In addition to our comprehensive suite of Session services, we offer a valuable resource to all hosts: event logistics, social media posts and all other relevant information for a host. The social media posts are carefully crafted to promote your session on social media platforms, maximizing the reach and impact of your session.

This centralized hub ensures that hosts and speakers have easy access to all the practical information they need to plan and organize their session effectively. From event logistics and dates to links and notes from Venture Café, everything is conveniently available in one place. By providing comprehensive and practical information, we aim to streamline the planning process and help hosts create an engaging and successful session. Together, let’s ensure that your breakout session or workshop not only delivers valuable content but also operates smoothly and seamlessly, leaving a lasting impression on your audience.

For every sessions there are two different kinds of session hosts (someone can be either or both):

  1. Session Organizer – You are the main contact person with Venture Café and are the organizing partner. Once you have filled in the session setup form you automatically become the session organizer.
  2. Speaker – You are leading the session alone or together with more people. The session organizer or Venture Café staff gives you the speaker setup form. Once filled out you are automatically considered a speaker of that session.

Only for session organizers

The Session management-page is available to all hosts. However, as a session organizer you can add some additional information to your session. At Venture Café we don’t allow any hard sales as we believe in high level conversation. However, we do know that people that are interested in what you do want access to more information. Therefore you can add a custom Call to action that suits your needs. We ask you to stay within the mentality of Venture Café and are straight to the point of your Call to action. This will be reviewed by Venture Café staff.

You also have the option to upload your presentation slides. This can significantly extend the longevity of your session. Your visitors can come back and keep learning from you.

In case you lost it, you can find the link to add more speakers to your session a well information about your Think Tank poll – or request one if you don’t already have one set up.

The Visitor Dashboard

When entering your session, your visitors check in using the QR-code at the entrance. This unlocks the “Visitor Dashboard” on your session page. The visitors can participate in the sesion chat, find additional resources and your custom call to action in order to create a more immersive and interactive experience.

In the chat visitors can post messages during your session. The visitors can like messages so that you as the session host quickly can see top messages.

Session Chat: Engaging Conversations and Top Messages

Engage your audience in meaningful conversations and foster a collaborative atmosphere with our session chat feature. With real-time audience engagement, participants can ask questions directly to the speakers, ensuring that the most relevant and insightful inquiries are addressed. By promoting active participation, you create an interactive experience that captivates your audience and enhances the overall impact of your breakout session or workshop.

Every session has a chat available without any actions needed. If you want to get a preview or post some initial messages you can go to your session page. As a host you have access to see what the Visitor Dashboard looks like already.

Top Messages & Chat moderation

The top messages are visible to all session hosts, so that you and your other speakers can get an overview of the discourse at a quick glance. A sure way to spark a conversion into an in person interaction with the visitors of your session.

The chat follows around in our different services, such as the Think Tank, so that the conversation can continue.

All session hosts are able to moderate the chat and as always participants must abide by Venture Cafés community credo.

Think Tank – Live Polls: Gathering Insights and Interactive Discussions
