  • We combine digital and physical event spaces to drive engagement for visitors, create stronger brand recognition and gain better insight through real-time behavioural data.

    It all starts with registration and ticketing. A web-based, enterprise-wide application, Visit enables you to personalise the online experience for your visitors. Visit lets you, the event organiser, interact with your visitors using ‘go viral’ tools, before doors have even opened.

    During your event, each visitor is given a Poken interactive USB smart device, letting them share contact details, engage with spaces and collect content via NFC-enabled touchpoints. Touching two Poken together will elicit a green glow, adding a tangible element to the sharing of two attendees’ data. As an organiser, you’ll also be able to share digital content with your visitors using the Poken interactive USB.

    Engagement continues post-event, with attendees able to log into a customised online attendee portal, which shows exactly who they met and what content they collected.
