interchange lets you run engaging virtual events

It's more than a video conference or webinar tool. Interchange was created so that people like you, who aren't programmers or event professionals, can easily create a virtual event that is highly engaging and inclusive.

Video first, because facetime matters

We get it. You don’t always want to turn on your camera whenever you’re on a video call (gasp!). But you do want to see who’s on the other side of the call, don’t you? It’s being human to want to interact with others visually, that’s how we are programmed. And that is why we’ve focused on the importance of video on the interchange. ​

  • ​Encrypted video calls
  • ​No software installation required​
  • ​You’re in full control of what others see and hear​

Freedom To Interact​

You treasure your freedom in real life, and we believe you shouldn’t give it up in the virtual world. Join the rooms you want, chat with whoever you want, and move from breakout rooms to a live stream. Do all this in an instant without waiting for a host to “Put you in a room”.​

  • Come and go as you please (as long as you're authorised)​
  • ​Host-independent platform​
  • ​One-to-one or many-to-many video calls, it's up to you​

More Than A Stream​

90% of virtual events and meetings run for longer than a live event. And it’s because most virtual solutions are single track, or depend on a main host to keep everything organised. Interchange let’s you run everything in parallel on autopilot. Do a live stream on the main stage, a hackathon in a room, and a scavenger hunt in another. At the same time, without waiting for a host to give “permission” or opening multiple browser windows. This level of multilevel interaction is unprecedented in the virtual world today.​

  • ​​Run multiple activities concurrently on one platform​
  • ​Embed custom web apps to your Interchange​
  • ​Live streams, on demand videos, eCommerce and more​

Always-On Cloud Technology​

Whenever you want your Interchange to be accessible by your participants, just turn it on. If you want, keep it on forever! You'll never have to wait for a host to come online before starting your event. And you'll also never have to worry about your host disconnecting midway through an event!​

  • ​Hosted on Google Cloud Servers​
  • ​>= 99.99% server uptime guarantee​​
  • ​No event host required, start whenever you want​

A Letter from our co-founder

For the past 10 years, I've been working intimately with thousands of decision-makers, HR managers, event professionals, marketing professionals, sales professionals, consultants and business owners to build stronger relationships through events. 

My background is in Economics and Finance, and before I entered the events industry, I lived in Dubai for a few years. I was providing consulting services to financial institutions in the Middle East, and consulted extensively on regulatory and compliance matters. I had an amazing time there, but to me, there was only one place in the world I can call home, and that is Singapore. No matter how tough it was to give up what I had, I made the choice to embrace change. Which is why in 2012, I returned to Singapore to embark on a new journey in my life. 

I entered the events industry in 2012 with no prior experience. When I first started, I couldn’t even tell the difference between an A-Frame tent to a Dome tent. It took me 4 months to put a finger on the strategy that I wanted the business to move towards, and a lot longer to implement the strategy. We started with smaller groups, and in a few years we were planning events for thousands of people, and even brought the world’s largest inflatable obstacle course to Singapore in 2018. It wasn’t easy getting there especially since I had no prior event experience and no mentors. I had to figure things out the hard way, while growth hacking our brand and marketing strategies. Since 2012, we organised over 2,000 events. If you take an average of 20% closure-rate for sales, we would have sent over 10,000 proposals to prospects in the last 8 years. 10,000 proposals. Wow. From sending 10,000 live event proposals, to live events being cancelled. This is the second time change hit me hard. 

Since live events started getting cancelled in January, lots have happened. Stacy and I welcomed our little princess to the family. I launched a Facebook group to share tips on productivity and work-life balance especially when working from home. That group now has over 500 members, and 30 video lessons. I added over 3,000 new connections on LinkedIn, mostly event professionals from around the world. We launched 5 of our own Virtual Event Software. And in the same period, I recorded my first, and my 80th video on YouTube. While the world was drowning in COVID-19 news, I refused to let myself be influenced by all the negativity. You have to consciously remove the negativity in your own life, in order for positive things to happen.

There’s really nothing much you can do this year if you’re an event planner. If you represent a corporate who’s still looking to plan events, virtual events is the only thing you can plan for this year. If you’re a freelancer, then try to get yourself involved with the virtual events ecosystem and see how you can contribute. You can also consider planning your own virtual events for clients - in order words - go direct to the client. For event professionals, if you have not launched any virtual events solutions by the end of this year, you’re basically screwed.

Next year is going to be worse for the economy in general, but smaller live events will be allowed to run. Think about how you can organise a series of small events, rather than one large event. Bite-sized events are more palatable to event sponsors and clients, and will also fall within the current regulator restrictions. If an event cannot be split into smaller events, then once again, virtual events are going to be the focus for 2021. They are more cost-effective, and COVID-proof.

2022 will be the start of a very long recovery. Assuming you’re still an event planner by then, that would mean that you have not only survived the previous years. You would have built a reputation for yourself as a professional event planner who was able to overcome the odds. This is extremely important, because there will be a flight to quality in this year. It is not enough to only be planning events throughout the start of this crisis. It is even more important to build a brand, and to let your sponsors and clients know what you’ve been up to. Whatever you do leading up to this point, will determine whether January 2023 is a turning point for you, or a continued struggle for the next few years.

The events business is all about relationships, and reputation. And in order to maintain a good reputation while running a virtual event, you have to make sure that you pick the right technology.

Have you ever heard of Zoom fatigue? And have you ever tried moderating a Zoom or Teams call with ten rooms? This is what guided the development of Interchange. Interchange is a virtual platform that focuses on authentic interactions, mimicking the real life experience and interactions before COVID-19 shut everything down. This platform gives the power to interact back to the attendees. The Interchange platform is intuitive and truly flexible.  

Sign up for a free trial and you'll see how easy it is to host an engaging event on the Interchange.

To your success,

more questions?

How Is Interchange Different From Zoom​?

Interchange is omnidirectional. Both participants and moderators can choose how to direct their communications and interactions. We give the power to interact back to the guests. ​

Can I Control Who Gets To Join My Event?​

Yes. You can choose to allow only registered guests to enter, allow visitors to register as guests on site, or allow anyone to enter as a guest without a verified registration (easier but not recommended).​

what languages are available?

Based on the user locale, Interchange will automatically translate to one of these 4 languages: English, German, French and Portuguese. 
The user can also change it according to their preference when they join your event.

does interchange work in China?

Yes. Most users in China connect to the internet via a VPN. Interchange has been tested to work with different VPNs around the world, including those used by users in Mainland China.

How Do I Manage Room Access?​

You can set room passwords, or restrict certain users to certain rooms and disable the ability for them to switch rooms. Although this is not recommended, we understand that sometimes, having some control just makes everyone feel a little better!​

Can Interchange Be Deployed To My Domain?​

Yes, at a fee, we can deploy Interchange to your custom domain assuming you are able to make the appropriate changes to your domain's DNS settings.​

How Secure Is Interchange?​

Our platform is hosted on Google Cloud Platform, and all the data on our platform is encrypted. The video technology that we use is Jitsi, which is also an encrypted video communication (WebRTC) software widely used by organisations globally.​

What Is The Maximum Capacity?​

As many users as you need. We're hosted on the cloud, on a scalable infrastructure. Basically, this means that as your needs grow, the infrastructure grows with you. On the Interchange, you are restricted by your imagination, not by the technology.​

Can I Customise The Look And Feel?​

Yes, once you get access to the platform you'll be able to customise Interchange to the look and feel that you want. Change the logo, change the colours, insert images and videos. It's your platform - make it yours!​

Can I Resell Interchange To My Clients?​

Yes, yes, yes! We believe the fastest way to get out of the woods with COVID-19 and the recession, is to WORK TOGETHER. If you are a professional event planner or consultant, we can't wait for you to get in touch and to work together. Request for early access and let's talk!​

What Can I Use Interchange For?​

Interchange is a virtual platform. You can set it up as a one-off event, multi-day event, or an always-on event. Always-on events can also be used as a virtual community club, virtual office, virtual members platform... it's really up to you!​

What If I Have More Questions?​

The best thing to do is to sign up for a free trial. You'll be given access to a private member's portal where you can create unlimited events. In the members portal, there are also video tutorials on how to maximise your Interchange account.
