Events and meetings

We organize large-scale events.

We manage in-person and online events – such as conferences, forums, and meetings – and position them on the global stage.

What we do

Our partners rely on us for the organization, facilitation, and communication of events and meetings. We do it all, from online fairs to augmented and virtual reality-powered meetings, from communities of practice to high-level conferences abroad. Our goal is to unlock scale effects and promote innovative, blended learning to improve the world of work.

We use a proven set of practices and draw on our in-house expertise in topics as varied as design, promotion, logistics, evaluation, and reporting to create events of different size and scope. Like much of the work we do, events and meetings are available in online or face-to-face formats, or a blend of both.

Global hybrid events

For example, in 2022, we were responsible for communication and advocacy around the 5th Global Conference for the Elimination of Child Labour. Our team developed a communication ecosystem which included channels such as the official website, the social media #RaiseYourHandForKids challenge, an app for in-person Delegates, and a weekly newsletter.

We also adapted to the hybrid format of the event, which took place both in person in Durban, South Africa as well as online through live stream video conferencing platforms. And, with more than 10,000 total participants joining from all over the world, we ensured the live stream was available in three different languages.

The ITCILO also handled on-site branding, from banners to informational signs, as well as virtual reality components. For example, participants watched the ILO Dreams of Gold virtual reality experience using our Oculus headsets. There was also a holobox that helped bring speakers and children center stage.

Coordination with stakeholders, including the ILO and the Government of South Africa, proved crucial to the success of the event. In total, we reached more than 500,000 people using the hashtag #RaiseYourHandForKids. Celebrities and global leaders including former ILO Director-General Guy Ryder and South Africa Minister of Labour TW Nxesi joined the challenge.

There was a practical change after the workshop. We started to carry out audits on productivity for our members as a new service.
