DALLAS, 26 April 2012 – The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) and Core-apps, LLC., makers of “Follow Me” and “EventLink” the award winning mobile applications for the trade show and event industry, proudly announced today a new partnership.
Core-apps CEO Jay Tokosch stated, “We are very excited about this partnership, and being chosen by IAEE, the pinnacle of trade shows and education for our industry, as the official mobile app provider after an extensive RFP process against our competition, says a lot about our products and the confidence IAEE has in Core-apps. Three years ago, we were newcomers to this industry, and we were welcomed by IAEE from the start. In that short time frame, we have grown to over 500 shows and events globally, with small corporate and association conferences, to trade shows in excess of 150K attendees with over 2 million users annually with our app. This partnership with IAEE will be a great chance to showcase our technology, outstanding customer service and development of joint ideas for our industry, and we are glad they chose us to be a part of it.”
By working with Core-apps, IAEE is taking its mobile app offering to the next level for members and meeting attendees. Key information about IAEE’s programs, products and services are easily accessible which means attendees can quickly access the tools and information they need from their smartphones.
