We had a very special Tech Tuesday this week featuring Konveio and unveiled the exciting ways we are utilizing the tool for the #NCDD2018 conference! Konveio is a digital outreach platform that turns static PDFs into engaging websites to better convey ideas, collect feedback, and spark action. We strongly encourage you to check out the recording of the call to learn more about it!
Over 90 participants tuned in to learn more about Konveio and how we plan to use the platform to bring the conference guidebook to life for #NCDD2018. Because NCDD conferences are highly engaging experiences, and we are always seeking new ways to bring in new tools and processes, that’s why we teamed up with Konveio to enrich the experience of conference attendees with this interactive option of the guidebook (in addition to the hardcopy one we will provide in each participants’ tote bag when you arrive).
NCDD2018 will be from Friday, November 2 to Sunday, November 4th and is going to be a fantastic time for practitioners and enthusiasts of dialogue, deliberation, and engagement work to dig in together about how to build capacity for this work and amplify its usage. We hope you will consider joining us if you haven’t registered already so you can both experience this powerful event and have a real opportunity to use Konveio in action! Get your ticket for the whole conference or check out the single-day rate; and don’t forget to explore the pre-conference offerings happening on Thursday, November 1st, the day before NCDD2018 officially starts!
On the call, Chris Haller, founder and CEO of Urban Interactive Studio, gave a quick overview of Konveio (which was initially called CiviComment) with some real-world examples and showcased all the fun and useful features of the digital #NCDD2018 conference guide. How Konveio works is users simply upload their PDFs to an online viewer so others can read and navigate them in their browser. They then add maps, videos, charts, and other rich content to make it more insightful and easier to explore. Finally, they can ask for feedback using embedded surveys or comments directly on the document. Chris walked us through the digital version of the #NCDD2018 guidebook and exciting components, like: interact with other attendees, watch the embedded conference teaser video, have the ability to leave comments on workshops and on specific parts of the book, tweet content directly and more! Click here to explore the guidebook and we encourage conference attendees to start making your own contributions!
