REINVENT YOUR EVENT

Introducing APBVIP (Virtual In Person)
As Close to an In-Person Event Experience as You Can Get.

As event professionals for more than 60 years, APB knows that it’s the human connections that make an event memorable for attendees and successful for organizers and sponsors. That’s why we partnered with a top tech company to transform a virtual event platform into a virtual event experience. The result: APBVIP, the only solution created by event professionals for event professionals. Request a personal demo of our platform to find out why we’re winning high praise from organizers, attendees and sponsors alike. (And great press, too!)

With APBVIP you can:

  • Reinvent your event. Corporate conferences. Annual association meetings. Fundraisers. A range of college and university programming. APB’s flexible, user-friendly format and powerful capabilities let you expand your program offerings beyond the limitations of in-person events to a new level of engagement and virtual experience.

  • Replicate the full experience of a 1-3 day (or more) live, in-person conference. Ticketing. Registration. Keynote speakers. Exhibitor booths. Sponsorships. Even a live video networking lounge/ballroom with unlimited tables of 2, 4, 10 or 16 people AND private breakout rooms. Tell us what you want to achieve and we’ll find creative ways to make it happen!

  • Create an unforgettable virtual program and agenda. APBVIP lets you replicate the things you miss from in-person events such as photo ops with speakers/celebrities, VIP meet and greets, book signings, product demos and more. Plus, we’ll work with you to attract crowd-drawing speakers including A-list celebrities, business pioneers, industry experts and sports legends. (You don’t have to book speakers to use the platform, but you’ll receive a generous discount if you do!)

  • Keep sponsors and exhibitors happy! Recent studies and articles have shown that sponsors and exhibitors are very disappointed in the new world of virtual events and the level of interaction they have with attendees. By contrast, APBVIP offers an array of interactive opportunities that exhibitors love, including 1:1 video meetings, virtual booths and demo rooms, a branded networking lounge, interactive workshops, access to attendee profiles, targeted networking using algorithmic “matchmaking” and the ability to grab detailed data. From 1,000 banners to showcase their brand to demos, commerce capabilities, and start-to-finish analytics, APBVIP delivers high value for sponsors and more revenue-generating opportunities for you!

  • Offer multiple opportunities for interactive live video networking, Attendees can connect in the networking lounge via 1:1 and group meetings or private breakout rooms. The algorithmic “matchmaking” feature connects attendees with similar interests and/or professional backgrounds—empowering enhanced networking and more meaningful connection.

  • Enjoy advantages that in-person events don't provide, such as gamification and in-depth start-to-finish analytics of attendee feedback and behavior.

  • Save on the costs of hosting a live, in-person event, including venue rental, food and beverage, travel, and other expenses while still generating revenue from attendees, sponsors and exhibitors. Put the money you save toward crowd-drawing speakers, celebrities and programming. Virtual events are sometimes doubling in attendance—increasing both sponsorships and overall revenue.

  • Move seamlessly to a “hybrid” in-person/remote event. Everyone’s uncertain about what the next year will bring. Even with a vaccine, experts predict that travel won’t be back to 2019 levels until 2022. With APBVIP, you can truly hedge your bet. Build your virtual event platform for a minimum number of attendees. If your event is held in person, simply change your virtual attendee headcount up until the day of the event.

  • Maintain engagement even after the event is over! The platform, with all of your sessions recorded, stays active for three months, with one-on-one networking active within a two-week period from the start of the event. 

  • Receive Outstanding Tech Support. From the moment you begin planning your virtual event, a team of platform specialists will be assigned to you to work hand-in-hand throughout the process.

Best of all, with APB, you’ll work with a company with a 60-year reputation for innovative ideas, creative programming and excellence combined with a track record of helping clients transition to virtual events. In fact, how we transformed our business to survive the shutdown is a story in itself.
