The UK’s largest full-service event technology company, Crystal Interactive, has strengthened its partnership with Slido, the live Q&A and polling platform for meetings and events, to provide pre-event advice on meeting design and onsite services to ensure maximum audience engagement. Slido can be accessed on any mobile device and allows event organisers to crowdsource top questions for Q&A sessions and get instant feedback via live polls.

Chris Elmitt, Managing Director at Crystal Interactive Chris Elmitt, Managing Director at Crystal Interactive said, “Since its launch in 2012, Slido has become the industry standard in Q&A and polling for live events, with widespread use at corporate and commercial conferences, as well as association, not-for-profit and academic meetings.  If you have used one piece of meeting technology on your own device in the last two years, it was most likely Slido.

“Whilst the Slido platform is typically designed as a self-service tool, some event planners prefer support in implementing a greater level of audience engagement.  This is where the features of Slido and the advice and service capabilities of Crystal Interactive really complement one another. With Crystal Interactive and Slido, event organisers can be safe in the knowledge that the technology and infrastructure are in the hands of experienced professionals, to ensure a smooth and memorable delegate experience.”

The collaboration will allow Crystal to enhance the service Slido provides in many ways, including advising whether venue Wi-Fi is suitable to deliver a seamless event, providing meeting design expertise to clients new to Q&A and polling technology and helping them to build this into their agendas.

Peter Krajnak, Slido UK Country Director said, “In partnering with Crystal Interactive we are able to offer our clients in the UK a vastly enhanced support offering. Crystal’s long-standing industry experience in audience engagement technology, together with their expertise, ensures that our clients are in the very best hands. In an industry where the stakes of the meeting are incredibly high and impactful to our clients’ reputations, Crystal Interactive provides faultless support to not only deliver but also to maximise outcomes.”
