Slido has announced that more than 20,000 events around the world used its Q&A and polling platform in 2016, more than triple the number of events that adopted the technology in 2015.
This significant increase in demand has resulted in Slido expanding its team from 15 employees to 50 across four continents in the last 12 months, in addition to establishing new offices in Asia and the US and continuing to strengthen its presence globally.
Throughout 2016 Slido has been adopted by a number of renowned events around the world in over 100 countries, including SXSWEdu, IMEX America and Adobe Summit EMEA in London and has worked with high-profile clients including BBC, Uber, AirBnB and The Economist.
Slido CEO Peter Komornik said: “It has been an incredible 12 months and we are excited to hit the 20,000 events milestone in 2016. We are grateful to all our clients for their support and trust. Growing the team by 35 new members and opening offices in the new regions allowed us to be even closer to our customers in our strive to deliver the best possible support.”
Slido achieved a number of accolades in 2016 and this week, for the second successive year, was awarded The Connects Event Tech of the Year at the PPA Connect Awards in London for its innovative product and exceptional customer support. In July 2016, Slido received the Conference Supplier of the Year award at the Conference Awards.
