Announcing High Attendance

Greetings and thanks for reading. I’m Christopher Justice, Chief Executive Officer of High Attendance. You may have noticed a few changes to our website and our brands for Leading Reach, Captix, EyeFrame or Overpass.

Earlier this year, we acquired Captix for Enterprise Event Management and Overpass for Attendee Identity and united them with EyeFrame under the new High Attendance brand.

We made these investments to help complete the vision we trademarked in 2007, to be the Digital Experience Platform for Event Marketers. Specifically, we will introduce an updated suite of products in June with some welcome surprises for anyone exhibiting or planning events.

INTRODUCING OUR UPDATED BRAND

The High Attendance Platform has (incorporates) all of the features of the current products and quite a bit more. We are passing this value to our customers and every feature is driven by their goals. In short, we have a proven platform that will further allow you to build, engage and retain audience for small and large events.

Here is a quick summary of what we have for you:

Serve More, Be More

High Attendance provides support for the enterprise any events, ranging from exhibiting (exhibitions), executive briefings, roadshows, user groups and corporate events. We have simplified the process for organizing large numbers of events and have direct integration to all leading CRM and marketing automation tools, HubSpot, Marketo, Elqoua (mention Salesforce?)and more.

Integrated Events Management

There will never be a single event management platform for large enterprises, that’s fine. High Attendance allows you to import from any event platform and provide a single, global management, budgeting and procurement process for exhibits and corporate events. High Attendance is a single source of your world wide events, regardless of which event management tools you might use.

Badge Scanning Returns

Leading Reach and EyeFrame were the first apps in the Apple Store to support hundreds of badge types, meaning you have one app for all your event and never rent a lead scanner again. High Attendance has a new app (available on iOS and Android) that includes support for over 160+ lead retrieval vendors including Experient, ExpoLogic, iLeads, XPressLeads, Compusystems and more. We can’t say that you should never buy lead retrieval at your events, but we want to so we are making it more universal (but we want to make sure you always have an alternative/another option). 

Overpass, Overpriced

Overpass has a huge following of users because it eliminates the need for lead retrieval at events. In addition to badge scanning, we will now support electronic business card scanning too! does not work so We have a team of real humans who can transcribe any card and return your essential lead information within 24 hours. transcribe all the essential printed and written information on each business card. All Eyeframe customers are entitled to use Overpass at no cost. We will also introduce new pricing that is 1/10 the cost of the current model (seems to contradict the no cost part in the last sentence).

Unlimited is Essential

High Attendance is based on a completely unlimited model for all event registration, ticketing, badge printing, users, training, digital signage and lead retrieval features, most importantly no fees per event or per attendee. Simple is better, cheaper and effortless for our customers and for us.

Call us at  1-800-216-0816 or email us at ask@highattendance.com, 24 hours a day(, seven days a week, we’ll be standing by to help with you event setup) and we’ll get your events, kiosks and badge scanning setup for you. Our values are our business and we love what we do.

Thanks.

6 Tips for Winter Wellness for Event Managers

6 Tips for Winter Wellness – Event Managers, We Are Looking Out For You!

The hardest part of event season is ending.  You’re ready to pack up your laptop, briefcase, planner, cell phone and tablet (not to mention all the swag you picked up at the trade show) and head home for some turkey.  Unfortunately, everyone around you is coming down with a case of the sniffles and, chances are, you’ll be breathing in recycled air on the plane ride home.

But don’t fret! Here are six simple tips to keep you well this winter, designed especially for the event folks out there who are still working hard and starting to feel the chill.Don't blame coughs on colds right away. Allergies may be the culprit.During the spring and summer, people spend more time outside breathing in pollen, so it’s easier to blame our sneezes on allergies. In the winter, we don’t think to consider allergies as the source of our ailments because it’s also cold and flu season.  However, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 1 in 5 people have indoor allergies, which can actually be worse in the winter. If you know you’re allergy prone, don’t skip your daily Zyrtec© just because it’s snowy outside. 3Germs thrive in Airplane seat pockets. The American Society for Microbiology says that “disease-causing bacteria can linger on surfaces commonly found in airplane cabins for days, even up to a week”. Specifically, their study showed that MRSA lasts longest (up to 168 hours) on seat-back pockets and E. Coli lasts longest (up to 96 hours) on armrests. If you stick some hand sanitizer in your bag before you board the plane, and avoid touching the pockets, you will have a much lower risk of picking up a sickness on your flight. 4Eating fiber-rich foods can strengthen your immune system and help keep you healthy during colder months. Breakfast is a great time to fill up on fiber with oats or bran. Snacking on nuts throughout your busy day will also help keep your fiber levels up.

5Layers will keep you warm while you’re outside (or if you find that your booth is under the icy air conditioning unit). They’re also great because you can shed them as soon as you get inside, or pile them on as you head to happy hour after the show is over. Be sure to remember your jacket!

6Ramping up the heat inside is tempting as the temperatures start to fall outside but using your heater too much will negatively impact your health. Typical home and office heaters suck moisture out of the air, leading to worsened allergies, dry skin and general discomfort.Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 4.48.08 PM

Stress and anxiety negatively impact the immune system. Mayo Clinic research indicates that people who work under constantly stressful conditions may have over-stimulated “fight-or-flight” responses.  According to the study, “long-term activation of the stress-response system… can disrupt almost all your body’s processes.” Whenever possible, take a breather – not doing so puts you at risk of developing anxiety, digestive problems, sleep problems, weight gain and memory loss.
