Perfecting the Virtual Conference Experience in South Africa: The 2020 ASSA Convention

When COVID-19 struck, African Agenda and our longstanding client the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA) were faced with an enormous challenge: cancel their flagship annual conference or find a way to deliver it virtually. Boasting more than 1,500 attendees, 57 speakers, breakaway sessions, a 3D virtual exhibition, slick chat functions, and seamless Q & A sessions over three days – the outcome far surpassed everyone’s expectations.
