Congress social media content strategy creates in-person atmosphere during virtual event

Although the 2020 virtual event was successful, like other committees, the client felt that it was challenging to create the same level of social media engagement as previous in-person events. With the adapted virtual format attendees do not necessarily check their social media accounts since they are streaming content live across their devices. Bearing this mind, a strategy was implemented to focus on a real-time engagement approach to make virtual attendees experience a similar atmosphere to in-person events.

Kabloom helped reach 1+ million unique hashtag impressions during the live days, and 3 million Facebook impressions for an event of 2,000 participants.

These efforts not only showed a 45% increase in unique user engagements, but also doubled unique hashtag participants compared to the previous 2020 virtual edition.
