Waveplay Interactive Inc., a Filipino interactive event experience company, continues to make waves in international waters as it wins Best Virtual Event Platform (Over 15,000 Attendees Category) at the UK Event Technology Awards 2021, besting other world-renowned finalists.
Pivoting for pandemic success, Waveplay Interactive launched Webplay Virtual Events in May 2020, becoming the Philippines’ first fully-customizable virtual and hybrid events platform, and paving the way for the new normal in the event industry.
Since then, Webplay has hosted more than 700 event days and served more than 1.5 million attendees from around the world, giving brands and agencies the power to translate physical event experiences online, and creating unique interactive virtual events with limitless possibilities.
“After the assimilation of physical events to virtual, the next challenge is how to continue surprising guests. We’ve been working hard to escalate our hyper-personalized virtual experiences by introducing more humanized networking options, gamification you can play with co-attendees, and activities that involve audiences from the lobby to the main program. And in anticipation of hybrid events, we are ready to integrate our virtual tech on ground,” says Sharon Yu Ong, Waveplay’s CEO and chief playmaker.
Now in its ninth year, England’s Event Technology Awards is an event that celebrates excellence in event technology by recognizing the achievements of companies delivering digital and technological solutions to the events industry.
The Event Technology Awards announced the winners last November 3, 2021 as part of its live 5-day hybrid event. A total of 100+ nominees across 38 categories were included in the list with Waveplay being the sole Philippine finalist in the Best Virtual Event Platform category. The event was held at the Old Truman Brewery, London.
A leader in interactive event experiences in the Philippines, Waveplay Interactive creates innovative event engagements for top local and international brands. They continually introduce game-changing technologies that captivate guests on an all-immersive level from motion games, interactive displays, augmented reality, touchscreens, contactless activations, premium photo, and video booths, to virtual and hybrid event microsites.
