Streampoint Solutions, eventPower and Competitive Edge Launch New Virtual Platforms

June 1, 2020

Event technology companies are responding to increased demand for virtual tools with new software offerings designed to help event planners make the shift from in-person to digital meetings. Here are three of the newest offerings: 


Event management technology platform Streampoint Solutions launched StreampointLIVE, a customizable virtual events platform tailored to the registration process that incorporates integrations with CRM and AMS solutions.

“While the country endures the COVID-19 shutdown, we want to provide events and meetings with access to a virtual platform that is also customizable,” said Dharmesh Dayabhai, co-founder of Streampoint Solutions. “Robust, bespoke and easily accessible, [this platform allows] people everywhere [to save] tons of time navigating their virtual events.”

The platform includes advanced breakout sessions, requires no plugins and enables attendees to view webinars and town halls of any size, including plenaries, lectures and town halls with audiences greater than 10,000. Other features include the ability to track how long a user has viewed a video, real-time analytics in the back office, live chats and Q&As, live HD broadcasting, as well as Streampoint’s CE certification solution tied to the user data.

According to Dayabhai, everything on StreampointLIVE is secure, with event participants only able to view and sign up for webinars and sessions that are applicable to their registration. The company plans to launch additional features in the coming months to further enhance the platform. 

EventPower Virtual Event Platform

Conference management services and software provider eventPower has launched a new Virtual Event Platform that automatically integrates with video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Vimeo.  

With this all-in-one software platform, each component of an event — including registration, website, online agenda, attendee portals, speaker portals, sponsor portals, exhibitors and the virtual platform — are able to speak to one another. This allows for streamlining real-time updates from a singular interface without the need for APIs, importing or exporting data. 

eventPower’s Virtual Event experience allows attendees to virtually access peer-to-peer networking for attendees, exhibitors and speakers; a Virtual Exhibit Hall with the ability to browse exhibitor information including videos, documents and marketing materials; sponsor opportunities that can be featured throughout the platform via banner ads, graphic placement and/or advertising pop-ups; and a video conferencing tool that automatically displays streamed live sessions, breakout sessions and past recordings. 

Competitive Edge Virtual Exhibit Training

Exhibitor training provider Competitive Edge launched a Virtual Exhibit Training program on May 21 designed to help show organizers bring exhibitors up to speed on why and how to execute a virtual exhibit that will achieve strong ROI.

The training program also teaches exhibitors how to create a virtual exhibit booth that attracts the right attendees; leverages online media to stimulate strong engagement; delivers relevant and important content; and captures qualified sales leads, regardless of the virtual platform being used, according to Jefferson Davis, president of the Charlotte-based exhibitor education, training and consulting firm.

Additionally, it includes an on-demand educational webinar with a downloadable workbook, checklist and Q&A access to expert presenters. Show organizers receive a communications plan to build exhibitor awareness and drive engagement, as well as a series of informative articles that can be posted in exhibitor bulletins and on trade show websites. 

“Because this is a new Wild West frontier, caution must be taken [by event organizers] to ensure participating exhibitors get real value,” Davis said. “Otherwise, the negative impact on the [exhibito] relationship could dramatically impact participation and spending on future shows.”

To help support the events industry right now, Competitive Edge is donating 10 percent of its revenue from the training program to the PCMA Industry Relief Fund.
