The third edition of the European event dedicated to collaborative economy has been a huge success at Cabaret Sauvage in Paris, but also online on Glowbl.
For three days, Glowbl opened several LiveStages to broadcast conferences and debates that have animated the OuiShare Fest 2015, in real time. The program of the biggest hall, the Circus, was translated into French. Users were able to choose the language directly on the interface, simply by ticking a box. This system allowed to offer a real show case for exchanges on the international stage.
More than a thousand visionaries of the collaborative economy came from the entire world to co-create, meet, learn, discover and start new projects and collaborations. Thanks to Glowbl, the audience has been multiplied. 5,114 unique connections have been registered during the three days, with a peak of 195 online users simultaneously connected on the first day. It was like if an additional room had been grafted on the original scene. Glowbl’s advantage is that it’s able to welcome an illimited number of participants and to offer networking solutions. Everyone can interact per chat or live tweet but also consult profiles of their neighbours as well as get directly in touch with them.
Many different nations came together on Glowbl: French, Spanish, American on the podium followed by English, Belgian, German, Italian, Brazilian, Swiss and Dutch. The dedicated hashtag of the event, usable directly on Glowbl, has been quoted non-stop during all days, e.g. when Couchsurfing or Blablacar entered the stage or for the speeches of Aral Balkan (ind.ie), Jeremiah Owyang (Crowd Companies), Rob Hopkins (Transition Network), Sarah Horowitz (Freelancers Union) and Alessandra Orofino (Meu Rio) who already held a webinar on Glowbl before the beginning of the festival.
