WHO’S CHOSEN PERFORMEDIA
What people are saying about Performedia
Performedia did a tremendous job for us.
If you are considering doing a virtual meeting, particularly for the first time, Performedia did a tremendous job for us. Made it fit exactly what we needed. They can customize it, and I liked the fact they customized for us, particularly with the trivia competition, which was highly popular.
A very good user experience for our membership.
This was the first time we've had to do a virtual meeting, and we asked you guys to educate us as we put it together, and you did a nice job of that. The other thing that happened was that during the course of the actual meeting, even when there were technical issues or changes that had to be made, you responded immediately and took care of them. The result was a very good user experience for our membership, and we've gotten very good compliments from them about that, and they've asked us to look at some of the online elements, and incorporating them into future meetings.
Every bit of feedback we have received has been positive.
Our attendees and our staff are hardwired to produce in-person events at the same venue. We have been doing it for 40 years. When we had to plan our first-ever entirely virtual event, there was a lot of anxiety about what that could look like. And what that might be like after the event, because we are also very hardwired to get both positive and negative feedback from attendees. We were incredibly surprised that after our very first-ever entirely virtual convention, that every bit of feedback we have received has been positive. We had positive feedback about, of course, the speakers themselves, but about the ease of using the platform, about engagement with other attendees. Of course it's just like in person, people walk off to the bar and have a drink together, they go have lunch in the restaurant. You don't know that networking's happening, but we had one of our CEOs respond and tell us that they were so happy they could see who was attending, and that they could intentionally connect with individuals. And they did that. And so we were very pleasantly surprised with the appearance of our virtual convention, the logistics of the convention, and also the networking that folks were able to do as a result of it.
No matter what I throw them in terms of curveballs, they're always there, willing and eager to help.
In my 20 plus years of working as an event planner, I have found that there are certain vendors that are your go to tried and true partners, there are others who are just there to add you to their client list, and I deeply value a partner that is cheerfully helpful all the time that's that's one of my go to phrases is cheerfully helpful and. I have always found working with Peter, working with Matt - the entire team - everyone has always been over and above willing to help, willing to adapt and be flexible, as my needs keep changing and the demands on me for my other staff keep changing. No matter what I throw them in terms of curveballs, they are always there and willing and eager to help, so I've always really appreciated that, and you can see that that's their company culture and they're just cheerfully helpful, and a great partner.
We also have had more sponsors buying bulk sponsorships . . .
We also have had more sponsors buying bulk sponsorships, so, you know, whereas before they would look at one event say, "Oh i'd like to buy this one spot at a summit," they all of a sudden were buying six or seven spots throughout the entire calendar year, just knowing that the experience with the Performedia team and the player that we've been using has been so seamless and easy, and has really resonated with our audience.
Event Capture and Webcasting
Nothing beats attending a conference or event in person – even we admit that! Attending sessions, perusing the tradeshow floor or sharing a funny story as you sip cocktails during the networking events are pretty hard to replicate in the virtual world. HOWEVER, as most meeting planners and conference organizers know, it’s nearly impossible to reach 100% attendance at your physical event. Busy schedules, financial constraints, pesky weather and other factors are bound to weave their way into your attendance numbers. You don’t have much control over that, but what you do have control over, is what you DO with the CONTENT of your event. Do you want to reach those that weren’t able to make it? Do you want to allow your attendees to review sessions they found captivating or ones that they had to miss due to concurrent tracks? Do you want attendees to be able to share session content with their colleagues? If your answer to any of these questions is yes – that’s where we come in.
We recognize the importance not just of good content, but good content production values. Performedia captures sessions in HD-quality footage and captures any form of synchronized screen content (PowerPoints, web or software tours, movies – you name it!). Each portal has 24/7 client access to registration, tracking and viewership metrics on who is watching your content, when and for how long so you can key in on what resonates most with your online audience!
The session content is housed in a custom-branded player which in turn is displayed in a portal outfitted to mimic the look and feel of your company or event website or any other branding you would like – including sponsor branding. Our web design team can meet any specific branding needs you may have!
Content can be captured for on-demand, live or as-live purposes. Take a look at a couple examples here and here

High ROI Sponsor Benefits
As all in the conference industry know, a solid sponsorship base is the lifeblood of any vibrant and successful event. It’s a cutting edge world out there, and sponsors need to feel the love and that they are getting the biggest bang for their buck if they are to keep participating in your event year after year. If ROI benchmarks aren’t met, you can bet your belt buckle they’ll be looking to spend their money elsewhere.
Not to fear, Performedia can help keep that from happening with our handy toolbox of sponsor bennies that you can include in your sponsorship packages. A few “top sellers” are as follow:
Online Booth Demo:
Quick demo, up to 3-5 minutes in length that Performedia captures on-site of sponsor pitching to potential customers. Includes capture, slides and customer-branded player for each demo. Link is included on your event portal and your sponsor gets their own link that that they can use for marketing purposes EXAMPLE
Commercial Inserted at the Beginning of Each Session:
This can be a video your sponsor provides, or something Performedia captures on site (ie: “Hi, I’m Fred with Sponsor X. I hope you enjoy the session you are about to watch. If you ever have any needs in the area of what we do, I hope you will give us a call” – or something like that) and then insert prior to live or on-demand sessions (there can be different ads before different sessions, as desired) EXAMPLE
Banner Ad on the Session Media Player:
Performedia’s players and portals can display one or several banner ads, and can include a rotating banner ad that switches from sponsor to sponsor at a desired time interval. Here is an EXAMPLE of a session player with sponsor ad banner.
These interviews are typically captured around the halls of the conference, or perhaps at a special “studio” Performedia sets up on the show floor. They are a chance for the sponsor to enunciate a vision, talk about new initiatives or products, or discuss the hot topics of the day EXAMPLE
This is typically a session that the sponsor has paid to hold or participate in – it can be strictly informational, or it can be all about the sponsor’s products and/or services EXAMPLE
Give us a call to discuss the best way of parsing these benefits into your sponsor packages!
Event and Message Marketing
Part of what we do at Performedia is to bring our client’s stories to life with a variety of video production offerings ranging from video case studies to marketing messages. Shot in rich High Definition format, customers use these videos to kick off a general session, to wow a board meeting or promote their next event. As always, Performedia provides a turnkey service, from production planning, to interview transcripts, licensed music, professional narration, scripting, editing, and delivery of big screen and little screen versions of the finished content.
Continuing Education and Online Training
Our educational and institutional client base has grown larger than ever before. If your mission is to educate, inform or grant certification to your client base – look no further. In this busy world we live in, getting 100% participation in onsite training courses is becoming less feasible. With our Continuing Education and Online Training portals, your valuable content can be viewed in the comfort of your viewers’ home or office at a time that works for them.
Performedia can capture your lectures or sessions on site, or can use your existing footage and outfit it in for SCORM compliance. Our SCORM-compliant players work with virtually any LMS out there.
