Read on to discover the unique capabilities of 6 of our highlighted global leaders in networking solutions, and how they get people networking to enrich the experience of your attendees.
- DoubleDutch – Supercharge your Events
Probably the most known event solutions provider in the industry, they facilitate both digital and in-person networking with the DoubleDutch event app. To help attendees identify potentially useful connections, the app enables them to select networking tags that represent their interests and areas of expertise.
The attendee list in the app shows others that share the same interests and allows delegates to have exclusive conversations with each other through a private messaging facility. This is all excellent functionality, but the really unique thing about DoubleDutch is its ability to connect attendees with speakers. Delegates can ask speakers questions and share opinions with other attendees through the activity feed of each session.
2. Grip – Intelligent Business Interactions
Grip is the first and most advanced AI-powered event networking solution currently on the market. They empower professionals and the event industry by providing full-cycle support that facilitates quality interactions. At its core, their proprietary technology drives intelligent recommendations through Grip’s self-learning matchmaking engine.
Grip uses natural language processing, advanced algorithms and deep neural networks to constantly learn about the professional goals and interests of visitors, exhibitors and sponsors. As a relatively small company, they have already pulled in multiple awards for their technology and provide their solutions to the likes of UBM, Reed and ITE.
3. Attendify – Build Your Event App
Attendify, one of the more players in the industry, enables you to create a private social network for your event – imagine, your very own Twitter! Your event can enjoy its own timeline to which attendees can share thoughts and photos, while others can join the conversation with likes and comments.
Whenever anyone joins the app, an update appears on the timeline introducing them to the community. Users may simply click on the newbie’s photo to check out their profile and invite them to connect.
Another great feature of this app enables delegates to see which of their contacts are in close proximity, giving networking a big helping hand.
