    In January 2021, Tech Nation launched their 6th Annual Upscale programme; a 6-month initiative set up to help scaleup and accelerate the growth of over 30 UK businesses. Over the course of the 6-month scheme, 33 founders and senior leadership teams will explore fundamental growth challenges, as well as receiving over 60 hours of support from expert scale coaches. Tech Nation approached us to help with their virtual event, in which they would be announcing the 33 high-growth scaleups joining Upscale 6.0.
    .

  • The Challenge

    1. Produce a virtual event across 2-days and keep 50+ Founders / Co-Founder’s engaged
    2. Overcoming tech issues leading up to the event that were outside of our control

  • The Solution

    1. A well-curated event including a fireside chat between Tom Blomfield, Founder of Monzo and Sarah Wood, Co-founder of Unruly as well as others,, sharing insights of what companies must go through to scale exponentially.
    2. We encountered difficulties with the integration between Youtube & Remo leading up to the event. We solved the issue by working closely with the Remo support team and putting contingencies in place such as having a backup live stream to hand. In this instance we used Vimeo as our backup stream which we had also tested leading up to the event.

  • The Result

    Result: Another successful virtual event with Tech Nation and the 1st time Upscale has been delivered to a virtual audience.

    Zara Kazmi, Events Manager – Tech Nation
    Incredible work and amazing team
    The team at London Filmed were a joy to work with on one of our first team projects together. They communicated with us often giving us updates and feedback, and the team was really helpful on the event day going above and beyond to make sure everything was of the highest standard. The production value of our event was the best it had ever been, it all looked really slick and we got some incredible feedback from our attendees! I am looking forward to working with London Filmed again on future projects!

  • Introduction

    The COVID-19 Crisis has left a lot of businesses in the dark about the future of the events industry. At London Filmed, we have managed to adapt our service offering to help event organisers and businesses keep pushing forward and hold their events in the virtual space. A recent situation where we’ve been able to showcase our virtual event expertise was bringing the community together over London Tech Week.

  • The Challenge

    At the start of September, we partnered up with Tech Nation to produce one of the flagship events for London Tech Week. This virtual event, with over 1,500 signups, set out to appeal to those looking to scale their company internationally. Where to host this event? We decided to host this event on Hopin, a virtual platform for live online events. The plan was for organisers to have the ability to recreate this in-person event experience online, all in one place, factoring in the different time zones and countries involved in this 12 hour global conference.

  • The Solution

    On the 8th September, designed with leadership teams in mind, attendees were able to hear from 72 speakers from companies that have scaled across the globe, as well as from leading investors and experts in international expansion. Viewers heard from; Darktrace, GoCardless, TransferWise, Culture Amp, ThoughtRiver, Babylon Health, BlaBlaCar, Elvie, Social Chain, SuperAwesome, Decibel, TruRating and many more.

    The London Filmed team worked closely with Tech Nation to produce this 12-hour multi-time-zone event, which hosted 25 different panel discussions, keynote speeches and fireside chats from 7 countries around the world. These panels featured high-profile members of local tech hubs, giving the attendees exclusive insight into what makes each region tick.

    The event was mainly made up of 30-minute sessions, viewers were able to join the sessions which were applicable to them. These sessions enabled viewers to navigate across the globe from their homes, listening to these leading tech figures in; Australia, Singapore, Netherlands, Germany, France, UK, New York, Boston, Atlanta and closing in the Bay Area. They were able to embark on a virtual journey discovering how to expand and scale in different regions post Covid-19, and the countries that are open for business.

    Atendees were able to:

    • Make Meaningful Interactions and Network
    • Connect and Exchange Virtual Business Cards
    • Join Breakout Sessions
    • Listen to Keynote Speakers
    • Take Part in Q&A & Polls

    Just under a quarter of the attendees surveyed at the event said that in order to expand globally they need help acquiring general information to help them decide between key markets. If you need regional tips on where to expand internationally, read the insights shared from this day long, multi-time-zone virtual conference event here.

    It wasn’t just us who felt the virtual event was a success! Davina Yanful, Head of Events at Tech Nation has said…

    “It was such a relief and pleasure to work with London Filmed. They were calm, professional and really accommodating to the constant changes and requests we were making. Feedback from staff and attendees was that it was our best event yet – so slick and smooth. We’ll definitely be using them more in the future”.

    So with the dust brushed off viewers’ virtual passports for this Unlocking Global Tech virtual event, being able to virtually travel around 40,075km in the space of 12 hours was a fantastic, exciting experience for all involved.
