Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
MarketArt announced today that it has signed a multi-year event marketing agreement with Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) to provide its You Are Here interactive directory system at the organization's international conferences. The 2009 BIO International Convention, the largest biotechnology event in the world, will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The conference attracts over 20,000 attendees and 2,200 exhibitors. Tradeshow Week cited the convention as the 2008 Top Association Show and included the event on its Fastest 50 list for the second consecutive year.
The You Are Here system will be deployed on 15 touch-screen stations distributed throughout the show floor. The system helps attendees find their way to the companies, products and services of highest interest to them, and enables exhibitors to extend their reach, promote their offerings and attract qualified traffic to their booths.
"After experimenting with other electronic directories in the past, we chose the You Are Here solution based on its extraordinary usage numbers and overall attendee and exhibitor satisfaction demonstrated at other shows employing the system," explained Chris Galione, Senior Sales Executive at BIO. "Last year's results proved we made the right decision. Our goal is to make our convention's networking and partnering opportunities as cutting-edge, exciting and productive as possible for our attendees, exhibitors and members."
