Overcoming the challenges

2020 has thrown up many challenges across all industries – not least, the charity sector. With in-person events off the table for the foreseeable future, Linney recently helped Youth Sport Trust transform its annual Learning Academy event to an online forum.

New digital worlds

Using Linney’s experience in the virtual world, combined with our event production team’s technical know-how, we were able to help our client deliver keynote presentations, concurrent workshops, networking and personalised event schedules for all 150 delegates.

Virtual event success

Our virtual events team provided creative and technical guidance in focused pre-production sessions with our client. We also designed and managed a dedicated registration space. The event itself featured four live keynote presentations, 35 breakout workshop sessions, virtual ‘speed dating’ and networking rooms.

The verdict

YST’s first virtual event was a huge success, with high levels of engagement throughout and lots of positive requests by delegates to use the event platform again.

“Linney's event platform really lifted the content and put it in a different league to other events we've organised.”
