The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) hosts the African Business Forum each year in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with the aim of promoting a continuing dialogue between the African private and public sectors. Speakers and guests at this high-profile event include Heads of States, CEOs and influential private sector players, as well as the heads of international organizations and civil societies. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this forum was held virtually in 2021.


For this event, we had to keep simplicity and functionality at the forefront without sacrificing brand visibility for the host and sponsors. We first hosted the speakers on StreamYard, then ensured that the production appeared professional before integrating to Zoom and livestreaming on YouTube. It was therefore very simple for attendees to connect to the platform, follow the discussion and engage with others.

At Flawless Events, we believe hosting a virtual event is all about ensuring a simple and functional digital platform to encourage focused and fruitful discussions, and that’s exactly what we did!
