What is Poken?

For the first time ever, EADV will be using Poken, a mobile app technology…

What is Poken?
Poken is your digital business card and digital briefcase that makes networking extremely fun and efficient. It is a small USB stick that allows you to collect the contact details of colleagues as well as digital documents with a simple touch. Every event participant will receive a Poken upon arrival.

How does it work?
Just touch one Poken to another person’s Poken and they glow: You’ve exchanged business cards. Touch a Poken to a Touchpoint, and you collect a document.

TOUCH IT:  Collect digital business cards by touching your Poken to those of other visitors, by placing the hands together palm-to-palm. Collect digital media from Touchpoints in the exhibition by touching them with your Poken in the same way. You’ll see the light glow green!

GET IT:  Plug your Poken into your computer’s USB port, log in with the credentials provided to you (you will receive an email), and press the sync button to see your new contacts and the digital media you’ve collected.

SHARE IT:  See all the business cards and documents you`ve collected in your account. Sync with Outlook, download to your computer, or view everything on your mobile phone.

WIN IT:  Participate in our challenge! The top 3 networkers and collectors will win back their registration fee! So start connecting!


What should I do now?
Visit to login to your account based on the details sent via email. Add your social networks and a picture, so people can easily remember you and find you. Take 50 seconds to watch the video on how you can most effectively use your Poken at the event.  When you log in, you’ll notice there is also a lot more useful information about the event you’re about to attend – go check it out!
How will Poken benefit my event experience?

  • Keeps you up to date with valuable event information even before you arrive. 
  • Allows you to network with Professionals in a fun and engaging way.
