The Solution

TBT Marketing, working closely with the OpenPOWER team, took ownership of the production and management of all aspects of the two-day conference. Easing the burden and surpassing the Foundation’s objectives of delivering a simple and effective event to drive measurable ROI.

To enrich the engagement between OpenPOWER and their community of developers and software engineers, TBT incorporated a hackathon element into the two-day agenda. Creating an immersive 48hr experience of collaboration across the OpenPOWER community.

For those in the community who could not attend, TBT recommended the filming and sharing of the seminars and keynote speakers post event. In total 53 long and short form videos were recorded and produced which were shared and viewed across OpenPOWER’s online channels.

Results & Outcome

"TBT were commensurate professionals to deal with and the OpenPOWER Foundation was very happy with the end result they accomplished for our main European event. The team knew the right questions to ask, anticipated our requirements often before we knew we needed them ourselves and ensured we ran on time, to budget and to a very high standard of the event over the two days"
