Quirk’s is excited to introduce smart badges from Klik!

Sponsorship packages are available. Contact Steve for more information!

These interactive badges allow for easy and fast networking all in one place. Attendees in close proximity can quickly exchange information simply by both pressing and holding down the bottom of the badge. Bright LEDs will illuminate and flash, letting you know that the information has been exchanged. Attendees can also receive content from speaking sessions without having to wait until after the event. During a session, simply click your badge and any materials the presenters make available will download and be accessible in the app. The Klik badge puts you in charge of the content you receive and connections you make!

With the Klik app you can:

  • Chat with other attendees and even request meetings
  • View profiles of exhibiting firms and request meeting times with particular vendors
  • Store your connections and event materials
  • Keep track of all personal meetings and events
