Founders, Tom Phipps and Max Beech, will be keynote speakers at Venturefest South 2019. In addition, their QR tech is being built into every stand which will allow every exhibiting business to have a profile on their platform - that's over 100 businesses!

Each exhibitor will be given a card with a unique QR (barcode) which links through to an “Intro” profile for that business which will compile all the information they want to share with attendees, (e.g. social links, website), as well as including information about what they're looking to get out of the Venturefest event.


Intro is an app-based platform that uses ultrasonic wireless tech to radically improve the way companies engage with customers in a physical space, exchange information, and convert their physical relationships to digital.
