About the ACPPPS:

The Indonesian Pharmacists’ Association or Ikatan Apoteker Indonesia (IAI) is the largest association of Pharmacists in Indonesia. Every year, they host ACPPPS or the Annual Conference on Pharmacy Practice and Pharmaceutical Sciences, a science conference, and exhibition for medical professionals and practicing pharmacists in Indonesia.

ACPPPS moved to a virtual venue in 3 months

For the last 5 years, ACPPPS is running as a physical event in Indonesia, but as the pandemic hit it needed to quickly adapt to a new virtual venue.  To do this, IAI needed a stable virtual events platform that can work with slow internet speed and manage a large number of audiences. 

They are also looking for a fully-integrated events platform with capacities for event registration, public event access, and reporting. In 3 months after they chose EventX, they managed to seamlessly move online to host their first virtual event by November 2020.
