Program management and publication online
There is no need to involve technical staff or to use third party software to create and manage the conference program, publish it on the event website, and on the mobile application.
OLP is easy to set-up!
B-Com provides a complete session model; including description, allotment, location, and time
. Sessions can be imported from an excel spread sheet, and then optionally synchronized with abstracts and authors to build a full conference program.
Once the sessions are set-up, it takes just one click to generate the full program online and publish it on the event website. Sessions are categorized by type and topics, and are allocated colors and / or icons to help users identify quickly their sessions of interest. Delegates browse the event program in the various proposed views (calendar, list or timeline) or language.
Improve clarity with several program views
It is possible to generate as many online programs as necessary if the complexity of the event programs requires it. For instance, it is possible to have an online program for posters only, for industry sponsored sessions only, for several learning tracks, or for a category of participants only.
There is an unlimited number of topics, categories, sessions, or sub-sessions that can be configured. B-Com has impressive track records of managing complex online program (over 2000 sessions, 100 topics, 800 speakers, learning tracks...). B-Com online program also adapts very well to event programs with only a few sessions and activities.
Use case of the online program
The Online Program feature is meant to fit all kind of programs, whether it is a complex program with a large amount of different sessions and topics or a range of shorter sessions dedicated to several types of participants.
As an example: Keaton is a program manager for a scientific congress. This year, in collaboration with some of the congress sponsors, he is setting up a networking and research update day for the speakers and selected scientists who will be present.
While the 3 day congress program is public to all delegates, B-Com enables him to build a specific program, "the science & discovery exchange day" that will be only accessible from the selected delegates.
As the congress also attracts a number of medical students as well, he organizes two conferences "meet the researchers" that will only be displayed for student participants and researchers. B-Com enables him to personalize on a large scale what information is available to who.
