Summary
How would you like all the headlines from news about and around your event gathered in one place? PressDoc launches a digital press room for events and tradeshows, called OpenPressRoom. A single point of entry for journalists and bloggers attending the event. All event related news of partners, exhibitors and sponsors can be found here and is updated in real time. A paperless, more efficient and more beautiful solution for event organizers, its' exhibitors, sponsors and attending journalists.
Events and tradeshows are known places for product launches and new announcements, but often the distribution of press releases is still time consuming and inefficient. With an OpenPressRoom an organizer can create and manage its digital press room within minutes. It has never been easier to create a professional solution to distribute news during events.

Dennis van der Vliet, lead developer at PressDoc explains: "OpenPressRooms help all parties involved. The journalists and bloggers have a one-stop-shop to get their stories, exhibitors and sponsors can easily reach all journalist and bloggers that are attending the event and the organization saves precious time and gets more coverage about their event, its exhibitors and sponsors."

Zee Kane, CEO of The Next Web blog and events explains the use of OpenPressRooms for events from a different perspective: "We had three editors at IBC, and the organization bluntly gave all contact info, including cell phone numbers of the press to each exhibitor. Our editors got over a hundred calls and could hardly get their work done. OpenPressRooms from PressDoc solves this problem. Now, we are able to cover more than we did and we don't have to change phone numbers after each big event anymore."

An OpenPressRoom requires no technical skills and has a free version and a paid version for 22,50 EUR per month.
