Unisfair, the leading provider of virtual events, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AO Global 250 Winners. Unisfair was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and other industry experts spanning the globe, based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Unisfair and the AlwaysOn Global 250 Top Private Companies will be honored at the AlwaysOn & STVP Summit at Stanford scheduled to occur July 22-24, 2008 at Stanford University. This two-and-a-half day executive event highlights the significant economic, political and commercial trends disrupting the global technology industries and features the most innovative companies, eminent technologists, influential investors and journalists in keynote presentations, panel debates and private company CEO showcases.
"The AO Global 250 winners have excelled in key strategic areas in the global technology markets," said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. "We congratulate them for their success in introducing new tools, services, and platforms that are driving the next phase of innovation and creating real value at an economically uncertain time."
Unisfair, which includes Cisco, KPMG and IBM among its customers, has achieved significant momentum in the virtual events space. Demand for the company's technology solutions grew substantially in 2007 as the number of virtual events hosted by Unisfair customers grew 350 percent. Enterprises have seen significant return on investment by leveraging Unisfair's virtual demand generation and virtual recruiting solutions.
"It is an incredible honor to be recognized as an AO Global 250 company," said Guy Piekarz, CEO of Unisfair. "This is a testament to both the Unisfair team which developed the virtual event platform and to our clients/partners that have hosted over 500 virtual events already."
