FMCNA Virtual Kickoff 2021


For their annual Kickoff Meeting, Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA) looked to FIRST to help communicate their 2021 goals and prepare company executives for the future. FIRST was also tasked with ensuring unparalleled video production in the virtual space.

With increased requirements for an elevated video production experience, FIRST worked to provide flexibility for all speakers involved. This featured 4 separate green screen studios and professional crew shoots around the country including Hawaii and Sante Fe, and 80+ separate remote records to capture event content with over 60 C-level and executive speakers. Championing attendee engagement, FIRST looked to utilize a bespoke, fully brand-able virtual platform to bring the experience and all of its content streams to life.
