Our story

Thola was founded to respond to the need of digital events that are interactive, easy accessible and customisable. 

We started exploring the market of virtual event platforms and noticed that there existed two groups of digital event solutions. On the one hand we found companies that provide lists of attendees, but lack interaction and customisation in design. On the other hand there are full 3D platforms with nice designs but consequently require extra software downloads.

We therefore came up with the idea to combine a 3D look and feel in a 2D space where it is very easy to create your own personalised environment and where each person is visualised by its own avatar. 

Thola stands out from other competitors because of its unique combination of networking possibilities, customisable design and multiple options to bring content to the user.
