Eventsforce and Zerista Form Strategic Partnership

Eventsforce, a leading technology provider of event management software and Zerista, the event app platform, announced the formation of a strategic partnership to bring an integrated and comprehensive event management and mobile app platform to serve North America and Europe. By combining the companies' expertise and market-leading event solutions, organizers will benefit from a platform that delivers customizable event experiences across desktops and mobile devices.

Eventsforce will integrate Zerista's customer centric mobile platform into their event management software. Zerista will also incorporate Eventsforce's powerful abstract management, call for Papers functionality, and registration into its mobile app platform to enhance the entire event management experience for show organizers of meetings of any size. This will result in a comprehensive solution that delivers new opportunities for event organizers intending to build engagement and connection with their attendees.

The combined solution features a pre-built integration for a rich set of data, including attendee data, speaker data, session data, abstracts and content. As a result, event apps update in near real time and without intervention from event professionals.

The strategic partnership was driven by both executive teams coming to the table with event producers and realizing that their needs went deeper than finding the right technology solutions. They found that event producers often required advice and ongoing evaluation of existing event processes that were not adequately evolving to meet the needs of all event participants and business stakeholders.

Poken integrates iBeacon and NFC with new 'Super' and 'Real-Time' Touch Points

Poken 'the Green Event Platform' announced the launch of two new functionalities to its event technology. Designed to enable event organisers to offer visitors a wider choice of options for collecting digital content, Poken's new Super and Real-Time Touch Points use both NFC and iBeacon technologies. 

The Super Touch Point is a digital sticker than enables event attendees to collect digital information, such as company and sales literature, social media links, or video, by simply touching their event badge to the Touch Point. The digital information contained in the Touch Point, loaded up by the exhibitor using a simple web interface, is sent automatically to the visitors' email or can be accessed through an online web portal.

Poken's new Real-Time Touch Point shares all the features of the Super Touch Point, while also allowing information to be gathered and collected in real time using an embedded GSM module, ideal for events that need up to the minute data collection such as for real-time session check-in or tracking attendance at meetings in real time. 

Poken's CEO Stéphane Doutriaux says: "Our new Super and Real-Time Touch Points open up a wealth of new options to enhance the visitor experience and enable event organisers to simplify paperless content collection. With iBeacon technology increasingly in demand, we are delighted to be able to integrate this feature into the Poken event platform and open up more options for event organisers to connect visitors with exhibitors." 

The benefits of this new technology are expected to have the greatest impact on large scale events and congresses. Poken's range of products and its paperless-event services platform allow events, tradeshows and congresses of any size to take full advantage of the ease and efficiency of digital content collection.
