaking, Meeting Scheduling, and MyAgenda

Your virtual experience just became more personalized. With AI Matchmaking, you can maximize your interactions with other attendees just like you, based on your common similarities. Your matches are based on profile data from registration, as well as activity data. You also have the ability to chat and email from the matchmaking interface. The Way to Do Virtual gets even more personalized with Meeting Scheduling and MyAgenda, where you can add courses, webinars, one-on-ones, meetings, and more to your personal schedule. These functionalities allow you the option to plan your day in advance; thus, maximizing your interaction and use of time in the virtual conference environment. 


5. The Gift Shop

No gift shop is complete without a souvenir section - so don’t forget to pick up some free souvenirs to take home. There’s no limit to what you can add to your very own gift shop.
