UMAL is a mutual organisation that provides cover exclusively for Universities and Further Education Colleges and Institutions in the UK. They are widely recognised as a market leader and for having unequalled knowledge of the constantly evolving risks of their Members.

Each year, UMAL hosts an Annual Conference to discuss topical issues and share knowledge with its Members. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, UMAL had to postpone their most recent in person event and host it virtually instead. UMAL chose to deliver their event using OneVenue.

UMAL required a virtual event platform that supported multiple presenters, q/a sessions, and roundtables to deliver a truly engaging event. UMAL used VCM to organize multiple keynotes with audience q/a. Ultimately, UMAL could safely deliver an accessible event to over 90 attendees while reducing both travel time and costs!



“We chose OneVenue after our initial call with Cassidy as they fulfilled all our requirements and were very enthusiastic about helping us create our virtual conference. We were really happy with the service provided, particularly by Amanda and David who were very responsive with any queries and helped the whole day run smoothly. We received lots of positive feedback helping us to successfully run our conference virtually for the first time.”
