The OECD collaborates with Swapcard for the 1st time

We welcome heads of states and hundreds of speakers in parallel sessions. We wanted people to get connected with their peers. So 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.

Events Coordinator, OECD
For us, as partners, this is really an opportunity to participate in the sessions, get to network and meet some new people. I’ve been using it constantly to check the agenda, see what’s going on, and see who’s speaking

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.
