Highlights of the ASTD International Conference and Expo 2012

Recently, I had the opportunity to be part of the Harbinger Team that exhibited at the ASTD International Conference and Expo in Denver, Colorado from May 6-9, 2012. The expo hall was brightly lit and abuzz with nearly 400 vendors ready to discuss their services and products to the 5000 expected attendees.

From the Right: Amit Kaveeshwar, Seema Chaudhary & Jamaica BrackenAmit Kaveeshwar, AVP – Business Development, Seema Chaudhary, President of Harbinger Knowledge Products and myself were excited and ready to showcase our cutting edge innovative products - Raptivity, YawnBuster and YawnBuster Connect. We talked with many people, shared samples, gave out CDs for trial of these software’s and were able to gather great insights into what companies are looking with regards to the training, eLearning and mLearning software’s.

Mobile learning and HTML5 were very hot topics which made a perfect venue to announce the release of Standard Pack 4, our recent edition to the Raptivity repertoire of packs! The news of 50+ HTML5 output enabled template s was met with enthusiasm and also great appreciation for Raptivity rising to the challenge and meeting the demands of our customers and the ever-changing market. Several customers stopped by just to say ‘Hi’ ASTD 2012and share their experience of using Raptivity. It was very exciting to hear a customer ‘recommending’ Raptivity to a booth visitor who hadn’t heard much about Raptivity before. The customer’s enthusiasm and real life experiences surely helped make a lasting and favorable impression with the visitor.

Raptivity, along with YawnBuster, definitely made a positive impression on every person who stopped by to talk and learn more. Overall, it was a great conference week and one I was honored to have been a part of.
