1. What is FLOOR?
FLOOR is the first virtual live events platform that gives organizers the tools to build, customize and manage online events with all the benefits of physical events that people desire.
Event hosts can create custom event registration pages, add sponsors, sell various ticket types, and define a schedule of engaging segments for speakers and attendees. FLOOR is much more than just a "virtual meeting rooms".
2. Is FLOOR reliable?
For the event organizers reading this, we totally understand the amount of hard work that goes into planning for an event. The coordination, communication, and constant double-checking which it takes, to make sure that everything is ready for the Event Day. You regularly pull off inhuman feats of organization.
We built FLOOR to be bulletproof. We made sure that community events happen without a hitch, meetings flow seamlessly, and attendees across geographies feel like family.
For example, before a keynote, you can circle up with speakers in the Backstage and prep them, making sure slides, audio, and nerves are all ready to go. When it’s time to go live, simply mute your audio and video and click “Go Live.”
You can also keep attendees in the row using FLOOR event-wide chat, while coordinating with staff and speakers in the backstage chat. Sessions also have their own chat rooms.
3. Why should I host a virtual event on FLOOR over a physical event?
Nothing can replace the value of physical meetings, but it’s not always possible. Physical events require travel, parking, standing in queue, catering, security, and a number of other time-consuming and expensive experiences.
FLOOR provides the same amazing value of physical events—new connections and great content—without the inconveniences. With FLOOR, you still can avail networking with fellow participants, expo booths, breakout discussions, and the fortuitous random “run-ins” that happen at physical events. The difference is you don’t need to buy a plane ticket or book a hotel to show up.
4. How is Floor different from a webinar or video conferencing platforms?
Floor is the only all-in-one, digital events platform. If you want to host the event on a platform equivalent to Floor, you might need to cobble together at least four separate programs to get some of the Floor features—and it would still not match up because Floor has an innovative proprietary technology built specifically for online B2B events.
Floor is the only platform that provides everything to host an event with sessions, keynotes, webinars, breakouts, networking, and fireside chats. But that’s just the front of the house. Floor also features everything you need to manage an event from end to end: Registration pages, expos, sponsors, reception areas, backstage, and analytics.
5. What servers are you using and how does Floor protect my data?
We use AWS cloud server for storage. We highly prioritize privacy and security of data by encrypting the session's content, video, audio, and screen sharing via AWS.
6. What is the platform made on ?
Floor is a MVC High-Level platform which is very robust.
7. What kind of hosting you have?
Questions regarding Session activities
1. How many panel sessions we can host at a time?
There is no limit on number of sessions.
2. How many breakout sessions ( how many people in 1 room can be accommodated) are possible?
We address breakout rooms in different ways depending on the requirement.
There can be multiple options:
- We have lounge with 4 seats (networking tables)
- We can create sessions as round tables
3. Is live streaming included?
YES! Our pricing includes our in-built live streaming. No more gluing different applications together or trying to embed Zoom links. Live streaming to social media is in development.
However, you can post comment on social media. We allow users to share to social media. It is an inbuilt feature.
4. Is there a format for video that we have to keep in mind for showing during the presentations?
Videos are played through platforms like YouTube/Vimeo. You simply have to share the screen.
5. Is recording of the session possible? Can host do it?
Yes, recording and downloading the session is a single click feature. Host/ Admin can do that during the session.
6. Is there a limitation on your platform for storage?
There are limits up to 10 GB. It should be enough to ensure there is no issue.
Questions Regarding Attendees & Booths
1. How many people can attend a FLOOR event?
From 10 to 10,000 People
2. Is it possible to have a panel of speakers connecting from different locations?
Yes, it is possible for users and speakers to access the FLOOR virtual events platform from various locations. They just need to log-in into the platform using their email id on our web portal and they will be good to go.
3. Can you add custom registrations fields in registration process?
Yes, it is possible to create custom registration fields in the registration platform from the back end.
4. Do we also have a chat space for people to chat one on one like a private chat space?
Yes, we call it a Lobby.
5. How many booths can we have? How many people can be accommodated in each booth?
There is no limit on number of booths.
Booths are 1-to-1 meeting rooms (imagine doctors chambers)
We also offer VIP booths as an additional option where you can have many more complicated user cases.
6. Can we put some collateral in the booths beforehand like the way we do in actual events?
Yes, you can. Exhibitors can upload their profile, brochures or videos and can set up the backdrop as well.
7. Is it possible to allow unlimited visitors in the booths , rather than one at a time?
Booth are private rooms. Mostly, exhibitors and organizers do not wish to let users in groups, like one to many scenario.
However, we have an alternative as premium booth (which has six slots).
The way other organizers who want unlimited people to come-in to listen (not on screen), they create a workshop type session for each exhibitor on the stage.
Logic: Audience vs. Onscreen
Audience: They can listen & watch. They cannot be on the stage
Onscreen: In booths & lounge, the users become active participants, where they are onscreen with their video on.
Please Note: The Platform works best on Google Chrome browser.
Also, we highly recommend all users to use a Laptop.
