iBAHN, one of the leading global providers of broadband services to corporations, hotels and meetings venues, has aligned with VisionTree Software, Inc. to create unique turnkey event network software, allowing for real-time audience response during meetings.

Called VisionTree Conference Enterprise, the technology uses iBAHN's secure, reliable network and gives meeting and event owners the ability to create more effective interactive and productive experiences for attendees, no matter what meeting size.

'With VisionTree Software's audience response applications and iBAHN's secure, reliable network, we are addressing the needs of the meetings industry and improving event communication and attendee satisfaction,' said Martin Pellinat, CEO of VisionTree Software.

Conference participants can use their own Internet-enabled handheld devices and laptop computers, or they can be provided with wireless personal digital assistants (PDAs) loaded with the Conference Enterprise software.  The software allows panelists to present information, gain immediate audience feedback through custom surveys and free-text input, and collaborate in real time while gathering relevant data.  The software can then present the data to the audience in the form of graphs and charts for immediate analysis.

'VisionTree turns the traditional one-way conference session into a truly two-way interactive session that increases audience participation and collaboration, enhancing the value for the conference presenters, audience members and hosts,' said Ron Cornell, director of World Congress, a corporation dedicated to healthcare research and the hosting of related global forums, and which utilizes Conference Enterprise at its worldwide events.

The development of this audience response solution fortifies the commitment iBAHN and VisionTree share of creating and providing secure, cutting-edge technology solutions and transforming the meetings industry.

'By hosting the VisionTree Conference Enterprise on iBAHN's protected, reliable broadband network, participants are ensured an interactive experience that is uninterrupted and secure,' said Paul Sullivan, managing director of iBAHN's Enterprise Conference Solutions, a division of iBAHN that specially caters to the needs of the meetings industry. 'Participants needn't worry about privacy, as their data will be kept safe by iBAHN's end-to-end patented security.'
