QR Codes For Your Conference
Attendee Interactive now offers conference planners the ability to utilize QR codes for their conference. A QR code generator is now included in our Abstract, Exhibitor and Speaker modules. By incorporating QR codes within your conference, your attendees will have a more interactive experience. For example, if your conference offers scientific posters you can add QR codes and attendees will be able to easily download an electronic version of the traditional poster directly to their devices.

Definition of a QR Code
The meeting and events industry is beginning to see more and more QR Codes (or Quick Response 'Barcodes') at conferences. QR Codes are a relatively new, automated, digital way to give and receive information. At a conference, they are used to give information about a company website, an abstract submission, a speaker's presentation, education session handouts, or an exhibitors booth giveaway.
Attendees will need a SmartPhone or iPad2 to access them, with a QR Code Reader Application, such as Google Goggles (Android) or NeoReader (iPhone). Once the free app is downloaded, attendees simply hold up their device point it at the QR Code and the information will be displayed on their phone.
QR Codes provide attendees a quick and easy way to access conference information without having to write it down on paper (which usually gets lost), type it into their cell phone notes (which they promptly forget about), or carry around bags of paper handouts (which get thrown in the trash).
