With the spread of COVID-19 halting business operations for organisations all over the globe, communication has never been more imperative. As more teams start operating remotely, they’re turning to video conferencing and live streaming applications to keep productivity up. But what about the communications gap between companies and external entities, like customers or other organisations?
To combat this communications gap, Purple Patch Group are now offering live streaming conferences and virtual events. With our live stream events, companies can expect the same attention to detail and top-notch event management services that we provide with in-person events. If you’re weighing whether to cancel your upcoming event or conference, consider our live streaming events services first.
Arla Foods UK comprises around 2400 UK dairy farmers (members). The company relies on communicating with its members throughout the year via a series of major events and ‘town hall’ meetings.
With the advent of Coronavirus – the instruction across Europe was to postpone all physical meetings.
Arla’s request to Purple Patch was simple – how can they at a week’s notice communicate remotely with all of their farmers – delivering their update presentation, and more importantly allowing for an interactive dialogue with farmers across the UK.
To hold a large conference or event virtually, you need more capabilities than what Skype or Office 365 Teams can provide.
Using the application Slido, we’re able to achieve the following:
Logistically, the details are simple. What you’ll need:
Purple Patch provides everything else required to host the virtual conference. We include:
An important component of live events is interactivity. With our virtual events services, you won’t have to sacrifice on audience engagement. Nor will you worry about security and accessibility.
With the Slido app, we can enable delegates to comment, ask questions, or even vote during the live stream
Accessing the virtual conference or meeting with our solution is easy as well. Delegates don’t need to download or install any software, they only need a decent WiFi or 4G internet connection. If they can stream YouTube videos over their connection, then they can view your virtual event through the Slido app
To secure your event, we can create a password-protected log-in page. We’ll generate a unique set of credentials for each participant and quickly send them out
With our live stream events, you have the option to hold multiple sessions. Your delegates can join whichever session is most convenient for them. For those who don’t have the option to live stream your broadcast, we can also set up a secure conference call number. Finally, once your virtual event has concluded, we’ll deliver a fully produced and edited version of the broadcast that you can send out afterward.

“A BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for the hard work put in to make yesterday’s event a success, it when really smoothly and the execs and delegates feedback that it was excellent.”
“Huge thanks to you and your team for a FANTASTIC series of events this week, topped off (!) nicely, with today’s extravaganza. It was certainly a challenging environment for you all but you delivered it, as always, seamlessly with your usual professional, unflappable style.
