Poken allows delegates to share digital documents, such as business cards, via its Poken USB devices using Near Field Communication (NFC), which can then be accessed on their computer or mobile device.
The technology will be installed around ExCel London so it can be used at future events at the venue.
The Poken deivce reduces the need for printed material at events and can be integrated into social media such as Twitter and LinkedIn. The tool can help to increase participation and engagement at events and offers organisers a number of reporting tools to understand activity from the event.
Stéphane Doutriaux, founder and CEO of Poken, said: "The trend towards greening events has increased interest in our technology, as the simplest way to have an immediate, visible impact on reducing waste."
Paul Davies, director of Poken UK, said: "Poken adds to the face-to-face experience by igniting conversations, making networking simple and fun and creating an engaging experience for people to connect and share rich content at events."
James Mark, executive director at ExCeL London, added: "Working with Poken was an easy decision for us because of how simple and engaging it is to network with the device. Also, the fact that we can reduce the overuse of paper is a win for all involved; Poken allows everyone to reduce their carbon footprint while still receiving the important required information."
