***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** We used Remo (remo.co) to host the Network Innovation Summit in May with 250 people for 9 hours. It had tables people sit at and can move around in, along with lounges to hang out in.  Easily managed speakers and breakouts. We also used their whiteboard feature in a design sprint. 

The chat was super interactive. The platform is really fun. 

Downside is we couldn't do large breakouts (anything over 6 people).

Putting it on took meticulous planning... minute specific agenda, agile enough to accommodate changes on the fly. Lots of work, but our execution was flawless.  

Happy to talk more.

The Online Town is one such software.  You can even hold keynotes in it.
People wander around and can here and join conversations as they move from table to table.  There is no way to share screens though so it doesn't seem to support virtual poster sessions.

Hello Socnetters,

 

As we are approaching the Virtual Sunbelt 2020, we would like to reach out to you with a very specific questions. Some of you have probably already participated in virtual conferences in the last couple of months. Do you have positive experience with tools that support networking and social interaction (and that are not too complicated)? Imagine a coffee break or a hospitality suite situation, how can we create similar conversation opportunities (planned and random)? We know that nothing can replace a real-world face-to-face meeting, but let’s try. :)

 

With many thanks and best wishes,

The organizing committee
