virtual event development

Every event is different and requires elements to make it successful. Currently, most virtual events are held on one-size-fits-all platforms developed by software companies with little experience in the events industry. Tikes has taken our knowledge of the event space, combined it with our web development experience and developed our own virtual event platform. Out of the box it includes all the following functionality:

  • Attendee Polls & Voting
  • Interactive Attendee List & Profiles
  • Live/Recorded Event Streaming
  • Meeting Scheduling Software
  • Q&A
  • Speed-Networking Arrangements
  • Virtual Meetings

However, the most important part of our virtual event development is our flexibility. We work closely with our clients to make sure our platform meets all of your needs, at a fraction of normal software development cost.

web development

In today's world, your online presence is the most common place for people to be interfacing with your group. Therefore, we make sure that all of our associations & conferences have top-notch websites by offering the following services:

  • Web Design & Development
  • Registration System & Other Form Development
