Bringing together veterinary professionals when real events go on hold.
Video / Virtual Events / Presentations
Annually, the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) hold a number of live ceremonial events to celebrate the achievements of the veterinary profession. Covid-19 meant these could not happen, so the RCVS turned to us to help put together virtual events instead.
The RCVS wanted to create engaging events which didn’t turn into, what felt like, another video call for the viewer.
They wanted to keep the sense of occasion and importance for attendees, winners and speakers, despite being in their own home.
A series of bespoke animations and videos were created to support the speakers and award winners. Each of the stylised hand-drawn animations were voiced and accompanied the presentation of awards to category winners, as well as acting as a backdrop to the presenters and their introductions.
Working closely with the RCVS, we fully managed the events and the broadcasting, including the live streams, event production and speaker liaison.
The streams of the events hosted to date have had over 700 live views, 3,800 views and more than 10,000 impressions in the 30 days following them. This far exceeds the 500 who would have attended the face-to-face events in normal circumstances.
“Just wanted to drop you all a quick email to say thanks so much for all the huge amount of work you’ve put in to our awards ceremony this evening. It looked and sounded fantastic, ran extremely smoothly, had lots of engagement from the online audience (think we nearly reached 400!) and had a real wow factor to the whole evening. Our twitter feed is still buzzing!"
“ I know you’ve all been putting in a real shift to get the work done, and to such a high standard, so I hope you’re equally pleased with how it all came together, we’ve been getting some lovely feedback already.”
Ian Holloway, Director of Communications, RCVS
