Event technology innovators Glisser and ShowGizmo partner in ANZ region

Glisser's slide sharing and audience interaction to be included in ShowGizmo event app


Glisser, the audience engagement and event analytics platform, and ShowGizmo, the event app provider, today announced their formal partnership in the ANZ region.

Glisser, based in London, UK, and New York City, USA, and ShowGizmo, based in Auckland, NZ, and Sydney, Australia will work in partnership to provide world-class event engagement solutions and local support within Australia and New Zealand.

ShowGizmo will offer the Glisser product as a stand-alone audience response system, and incorporated into its own native event app. This provides clients in the region with a full range of features – including live presentation slide sharing, audience Q&A, instant polling, and social media feeds – to suit a range of requirements and budgets. Additionally, ShowGizmo teams will be available to support local timezones and to be onsite, should clients require a fully managed solution.

Mike Piddock, Glisser’s Founder and CEO commented, “As the local provider, ShowGizmo offer excellent understanding of the needs of event planners in Australia and New Zealand. They’ve spent many years building strong relationships based around expertise and trust. It’s great that they have selected Glisser to complement their existing products, and to provide a solution to those clients that do not need a full-blown event app.”

“We believe local knowledgeable partners, with talented people and established client relationships, are the best way to reach and support our increasingly multi-national client base. It’s great to have David and the ShowGizmo team on board.”

David Chaulk, ShowGizmo’s CEO commented, “We love the Glisser product and people and we’re very happy to be working with them. We view it as a complementary product and we believe it will significantly increase the number of conversations we can have with prospective clients. Everyone wins as a result of this relationship  – especially event planners.”
