"We investigated several meeting platforms before we decided to go with ExpoPlatform - we actually investigated about five or six platforms."

~ Takaya Mera, Business Development Manager at MCI Group

Rebuild, recover and reconnect virtually

The organisers envisioned Japan Luxury Showcase 2021 as a virtual event to build a safe and interactive environment for their industry partners. This required a robust platform to support the event programme online, connect buyers with local and global suppliers and reflect the vision of the event.

The ExpoPlatform website builder offered templates with drag and drop functions to sketch a powerful event website. This module enabled them to construct an interactive space and customise it to display their brand. Exhibitor and product profiles were created to represent participating sellers and drive revenue for them.

Our support team ensured a smooth onboarding and learning experience for the organisers. The event platform was set up swiftly to give them ample time to test and play different functionalities including seller directories, matchmaking settings and meeting scheduler.

Facilitate networking with online meetings

One of the key goals for the organisers was to hold conducive meetings between vendors and buyers. They had previously struggled to track meeting statuses in real-time due to a lack of interconnectivity between multiple meeting tools and insights from data. To monitor the progress, their team had to personally visit active online meetings.

Our real-time meeting dashboard provided a bird's-eye view of all meeting statuses in one place. It displayed instantaneous information from the ongoing meetings and assisted the organising team in tracking no-shows and contacting them quickly.

Email reminders and push notifications were also set up to remind all the participants 10 minutes before the meetings.

"The main reason we thought that ExpoPlatform is the most suitable platform for this event is the function of the real-time meeting dashboard."

~ Takaya Mera, Business Development Manager at MCI Group

"It's really important for us to know if the meeting is really ongoing or not, so the main area meeting dashboard is exactly what we were looking for."

~ Takaya Mera, Business Development Manager at MCI Group

 

Deliver recommendations with Matchmaking

The Japan Luxury Showcase had 70% of the sellers participating for the first-time. It was pivotal for them to showcase their luxury travel products, services and solutions to relevant buyers.

The AI-powered algorithm of our platform created a perfect blend of recommendations based on attendee preferences and dynamic interactions on the platform. The organisers were able to tweak the matchmaking rules and use conditional logic to capture users’ preferences and personalise their event journey.

Seller networking profiles aided in expanding the reach of their products and services even before the event began. Individual microsites for the listed products were also available to encourage buyer interactions and build new relationships.

The results

The Japan Luxury Showcase gleamed with digital interactions throughout the event, successfully connecting the worldwide luxury travel sector. The platform provided attendees with a high-end bespoke experience that included engaging seminars, material, and networking possibilities.

During the event, over 900 one-on-one meetings were placed between buyers and vendors. This figure was twice the original KPI set by the organisers.
