About Project
Regional Conferences

The MSSC was formed in 2004 and is the parent charity for the Sea Cadets and Marine Society. The charity is made up of these two very old charities, which merged in 2004. Both helped young people to achieve more and make a life for themselves, often in very difficult times.

MSCC hold their annual Volunteer Conferences at regional locations around the UK. Due to Covid restrictions they were unable to do this and turned to Stream7 to enable the events to take place online.

The event consisted of 9 sessions taking place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. These events were designed so that each region would have a day dedicated to them.

Solution
77 Sessions

This event called for a comprehensive online event management platform with facilities to host registration, live video, interactivity along with breakout sessions.

After researching many platforms we decided that Canapii would be a great fit. 

Working with Canapii and the client we created over 77 sessions including  ‘main stage’ sessions where the plenary presentations took place,  and also breakout rooms where MSSC staff presented on various topics.

For the main stage, our remote caller technology allowed us to bring in presenters wherever  their location to contribute , whilst our producers used talk back technology to communicate in the ear of  the live hosts to ensure the event ran smoothly.

Stream7 provided live technical support to the delegates and presenters throughout the event.

Outcome
800 Delegates

By streaming our TV quality broadcast into Canapii we were able to provide high quality production into an easy to navigate and fully branded platform. Stream7 provided training for the breakout sessions hosts to enable them to successfully host self managed presentations complete with screen share and interactive elements.

All content from the events was supplied for on-demand viewing post event, further increasing the event reach. 

Over 800 delegates attended the series of events with some great feedback from presenters and attendees alike.

Stream7 have been very professional with organising all our 9 events and breakout sessions. The producers managed to guide and bring online even the technophobes. The team was very helpful and always trying to find solutions and accommodate our events’ needs. I highly recommend them.
