This year’s IPPR Oxford Media Convention will be held online using Swapcard as our platform.
We are excited to be holding the first online IPPR Oxford Media Convention. Holding the event online allows us to be bigger and bolder with our aims for the conference. Our programme will be more deliberative and interactive, and it permits us to bring in participants from across the UK and beyond.
The Swapcard event page will be a one stop shop for everything that is happening during the Convention. Due to its networking and interactive features, attendees will be able to engage meaningfully with each other, and the conversation that the IPPR Oxford Media Convention will prompt.
As an attendee you will be able to select which session you would like to take part in and add it to your calendar. You will have a personalised agenda, live chat, questioning and polling tools, AI match-making networking tools and the opportunity to set up private video meetings with other attendees.
We believe that the content, networking opportunities and the agenda-setting conversations that the Convention is known for will still very much be a feature of the conference.
How will the platform work?
Once you have registered for the event your details will be securely saved on Swapcard. At least ten days before the event, the platform will go live. Once it does, you will receive an email directly from Swapcard asking you to join the platform. If you do not see this, please check your junk/spam folder. This link will ‘activate’ your account and take you to the designated Swapcard event website, where you will be prompted to create a password. Your username will be the email address you used to register for your ticket on Eventbrite. If you have done this offline, it will be the attendee’s email you gave IPPR.
All your details will already be on the platform, you just need to edit them as you wish. You will also be able to add links to your social media accounts and a picture.
Once you have set up a password and checked your profile, you will be ready to go. You will be able to browse the programme, add sessions to your agenda, set up video meetings with other attendees, chat with attendees privately and on the general event chat.
