BeaconHouse Events worked closely with Newcastle University and the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics for more than two years to develop and deliver their 43rd international academic conference – ISCB43, hosted in Newcastle in August 2022. We managed the whole event from start to end and handled 535 delegate registrations from 37 countries, 359 abstract submissions and sponsors to bring everyone successfully together for the five day conference programme.
The conference was delivered as a hybrid event with 391 attendees in person and 137 joining online only. We used the Cvent platform to host virtual elements of the event including virtual socials and a historical tour of Newcastle. All content was live streamed and available on demand, delegates engaged simultaneously in sessions through the app, networked, attended online and offline social events and local excursions, and shared learning and experiences.
“We are very, very grateful for all your help. It was my impression that this was one of the slickest ISCBs I have ever been to – everything just seemed to work. That this was the case while delivering a hybrid version was something that I think astonished and impressed the delegates very much.”
John Matthews, ISCB43 Conference Treasurer, Newcastle University
“You were all so familiar with how the programme and use of site had developed so you were willing and able to be adaptable as the days went by. I really hope we can work with you in the future for other conferences and events.”
