The challenges of this international conference, which brought together psychiatry and psychology professionals, with distinguished international speakers, were closely related to the Conference Centre’s objectives.
Our building is firmly committed to reinforcing its competitiveness through a number of tools to optimise the efficiency of the human team and its ability to work as an INTEGRATED PART of the project of the event organising company, while remaining a benchmark building in terms of technological equipment.
And indeed, relations with the team and the technological needs were the main challenges we faced in relation to this event.
This event has been held many times at different places, and it is always organised by the same human team, which has been working every day for years on the coordination of the event. Our group of professionals had to integrate with that team and work as one more cog in an already well-oiled machine.
We also faced the challenge, in addition to 800 people attending the event in person, of 850 connecting via a live stream (most of them attendees, but also numerous people who connected remotely). One of the unique features of the conference was that the interpreters were working from their countries and cities of origin, not in the building itself. In that case, the normal solution would have been to use the streaming platform (OnAir) and its tool for mobile devices as the translation-receiving device. However, the client wanted to receive audio from the platform and its insertion into our digital conference equipment. That way, the digital translation receivers of the Conference Centre were used instead of the attendees’ mobile phones.
