Free Data Capture

The MTA, as organisers of MACH 2018 recognise the importance of data capture for our exhibitors so for 2018 we are giving every exhibitor a chance to access the new system Free of Charge.

You download the free app onto your own smart phone or tablet, you can then use the device to scan visitor badges, add notes or qualify the leads. Post-event you can log into the online system and download the leads to follow-up.



Everybody! - it is free, easy to use and effective


Get set up in advance; you can create custom lead qualifying questions to help you qualify quickly and accurately

Make notes live; you can add information to individual leads, voice memos and pictures so record the information safely in the app and don't risk it on a stray sticky note!

Get stuck? Get Help! We will have staff available onsite to visit you on your stand and provide support, don't let a problem stop you using a valuable tool when our MACH geniuses can get you up and running.




Poken - Interactive Touchpoints

Brand new for MACH 2018 is Poken - as an exhibitor you can upload content to these small wireless boxes which visitors can then collect using their badges. Visitors who interact with a Poken device are recorded so you can download the leads and follow-up post event.


Please watch this short video to see how visitors can interacts with the touchpoints:


Still confused? Don't worry; there is a Webinar by Poken to explain exactly how it all works.


Your Poken is multi purpose;

  • Busy stands - get visitors to record their interest and request a follow-up so you never miss a lead!
  • Multiple products - get multiple devices so your client can download targeted information.
  • Heavy brochure - make it downloadable so your clients don't have to carry it!


Think about placement; remember your Poken point needs accessible to a badge hanging around someone's neck - make sure it is placed at a comfortable height as test it out yourself

Be Visible; your Poken point needs to be obvious - design frames or boards into your stand design to ensure visitors can spot them and be clear on the information which is available.
