Audience interaction tool sli.do partners with Mexican event agency

News

AMERICAS – Audience interaction tool for meetings professionals, sli.do, has partnered with event agency Ptcice to become its official representative in Mexico.

The partnership, announced at the World Meeting Forum official press conference in Riviera Maya, Mexico, 6 June, is accompanied by the launch of a Spanish language version of the sli.do website.

Sli.do, which was used as an official audience engagement tool at the World Meeting Forum, can transform live events by giving a voice to the audience.

According to research, 74 per cent of the audience fear asking questions in public, which means many of the best questions never get asked. Sli.do aims to provide everyone a simple way to ask questions and vote for the ones they consider most relevant. Sli.do also allows organisers and speakers to get instant feedback from their audience via live polls.

“We are excited to officially announce our Mexican partnership with Ptcice at such a high-profile event as the World Meeting Forum,” says CEO of sli.do, Peter Komornik. “Entering the Mexican market is a big step for us as we see Mexico as one of the most  exciting incentive travel destinations in the world and we are delighted to have the support of Ptcice to make this happen.”

Ligia Martínez, General Manager of Ptcice-meeting planner, adds: “As meeting planners, we are in constant need of technology tools that help us deliver events that evolve with the industry generating a greater value to our customers and their audience. In sli.do we found a practical, simple and accessible solution for any type of event as well as a team that shares our vision of innovation, creating unique experiences and is looking to add to the professional development  of the events industry.”
 
Sli.do aims to push the boundaries in the events industry with innovations such as its first-ever Google Glass app for event moderators, which delegates attending the World Meeting Forum had an opportunity to discuss and test-drive.
