3rd MEA FinTech Forum Bahrain

Background

The 2019 edition of the historic Middle East and Africa Fintech Forum Bahrain (MEA FinTech) was held on the 21st of February. Under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain and hosted by ABC Bank and AFS, the conference explored the rapidly changing financial landscape. Bringing together FinTech experts, business leaders, regulators, and representatives from the technology and investor communities, this forum served as an exclusive showcase of how next-generation technology is shaping the world around us.

Challenges

The major challenge faced by the client was the unexpectedly soaring registration numbers as the event date approached. At inception, a total of 500 registrants were expected. With structured contingency planning, our onsite team was prepared with logistics for 700 attendees. However, on the day of the event, about 1,000 registrations were recorded. Our GEVME onsite experts ensured that any issues were addressed without any disruptions.

Solutions

This technology-focused event was rightly driven by leaders in event technology. Powered by online and onsite GEVME solutions, the event was a huge success. Our scalable infrastructure allowed our systems to seamlessly handle the unexpected registrations on the day of the event.

Online

Fully integrated with the online registration system, GEVME was able to provide an email marketing tool to run smart email campaigns and boost registrations based on real-time visibility into attendee statistics.

Onsite

The forum brought together fintech industry leaders, regulators, and CEOs. Seamless onsite support was also of paramount importance. Backed by our team of onsite technical experts, we guaranteed seamless check-in and frictionless walk-in registration. Pre-printed badges and logistics contingency planning ensured an unhindered check-in process. Our onsite hardware setup and rigorous venue testing a few days before the event ensured spectacular delivery on the big day.

Results

Our onsite team successfully managed onsite logistics for more than 700 attendees at the event.

  • We recorded 1,000 registrations.
  • We checked in 800 attendees at the event.
  • The average registration time at the event was eight seconds.
“It was an absolute pleasure working with you all. Your assistance ensured that the registration process was seamless and reduced the delay time a lot compared to last year.

Thanks again for your support, and I look forward to working with you in the near future.” Andrew Tucker
