Key Features of the MTN Platform for Virtual Events
MTN is a bespoke platform that has been in development for over 2 years, to ensure all elements of a virtual event can be delivered in an easy to use environment.
Fully searchable event attendee profiles
Attendees can create their own profile on MTN, and use categories and tags to make their profile searchable for other attendees.
Attendees of the same company can also create a company page.
Meetings can be scheduled in advance on MTN, and confirmations, cancellations and rescheduling can all be managed by each individual attendee. Attendees in different time zones? The system will automatically find mutually available meeting slots
Online video meetings
Once a meeting is due to start, just click the zoom link in the platform and the meeting begins in a private zoom room
Virtual event ‘booths’
The MTN Marketplace allows attendees to create virtual ‘booths’ where they can create content to explain and support their product and service. The booths are linked to your event so only accessible for your attendees, and are fully searchable too.
Webinars live and recorded
Webinars can be scheduled and run in the MTN zoom account or your own zoom account.

We can also help with any aspect of planning your event, we have been running events from the mountain industry since 2012 and have a wealth of experience!
Invite MTN members to join your event
Your event can be run privately, hidden from other MTN members, or you can invite other MTN members to join your event by making it public on the platform. If you are looking to connect with many members on the MTN platform, a virtual event can be the ideal way to do it.
