Setting up the virtual event
So, the different sessions were easily setup and tailored to match the KTH branding and colors.

Things started off in the main session where the participants could watch the studio livestream, professionally moderated and produced in the highest quality! Also, interaction was popping of with both polls, reactions and leaderboard activated.

The hour was soon over and people were getting ready for the live questions and answers, with the different programs represented in separate rooms.
6 different live sessions and Q&A in parallell
Six different live rooms where open for the participants to jump between, using the space as an overview. In each room - 3 to 6 hosts from KTH were participating in video for the live Q&A.
