Aico has recently launched Aico TV, rebranding its current YouTube channel and linking it to a dedicated section on the Aico website where new video content can be displayed.
Following the success of Aico’s two-part Virtual Conference, Smarter Homes, Safer Communities in 2020, which featured influential keynote speakers Steve Wozniak, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, George Clarke, and Dame Judith Hackitt, Aico wanted to build on the engagement gathered from the conference and deliver new content regularly.
The channel will cover a range of topics and events from entertaining and informative news to panel-style debates, product reviews, guest speakers, expert advice, case studies, and more. Working with several industry bodies such as Corgi Technical, EDA, and ECA, as well as the Chartered Institute of Housing and Inside Housing. Aico will be delivering engaging content to customers and professionals within the sector.
The first episode launched on 3rd February, The Smarter Way to Compliance was streamed live through the Aico TV channel. This event highlighted how important compliance is within the Social Housing sector and how technology can support social landlords. With over 800 registered attendees, Aico welcomed guest speakers from Thirteen Group, Orwell Housing, and held a panel discussion on the challenges of compliance.
Further episodes are now set to be released every week. Due to the increased demand for virtual events and to support the Aico TV channel, a bespoke on-site filming studio has been built. The studio will support Aico TV and help colleagues create a variety of content for the channel utilising several back drops including a green screen.
