UNESCO required an event to virtually engage with their supporters, donors and partners to show the work it is doing in response to the Covid-19 emergency and to elevate humanitarian situations that have been exacerbated in this period.

wtv. was commissioned to manage a complex Zoom event across 2 days, allowing for multiple parallel breakouts groups, with attendees having the option for simultaneous interpretation of the 6 UN languages, and streaming to YouTube for the wider non-attendee audience.

Virtual Event Highlights

  • Over 100 live segments with high level government speakers over two days.
  • Management of five concurrent breakout sessions on Zoom by wtv. producers  
  • Live simultaneous interpretation into 6 official United Nations languages using Zoom interpretation channels.
  • wtv. managed the live streaming of the meeting to UNESCO’s Youtube channels with up to three language feeds: English, French and Spanish.
  • wtv.s live event production team hosted the live event on Zoom, managing speaker onboarding, the presentation of slides and the play-in of pre-recorded videos.
  • wtv.s Creative Services Team created a highlights video overnight from the Day 1 session for use during Day 2, as well as an overall event highlight film. 

“the wtv. global team was flexible and responsive to our requirements,
enabling us to deliver a high-level global event.”
