LIKES & HAND-RAISED
Here’s what our client has to say about FLOOR
Geetika Dayal, Executive Director
Having been in regular touch with the 10times team over the last few weeks, we took the decision of hosting SmashUp, our first fully online full day e-conference on Floor.
The features and functionalities were comprehensive and helped replicate a physical event. The platform worked smoothly and we did not experience any glitches. The team was responsive and fully hands-on in terms of support and coordination. We have read positive feedback from the delegates. I am confident that it will continue to grow and evolve and fulfil the gap that has been created in the ecosystem

Favorite Features from FLOOR
These features got special mention by our Client
With so many back-to-back sessions going live during Smashup, it was necessary for the hosts to coordinate with the panelists in advance.
The backstage feature on FLOOR gave autonomy to the host for coordination before getting anyone live on the stage. It also provided enough room to the speakers to get aware with the functionality of FLOOR. The ability to switch between backstage and frontstage ensured flexible management of the event.
The event brought together, entrepreneurs, startups, angel investors and venture capitalists. The motive of the event was to encourage participants to bond in an informal, interactive culture, to help them learn from experience and create new ideas.
All this would not have been possible without the networking convenience that FLOOR offers. Including public meetings, exhibitor interaction & VIP room, around 1736 meetings happened during Smashup!
