Conference Currents


Conference Currents helps good ideas bubble to the surface and gives attention to the people sharing them. It helps you discover what others find interesting, and browse through ideas and people by topic.

The system will be connected to your SOCAP Pathable profile. At the end of the conference you’ll receive a digital transcript of all of your activity to help you follow up with your most inspiring connections.

It’s über simple:

1. Fill

a Conference Currents entry card to record your connections, the ideas shared, and how much you liked them. Cards are uploaded throughout the conference and ratings are displayed on each attendees Pathable Profile.

2. Follow

the Conference Currents Real-Time Tag Cloud, Tag Feed and the conference-wide activity stream on the “Happening Now” page. They provide real-time data of the ideas and people that are getting the most attention for innovation, feasibility, and impact at SoCap. Watch as the value of the event grows!

3. Recieve

a transcript of all your connections at the end of the event. It will include their ratings & tags along with follow up information connected to attendee’s Pathable accounts.

We need your feedback!

Why Conference Currents?

While a conference acts as a marketplace of ideas, deep value resides in the connections, idea development, insights, innovation, and projects you encounter.

This value often disappears when we leave the event because we don’t make it more tangible then a stack of business cards that quickly lose their context. Conference Currents provides tracking and coherence for these “intangible” value streams, enabling you to maximize the real wealth of the conference experience.

How it works.

Conference Currents brings attention to the ideas and innovators that attract attendees.

It uses simple score-cards to track participants, their ideas, and ratings of those ideas based on innovation, impact, and feasibility. Each card placed in the online database accumulates to display real-time flows of reputation, participation, and ideas visible in the conference setting. People who get the best feedback and attract the most attention get an opportunity to showcase their ideas at the end of the event. These are the people we know you want to hear more from! Everyone using Conference Currents also gets a transcript of their connections and ratings which are linked to Pathable profiles for easy follow up post-conference.
