On the 30th of June and 1st of July, we were exhibiting at the European Business Summit in Brussels. We stayed until the end on the last day and witnessed the waste of paper. Here are some pics we took to show you there IS A BIG PROBLEM on those events that we can fix !
Please stop wasting paper ! Help us save the trees !
On the 7th of July, 600 Getyoo Clickeys were given to all participants to the opening ceremony of the Belgian Presidency of the Competitiveness Council (Research) happening at the Bourse / Beurs in Brussels.
The ceremony was organized by Benoît Cerexhe, the Belgian Minister of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region, responsible for the Economy, Employment, Scientific Research and Foreign Trade, by Sabine Laruelle, Minister for SMEs, the Self-Employed, Agriculture and Scientific Policy and by RIB, Research in Brussels.
The Clickeys had a great success as everyone was wearing one. We constructed a “Getyoo Wall of Fame” for the occasion comprising 24 tags that people could click in order to get links to the main scientific and research organizations in Belgium as well as links to digital arts organizations and pdf’s publications related to science, innovation and research.
There were also digital arts installations showing the latest innovations in the field. Participants had the occasion to click on descriptive sheets placed next to each installation in order to pick up more information about the artist and the installation. The artist themselves could also click the people who were interested into their artwork so they could follow the discussion later and easily find each other’s contact details.
The event was a great success with many many clicks !

Getyoo Tags & Clickeys at Sirris Innovate 2010
Last Friday (4th of June), we were present at the Sirris Innovate 2010 event to offer the Getyoo solution. During the day participants could attend 3 inspirational sessions. Expert speakers from Procter & Gamble, Materialise, KULeuven, Umicore, Creax and Inno.com shared their vision and experience on these current technology themes - Digital factory, Open incubation and Software innovation.
Each of the 100 participants received a Clickey at the entrance that allowed them to click other people in order to exchange digital business cards. We also placed 25 posters containing tags that people could click to get digital information about companies, presentations and Sirris activities (pdf’s, videos or links to websites).
At the end of the day, we calculated a total 1095 clicks for 538 business cards exchanges and 557 media picked up which means people clicked on average 5,38 people and selected 5,57 media. If those media had been paper catalogues we would have saved approximately 100 kilos and 25 grams of paper!
The event was a real success, we had a lot of positive feedback and people were really happy to be able to select only the media they wanted instead of having to carry a bag full of documents!
