You work hard to produce a successful hybrid or virtual meeting—then what? What happens to all those assets (recordings, posters, transcripts)? Maybe they get thrown up in an archive and you hope people can find the site. What if instead that content was fully searchable and able to be bundled alongside your existing book and journal content?

Meet Silverchair Meetings

Academic and scientific meetings have long been a significant mission and revenue generating activity. Covid disrupted the traditional, in-person conference, driving associations and societies to transform their events into hybrid or online-only meetings. These hybrid and online-only meetings came with many benefits, including greater content capture, improved accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and highlighting the important early-stage research most frequently shared at conferences.

For these reasons, many industry stakeholders expect hybrid meetings to be a permanent feature of the scholarly landscape. The value of the conference content at these meetings is being increasingly recognized by organizations; however, early conference and meeting platforms lack the robust content management, hosting, product, and commerce features necessary for associations and publishers to build new, resilient, and sustainable engaging and revenue generating products. That’s where we come in.

Silverchair Meetings gives you a proven solution to organize, distribute, and monetize scholarly and professional meeting content.
