emc3 launch new customisable poker platform for virtual events

The emc3 team have launched a new poker platform that integrates with Zoom and can be branded by business to create engaging, immersive virtual events.

The virtual events specialists launched the platform for a client event last month – and the feedback has been awesome!

For more than 20 years, the Black Hat USA conference has brought together attendees from around the world. As with many other live events, this year’s conference was held virtually for the first time in response to the pandemic. Transforming the conference was one thing; translating the usual end-of-conference party was a challenge in itself.

Rapid7, who sponsor the afterparty every year, wanted to create a similarly immersive experience in a virtual setting. And so, they set emc3 to work. The emc3 team created a custom poker site that was coupled with Zoom integration and featured Rapid7 custom branding throughout — including on the playing cards.

The event began with a virtual greeting from professional poker player Daniel Negreanu. Players were then assigned to breakout rooms where they played against table opponents, with Negreanu commentating on the play from Mexico and answering questions from attendees.
