How the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) upgraded to Swapcard to keep attendees connected and their information secure

workshops and sessions

The challenges of the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC)

How to unite their event community
FIC's previous event app was outdated, offered few features and didn't encourage networking and communication.
Ensuring sensitive information is secure
FIC needed to be sure they were working with a product that wouldn't jeopardize security, and that would comply with data regulations.
Meet the right person thanks to AI
Thanks to Swapcard's Artificial Intelligence, exhibitors were able to make connections with people who were of interest to them, and thus save time.

An intuitive and secure app to harmonize the event ecosystem

Sponsors, exhibitors, attendees and organizers; when there are thousands of participants at an event, how do you keep everyone connected and engaged? The International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) had to upgrade from their previous event app and choose a more intuitive solution.

The event needed an app to help participants organize their time and make sure attendees were meeting the right people. They also needed a tool that was secure, a pillar component of their event. With Swapcard, FIC found a solution that checked all the boxes.

Our challenge overall was how to communicate to our 380 partners... but also to animate the entire ecosystem. Our audience is very tech-savvy.

The platform helped us a lot! It acts like a personal assistant in an application. It allowed us to connect with our prospects, our customers, in a very friendly, efficient and fast way.

We discovered Swapcard via other events including VivaTech and Eurosatory and at other shows related to security and defense. It was also very intuitive, so it seemed to us like a pretty obvious choice.

Swapcard helped us by making it possible to organize meetings ahead of time with leads and make us aware of our clients who would be at the forum, so we could also book meetings with them.
