Getyoo

C&IT have noticed delegates on the EIBTM floor using this contact and information sharing hardware.

The USB device, often worn as a lanyard attachment, allows delegates to transmit contact details and other information using Near Field Communication (NFC).

Pokentag offers similar information transmission, but via a sticker.

Conpass

Apps are the talk of the town right now, but this multi platform software allows access to a conference programme without an internet connection, personalisation options and the ability to navigate an exhibition floor using an interactive floor plan.

Meta Fusion

This technology allows conference organisers to stream their event to a wider audience. The site offers the ability to display slides from the event alongside the keynote speaker´s speech.

QR Codes

The use of QR codes has taken off this year at EIBTM, with stands including Poland, displaying large QR codes for delegates to scan using a smart phone. Poland´s latest news, information and offers are accessible instantly.

Pep

This CAD-based event planning software allows users to create 3d replicas of their events. Planners can view virtual reality simulations of the space from multiple angles.
