International Swimming Federation (FINA)

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the FINA Bureau decided to hold the FINA Electoral Congress in a hybrid event format.

The hybrid event format allowed representatives from 183 countries and territories to get an equal opportunity to attend the Congress either by being physically present in Doha or connected virtually in real time.

Working with FINA, wtv. provided the virtual event platform enabling the remote Members to actively participate in the General Congress and use a web-based electronic system for elections and voting for important decisions.

Event Highlights

  • Delivered as a hybrid event 108 national member federations attended in the Congress hall onsite, and 75 federations attended remotely with overall attendance of over 600 delegates and observers.
  • wtv. hosted the General Congress on the SHARESTUDIO platform, managing the live webcast production with onsite and remote presenters.
  • An electronic voting platform was seamlessly integrated into SHARESTUDIO. Voting results from over 15 votes were broadcast live to delegates.
  • The General Congress was broadcast in four languages, with remote interpreters using a live simultaneous interpretation platform integrated into ShareStudio
  • The language interpretation was also made available via the conference centre audio system.
