Events are Better with Barcodes

Posted by Lauren Zirkelbach

Sep 15, 2016 8:50:14 AM

Barcodes are becoming a part of everyday life. We use them at the grocery store, at the airport, and even to check into the movie theater. Technology has made it possible for particular patterns of lines or squares - aka barcodes - to contain everything from demographic information to today’s price on organic tomatoes. Because of their simplicity and efficiency, barcodes are being used in a variety of contexts. In the event world, you’ll see barcodes included on everything from check-in to lead management. And, it doesn’t look as though they’ll be going away anytime soon.

Make Your Smart Phone Smarter and Your Exhibiting Experience Better with LeadPod™

Posted by Jarred Singer

Sep 8, 2016 8:09:57 AM

If you’re investing in exhibiting at an event, the people you meet - your new sales leads - justify your presence on-site. But, managing leads effectively, especially during the busy hours on the show floor, can be a challenge. The booth gets crowded, and attendees don’t have business cards on hand; before you know it, the show is over and you're stuck with an array of notes, pictures of badges, and confusion. Organizing and following up on new prospects can be a huge chore and we can’t always remember who we met, what we talked about, and what the next steps are. This is where LeadPod™ comes into play.

API: The Unsung Matchmaker of your Favorite Technologies

Posted by David Patricola

Jun 30, 2016 9:10:07 AM

Most people in today's day and age are familiar with the newest, most popular technologies. Although we are living in a technology world, not many individuals are familiar with the term "API". At Expo Logic, we like to think of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) as matchmakers. They help connect technologies and provide translation when the languages are different. For example, when you cut and paste from Microsoft Word into Microsoft Excel, it’s completely seamless to the user. But, behind the scenes, there’s an API making that transition possible. Or, how about when you’re looking for nearby restaurants and Yelp suggestions show up on a Google Map? That relationship between Yelp and Google is possible because of an API. Even buying movie tickets online utilizes an API to link ticket selection to credit card verification. When you think about it, it’s amazing how prolific APIs truly are.
