Slido hits 50,000 events as it celebrates fifth anniversary

Audience interaction company Slido has celebrated its fifth birthday with the announcement that the award-winning Q&A and live polling platform has been used at over 50,000 events since its foundation.

Established in mid-2012, over 1.5m questions and over 5m poll votes have been sent through the platform.

Since surpassing the 3,000-event mark during the first three years, it is now helping more than 1,000 events each week improve audience interaction.

The growing appeal of Slido’s audience interaction platform – including the recently-announced Switcher – has seen it adopted by renowned conferences such as SXSW, World Economic Forum and World Business Forum as well as a wide range of high profile corporate clients including Netflix, Adobe, Lufthansa, Volkswagen, Cisco and KPMG.

This has been accompanied by a significant internal growth. Slido expanded its initial team of three co-founders to over 70 people in the last five years, as it continues to transform audience interaction worldwide. With thousands of customers in over 100 countries, Slido has grown its global reach, building a local presence in key cities such as London, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Singapore and Sydney.

Peter Komornik, Slido CEO, says: “It’s been an incredible five years for Slido and I’m very proud of the team for achieving this milestone. We’re all grateful to our clients for giving us the chance to push the boundaries of audience interaction together.

“We are delighted to contribute to the shift in the role that the audience now plays, with one-way presentations fast becoming a thing of the past. With the right mix of technology and meeting design, speakers can now adopt a truly conversational style and create a much richer learning experience for their audience.

“We can’t wait to see what the next five years will bring and we promise to keep exploring how technology can further enhance the overall event experience for our customers and their attendees,” he adds.
