With the changing landscape and definition of work and its stated environment plus the growing omnipresence of the personal mobile device, business communication has taken a big shift over the last 18 months.

The blurred boundaries of work and life and the acceptance of remote working as a viable option have pushed modes of work communication to the instant messaging platform. Similar to the evolution of the Wechat platform for the Chinese economy, we have started seeing a much faster pace of uptake and willingness to use what used to be personal and lifestyle-oriented messaging platforms such as Whatsapp to replace email communications.

Since Echelon’s inception back in the 2018 / 2019 period, due to the need for instant instructions, information and sometimes the occasional urgent calls to locate missing speakers, messaging groups are used mostly for operational purposes. At the same time, we used to deploy a variety of event mobile apps, for delegates to check agenda schedules, floor plans, and locations and for a few, using the more advanced features of scheduler and messaging.

Exploring the Whatsapp Community features

For this year’s Echelon, we have started to utilise the Whatsapp Community Features, as a way to solve two immediate needs:

  1. One to download a separate mobile app, as we will be updating the Community with all the necessary basic event information,
  2. Two, to create tight communication Groups for speakers and workshops. If you are a ticket holder do join the Community using this link (could be found in your emailed ticket).

Lastly, during the event, update your personal Whatsapp contact information and leverage the Whatsapp QR codes for contact scanning and sharing to promote less paper waste when using name cards.
