The digital party programme and the special focus on innovations were brought to life for the guests by the multi-touch scanner table from Garamantis. They were invited to handwrite their personal innovation idea for Germany on a card. This was then digitised at the table and sent via Twitter.
The 69th Ordinary Federal Party Congress of the FDP took place on 12 and 13 May 2018 at the station in Berlin. Under the motto “Innovation Nation”, delegates devoted themselves to discussing progressive policy approaches to move the country forward.
Multitouch scanner table digitises ideas and innovations
The digital party programme and the special focus on innovation was made tangible for the guests with a multi-touch scanner table by Garamantis. They were invited to handwrite their personal innovation idea for Germany on a card, which was then digitised at the table and sent via Twitter. The inclusive concept and easy handling led to great interest and participation among the guests. A separate Twitter account or prior knowledge were not required at the multi-touch scanner table. Thus, not only older delegates, but also many of the children present participated and e.g. drew their ideas.
Interactive multitouch table tweets from federal party conference
The interactive table tweeted with the temporary account @fdpbpt2018 and under the hashtag #bpt18. The innovation tweets generated more than 60,000 impressions on Twitter during the party conference. At the same time, the table also functioned as a Twitter wall for incoming tweets about the national party conference and informed visitors about the day’s programme and the location. In addition, the programmatic demands of the FDP could be called up and searched from all four sides of the table via small topic signs.
Interactive presentation explains trends
Garamantis also had its own exhibition space at the “liberal market”, where it presented interactive installations such as the Projection Mapping, which won the Innovation Award IT. According to the demands of the FDP, Germany should again take big steps towards the future and openness to technology. We are proud to have been able to work on this with Garamantis at the 2018 Federal Party Congress.
“The social media table by Garamantis was the highlight of our liberal market at the federal party conference. Thanks to the creative, ambitious and independent team, even minimal input was enough to have content developed for a media-effective social desk in no time. This aroused great interest among young and old – especially through its interactivity and use as an information point. Thanks to the professionalism and know-how of Garamantis, our expectations were exceeded. We thank them for the good cooperation and look forward to future projects.”
