How a2z, Inc. helped InfoComm deliver a highly successful global event

InfoComm08 (Las Vegas, June 18-20, 2008) was history’s largest annual conference and exhibition for audiovisual buyers and sellers.

Challenge
The size and complexity of the show resulted in several challenges to InfoComm: how to consolidate data from several loosely connected systems? How to better integrate the conference/session database management with overall event management? How to transition from a manual booth sales to an automated process to save time and reduce eventual errors?

Solution
The InfoComm team meticulously planned the event and provided stringent but well thought through requirements to a2z. Thereafter, InfoComm and a2z teams worked closely over several months to design, host and manage a solution that not only delivered on requirements, but also provided innovative functionality such as professional networking.
