ROCHESTER, Minn., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, today announced that it has partnered with Skoop by EmBazaar Inc. to provide EXHIBITORLIVE Connections, a new show app, specifically designed for EXHIBITORLIVE.
EXHIBITORLIVE Connections is a private social network for EXHIBITORLIVE conference attendees, speakers, exhibitors and exhibit hall registrants. All can follow late-breaking news and posts, access session information, create calendars, view and RVSP events, and check in with exhibitors. Speaker and session lists and the exhibit hall directory are easily accessible using EXHIBITORLIVE Connections. Plus, users can access the app for private messaging, and even synchronize social media feeds so all messages are posted simultaneously. Unlike other show apps, this exclusive EXHIBITORLIVE community doesn't expire after the event.
"EXHIBITORLIVE Connections has the potential to be the next generation of show apps, and we're delighted to share it with our EXHIBITORLIVE attendees and exhibitors," commented John Pavek, chief marketing officer, Exhibitor Media Group. "Our hope is that this continues past the conference and exhibition, and becomes a strong EXHIBITORLIVE community that lives on throughout the year."
"EXHIBITORLIVE Connections was designed to be a mobile-first event community for EXHIBITORLIVE, where attendees are united on one easy-to-use platform and communicate year-round," stated Neil Patwardhan, founder and CEO, Skoop by EmBazaar Inc. "This greatly reduces dependency on email and other less engaging forms of communication just to remain connected. We are excited to partner with Exhibitor Media Group, a true leader in the events industry, to help bridge the gap between a traditional event app and a year-round community. EXHIBITORLIVE Connections is going to be a true micro community where attendees have a genuine change to extend their interactions and conversations well beyond the actual event. I can't wait to see how folks use it."
The EXHIBITORLIVE Connections app is available now through iTunes and Google Play.
EXHIBITOR Magazine's EXHIBITORLIVE, the training conference for trade show exhibit and event managers and marketers, will be held February 29 - March 3, 2016 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The industry's highest-rated training conference features seven learning tracks and 180 sessions focusing on all aspects of trade show exhibit and event marketing and management.
