Hybrid Format - Digital Platform

The hybrid CCW is a combination or interweaving of the live event in Berlin and the digital online event worldwide. We offer our visitors both formats, creating a network between #CCWberlin and #CCWdigital. The hybrid CCW connects and brings together the best of both worlds. This expands the reach and opportunities for participants, exhibitors and partners enormously. 

In actual terms, the hybrid CCW means: 

  • The Matchmaker is the brain of the digital CCA platform. It functions similarly to a business matching platform. The digital CCW is an intelligent networking tool that matches visitors with each other and with exhibitors or partners and their respective product ranges, according to their interest profile. Depending on how precisely interests and offers match, a top match, good match or match is created. In addition to the networking of all visitors and exhibitors, including the arrangement of appointments, direct digital exchange is also possible via text and video chats. 
  • Virtually all content, talks, exhibitors and people at CCW will take place or exist both physically and digitally online. Presentations from all days of the Trade Show and the two main Conference days (27 February to 02 March 2023) can be viewed either via live stream or soon afterwards on demand. The recordings will still be available digitally on the platform up to one week after the end of the event.  
  • All CCW Conference and Trade Show presentations as well as interesting content in blogs or podcasts etc. can be filtered via a search content tool. This means that everyone can compile their personalized CCW program and individual content according to their interests. Automated reminder emails direct visitors to the presentations they have selected in their personal schedule. 
  • The platform is browser based and device agnostic. It can be used on all common devices. This means it can also be used on site by visitors and exhibitors, offering a host of new options in addition to proven functions. In view of this, the CCW app and the Trade Show catalogue are no longer necessary. 
  • The system also indicates whether someone is signed in live from Berlin or remotely from elsewhere in the world. 

The answer: top-quality, digitally generated recommendations about talks, exhibitors and content as well as networking opportunities between all attendees via the matchmaking tool. 

Together with Coders Unlimited, a smart MarTech company focused on digital transformation of marketing and sales, we have created our digital platform with a focus on high-quality content and networking with the right people and companies for you. 

- Pure networking: text and video chat including appointments facilitate your networking. 

- The complete content can also be accessed on demand one week after the CCW. 

  • Valuable content is king. Our filter function ensures that, as a visitor, you will find exactly the topics, products and services that are relevant for you. 
  • Our Matchmaking Tool supports you as a visitor in exchanging ideas and networking with other visitors, exhibitors and speakers who are right for you. 
  • Absolute networking: text and video chat including appointments facilitate your networking. 
  • All content can also be accessed on demand up to one week after the CCW.  

A whole new flexibility: you no longer have to choose between simultaneous live sessions. Now, the presentations are all streamed live or are available as recordings on demand. The digital platform containing all the CCW content, such as live streams, blogs, podcasts and content from all exhibitors, will be available to all registered visitors and exhibitors at CCW for a week after CCW and the content accessed accordingly.
