Poken to deploy digital event technology at the United Nation’s Bonn Climate Change Conference

Poken, the 360º event platform, today announces that in partnership with Climeworks, it will deploy its digital event technology at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Bonn Climate Change Conference, taking place May 16 – 26 in Bonn, Germany.

UNFCCC hosts a series of conferences which have led to the Kyoto Protocol and most recently at the COP21, to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The Bonn Climate Change Conference will bring together over 2,500 delegates from countries around the world, to continue discussions on climate change initiatives and prepare for the COP22.

The UNFCCC has partnered with Poken, a leading global event technology supplier and Climeworks, a Swiss technology company that provides solutions for efficiently capturing CO2 out of ambient air, in order to improve the carbon footprint of the event.

The Poken technology will provide a digital handshake between UN delegates, exhibitors and other visitors and offer a platform for the digital exchange of documents and brochures helping exhibitors ‘go green’ by eliminating paper waste. All delegates will be provided with an interactive USB stick allowing them to collect documents by swiping their device on digital readers at each exhibitor booth and in a media collection area within the conference. The technology deployment is sponsored by Climeworks.

Zhanna Zhussupova, Associate Observer Organisations Liaison Officer at the UNFCCC says: “Using technology to enhance the green credentials of our event has been a priority. Poken’s leading-edge approach to conference document management, and its proven track record with other UN and UN-like organisations convinced us to implement its technology at our event.”

Stéphane Doutriaux, Founder & CEO of Poken, adds: “Our event technologies have been successfully deployed at a number of previous UN events including the Third Conference on Climate change and Development in Africa, in 2013 in Addis Ababa, the Conference of Ministers in 2014, in Abuja, Nigeria, the African Development Forum IX in Marrakech, Morocco, the Conference of Ministers in 2015, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the ICE Nairobi, in February 2016 and the CoM16 in Addis Ababa, March 2016.

“We are delighted that our technology tool set has been adopted so broadly, especially in the context of the UN’s efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of its events.”

Poken was awarded the Green Meeting Industry Council award as a green event technology supplier in 2015, by the Northern California chapter of the GMIC.
