Regional event is the first of its kind and follows the success of the global virtual conference in March
Alexandria, VA (June 4, 2020) — Advanced Solutions International (ASI), a leading global provider of software and services for associations and non-profits, announced today it held the first iNNOVATIONS LIVE Asia-Pacific virtual conference for partners and clients on May 27-28, 2020. This regional event follows the incredibly successful March 25-26 global iNNOVATIONS conference that shifted from an in-person conference in Orlando, Florida, to online amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Hosted by Paul Ramsbottom, Managing Director of ASI Asia-Pacific, and Colin Bryant, ASI Asia-Pacific Country Manager, the two-day conference offered nine educational presentations on the latest advances in the iMIS Cloud Engagement Management System with live Q & A. It also included an inspiring opening session, award presentations, and a virtual networking happy hour at the end of the first day. Attendees were able to take advantage of the ASI Connect mobile app to access the agenda, conference materials, forums, and engage with other participants.
"Each year, ASI holds the iNNOVATIONS conference in the United States, which has meant very few clients in our region have attended the event before," said Mr. Ramsbottom. "With iNNOVATIONS LIVE Asia-Pacific, the iMIS community in our region got to experience the magic of the event for the first time. Attendees came from across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore and they were thrilled to be able to ask their questions of international experts and get answers in real time," he added. "This live access to knowledge and resources — and the chance to really feel a part of the event — was huge and we're already being asked about next year!"
ASI's in-person iNNOVATIONS conference was originally planned with three educational tracks but was reduced to one for the virtual event; all planned presentations, however, were recorded and made available via the on-demand video library. Hosted by ASI partner Webcastcloud, an Australian webcast streaming and hosting service, this library allows attendees unlimited access to all 36 conference sessions.
ASI was pleased to welcome members of NiUG Asia Pacific, the local independent user group dedicated to ensuring organizations that use iMIS maximize their investment in both the technology and staff they employ to administer and utilize it.
