Labroots is an industry leader in the virtual-events space, with a focus on the medical and science sectors. As a designer at Labroots, I am regularly challenged with bringing client visions to life. Whether it be a trade show, medical conference, or an academic webinar, my broad experience across various fields of design has led to successful events world-wide.
In early 2021, I was tasked with creating an all-new innovative approach for client kick-off meetings, and how they may navigate the initial steps of creating a virtual event. This culminated in the creation of a new "demo" site for Labroots, which can be found at demo.labroots.com
