the best of both worlds

Best Case Digital and Innovation Day 2020

The darmstadtium was the exclusive location and livestream partner of the fifth Digital and Innovation Day, the annual event for digital transformation in the events sector. At its event entitled “Hybrid Events – the Best of Both Worlds”, the German Convention Bureau invited participants to a virtual dialogue about implementing digital and hybrid event formats on November 26th, 2020. It was streamed from the conference room ferrum. In virtual discussion rounds, two of our staff members explained the technical requirements for hybrid events.

Our most important findings on technology solutions for digital and hybrid event formats can be found in the white paper Hybrid Events of #DigiDay20.

Best Case DRUPAL 2018

An event like “DrupalEurope 2018” places extreme demands on the venue’s information and telecommunications technology. More than a thousand users intensively used the high-performance IT infrastructure of the darmstadtium on each day of the conference. More than 1 TB of data was used on the WiFi network, while cable-bound devices transferred 1.7 TB of data and the sessions were broadcast live on the video stream.

 The WiFi is the heart of all user conferences, as it enables participants to work together on a shared project in the first place.
