PennDOT Virtual Innovation Days 2021
In 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to change the way transportation projects and agencies conducted business. Stokes, along with Pennoni and KCI Technologies, were tasked to assist in planning and facilitation support for the Virtual Innovation Days event that took place November 2–4, 2021, planned and hosted by PennDOT Bureau of Innovations (BOI) in lieu of the previous, in-person innovation events.
Stokes handled electronic material creation (including eblast invitations), post-event survey development, PowerPoint presentation review, WebEx platform dry runs, and preparation of pre-recorded video presentations. We also facilitated several Q&A sessions attended by hundreds of participants during the events.
Upon completion of the online events, Stokes participated in an after-action review meeting and compiled a detailed summary report including an executive summary, details of pre-event outreach efforts, an attendee summary with detailed analytics reports, and an analysis of post-event survey results.
