Slido achieves record year with almost 6,000 events under its belt

BRATISLAVA – 27 January 2016 – Slido today announces that it has achieved a record year with almost 6,000 events using its audience interaction tool between January and December 2015.

Due to significant increase in demand, Slido strengthened its teams in London and Bratislava, in addition to establishing a new office in Kuala Lumpur, Malasia, to support its growing customer base in Asia.

Throughout 2015, more than 350,000 active users used the platform to ask over 200,000 questions and submit over half a million poll votes. From the SXSWedu Conference in Austin, Texas to the World Business Forum in New York City or the presidential debate in the Philippines, Slido helped to facilitate a wide range of events and conferences around the world in 2015 in almost 100 countries.

Slido CEO Peter Komornik comments: “2015 was a great year for Slido and saw us hit many significant milestones such as 1,000 events in one month, winning two prestigious industry awards and launching several important product innovations. We are very grateful to our customers for their trust and we stay committed to delivering the best possible user experience and support. We expect the growth to continue in 2016, as we plan to strengthen our USA presence in the coming months.”

Slido was recently awarded the Events Industry Supplier Of The Year at the PPA Connect 2015 Awards, adding to the company’s earlier success of being voted the Best Tech of the Year at Eventex 2015 for the second year in a row.
