Benefits of Confex Podium
Enable everyone to see everything
The most common complaint at scientific meetings is that an attendee can see only a small fraction of the presentations because of concurrent session scheduling. Confex Podium can eliminate that complaint by giving every attendee access to every presentation in every session (to the extent speakers agree to be recorded). Some of our clients do limit access to attendees. Others let anyone in the world see the recorded presentations. So, whether your goal is to increase attendee satisfaction, or to spread the latest information in your field as efficiently as possible, Podium is the answer.
Efficiently manage presentation files
Confex Podium TM brings order to the process of collecting and distributing presentation files onsite. Our staff work on-site to deliver the service in close coordination with your AV vendor and other contractors. Where a local area network (LAN or VLAN) can be established, Podium will automatically pump presentations from the speaker ready room out to the meeting rooms. Where a LAN is not practical, Podium still greatly simplifies file distribution. In any case it maximizes the presenters’ active speaking time by virtually eliminating the shuffling of laptops at the podium, and by making it extremely easy to launch the right presentation at the right time. If your goal is to collect and distribute the actual PowerPoint files used by the presenters, Podium will give you a completely indexed set of files within minutes after the last file is collected.
Collect new non-dues revenue
A number of our clients sell the multimedia recordings online or on DVD or in both formats. Confex Podium offers a variety of distribution methods, including turnkey online sale and fulfillment.
