Sessionboard, a speaker and content management system, and Freeman, the global leader in events, today announced a strategic partnership to provide Freeman customers with enhanced speaker and content management support.
Sessionboard, a SaaS solution, reduces the time event organizers spend on managing speakers and sessions, and helps streamline the distribution and organization of the content. With the new offering through Freeman, conference organizers will have a robust set of pre-planning tools for easily defining agendas, scoring speaker proposals, and managing communication with speakers. Applications include: call for papers, awards, applications and surveys, abstract evaluation, agenda management, speaker onboarding & communication.
When integrated with Freeman’s existing event management solutions, like Freeman’s Presentation Management, event organizers will have a seamless, end-to-end event approach for speaker management. And through the partnership, Freeman customers continue to benefit from 95-years of event management expertise integrated with efficiency of a robust digital management platform.
“Speakers and content are some of the most critical components to a successful event,” said Chris Carver, Co-Founder and CEO, Sessionboard. “We’ve made it our mission to focus on innovating in this area, while integrating and partnering with the best organizations and solutions in the industry, so it’s an honor that Freeman would choose us as their preferred speaker and abstract management partner.”
“By partnering with Sessionboard, we are excited to expand our speaker management capabilities,” said Paul Fletcher, Freeman’s Executive Vice President, Audio Visual & Event Technology Operations. “Partnerships like this one will allow us to provide a complete solution for event content and speaker presentation management — from the first call for papers all the way to the stage. And as we add Sessionboard capabilities to our offering, our customers can expect the same outstanding event management expertise from a single team and contract.”
“Working with Freeman is a huge validator of our commitment and focus to helping organizers with such a critical aspect of their events. This partnership will bring more exposure to this technology to organizers, saving them hundreds of hours per event, increasing their ROI and driving engagement throughout the year,” said Carver.
Sessionboard is a next generation speaker & content management platform that simplifies the complex workflows and disjointed communications that exist around speaker and content management.
