One differentiator among many PheedLoop has traditionally had in its offering for events is the ability to implement interactive floor plans allowing for embeddable widgets, live booth selection, navigation, and more. Particularly useful for trade shows.
We’ve always touted how self-serve the PheedLoop platform is, but one aspect of it that certainly wasn’t was the design and implementation of interactive floor plans. It required event planners to send us their floor plans, and our designers re-rendering them in an interactive format. It often required a lot of back and forth, updates, and manual iteration, and although we realize that’s the status quo in our industry, it didn’t align well with our approach to letting event planners take maximum control of their events.
Well, that’s now all a thing of the past. Our new floor plan builder is now live, and it is a tool that allows you to create interactive floor plans all on your own!
Attendee Matchmaking is a new feature that allows you to curate an experience specific to your event that helps attendees with common interests find each other! It's free to use for events that already have the Advanced (previously known as Group) networking upgrade.
Matchmaking in PheedLoop is designed to work in a way that you define, based completely on the things you believe are important to your attendees. It all starts with you using PheedLoop’s built-in form builder system to create a fully customizable matchmaking survey consisting of multiple-choice and single-choice questions, along with conditional question logic.
Once you do so, attendees visiting the networking section of your event will be prompted to respond to your matchmaking survey. With the help of a little bit of algorithmic magic, we determine a match score for each pairing that results from the combined responses of all the attendees at your event, and give each attendee a real-time list of their top 50 matches!
Autopilot Mode for session live streams allows for the automatic toggling on and off of your session’s famous “Enable Stream” button. This is particularly useful for events with hundreds of sessions, many concurrent tracks, or small teams with limited manpower.
Autopilot Mode is streaming technology agnostic, meaning any streaming option you choose in PheedLoop will be compatible. Within seconds of the start and end time you specify for your session, PheedLoop will automatically toggle the stream on or off and it will be perfectly synchronized for all attendees and will work across all timezones.
To turn this feature on for a session, go to a session's virtual settings and check "Enable Autopilot Stream Mode". If you need to do this for multiple sessions, use the bulk editing tool.
A new setting is now available that allows you to shuffle the order in which your exhibitors and sponsors are displayed in attendee-facing experiences (e.g. event website, on-site mobile app, virtual portal, etc.).
The primary reason you'd want to enable this is it allows a specific organization to not be consistently at the top of a list and get the most traffic.
To activate this for exhibitors, visit Exhibitors > Settings > Shuffle Exhibitor Ordering. To activate this for sponsors, visit Sponsors > Settings> Shuffle Sponsor Ordering.
We are officially announcing the new photo booth feature! It’s free to use, can be customized with your own backgrounds, shows up in the event feed, and it just works great!
All you need to do to activate and use it is visit your event’s virtual (not on-site) settings, and enable it. Set a custom background via the virtual design settings, and you’re ready to go to try out the photo booth in the virtual event lobby. You can always delete (or hide) posts via the Networking > Event Feed tab along with all the posts contributed by your on-site attendees via the on-site PheedLoop portals.
By the way - thank you to everyone who contributes reactions and feedback to these product updates. We see all of them, and factor in everything you say into our continuous product development.
New “Event Admin” tags have been added to the context-aware chat areas (e.g. lobby, sessions, exhibits, groups) whenever an organization team member account posts (this is coupled with the update allowing portal multiple admins). New “Speaker” and “Exhibitor” tags have been added for each of their respective sessions and exhibit booths to their chat messages in their public chat areas to better highlight when a context-specific admin is posting (e.g. exhibit manager or speaker).
