CAE wins the leaderboard of HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events and exhibitions in the hydrometeorological sector have been cancelled or postponed. But even in these uncertain times, CAE keeps moving forward with several digital initiatives, among which HydrometLATAMVirtual 2021 - a 100% online event for weather, water and climate professionals in Latin America.
HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021, held from March 16 to 18, is the first of its kind in Latin America and hosted more than 858 participants from the region’s National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NHMS), governments, NGOs, experts from the private sector, academia, etc. While travelling is still severely restricted, the event brought together an audience from different countries into a unique virtual platform and helped develop a common understanding between public and private sector in terms of their priorities and partnership needs.
The virtual event encouraged the interaction between the participants by providing a leaderboard game through the platform. And after the 3-day symposium, CAE’s International Sales Team won first place with 4.300 points, becoming the most dynamic participant of HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021.
From Physical to Virtual:
The global pandemic has a significant impact on business and our everyday way of life, but in another hands, it accelerates digitalization and business networking innovation. “Going virtual not only allows us all to continue to operate during the pandemic, but we can also reduce the cost of our operations - in financial and environmental terms”, said the International Networking Agency Varysian.
Thanks to the revolutionary online platform, HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021 represented the place for constructive conversation and debate around building resilient hydromet infrastructure, improving data, developing partnerships, working with stakeholders and understanding the current key themes promoted by the WMO, including Public-Private Engagement (PPE).
The platform interface is very user-friendly and easy to navigate, even for the first-time user experience. The platform provided many relationship-oriented features including conversation, round-table discussions, one-on-one meetings and a networking lounge.
The event was the chance for the global hydromet community to join webinars held by the most relevant speakers coming from WMO, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services of countries such as Chile, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, etc.
CAE’s Solutions Centre
By means of a “virtual booth” feature called Solutions centre, CAE showcased the latest range of hydromet technologies and services to mitigate the impact of natural events.
CAE’s Solutions Centre was visited by nearly 300 attendees. In only 3 days, the introduction video of CAE prepared for HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021 got more than 100 views from all around the world and once again confirmed the success of this 100%-online event.
