The Challenge: Bringing a Community of Security Professionals Together in a Virtual Environment
In the past, IB Consultancy has hosted in-person events in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and South America. These special events bring together first responders, police officers, military troops, firefighters, and other professionals who work in the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) Defense field. Unfortunately, the pandemic brought these events to a halt; and IB Consultancy needed to find an alternative solution to in-person events quickly, in order to keep the CBRNe and EOD community connected during these unprecedented times. Understanding the need for reshaping their strategy, the team learned of the opportunities presented through the possibility of a digital experience.
IB Consultancy began seeking a virtual event platform partner to help them shift their strategy in order to continue to respond to the needs of their community. They needed a virtual events partner to provide them with a safe and secure platform where CBRNE industry experts could exchange important information and knowledge that they would typically cover at an in-person event.
