After a partnership with ViridiSTOR LLC, the Lions Club International (LCI) was able to deliver its convention digitally on the Presenter USB held in Toronto, with more 16,000 delegates representing the 1.36 million members from more than 200 countries attending.
“We began working with the Lions several years back after meeting with them at the IAEE Expo!Expo! conference,” said Terry Mullin, CEO,ViridiSTOR. “From the start, their convention manager saw all of the values that our solution provides.”
“Lions Clubs International has many initiatives around the world involving sustainability and improving the environment,” stated Joe Preston, international president, Lions Club International. “Considering the tremendous amount of information that the USB potentially holds, by going paperless we avoid the printing, shipping and waste of paper. That, in turn, is better for the environment. It’s a win-win situation.”
The partnership allowed for the entire convention, including key information on the 11 divisions at LCI, seminar materials, training and initiative information and a variety of videos to be contained within the Presenter USB. Handout materials from all of the 60 exhibitors at the event were also paperless.
