November 2020 saw the first Open House Worldwide Festival, a digital and global event on architecture, urban design and the future of cities. In addition to on-demand content, the free-to-access festival also included a 48-hour livestream, with more than 120 live speakers and content from more than 40 cities around the world. As the technical director, I was responsible for the smooth delivery of the festival to a worldwide audience.
More than 40.000 visitors tuned into the livestream, with up to 600 simultaneous viewers during London’s city tour. More than 3.500 live chat messages, 8.700 watch time hours and 1.800 newsletter subscribers during the weekend show that we successfully engaged an audience around the globe.
