Using our proprietary media wall system, we designed a custom layout for the Update Deutschland hackathon. Each tile on our media wall was interactive and hosted a multitude of content including YouTube, live streams, Zoom, Instagram & Twitter feeds, agendas, Typeform, CTAs, sponsored links, and social backlinks.
URL hosting & GDPR
To ensure fail-proof event page performance, we ran the virtual event via our infrastructure which is tried and tested to handle millions of simultaneous requests via the unique URL chosen by the Update Deutschland team. Using sandboxing by design, we were able to relay all traffic in a tightly controlled environment to ensure a greater level of privacy and protection for attendees and organizers alike.
To provide a focused event experience for hearing-impaired individuals, a CTA was integrated on the main page that led to a unique media wall with text and slogans as well as a unique live stream dedicated to the hearing-impaired via sign language.
Engagement & interaction
We placed various CTAs and backlinks behind the tiles of the media wall so that key information like FAQs or list of challenges was just a click away.
We integrated Typeform and an interactive agenda to allow participants to engage, sign up, or view a detailed schedule while watching the live stream without leaving the event forum.
