Cast Software wins EIBTM technology award

Cast Software has won EIBTM’s 2005 Worldwide Technology Watch (WWTW) competition with “the most innovative technology development for 2005”. Cast Software developed a software solution to enable meeting and event professionals to create winning proposals. The advanced room diagramming software product, called Vivien – The Virtual Event Designer, was originally an Emmy-award winning product developed for theatrical events. The software has been re-written for the meetings and events industry to provide realistic 3D depictions of meeting rooms, special events and exhibition booths. Thirty applicants were reviewed for the EIBTM 2005 WWTW award by a judging panel that included Corbin Ball Associates director Corbin Ball, Olive 360 managing director Paul Hussey, former ITMA executive director Charles Robinson, ICCA ceo Martin Sirk and MPI director for European operations Didier Scaillet. Ball, also chairman of the judging panel said: “Both this award and the MPI Technology Village at EIBTM recognise the impact of technology on the meetings and events industries. "We decided on the Cast Group’s entry because of its advanced room diagramming products, such as ‘Vivien’, which help ‘sell the dream’ by creating realistic images of how the event will look. This product offers significant benefits to meeting planners, show producers, exhibition managers and event facility managers.”
