POC Media is the Return-On-Investment conference production company!
In an industry where most conference planning & production support organizations offer only fee-based services, POC Media brings a unique approach to both Live & Virtual Conference Production. For franchising, pharmaceutical, software, and both B2B & B2C companies, POC Media offers turn-key conference management and production services; selling sponsorship, managing & commissioning hotel rooms & travel, and producing events in such a way that all fees are eliminated. For organizations that prefer to manage their conferences in-house, POC can also work via a non-commissionable, fee-based model. In either case, we work with our clients to ensure a measurable ROI from every conference.
And when a Virtual Conference represents the preferred alternative to a Live Conference, POC Media provides 3-D Interactive Virtual Ballrooms and Virtual Break-Outs in a customized VR setting; fully-animated, with functioning presentation screens, branding for sponsors & franchisees, and the ability for corporate executives to host presentations, keynotes, and awards banquets from the virtual stage. Our Virtual Conferences are unparalleled in creativity, functionality, and in their ability to deliver the message effectively with a “WOW-Factor” that resonates with conference attendees.
Cost-Effective Live & Virtual Conference Production in the New Economy is a function of creative and organizational excellence in:
- Theme and message development,
- Multimedia production,
- Audiovisual staging, sound, lighting, and video content,
- Management of all parameters associated with hotel negotiations, room management, food & beverage, power, and internet suppliers,
