I love, love, love all things events and technology. If you can’t tell by my tweets, Facebook posts and all my other social media interactions, I love to talk about events and the tools that help us do what we do better. In June 2011, I partnered with an organization called imbookin to bring you PlannerTech – an event technology showcase. This weekly blog series is going to help continue to expose you to new tools you need to be aware of as an event planner. Also, in case you missed it, PlannerTech could be coming soon to your area!
Today, we’re talking about Events-QR
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
Events-QR it’s an events service that uses QR codes to help event planners to spread the agenda of the events and to allow all the assistants to know the relevant information and the program of the event they will attend. Every event has its own QR code. Scanning this unique QR code the users’ smartphone will be able to quickly access the agenda and explanation of the event that is taking place in that exact moment. Thanks to the navigational buttons they will also be able to see the past and future scheduled events.
We can also provide a microsite for the event so people can not only see the agenda but the location, information about the speakers, etc.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social?
All kind of events, basically all those with a large agenda.
What does your tool help event planners do better?
We know that usually they are a lot of changes on a event calendar. And theses changes cannot be done to the paper once it is printed and shared. So, we give the unique opportunity to have a real-time updated agenda for all those who will attend, and to know what is exactly going on at that time by just scanning a QR code.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
It is specially designed to be viewed with mobile devices.
