Social Registration Tool Increases Networking Value for Visitors and Exhibitors

The Emergency Services Show is using the GleanIn social registration tool to harness the power of social media and maximise the networking opportunities for visitors and exhibitors before, during and after the event that takes place at the NEC on 23 and 24 September 2015.

Visitors registering for The Emergency Services Show are encouraged to do so using their Linked In, Twitter and Facebook profiles. In doing so they can see which people and companies from their networks will be also attending the event. Visitors registering in advance can also see, search and connect with other visitors to ensure maximum value from their visit.

GleanIn also offers unique insights to the show's exhibitors as it enables companies and their individual staff to see whom from their own networks has registered to attend.

The GleanIn Social Registration tool also makes it easy for visitors and exhibiting staff to share their attendance with their social networks and invite along others they want to see at the event.

“Networking across all the emergency services has always been at the heart of the success of The Emergency Services Show. A high proportion of our visitors, exhibitors and speakers are actively engaged in social media,â€' said event director David Brown. “By adding GleanIn to our registration process we have been able to enhance the ability of all participants to connect before, during and after the event.â€'

“The Emergency Services Show's active use of social media makes it an ideal candidate to be one of the many events to adopt GleanInâ€' added Tamar Beck, CEO at GleanIn. “Our social registration tool adds to the show's ability to connect people from across the emergency services and is creating new networking opportunities for visitors and exhibitors alike.â€'

Now in its tenth successful year, The Emergency Services Show brings together everyone involved in the emergency services – from the strategic planners and first responders, to the manufacturers and suppliers of equipment and services. Visitors can see over 400 companies and organisations supplying emergency equipment and solutions and can also attend free workshops, seminars and live demonstrations.
