Results
A virtual experience that allows the complex apparatus of a political convention to be held online effectively. Speakers from Governor Lamont, Senator Blumenthal and Senator Murphy were able to take advantage of the video chat backstage to be prepared before taking the stage ensuring flawless production and now “is this on can you hear me moments”. Meanwhile delegates were all able to privately converse with one another in private video chat in the moments before and after the main presentations just as they would have had they been together in Hartford.
