Company's second regional event included attendees from North America and the United Kingdom
Alexandria, VA (July 2, 2020) — Advanced Solutions International (ASI), a leading global provider of software and services for associations and non-profits, announced today it held the third iNNOVATIONS LIVE virtual conference on June 24-25 — this time for nearly 90 Canadian and UK clients and partners. This regional event follows the March 25-26 global iNNOVATIONS conference that shifted from an in-person conference in Florida to online amid the COVID-19 crisis and the Asia-Pacific event on May 27-28.
Hosted by Edward Wendling, ASI's Global Vice President of Marketing, the two-day conference was an opportunity for clients and partners in Canada to participate in an iNNOVATIONS LIVE event. Clients in the United Kingdom were also invited to join and some US clients who had missed the global event in March also participated. Those with an active iMIS Learning Subscription (ILS) were able to attend the event at no-cost.
The virtual event offered nine educational presentations on the latest advances in the iMIS Cloud Engagement Management System with live Q & A for the online audience. 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, and forums, as well as engage with other participants.
"More than 600 clients, partners and other members of the iMIS community attended our three iNNOVATIONS LIVE events. Of those attendees, 325 were clients — up from just 55 at our 2019 event in Florida," said Mr. Wendling. "We're delighted that so many were able to participate, get real-time answers to their questions, hear directly from our experts, and have some fun networking with their peers without having to travel. It's a new day; like many organizations, we'll probably never revert to an exclusively in-person event again, but hope to hold a hybrid conference in 2021."
