What is Haia?

Haia is a web based platform allowing you to create online or hybrid events. No need for any downloads; Haia is browser based, and accessible for everyone.

We have worked with event organisers and attendees to find out what they like (and don’t like!) about hosting and attending events. We’ve developed a platform that includes everything people want, and more.

Networking

This is where attendees can meet and collaborate. Organisers can set how long the networking lasts for, and you can filter attendees if you want to match like-minded people!

Live Translation

A fully integrated simultaneous translation service allows multiple language users to interact seamlessly with each other.

Accessibility

Haia makes events accessible to anyone by being intuitive, easy to use, and removing the need to travel. You can be there from anywhere.

Marketing Integration

Track who attended your event, how long they stayed, and how they liked it, all within Haia.

Hybrid

Extend your audience reach and ensure everyone can access your event. Haia makes hybrid easy.

Exhibition Area

Virtual ‘trade shows’ made easy. Allow your attendees to showcase their latest developments, with live attendance!

Easily build your next event

Built as a flexible no-code platform, organizers can set up an event in minutes.

Our Story

Based at the incredible Menai Science Park (M-SParc) in north Wales, backed by research excellence at Bangor University, developed with Animated Technologies and Zero Dependency, Haia was created to change the world.

Borne of the Covid pandemic, and backed by Innovate UK funding, Haia is responding to the demand not only for online events during the pandemic, but for hybrid events post-covid.

People have been able to use technology to connect to one another like never before, and while some people can’t wait to go back to physical events, for others this just isn’t possible. Travel time, costs, access issues, and more, mean that online is the preferred option for many.

Rather than use existing software and try to adapt it to suit all requirements, the Haia team decided to build something from scratch, taking everything that worked in physical events and developing it for online and hybrid. We’ve also looked at what people don’t like about events, such as event creation or confusion around new technology, and worked to make these easy and fun.  Events should be exciting and benefit everyone who attends them. Haia is here to ensure this can happen. Say Hello to the world!
