Virtual Experience

The Virtual Experience

The 2021 Hybrid Edition is the best way to ensure high-quality content and effective networking in a new dimension and quality in a safe environment – @home, in your office, and everywhere in the world.
So we are bringing the Cotton Conference and the Cotton Week Bremen directly to you!

You are being heard!
Your participation will be not only be about listening to the latest research and discussions in a professional live stream. We can assure you live personal interaction within the lectures with speakers and panellists, ask your questions and they will be answered live in the session in the Q&A with the session chair and speaker.

Search and connect!
Connections and informal meetings are always important – we support you with a fully searchable participants list, even within the sessions. Save your favourites, write them a message that will be delivered to the chat system but also directly to the email account – very easy to start conversations and respond in advance, during and even after the conference!

Be effective and organized!
We know that it is not easy to dedicate yourself for an online conference a whole day. If your schedule is tight and needs a well-prepared calendar, we have a nice feature: in our platform, you have your own calendar which contains the sessions you have planned to attend. You can export the agenda files, even connect it to your own Outlook or Google calendar! Of course, everything is matched with your time zone, no confusion with that. And by the way: if somebody asks you for a meeting / video call, your calendar will be matched, so that you do not have parallel meetings or programme points.

Match and meet with new contacts!
We even support you with a digital matchmaking based on defined questions, needs and areas of interest with our integrated business speed dating tool. It’s like standing at the high table in the coffee break – attend a 15 minute networking session and we will source you with three participants matching with you in a live video call.

Real live video calls!
Proactively schedule meetings with the speakers and participants you are discovering even weeks before at our event platform. Meet yourself live in one-to-one video calls or make it even a group meeting. Everything is very smooth included in our platform, you need no desktop software to install.

Informal and open discussions!
Listening to lectures is the key pillar of conferences, but what about sharing your ideas and impulses and discussing them in a less formal way – now we will give you the opportunity to meet live with participants in our Open Conference sessions: virtual tables opened by you and other participants with a topic free of choice. Gather together and get the direct insights in other options and views, elevating your knowledge to the level we all like happening at conferences.

Meet the sponsors!
We are very happy with the long-time sponsors supporting the conference. This time, you always know where they are and what they do. They are presenting themselves in our partner area, you will see descriptions, pictures, videos, white papers, and other documents. But also, the staff and colleagues being at the at the conference are visible in the profile, you even can contact them directly! At our dedicated sponsor meet-up session you can connect to them in a live meeting.

Don’t miss out anything!
Remember the usual conference, running from one to the other sessions, having short breaks and sometime being sad not having had more time for more meetings and informal talks during or after the conference. Now, at our event & networking platform you will have the time and opportunity to search, being found, make first connections and have deeper follow up talks.
And what about all the lectures – sometimes you miss one, or you wish to hear a special one again. No problem, all conference lectures will be recorded and can be viewed afterwards on-demand.

Be mobile and flexible!
You are travelling or want to follow us mobile? No problem, load the app to your smart phone or tablet, and experience all the same features like within the desktop browser page.
