Event Sponsors:

Crystal Interactive is a digital business founded with a simple goal – to stimulate collaboration and engagement at events using technology.

We have supported over 5,000 events for many of the world’s largest and most successful organisations including IKEA, Novo Nordisk, Unilever, BT, Deloitte, Old Mutual and many more.

In 2011, we embarked on an ambitious overhaul of our event technology to give us a world-leading live event app platform which works across mobile, tablet and desktop. Our conference app is designed and evolves based on our unparalleled experience in deploying technology at live events but also in close consultation with our clients.

We have been working with Axiom for 15 years delivering event technology to improve collaboration, engagement and teamwork at live events.


Axiom Communications is a specialist internal communication agency that helps UK and multinational companies engage and motivate their people.

We use many approaches to do this, including:

Big Pictures - we create a visual analogy for the journey the organisation has embarked on. It exploits the power of images and storytelling to make the strategy convincing and meaningful.

Conferences and events - we help our clients to create high-energy, interactive conferences, town halls and events that inspire participants to think, feel and behave differently long after we’ve turned the lights off at the venue.

Meeting and event facilitation - we provide facilitation with expertise in corporate and interpersonal communication combined with a high-energy, high-impact facilitation style.

Skills development - the best way to influence and engage employees is via managers and leaders, but only if they have the right skills; we train managers and leaders to help them communicate with verve.

Communications solutions - we design and deliver communication solutions from printed literature to intranet content, videos, podcasts and cutting-edge digital solutions.

And for almost 15 years, Axiom has been working with Crystal Interactive technology to foster collaboration, innovation and teamwork among audiences at conferences and other events.

Placing the user (your employees) at the heart of everything we do, we combine strategic brand thinking with new technology to create communications that delight and engage.

From London’s Cycle Brand of the Year to the World’s Most Respected Management Consultancy we help businesses of all kinds build stronger brands – from the inside out.



SnapComms was formed in 2007 to address the issue of information overload in the corporate environment. They develop and market employee communications software which allows large organisations to communicate more effectively with staff by delivering important company messages directly onto their devices (PCs, MACs, smart phones and tablets). A key feature of the solution is it bypasses email and guarantees delivery of the message.

Options include employee and device targeting, unread message display recurrence and escalation options.  Messages are measureable in terms of their delivery and readership.

SnapComms’ headquarters are in Auckland with 28 staff members. SnapComms also has offices in the UK and USA.
