  • CadmiumCD: A Deeper Dive into the Winter 2017 Infographic

In our Winter 2017 issues, we’re featuring the tech companies that were part of the 2016 ibtm America TechCollective in partnership with DAHLIA+. Because we can only fit so much in print, we decided to post an extended interview with Michael Doane, marketing manager, CadmiumCD.

What are some of CadmiumCD’s outstanding features for meeting/event planners?

CadmiumCD was founded in 2000 by husband-wife team Peter and Michelle Wyatt. They were conference attendees bringing home big binders of content (aka Conference Proceedings) and thought there must be a better way to distribute abstracts, presentation slides and speaker bios. They began collecting the data for meeting planners and compiling it digitally on CD. Flash forward to today and CadmiumCD now offers a software platform that allows meeting planners to collect and review submissions, manage speakers and exhibitors, organize conference details and distribute content to attendees via apps and websites.

Do you have any numbers/figures/percentages you can share related to the technology that would interest planners?

CadmiumCD's eventScribe app is great for both attendee networking and educational activities at conferences. It is also consistently rated an average of four to five stars by attendees in the app store. Highlights [of two recent client meetings] include 18,437 personal meetings created among 10,938 users at NAFSA, and 2.4 million slide downloads with more than 25,000 notes taken among 1,931 mobile users at APIC. We also find that most users download and install the app on one-and-a-half to three devices per person on average.

Set 27 stories above Chicago’s iconic theWit hotel, ROOF on theWit is paying tribute to Andy Warhol’s 1980 ad campaign for Absolut Vodka at Chicago’s original rooftop. What better way to celebrate than with a specialty cocktail; the ROOF is offering guests its very own crafted Absolut Warhol. The drink combines Absolut Elyx, Strawberry-Infused Bergamot Liqueur, St. Germain and House Lemon Sour, along with a lemon peel garnish as a nod to Andy’s blonde bangs.

 

If you’re looking for something to do to get you in the holiday spirit, look no further than The Westin Austin Downtown’s annual life-size themed gingerbread house.  

 

This holiday, the Emerald City will be sparkling like never before. For both locals and visitors, many Seattle hotels will be offering an array of promotions and packages that showcase the best the city has to offer.
