Webcast services and database solutions – flexible and forward-thinking – since 1998

With our 24 years of experience in webcasting and in digital transformation of conferences we are your reliable and solution-oriented partner in Europe and worldwide. Your challenge is our mission!

With the UN Climate Change Conference 1999 we produced this major international event for the first time as Hybrid Meeting. Our live and on-demand webcast became from the very beginning an essential service for the delegates on site as well as for remote participants worldwide. From 2004 onwards our focus went more and more on medical association meetings.

As established experts we are a driving force in the further development of hybrid congress formats as well as digital and, above all, sustainable knowledge platforms. We have created solutions using interactive livestreams and instant on-demand recordings in large international projects. Via our own “Digital Congress Resources” platform, we make the congress content (webcasts, slides, posters, abstracts, …) directly available digitally, both to participants on site and for all online users worldwide. This generates real added value for the event itself as well as for long-term content usage.

In addition, content from a wide variety of sources, such as webinars, completes the overall package.The focus of the continuous further development of our platform is the consolidation of a sustainable knowledge offer, participation in events (digital as well as on-site) and further community building.

This creates a valuable treasure box of knowledge that is easily accessible and grows continuously.
