AVW-TELAV partners with MULTILEARNING Group to make ePosters available to a broader Canadian market

By ePosters, Hot Technology, News, Press Releases

Montreal, QC… AVW-TELAV has entered into an exclusive Canadian partnership agreement with MULTILEARNING Group Inc. to extend the accessibility of Electronic Posters (ePosters) to the entire meetings and conventions industry.

In addition to being more environmentally friendly than traditional paper poster sessions, ePosters take up less space and are digitally enhanced for users to conveniently view and analyze relevant information in one location. Viewers can zoom in to an ePoster to better read content and even scan a QR code to view the poster later on a mobile device. Moreover, ePosters are especially useful in aiding presentations to a larger audience.

“Poster sessions are prevalent at scientific conferences and medical congresses, and this cutting-edge interactive display solution will undoubtedly totally replace the traditional poster board presentations,” explained Derek Anderson, Director of Digital Services, AVW-TELAV. “By integrating this forward-looking solution with our range of offerings while it’s still unconventional in the broader marketplace, AVW-TELAV further demonstrates its commitment to industry leadership and advancement, and introducing progressive technology solutions to the masses.”

MULTILEARNING Group is the most advanced entity in the field of innovative educational tools. Its ePoster solution, MULTIEPOSTER, outperforms that of its competitors and is the leading ePoster solution for medical associations worldwide. The MULTIEPOSTER offering aligns perfectly with AVW-TELAV’s core business solutions.

“Our main focus at the MULTILEARNING Group is to establish ways to enhance digital educational environments,” said Joel-Zvi Chetzroni, CEO of the MULTILEARNING Group and architect of this new format of ePosters. “We are proud to say that we have successfully reproduced all scientific exchanges related to scientific posters at congresses within this green digital era that we are implementing with AVW-TELAV on the Canadian market.”

The MULTILEARNING Group Inc. is a Canadian based company of 40+ employees created in 2000. It serves 100+ organizations worldwide with its 100% in-house developed line of State-of-the-Art online educational tools including: eLearning Activity Platforms made for the delivery of Online Certification, Curriculum & Accreditation; the spectacular “TALKS on the GO” iPad/iPhone & Android smartphones & tablets Webcast App; MULTIEPOSTER, the world’s first auto-zoom ePoster solution and MULTIEPORTAL, the world’s most advanced personalized eLearning Portal Platform for medical associations.
