August Product Update: Stage Kit, Agenda, and More!

min read

We had a busy month at Welcome creating new features that are guaranteed to be impactful to your events. Our latest features help make the experience for your producers and attendees easier, clearer, and more meaningful. Keep scrolling to see what’s new 👇

🎨 Create jaw-dropping events effortlessly with Stage Kit

Take your events to the next level by using Stage Kit to drop in built-in assets and create your own simple overlays.

Don't feel like you have to hire a professional designer to create a jaw-dropping event. With Stage Kit, producers can now drop in media like a hype video and music. Producers can also design, name, and save overlays and lower thirds before or during a live event.

🗓️ Build agendas to keep your attendees in the know

Holding a large event without an agenda is like a restaurant without a menu. We've created Agenda so you can list the schedule of events and keep your attendees in the know. Now your events can clearly outline all the information needed for attendees to be aware of what topics will be discussed, where, and when.

Welcome agendas can be easily viewed by attendees during registration and be viewed privately within the live event experience. Attendees can see the schedule of events at all times no matter what room or what track they are in–without ever being removed from the experience.

📱 Drive more meaningful connections with 1:1 Video Calls

Turn serendipitous connections into meaningful conversations by allowing attendees to directly call one another. Half the reason why people attend conferences and events is to network, so creating moments of connection is a huge component of an engaging virtual experience. 1:1 Video Calls help create those moments by allowing attendees to initiate a conversation with another person without taking them out of the event. Those networking can still watch the main stage with picture-in-picture support (PiP) to remain connected to the event.

👀Preview assets before adding them to stage

Never choose the wrong asset again! Preview your videos, audio, overlays, backgrounds and logos by hovering over the asset before selecting it to go live.

Additional updates

  • Directly contact support by navigating to the profile menu
  • Control volume of prerecorded audio and video from one control
  • Producers are now notified when speakers join the event
