PRESS INFORMATION - For immediate release 02 August 2012
UK VIRTUAL CONFERENCING PIONEER Partners with Invisage Creative Services
UK-based Virtual iVent, a firm at the cutting edge of virtual event technology , and Invisage Creative Services, a design and technology agency based in Australia, announced a joint working partnership to deliver leading edge technology solutions to the meetings and events industry worldwide.
A key reason for the alignment is the conviction of both companies that future generations of event-goers will continue to drive drastic changes in the way events are run and a joint understanding of the need for more creativity and engagement- before, during and after an event.
Requirements for meetings and conferences are already changing in terms of the format of an event and the need to extend the life of clients' events. Both Virtual iVent and Invisage recognise this and will bring their knowledge together to jointly research, develop and deliver products and services that will improve the overall event experience for all attendees and key stakeholders.
Virtual iVent has spent years in research and development and is the exclusive development partner for the US software giant and industry leader, VenueGen, in the UK and across most of Europe. Last year Virtual iVent organised over 30 major events, cutting their costs by some 90 per cent.
Managing Director of Virtual iVent, Gavin Newman has over 20 years of events experience. He says companies are beginning to see the potential of virtual and online conferencing. "No-one knew about online shopping 10 years ago and look at that sector now. We can offer everything a traditional conference or meeting has to offer - plus much more. Our virtual venues include rooms for speakers to make their presentations and where seminars can take place, as well as conference hall and lobbies where delegates can chat." Said Newman.
"The technology we have developed and brought together allows event hosts to gain more information with complete measurability within an event, as well as being fully interactive. We can be totally flexible and adapt to clients' objectives as opposed to the 'one-size-fits-all' software solutions currently available in the marketplace." He said.
Newman commented "Virtual iVent is extremely pleased to be working with Invisage and to have signed this agreement. We are excited with this opportunity to bring our solutions to the Australian events industry in a much bigger way and to work closely with new clients in this region, and with Invisage, to create more innovative and progressive meeting experience solutions."
Invisage Creative Services, a design and event technology agency with 20 years of experience in the Australian events industry has been providing creative services to the meetings and business events industry since 1993 and has a true passion for delivering smarter events. Darren Edwards, founder of Invisage, stated "Our objective is to connect people through supply of creative design and innovative event technology solutions. It is our vision to perfect the event experience by delivering creativity, leading-edge thinking, innovative technology solutions and a wealth of experience to meetings, conventions and tradeshows around the world."
"With this new partnership we are able to support our existing network of industry professionals including PCO's, meeting planners and event service providers with new and innovative solutions for their events that we were not able to before", added Edwards.
Invisage Creative Services support products include graphic design, mobile event apps, email marketing campaigns, event clouds, collaborative event tools, virtual events, and website development. Their list of services is extensive and includes anything creative and innovative for events. This falls exactly in line with what Virtual iVent strives to provide and continue to innovate through their technology software.
Future events will offer interactive hybrid and virtual solutions so that participants from any industry can search online for topics that they are interested in and virtually interact. These solutions will not replace physical meetings as we know them, but will continue to enhance them into more creative events for a wider audience and global reach. In addition, changes are already taking place in events to allow more interaction and involvement and this trend will continue to grow.
Together with almost 40 years of experience in providing creative products and services for the meetings industry, Virtual iVent and Invisage will provide their clients with powerful tools to enhance their events to meet the expectations of today's younger attendees as well as staying at the forefront of revolutionary solutions for the next generations.
