HiNZ 2016 (Health Informatics NZ)


Abstract Management, Event App, Event registration, Integration, Live streaming, Webcasting

For the second year running, we worked with HiNZ to pull together all of our event technologies for an event combining four conferences. Technologies included…

  • Event Website
  • Event Registration (with payment gateway)
  • Abstract Management
  • Event Networking & Gaming App
  • Exhibitor Lead Management App
  • Onsite App Helpdesk
  • Secure Live & On Demand Webcasting via member & delegate login
  • Tracking & reporting
