Why ICE works

FTV-ICE doesn't replace your physical conference. It leverages the effort, the content and the attendee experience by producing a virtual event with all the benefits of education, learning and development. Your delegates and sponsors can now involve their teams in the conference content experience, add value to the workplace, and provide an opportunity for staff to earn CPD points—all just by logging on.

How ICE Works

It's I-C-E — a seamless, 3-step process from production to points for participants. You have as much or as little involvement as you wish, and can treat it as a total or partial outsourced operation.

We [1] record all your conference sessions, [2] launch selected sessions online, and [3] add the FTV-ICE assessment module, password controlled and complete with optional online payment.

What is FTV ICE?

FTV has been recording conferences for archive and reference for 20 years — it's a passion of ours. We use multiple cameras, live editing, professional motion graphics, in-conference imaging and on-line content.

The best ideas are simple: we've taken this and created an online platform that extends the value of this content long after your attendees have gone home.

FTV-ICE provides self-contained video websites, tailored-programming and payment platforms that consolidate, maximise and monetise your conference content. Your broadcast-ready programme packages are uploaded, learning-linked to our proprietary multiple choice question module, and optimised for members, clients and the community.

We use the latest technology to minimise post-production time, delivering engaging, broadcast-ready programming of your event direct to an audience beyond the venue. It's a complete service that communicates, educates and—with the right content balance—entertains.

What's more, it's as interactive as you want it to be. We can incorporate Twitter, Facebook, live chat, email lists, comments, and VOIP such as Skype to make your content as viral as you need it to be.

More importantly, the content is yours. You tailor the level of access, assessment and acceptance. FTV-ICE provides the same security and reach that you demand and expect from your emails and your client, member and internal communication.

Now, for the first time, when you're strategically planning and budgeting for conferences, you have a tool that can deliver additional revenue and increased marketing reach from existing expenditure. Move your conference or event from a cost centre to a profit centre.

It's the Holy Grail — a win-win situation.

Why FTV Works

Conferences have proliferated to the point where every industry seems to have one somewhere in the world, every day of the year.

All this at a time when people have never been so short of time, and discretionary budgets are tighter than ever. On top of this, conference marketing is so good it's often difficult to decide where the value is.

Adding FTV-ICE allows you to create a strong conference programme that benefits a much bigger audience than the number of delegates you can fit in a room.

It provides managers with content, presentations, analysis and data that is worth sharing with their teams. FTV-ICE says your content is core material, a knowledge builder that awards Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points.

FTV-ICE doesn't dilute your delegate list. FTV-ICE can be a "Good Career Choice", a Seal of Approval.

Delegates and sponsors can now involve their teams in the conference content experience, add value to the workplace experience, and provide the opportunity for their staff and colleagues to earn CPD points — just be logging on.

How ICE Works

It's as simple as I-C-E:

  • We film and produce complete video packages of your conference sessions, including all appropriate corporate identity, branding, sponsorship, audio and graphics.
  • We compress and launch approved packages to your own customised FTV-ICE video platform, and provide links that allow your clients, staff or members to navigate seamlessly between the FTV-ICE platform and your own site. This provides both access for current content, and easy-to-navigate access to archived sessions year-on-year, event-on-event.
  • We add the ICE assessment module of up to five multiple-choice questions per video session, password controlled and complete with an optional online payment system. This module allows access to all agreed participants, denies access to conference delegates to avoid double-dipping for CPD points, checks participant answers, monitors progress, and either advises of CPD success for you to award the points, or awards the points direct to the participant.

It's a seamless process from production to points for participants. You have as much or as little management involvement as you wish, and can treat it as a total or partial outsourced operation.

FTV-ICE does not replace your physical conference. It leverages the effort, the content and the attendee experience by producing a virtual event with all the benefits of education, learning and development.

FTV-ICE also has the added advantage of preserving complete or edited versions of the most important presentations, debates, analysis and observations for reference and further use later.

Education and timely industry knowledge are more important than ever before. FTV-ICE provides a one-stop solution for broadening the value and reach of your conference content. Contact us today for a free quotation.
