The MLOps Community spans the globe and has hubs in over 30+ cities, including New York and San Francisco. Monthly events are a staple of their engagement strategy, allowing members to come together in these major urban centers. These events provide valuable opportunities for networking, learning, and collaboration!
The problem lies in coordinating monthly local events due to a remote team and scattered volunteers.
In the realm of sponsored events, there is a unique layer of complexity. Each sponsor has distinct expectations for a presence and brand representation/awareness throughout the event. Here at AfterWork, we understand a sponsor's needs, and go the extra mile to ensure each sponsor's needs were met, branding flourished, and their investment yielded meaningful returns. This is one of the focal points for any sponsored corporate event, and we don't take that lightly!
Event Execution Efficiency! Afterwork's involvement in coordinating logistics and timeline management resulted in a 45% reduction in setup time and a 15% cost savings in vendor coordination, allowing the MLOps Community team of volunteers to focus more on engaging with attendees, and welcoming them to the community.
Coordinating Logistics and Timeline: Our team took charge of coordinating the event logistics, including securing & managing sponsored venues, managing sponsors, arranging bartenders and catering, and meticulously planning the event timeline. We tapped into our extensive network of trusted partners to ensure seamless execution.
On-Site Support and Miscellaneous Tasks: As the May MLOps Meetup approached, we provided dedicated on-site support to handle any unforeseen challenges and ensure a smooth event experience. From managing name tags to directing traffic flow, staying on schedule with activities and presentations, warmly welcoming attendees, and more. We took care of every detail to create a welcoming atmosphere for community members.
The May MLOps Meetup aimed to foster social connections, facilitate knowledge exchange, and offer community members an opportunity to learn about the sponsoring company. Working closely with the MLOps Community, we curated an engaging event format that encouraged networking, insightful discussions, and an enjoyable experience for all attendees.
Good food, drinks, and meaningful conversations were at the heart of the event.
The Monthly May Meetup was a huge success, and as a result of that, all San Francisco MLOps Community events are powered by AfterWork. It set the stage for future collaborations as we continue to support the MLOps Community's vision and contribute to the growth of their community events.
