Event Solutions Spotlight Awards announces Silke Fleischer as a finalist in the category of Rising Star, Female, for supporting sustainable meeting practices via the paperless conference app, EventPilot

Santa Rosa, Calif. – January 28, 2014 Silke Fleischer has been named finalist in the Event Solutions Spotlight Awards 2014 – Rising Star, Female category. Silke is the co-founder of ATIV, publisher of the advanced EventPilot conference app, which combines sustainability with organizational solutions for event planners.

“I’m honored to learn that I’ve been selected as a finalist,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “My career has always involved attending large conferences in both a speaker and attendee capacity. I was concerned with the quantity of paper used and inevitably wasted at these events. Today’s powerful mobile devices helped me, along with my co-founder, Eric Converse, to launch the EventPilot paperless app and help make a difference in our industry.”

EventPilot is the powerful mobile meeting app which provides a green alternative to the traditional bulky paper guide that is typically outdated the moment it is printed for an event. The app provides benefits that cannot be accomplished with paper such as a personal schedule builder, interactive event program with powerful offline search, animated venue maps, digital contact sharing, instant email reports of all key learnings, bookmarks, and more.

Silke dedicates much of her time to educating organizations on the benefits of sustainable meetings, and not just to the environment – to their bottom line, too. Silke created a free CO2 calculator, which clients can use to estimate the carbon and cost savings made from implementing the EventPilot paperless meeting app. Silke provides associations with solutions that save them time in developing their conference program, dramatically reduce their need for printing, and increase revenue opportunities through sponsorship options.

Silke’s green initiative for ATIV was not only to create the EventPilot paperless app, but to establish a sustainable work environment. ATIV Software has a very small environmental footprint since there are no offices and employees can work from anywhere in the world, taking advantage of cloud computing and eliminating their commute.

The EventPilot multi-language app is available natively for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets, and Kindle Fire (web version available for all other devices).

EventPilot mobile conference app features include:

Go Green
The paperless app easily handles large amounts of conference material giving users quick access to meeting information, even when offline. Content update works seamlessly throughout the event removing the requirement to print meeting handouts.

Innovative Revenue Options
Customized advertising packages are offered in a variety of screen views and updated in real-time allowing changes at any point.

Offline Access
Attendees have quick access to their personal schedule and session information even when WiFi is unavailable with EventPilot’s unmatched offline capability.
