Ongoing Activities & Events – Available in Booth 1143 any time during exhibit hall hours

  • Visit our interactive exhibit and answer the question - What does success look like to you? Our goal for 2020 and beyond is to make sure we’re doing everything we can to help you achieve success.  All attendees are invited to share their answers and see what others have posted.  We can’t wait to hear what success looks like to you!
  • Get Insight into your data. New to HI-IQ, we’ve introduced an integrated business intelligence module to provide faster, more meaningful access to the data collected in HI-IQ.  The new module will be released free of charge to all HI-IQ IRIS users later this quarter.   It will provide data visualization (think: charts and graphs) designed to highlight trends and outliers, illustrating information crucial to managing an IR practice. 
    Each visualization offers drill-down capabilities, letting users dig into the detail of the data driving their business.  Unlike the reports already available in HI-IQ, these new visualizations can be filtered and grouped on-the-fly, with no need to reset parameters and re-run reports.  Customized visualizations can be created and saved in a library for easy access at a later date.  Stop by for a demo.
  • Make memories with a backdrop of the Seattle skyline.  We’ve specially designed a selfie-station so you can get social and ham it up with your colleagues.  Stop by, take a snap and help us make sure #SIR20SEA is trending now.  We’ll have a Polaroid-type printer available so you can kick-it old school and print out your pics photo booth-style.
