WEBINAR: Can Your Meeting Afford To Pass On Venue-Wide Geolocation?


May 12, 2015 6:00 PM UTC until May 12, 2015 7:00 PM UTC

Exhibitors and attendees are more and more
unprepared when they attend events. Whether it is
from lack of time or information overload, the fact is that most people fly in, rush through the event and fly out, having missed, more than taken advantage of, opportunities.

Attendees spend less time preparing for events and their undivided attention is hard to get. The results are low engagement, missed opportunities, fuzzy ROI, ambiguous ROP and ultimately, exhibitors and attendees alike end up disappointed.

In this one-hour session Jacques Racine, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Sherpa, will present case studies, explain the ins and outs of indoor geolocation as well as those of some ancillary technologies, such as iBeacon and attendee tracking.

Sherpa will explain how the system recently deployed at BCEC can be set up in any venue, bringing everyone together like never before.

  • Discover how attendee tracking can be the answer to today’s fast paced events
  • Examine the benefits of geolocation from a planner and supplier perspective
  • Assess what advantages your organization might gain with this technology
