To address key requirements, the team has packed this solution with essential features like audience polls, Q&A, social forum, user matching for networking, content sharing, etc. essential to keep users engaged and host a valuable live-event. However, instead of trying to replicate in-person events and its experience, FLOOR leverages the advantages of technology to amaze both the event planners and the participants. This state-of-art virtual technology provides a safe and digital real-time correspondence between singular and multiple parties without compromising on the privacy and ethical concerns of the end-user.
