The pandemic pushed the entire ecosystem of organizations to modulate their way of organizing events. This was when Dreamcast launched India’s first virtual event platform, post-pandemic. The objective was to provide event organizers, agencies, and users with an immersive, interactive, and engaging virtual environment to host all scales and sizes of events digitally.
Due to countless restrictions, organizing many significant events became impossible. This further led to the lack of connection-building and collaboration opportunities. To combat this challenge, Dreamcast aimed to create a platform that could replicate & ensure an event experience as close as the on-ground format over a virtual venue.
Another challenge was to reach out to the audience and share with them the efficacy of the virtual event platform. However, once this objective was achieved, virtual events turned out to be more advantageous for organizers & agencies than ever.
With this transition, the importance of data security & safety increased. Dreamcast intended to build a platform that is 100% safe for its customers. Various other objectives included:
- Multi Format Interaction
- Real-Time Communication
- Third-Party Integrations
- Multilingual Capabilities
- Audience Engagement
- Seamless Networking
- Large-Scale Participation
- Feedback Collection
- Data Analytics & Reports
