Blendology Launches Two New Interactive Applications at College IT Conference 2013

23 April 2013
Blendology’s ‘My Agenda’ Kept Delegates Connected and on Schedule during the Conference at LEGOLAND

Cambridge, UK – 23 April 2013, 2012 -– Blendology Limited, the interactive event solutions company, announced today that it launched two new interactive ‘tap-to-connect’ applications at the College IT Conference (CITC 2013), recently held at LEGOLAND in Windsor, England.

Blendology’s PROJO tap-to-connect devices allowed conference delegates to connect to each other, and the new My Agenda application enabled them to stay on schedule throughout the conference. With My Agenda, delegates were able to just tap their PROJOs on a monitor which instantly displayed where they had to be at that time, which enabled the conference to run more smoothly and to schedule.

The new Lucky Draw selector application enabled delegates to enter an event sponsor’s prize draw by just tapping with the sponsors.  At the end of the event this was projected on to large screens to watch the interaction between sponsors and delegates, and prize draws in real-time.

"Delegates queued up to use the My Agenda application which was running on a Raspberry Pi connected to a 42" LCD screen," stated Espen Koht, Chair of the Organising Committee for the event. "The interaction was simple and easy to do, and the event saw 147 IT professionals make over 3,500 tap connections."

Koht added, "Everyone watched the live sponsorship prize draws that were projected on to a big screen showing interactivity between sponsors and delegates. The prizes were picked per sponsor as people waited to see their name appear on screen. We wanted something leading edge and ‘clever’ to promote delegate interaction and networking at our annual IT event, and Blendology made it happen."
