WizTales, a pioneer in providing technological solutions for the events industry, recently launched a virtual events platform ‘Wiz365’; an intelligent and customizable virtual event platform to host your conferences, corporate and networking events.

Tell us about the functioning of Wiz365. What are some pre-event, in-event and post-event solutions provided by the platform?
Wiz365 is specially designed to host interactive virtual events, meetups, conferences, workshops, and expos. Apart from letting businesses host their events virtually, we help them at every step along the way with our endless features.

We believe in tailoring the entire event platform to best reflect the brand. With almost 5 new features being built and incorporated every week based on demand, we keep customization at the heart of Wiz365.
Our Live Event is a complete experience. The platform allows broadcasting of events in full HD with adaptive streaming giving our viewers best quality across devices even in low bandwidth. To boost viewer participation, our Live Events are equipped with Live Chats, Q&A, Polling &some fascinating reactions. Wiz365 holds it’s strength in the way how participants can network with each other.

Participants on our platform love how we have gamified the entire Virtual Event Experience by incorporating leaderboards based on the activities they perform and by engaging into a gazillion engagement options that we offer.
There is plenty on plate for Stall owners as well. With our state-of-the-art stall configurators, live group video conferencing, live chat, lead collection, AR Product Showcase and a lot more, stall owners at our Virtual Expos find the experience even more convenient and more rewarding than the physical expos.

Intuitive, lightweight and extremely interactive, are a few words from our clients and participants that describe Wiz365. Wiz365’s versatility is its main USP. We provide Wiz365 under two models viz.

We also create roundtables so that participants can interact with each other and grow their network. The whole virtual event space can be gamified with Wiz365 and attendees can play games across the platform.
Share some examples of the major work done by Wiz365 recently.
We’ve hosted events with some of the most renowned companies around the world including the likes of Google, Amazon, Flipkart, Mphasis, BNI and Ernst & Young. One of our exemplary work had been with IKP, where we hosted full-fledged expo with more than 300 participating startups and companies seeking for investment. Startups had the capability to customize each and every aspect of their stall, do group video call with judges, chat with viewers, present their ideas through their uploaded brochures, generate leads etc. We were also behind the successful execution of Ernst & Young’s yearly Olympiad and Rewards.
What are your future plans? According to you, will virtual events be relevant post- pandemic?
Pandemic has for sure changed the way how we’ll see the events going forward. The vision for Wiz365 post the pandemic is to build a bridge between the physical and virtual worlds- so that hosts and participants can enjoy the best of both worlds and increase their reach exponentially. We hope to make events more connected and technologically advanced. Wiztales has always been a front-runner in event tech space and we’ll continue to do so post-pandemic.
