Community Brands Releases New Integrated Event Tech Suite

August 27, 2019

Community Brands has launched a new suite of integrated event tech solutions designed to help organizations simplify the event management process while delivering an impactful attendee experience. The unveiling comes after months of development of new capabilities through strategic product investment and acquisitions. 

Earlier this year, the company acquired event technology firms Core-apps, Attendee Interactive and TripBuilder Media, bringing in new capabilities for exhibitor management, speaker and abstract management, and mobile attendee experience. These new organizations represent the latest additions to a growing event tech portfolio that already includes Expo Logic, Configio, Freestone and GiveSmart.

Jean-Paul Guilbault, Community Brands president and CEO, said the new comprehensive suite will enable seamless connections between attendee registration, speaker and session management, exhibitor management, badge printing, content capture and streaming, lead retrieval and the attendee mobile experience. 

“Attendee expectations have never been higher, and technology will play a critical role in reshaping the event experience,” Guilbault said. “Our new suite of event tech is built to do just that; deliver impactful and personalized experiences to attendees, and help staff better manage all aspects of an event through intuitive and integrated solutions.”

Organizations that leverage the suite can also expect to save time normally spent on manual data entry and transfers, as well as enjoy a reduction in event data inaccuracies, he added. 

The new tech suite also complements the company’s existing software for associations, nonprofits, K-12 schools and faith-based organizations. Integrations with the company’s association management solutions — YourMembership, Nimble AMS, NetForum and Aptify — not only create new opportunities to enhance the attendee experience but also improve efficiency for association staff and event organizers.

Association executives experienced the new technology at the 2019 ASAE Annual Meeting and Expo, which took place Aug. 10-13 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus.

“I enjoyed hearing about the suite of offerings and think they could address a lot of the headaches we are having,” said Diana Mertz, senior director of councils and member engagement for the American Staffing Association.

The tech suite will also be on hand at the Xperience 2019 Conference, Community Brands’ customer and partner conference, set for Nov. 10-13 at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando. The company is leveraging this technology to manage the event.
