  • What are Beacons?

    Beacons are a low-cost piece of hardware – small enough to attach to a wall or under a table top – that use a battery-friendly, low-energy Bluetooth to broadcast in-app messages or push notifications to smartphones and tablets. They are more accurate than GPS and hence perfectly suited for indoor location tracking.

  • SETUP & IMPLEMENTATION

  • What’s involved in the setup process?

    If you’re a DIY person we’ll configure and ship the Beacons to you a few days before your big event including a complete set of instructions on deploying them. However, if you’d rather not take on the extra stress, we also offer a full-service solution where our Experts configure, setup and deploy the Beacons on-site. We will even on-board your content if you’d like us to. That way you can focus on things that matter the most while we take care of the technology.

    Do Beacons need to be plugged in?

    No. Beacons feature a built-in battery that lasts for 4+ years. We use Beacons from a company called Estimote, a leading innovator and manufacturer of Beacons.

    I am expecting 12,653 Attendees. Can you handle that? And, how many Beacons will I need?

    Yes. And, with room leftover for walk-ins! The number of Beacons that you’ll need is based on the size of your venue, the layout, number of sessions, what you want to measure and a few other factors. Although the number of attendees does play a role in this equation, our experts can help evaluate and determine the right number to use for your event or conference.

    Do I get to keep the data that we collect?

    Yes! We’ll retain your event data at no cost for a period of 2 years from the date of your event. You have the option to pay us a small fee to retain it beyond that. Or, you may download all the raw event data at any time.
