Party.Space delivered once again!
We partnered once again with the incredible team at Party.Space who helped us construct a unique design, meeting our demands of providing a communal vibe, distinct spaces for different events during the evening, avatars with the ability to personalize. And maybe the best part this year, and inspired by requests from last year, a BAR!
Check out photos below to gain a glimpse at what our PortaOne team and guests experienced throughout the conference.
Main conference hall
Most of the action and all of the speeches took place in the main conference hall. Check out what it was like to be in the main hall, with visitors at their chosen seats, surrounded by their friends and colleagues from the PortaOne extended family.
Add-on Mart Room
One of the side rooms was devoted to Add-on Mart. Here, during breaks and the networking session, Add-on Mart-related videos and consultations were offered here.
Last year we were told that one of the few things missing was a bar! So we decided to make it happen. See what it was like to sit and have PRIVATE conversations with others seated at the bar.
Those sitting on a bar stool could have a video conversation with other conference participants seated at the same table, and no one else could eavesdrop unless they were also seated at the bar too.
Thank you and see you next year
If you joined us at the conference from your part of the world or if you are joining us now in the present, thank you for stopping by and we look forward to sharing more events, knowledge, and assistance in all things telco related going forward.
Stay connected and see you in 2023 for our next Customer Conference!
