Social Broadcasting for Associations: Road-testing tools for virtual and hybrid association meetings with WebEx, Adobe Connect, Google Hangout, Facebook Live and Periscope. This peer2peer session will explore the potential of social broadcasting for associations and allow participants to live-test this new technology.
Virtual is everywhere – including the association world. Until recently, associations had to invest in expensive technology and intensive tech-collaborations to enable virtual meeting attendance. Now, the emergence of cheap and easy social broadcasting tools has changed the playing field. Not only can association make their meetings hybrid at the touch of a button, meeting participants have become social broadcasters of their own.
This peer2peer session looks at the opportunities, challenges and threats of social broadcasting associations. Together, we will look at case studies, share experiences and road-test Persicope with a virtual treasure hunt. Join us if you want to know more about how your association can make the most of these new technologies and respond to this trend.

peer2peer sessions are fora for association leaders to share their experiences and challenges openly. We invite senior association leaders and experts to kick-start this exchange by providing their insights and expertise. To ensure an honest and informal dialogue, we ask everyone to adhere to the Chatham House Rule, and to share challenges, failures and questions in addition to success stories and best practice. Whenever possible, the results will be channeled into a white paper and launch a broader debate beyond the participants onsite.
ESAE peer2peer sessions usually start with a welcome by the moderator and an overview of who’s attending. Two more more ‘expert discussants’ then give short informal ‘case stories’ of 8-15 minutes. These are followed by a panel discussion and a debate with the participants. All peer2peer sessions also include a reception and the chance to network.
The event is free of ESAE members and costs € 25 for non-members.
