What is PosterBridge?

Modified on Sun, 27 Nov 2022 at 11:59 AM


At in-person conferences, a poster presenter naturally cannot be in front of their poster during the entire conference. So how do interested attendees connect with the presenter? Organizers or presenters have used envelopes or fishbowls to collect attendees' business cards so the presenter can follow up after the event to share additional details about their poster.

The EventPilot PosterBridge module brings this very same idea into the app - whether your event is in-person, fully virtual, or hybrid!

Onsite Events

EventPilot generates QR codes you can print on Avery label stickers and affix on the individual posters. Attendees use the native iOS or Android EventPilot app to scan the QR code in order to leave their contact information with the poster presenter.

Virtual Events

Instead of a QR code, a media item allows attendees to get in touch with poster presenters directly. Depending on your particular setup, poster presenters receive either an email directly with questions from the attendee or can download a list of names and emails to follow up with. 

From the session detail view, attendees can click a graphic banner or link with icon. You can design the banner or icon so it matches your overall branding. 

After clicking, attendees will see a confirmation that their contact info has been submitted to the presenter.

Presenter Experience

Presenters can download the list of names and email addresses that have been submitted for their presentation session. 

When the presenter clicks the info request button, the presenter will see an option to download a contacts list in form of a CSV file. This file is formatted so it can easily be imported into any email or contact management program.
