QuickMobile drives engagement, adds value and generates knowledge for meetings professionals everywhere
VANCOUVER, B.C. – April 18, 2012 – My Meeting Professional, the global hub for meetings and events professionals, today announces a new partnership with leading mobile solutions company QuickMobile.
The My Meeting Professional (MMP) team will work closely with QuickMobile on a range of developments, from industry news, knowledge and content on the community hub to mobile apps development and cross-marketing opportunities in the events sector.
QuickMobile, the award-winning mobile solutions company with headquarters in Vancouver, Canada (www.quickmobile.com), was founded six years ago and helps organizations “mobilise” their events. Its award- winning mobile solutions have set the standard for event interaction and engagement, creating the ultimate meeting experience in an environment of learning, collaboration and fun.
QuickMobile will help to keep the MMP community up to date with the latest information about mobile apps and solutions for events and meetings over the coming year as the hub continues its growth and expansion.
The partnership was borne out of a mobile app development for an MMP associated sales event late in 2011. QuickMobile’s app impressed iBAHN Enterprise Conference Solutions (ECS), which supports the MMP hub, and discussions about mobile opportunities led to an agreement on strategic and tactical co-operation.
Mike Clanton, MMP team leaders and EMEA manager iBAHN ECS said: “The first involvement with QuickMobile came at the same time as we are seeing a huge increase in interest and demand for apps that support and enrich meetings and events.
“Event professionals now need to be up to speed with rapidly moving technical requirements to ensure they deliver results for clients and attendees. This means understanding wireless connectivity, mobile devices and apps that add value to an event. MMP and QuickMobile will provide this expert knowledge.”
Scott Lockie, strategic partner development manager at QuickMobile commented: “We’re impressed by the breadth and depth of knowledge that MMP shares with its community. We are confident that we can add to the discussion while building relationships with iBAHN ECS and event professionals who understand the benefits of mobile solutions. These solutions engage mobile customers in new ways, improve the user experience and drive incremental revenue, return on investment in marketing, and brand loyalty.”
