Info Salons Group, the leading provider of integrated registration & event technology solutions, is pleased to announce their latest global technology partnership with Sherpa Solutions from Canada. Info Salons will offer Sherpa’s latest products in Indoor Positioning Systems and Wayfinding Solutions using a groundbreaking mobile platform that works seamlessly within the event, allowing exhibitors and attendees to make the most of their experience.
Info Salons and Sherpa will provide fully integrated access to their technology teams in order to create a technology partnership that aims to be at the forefront of the event industry throughout Australia, Asia, China and the Middle East.
This announcement could be defining for Sherpa across the globe. At a time when needing to offer an end to end solution is becoming more critical, Info Salons on-the-ground support teams will be available to deliver the Sherpa technology to major exhibition clients throughout Asia. In building this technology partnership, Info Salons will also have a very strong offering to tell to new and existing clients.
Jacques Racine, CEO at Sherpa Solutions comments: “Over the years, we have established strong partnerships with some of the industry’s largest and most trusted vendors. This latest strategic alliance with Info Salons allows us to rapidly enter the emerging markets. As a result, we now have the capabilities and resources on the ground by seamlessly integrating with Info Salons teams”.
Jo-Anne Kelleway, CEO at Info Salons Group, comments: “This partnership with Sherpa is an event technology win for both companies, and for our clients who will appreciate the competitive advantages of close integration, coupled with innovative event technology for the exhibition industry.”
Kelleway adds: “Info Salons is committed to bringing our customers the latest innovations in event technology. Sherpa is a natural partner for us as we gravitate towards integrating “best of show” products into our existing portfolio of offerings.”
The inclusion of Sherpa into Info Salons Technology Partners rounds off the world class event solutions that Info Salons has available for their clients, including ExpoCad for floor plans, Presdo Match for social media networking and Passkey for accommodation.Archived News
Presdo CEO Eric Ly, a LinkedIn co-founder, and Info Salons Group CEO Jo-Anne Kelleway have created a partnership for the Australasia, Greater China & Middle East regions.
“Applying social media to events makes so much sense for the industry but it has never been done in a way that fits the natural behaviours of the exhibitor and attendee,” said Eric Ly, Presdo CEO. “We are delighted to find an excellent partner in Info Salons Group, who brings a solid industry reputation, a strong management team, and a large portfolio of events throughout the Asia Pacific, China & Middle East marketplace.”
Info Salons integrates their registration & database applications with the PresdoMatch event networking platform to deliver a revolutionary interactive social media solution that will increase the communication and connections among attendees, exhibitors and organisers at events - and will measure, analyse and report on those interactions.
The system is currently deployed at major US tradeshows such as InfoComm 2012. Users have online access to plan their time and activities and to communicate and connect with exhibitors in a complete solution suite.
Info Salons have provided a great attendee experience and tremendous exhibitor exposure in the past, but now the addition of PresdoMatch enables professional networking and matching at a completely new level.
“Info Salons corporate mission has always been about connecting event content with event communities globally.” said Jo-Anne Kelleway, Info Salons Group CEO. “By integrating PresdoMatch to our suite of registration applications it allows us to provide a deeper, more comprehensive profile of exactly “who” is behind each of those touches.”
And unlike previous industry attempts at event-specific introduction and matching solutions, PresdoMatch builds comprehensive information associated with LinkedIn profiles, other social media platforms, and event registration information.
Info Salons brings their registration platforms and PresdoMatch’s attendee-facing, exhibitor-facing and management-facing interfaces together in one place, providing analysis of attendee and exhibitor activity which will help increase event attendance, generate greater sponsorship revenues, and provide an even better user experience for attendees and exhibitors.
