Avanade

Every year, Avanade’s TechSummit conference takes place in Seattle and in 2016, Sendrato supplied smart wristbands for the event attendees.  Sponsors of the event were able to connect with their target group and a simple button click allowed event attendees to connect with each other during the event.

Event Dashboard

The Sendrato Event Dashboard was used to monitor the wristbands, infrastructure, base stations and RFID readers. The 9 different rooms of the Microsoft Conference Center have been displayed on the dashboard to visualise the number of attendees that were in the room at that given time.

Setup

In total 8 base stations have been installed. All base stations were powered by PoE injectors. In the sponsor room a total of 11 RFID readers were deployed, one for each sponsor.

Once a year we invite our best people to a conference we call TechSummit to learn, share client stories, and be inspired. To create an immersive attendee experience, we partnered with Sendrato to develop a customized wearable. Sendrato was easy to work with and their expertise in supporting large events with digital experiences made for a phenomenal conference experience for our employees and vendors.
