    FROM THE Fall 2016 ISSUE
     

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned trivia game, and SocialPoint is putting a twist on a classic activity and making it a great fit for meeting and event planners. SocialPoint Audience Engagement is a software platform that allows guests to interact using trivia games, photo sharing, polls, Twitter voting and much more. Recognized by IBTM World in Europe as one of the top 10 new innovations in the global events industry, the software keeps guests engaged and having fun.

“Meeting and event professionals are being asked to use event technology for audience engagement, but they are swamped and don’t have time to become technology experts,” says Samuel J. Smith, founder of SocialPoint. “We can help our clients pick the audience engagement solutions that best match the experience they want to create, their goals and budgets. Our interactive producers configure the software, brand it for the event and help set it up on-site. We can support events remotely to save event planners money, or provide full on-site service to give them peace of mind.”  

The Minneapolis Convention Center (MCC) Plaza has been awarded Silver certification under the Sustainable SITES Initiative rating system for achievement in landscape sustainability. The MCC Plaza is the nation’s first SITES-certified project to be located at a convention center and the first-ever SITES-certified project in the Upper Midwest. 

Administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), SITES promotes sustainable and resilient landscape development to enhance sustainability, implement green infrastructure strategies, and improve resilience.

 

The Roger Toussaint Award is the highest honor from the Minnesota Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus.
