Eventbase Launches 'Expo Connect’ with iBeacon Technology To Help Exhibitors Attract More Qualified Leads at Expo! Expo!

December 1, 2015 - Baltimore, MD and Vancouver, Canada - Eventbase Technology Inc., the leading app platform for premium events, is unveiling an exciting new product for trade show exhibitors at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2015 taking place in Baltimore this week.

Expo Connect from Eventbase will help generate more qualified leads by matching exhibitors to nearby attendees based on their interests. The product utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) proximity beacons (iBeacons) placed at select exhibitor booths to generate a targeted alert for matched attendees who are in range.

Eventbase will be demonstrating Expo Connect at select exhibitor booths across the Expo! Expo! trade show floor. Visit booth #494 to see it in action.  

Eventbase is also powering the Exhibitor Lead Retrieval App in conjunction with registration provider Streampoint.

  • 3D Deep Maps - in partnership with Heidelberg Mobil Gmbh
