About Lockdown Summit 2020

The purpose of the event was to bring all the stakeholders of event experiential industry together and showcase what changes are happening across the board during lockdown be it work, engagement, virtual, experiential events and other stuff.

[Jump to the Solution]

With the uncertainty within the events industry about the event strategies and the future of experiential marketing, the Tessarekt team wanted to assemble every influential and experienced event professionals to share their experiences and ideas on the same.

The idea came around a time when the entire nation was observing a precautionary lockdown because of the global pandemic. This restricted team Tesserakt conducting any sorted to a physical conference.

Go live in 4 days !!!

[Jump to the Solution]
Tessarakt team conceptualized the idea of having a summit virtually during the lockdown and announced the “Lockdown Summit 2020”.

However, while exploring the market with all available video conferencing and webinar platforms they realized that these tools while great for video communications they fell short of taking over the experience of physical to virtual. This was important for Tessarakt since they as an organization is focused on delivering an experience, not just host communication.

With the last 5 days remaining for the date announced, they were yet to finalize a platform for their summit that not only could deliver the experience of a physical event online but also become easy to manage.

Organizing multiple sessions with multiple speakers

[Jump to the Solution]
The Lockdown Summit 2020 was originally planned to host 8-9 different sessions one after the other with a show anchored by a professional just like any physical summit but with speakers delivering their sessions sitting home. At the same time, they wanted to ensure that the attendees could network, participate in Q&As and also get to view sessions agenda and their chronology with the ability to register separately for each session.

Engage 300+ attendees virtually

[Jump to the Solution]
Tessarkt conceptualized events often see a large influx of participating audience, for the Lockdown summit the organizing team was anticipating anywhere between 200-250 attendees.

With the summit being held physically, they would have had enough tools to design the engagement experience but with the summit being conceptualized online the major challenge organizers had was to plan the audience engagement.


Virtual Conference held on a Virtual Event platform


A virtual event platform with the ability to host parallel speaker sessions, Agenda-wise session tracks, one-to-one chats, networking set-up, integration with Zoom for video communications and Eventbrite integrations to import registration details. The feature-rich virtual portal was an apt alternative to the actual physical event.
