Intuitive Workflow for Self-Service Customers and Powerful New Features for Attendee Engagement

Pleasanton, CA — June 13, 2016 — 6Connex, Inc., the leader in virtual events and environments, today announced the release of version 7.10 of the Virtual Destination platform, a significant step forward in the delivery of innovative and engaging virtual event programs.

The most significant enhancement is Virtual Builder, a streamlined and intuitive process for managing all aspects of virtual rooms, including templates, content and extras like badge swipes, information cards and offline notifications. Self-service customers will save time with the new workflow, while gaining more control and more flexibility within their environments.

In addition, numerous feature enhancements are designed to drive increased engagement between attendees and virtual event/environment representatives.

  • A new profile status will help all attendees to better manage when and who they connect with for 1:1 and small group conversations.
  • Room rep notifications such as a live doorbell and offline emails ensure they won’t miss new attendees who enter their room or booth.
  • Badge swipes throughout any room or space will capture attendee interest with real-time notifications to event staff, ensuring immediate follow up.
