BY London Filmed

January 27th, 2021

Overview:

Event Type: Virtual

Virtual Event Platform: Remo

Workflow: Zoom > Vimeo > Remo

Event Date: 27/01/21

Event Duration: 4 hours split across two days

Company: Tech Nation

Speakers: 12 speakers including CEO Gerard Grech and ex-alumni from Monzo, Unruly Group & LoveCrafts.

Attendees: 50+ Founders / Co-Founders from this year’s Upscale program

In January 2021, Tech Nation launched their 6th Annual Upscale programme; a 6-month initiative set up to help scale up and accelerate the growth of over 30 UK businesses. Over the course of the 6-month scheme, 33 founders and senior leadership teams will explore fundamental growth challenges, as well as receiving over 60 hours of support from expert scale coaches. Tech Nation approached us to help with their virtual event, in which they would be announcing the 33 high-growth scaleups joining Upscale 6.0.

Challenges:

  • Produce a virtual event across 2-days and keep 50+ Founders / Co-Founder’s engaged
  • Overcoming tech issues leading up to the event that were outside of our control

Our solutions:

  • A well-curated event including a fireside chat between Tom Blomfield, founder of Monzo, and Sarah Wood, co-founder of Unruly as well as others, sharing insights of what companies must go through to scale exponentially.
  • We encountered difficulties with the integration between Youtube & Remo leading up to the event. We solved the issue by working closely with the Remo support team and putting contingencies in place such as having a backup live stream to hand. In this instance, we used Vimeo as our backup stream which we had also tested leading up to the event.

The result:

Another successful virtual event with Tech Nation and the 1st time Upscale has been delivered to a virtual audience.

Client feedback

“Incredible work and amazing team!
The team at London Filmed were a joy to work with on one of our first team projects together. They communicated with us often giving us updates and feedback, and the team was really helpful on the event day going above and beyond to make sure everything was of the highest standard. The production value of our event was the best it had ever been, it all looked really slick and we got some incredible feedback from our attendees! I am looking forward to working with London Filmed again on future projects!”
