Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Today the Virtual Edge Institute(VEI), an organization dedicated to advancing the development and adoption of digital event and meeting technology, launched the Virtual Edge Directory. Independently compiled, the Virtual Edge Directory is the virtual meeting and event industry’s definitive “digital yellow pages,” listing technology, solution and service providers for digital meetings, events, learning, and community.
“We recognized that as virtual meetings and events were becoming more mainstream, marketers and event professionals were struggling to keep up with the increasing number of technology vendors and solution providers within the industry,” said Michael Doyle, executive director of VEI. “Encompassing solution providers and vendors from A to Z, the Virtual Edge Directory eases the process for researching, identifying and selecting the right resource for a virtual engagement.”
Digital Yellow Pages for the Meetings, Events and Learning/Training With more than 400 company listings under 20 categories, the Virtual Edge Directory is the most comprehensive online directory for digital meetings, events, learning, and community solutions. “Mobile is the largest category by a long shot as most applications and platform include a mobile offering,” explained Doyle. “We cover all aspects of technology that people are using for events marketing collaboration and learning from telepresence to registration technology. Considering the size of the market we serve, it’s not surprising to have over 400 technology-related entries.”
Each company profile includes the company description, video, social media stream, logos and website embedded on the page. The directory is designed to help marketers and event professionals to easily locate and source technology and services providers for planning, designing, and producing digital event and meeting extensions and virtual environment programs. It’s also a great tool for finding marketing assets for the listed companies.
