The Business Marketing Association B2 Awards Program Honors UBM Studios with an Award of Excellence for its Mobile Event Application

UBM Electronics' All-Access Conference Pass Application Provides a Digital Extension to Improve Event Attendees' Experiences During and After ARM TechCon™

Jun 5, 2012

CHICAGO and SAN FRANCISCO, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Studios, the global leader in digital events, environments and communities, today announced that it has been honored with an Award of Excellence for the UBM Electronics All-Access Conference Pass application for the ARM TechCon™ event in the Mobile Advertising - Mobile/SmartPhone App category.  The All-Access Conference Pass application is the electronics industry's first tablet application that provides a digital extension to improve attendees' event experiences.  The B2 Awards are an international business-to-business marketing and communications contest that recognizes excellence among top agencies and corporate marketers.   

The All-Access Conference Pass application was launched at the ARM TechCon Conference, which was held October 25-27, 2011 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.  The application allowed conference attendees to access all of the conference's interactive proceedings, including technical sessions as well as white papers, webinars, videos and collateral on a ViewSonic gTablet, an ARM Cortex™-A9 dual core tablet.  The ARM TechCon program included more than 85 sessions led by 102 industry experts, targeting electronic and computer designers to help them connect, learn and engage in next-generation ARM technology-based mobile and embedded technologies.   The application is platform agnostic and works on both tablet and desktop devices.

The technology offered an "Agenda" that allowed users to create a personal calendar for the event, to ensure that they did not miss any sessions critical to their design interests.  Also, the application provided an alert to remind attendees when sessions would be starting.  In addition, the application allowed users to find the content they were interested in viewing and add it to their "Briefcase" for review at their convenience on any device. 

"UBM Studios creates powerful and intuitive mobile solutions that assist event organizers in industries from electronics to healthcare to connect, educate and engage with audiences," said Kate Spellman, President, UBM Studios.  "We continue to see that these solutions enhance an attendee's experience and enable sponsors and exhibitors to get their messages to the right audience.  We are delighted to have received this honor from the Business Marketing Association."

"It's truly an honor to receive an Award of Excellence for the All-Access Pass," said Colin Holland, Content Director, UBM Electronics.   "We are constantly focused on creating an extraordinary experience for our event attendees.  The All-Access Pass allows us to offer a digital show guide, a conference bag, content management and networking tools in an offering that can be accessed anytime and at any place."

UBM Studios and UBM Electronics have also won a min's Best of the Web Award in the Tablet App -- Paid -- Interactive category and received third place in the Business Marketing Association of New York ACE award in the Mobile Marketing category for the All-Access Conference Pass application for ARM TechCon™.
