AIM Group International, paves the way on how to realise events despite the Covid-19 crisis by organising a full digital congress for the Italian Academy of Prosthetic Odontology (AIOP). Working in collaboration and in partnership with AIM Group International, the AIOP embarked on an ambitious plan to transform its annual congress to a fully online event taking place from 30th April to 2nd May. AIOP is the first Italian scientific society to experiment with this kind of solution.

Drawing on the technical expertise of Tecnoconference - TC Group, the delegates will be able to follow the congress sessions remotely, simply by connecting online to the “AIOP On Air” platform. Several tools will be used to ensure active online audience participation. It will be possible to interact with speakers and exchange views with other participants through chat rooms and poll systems.

The event will take place in a “virtual television studio” which has a realistic and immersive layout, with different graphic set-ups according to the type of session. The speakers will ensure that their presentations are lively with slideshows, videos and virtual question and answer sessions. Moderated with a strong chairperson, there will be a live talk show, where supporters and opponents of a specific topic will discuss, debate and engage with the online audience. A well-structured area dedicated to sponsors will offer the possibility of following thematic itineraries (live and on-demand), consulting corporate documents and presentations, but also attending one-to-one or even one-to-many meetings with exhibitors.

All the content of the live event will be available on demand for one year. An internal search engine will allow participants to search the content through personalised thematic journeys and by: Speaker, Keywords, Tag or Topic. “I am convinced that this innovative event, whose origin is undoubtedly caused by the Covid-19 emergency, will transform a challenge into an opportunity, opening new horizons even for the future when the emergency is over”, explains Carlo Poggio, President of AIOP.
