Cornerstone is a live event management company for more than 25 years. By achieving their client’s needs with flawless execution and creative vision, they are the leaders in the event management industry. However due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, to meet their clients’ expectations, Cornerstone’s strategy pivoted toward bringing their events on the global stage by hosting high-value productions online. To do this, they needed a platform to host, create, and manage events online. EKKO Media answered that call.
EKKO Media created the Cornerstone Evolve platform, an online live broadcasting and video hosting platform that allows Cornerstone to host and manage online events for a myriad of clients. The platform called for intuitive navigation and ease of connectivity among event attendees and event speakers/talent. The Cornerstone Evolve platform allows administrators to quickly design interactive events, build and gather analytic reports, host limitless live streams with no coding required.
For the last 26 years, Cornerstone has made a name for itself planning, designing, and executing high production events. Their past projects include the Porsche 911 Launch Party, hosting the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit, and the Young Living International Grand Convention, one of the world’s largest conventions.
The goal was to create an organized and powerful design tool in order to streamline the development and feel of online hosted events. The Evolve platform would have to be able to acclimate to Cornerstone's client’s expectations of delivering high energy and interactive events in an online space as well as present an easy course of action for collecting attendee feedback and gaining an important analytical perspective.
The Analytic Integration section is a digital information hub for all of the digital traffic generated during a Cornerstone-hosted virtual event. It is a holistic view of the effectiveness of the hosted virtual event with information and insight regarding Audience, Acquisition, Behavior, Events, Users, and Tools.
Downloadable predetermined reports/report generation with a date range. The analytics gathered can be used internally or for marketing purposes post online events.
Video on Demand
Purchases are handled through a payment gateway integration with backend reporting tools managed through a custom dashboard.
Quick and Easy Design
With the Evolve Page Builder, admins are able to build custom pages for their events on the fly and with no coding required. Now anyone can build professional pages with none of the development costs. The simplistic yet elegant drag and drop system allows for complex and interactive pages such as eCommerce product pages, custom live stream pages, breakout rooms, and 3D Panorama experiences with a couple of clicks.
All your web assets are sorted and stored in an easy and manageable way. Adding corporate promotional videos, banners, 3D panorama files, and products to the repository allows them to be effortlessly integrated.
3D Panorama Experience
Knowing Cornerstone's reputation for creating spectacular and interactive events, EKKO Media decided to integrate the 3D Panorama Experience to bring an additional immersive experience to the Evolve site capabilities.
Streaming Without Limits!
Attendees are able to chat with the speakers and moderators simultaneously during the live virtual events. Evolve can use any third-party Live Chat integration to elevate the crowd experience and build a more intimate rapport between attendees and talent/speakers.
As virtual events progress, the speaker’s professional biography is made readily available to attendees and moderators.
Create interactive quizzes to gauge attendees’ engagement, test their knowledge and vital topics, and as a resource tool to collect valuable data on what attendees want to see next year.
Social Media Integration
With the Evolve platform, users are encouraged to engage with the site along with Cornerstone’s client’s social media through Social Media Integration. It increases brand reach and engagement to ultimately help build a bigger audience. The Evolve platform and social media integration work together seamlessly to help promote brand interaction while boosting traffic to social media accounts.
Not surprisingly, the website has received numerous awards for design, user experience (UX) and user interface (UI). The awards are nice, but the real reward has been the growing popularity and reputation of the brand.
