How the OECD Forum engaged senior policy makers from 66 countries

"It was very important for all the program and speaker information to be easily accessible and well-presented. The information was evolving all the time, but customizing and branding the app was easy. Swapcard’s team was flexible and supported us on everything we needed."

The OECD: When growing globally means going digital

In 2018, Swapcard supported the OECD Forum for the first time. This prestigious international conference brings together heads of state and policy shapers from all over the world.

Our clients looked for the best tool to network and exchange in the context of an open discussion of global initiatives and solutions. We delivered exactly that.

Through the event app, 4,000 participants from 131 countries could highlight speakers and bookmark relevant sessions. With these functions in place, attendees could create their journey. Memorable experiences and interactions resulted in better networking and long-term relationships.
