RocketPlace, the premier conference for new eBay sellers and PowerSellers, will be using nTAG's interactive, wireless devices rather than traditional paper badges at their September 2008 event at The Rio in Las Vegas. nTAG makes meeting, connecting with, and sharing contact details with speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, and other attendees much easier.

The nTAG badge is a wireless device with a small touch screen. nTAG makes networking easier through icebreaker and matchmaking capabilities that help connect you with the people you wanted to meet and should be meeting. RocketPlace attendees can control everything from their own login on the nTAG portal website. Here, they will be able to view and export information about all of the people with whom they exchanged electronic business cards.

nTAG also allows the audience to interact with live sessions through polling. The presenter can ask a multiple choice question, which will show up on the presentation screen. The attendee can vote using the nTAG device they are wearing, the selections are tallied in real time, and the results are shown immediately on the presentation screen.

The September 2008 RocketPlace event is the second time that As Was, eBay's first Certified Service Provider, is producing the conference. "We understood that one of the main reasons someone attends a conference is for the networking opportunities," explains As Was CEO Debbie Levitt. "The RocketPlace event is aimed at connecting new and veteran eBay sellers with great information as well as each other. nTAG is the perfect solution to make our event more interactive."

Levitt continued, "Of all the events thrown by eBay, eBay's third party providers, and trade associations of eBay sellers, this is the first eBay-related event to use the nTAG system. We look forward to a more interactive event as well as a greener event; using nTAG means we don't have to give out disposable badge cards or plastic badge holders."

RocketPlace has one track for beginners looking for the road map for eBay business success. A second track is for PowerSellers looking for tips on how to grow with all of eBay's recent changes as well as how to use the latest techniques, strategies, and tools to improve their eBay businesses.
