How participants rated Rivelty.Conf 2021

9.5 out of 10 — this is how our participants rated Rivelty.Conf 2021. Last year, the rating was 9.6 out of 10. We were competing with ourselves!

The style of Rivelty.Conf 2021

This year, we decided to update the style of the conference and its mood — we were not afraid of experiments, because we are our own clients. The main task was to create a cozy and friendly atmosphere, but at the same time, energetic and exciting for our guests and speakers.

Cosmic visuals

We visualized the Russian intranet community as a belt of gold particles in a cosmic space. It became the main image of the event. Gold particles are seen as like-minded people who strive to bring real value to the industry. These are people who change the environment and drive the industry forward. Belt particles are attracted to each other. It forms a single passionate community.

Attention to space

The seating of speakers and participants was also a design. We have combined basic requirements with our notion of the comfort and beauty of geometry in placing tables and determining the distance to the stage.

Care for participants

We went through each keynote speech with special attention. We assigned a curator to the speakers to help edit presentations. Special content was highlighted for the interests of the audience. The texts and visuals were adjusted to the conference style. This allowed the audience to perceive information in a comfortable way.

International speakers

The appearance of our international guests on the big screen was one of the most important highlights of the Rivelty.Conf program. Due to travel restrictions, they were not able to come physically, but participated online. We asked them to record their speeches ahead of time. At the day of the conference, we connected through Zoom, and they joined us for greetings part and Q&A. To the prerecorded speech, we added subtitles in Russian to reach everyone in the audience. It was definitely a challenge, but also a great experience and success.

Cosmic photo session

For the key speakers, we organized an unusual photo session earlier this year. We wanted to present each of them as a star of the industry. And they were ready to experiment! Each speaker was portrayed as a space hero of the universe of like-minded people, who create digital comfort for employees and truly change the world of internal communications. Our heroes are the stars that you want to touch, learn from their experience, and become just as bright and inspiring. Everyone has their own style, ideas, and valuable experience!
