ZOOMtxt®, the leading self-service mobile marketing solution powered by KODIME, is the mobile tool of choice for Network World Events & Executive Forums, the organisers of DEMOfall 07 in San Diego, USA, an annual emerging technology fair for life-changing and groundbreaking innovations.

All conference attendees are actively encouraged to vote for their favourite exhibitor during the conference. Voting is based on SMS messaging to specific keywords, using a special shortcode number to provide instant calculation of votes and live monitoring. ZOOMtxt® also hosts a voting Web site enabling attendees to vote from kiosks and other Internet-enabled devices. All elements are managed directly from ZOOMtxt®’s intuitive Web-based interface and results are collated in real-time. Strict tracking ensures that attendees may only vote once, no matter which channel they use. The ultimate winner by combined votes will be awarded the prestigious ‘People’s Choice Award’.

Network World Events staff are also able to edit and add polling questions at any time to gather feedback on discussion topics arising during the course of the event.

Chris Shipley, DEMO Executive Producer, remarks, “The products and technologies being showcased at DEMOfall 07 highlight a magnificent change that blends and leverages distributed computing power with the social Web to fundamentally change information creation, access to knowledge and the power that comes with both. An important element of this change is the transition to a mobile lifestyle— so it’s a logical step for the conference organizers Network World to also actively embrace mobile.”

Nico Köpke, CEO of KODIME, the company developing and providing the ZOOMtxt® solution as a software service, comments, “We are seeing an increased use of mobile marketing technology for voting, news alerts, last minute ticket updates and location based information during live events. Mobile is the perfect digital channel for a scenario where all participants are essentially on the move, and we are delighted that Network World Events chose ZOOMtxt® for their event marketing needs.”
