EventsAIR Earns Prestigious Industry Recognition
SEATTLE (May 7 2015) Centium Software today announced that EventsAIR® won the SIIA CODiE Award for Best Event Management Solution.
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), is the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries.
An SIIA CODiE Award win for Best Event Management Solution is an especially prestigious honor as each award winner was reviewed by a field of industry experts, whose evaluations determined finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the industry experts to select this year’s 28 CODiE Awards Winners.
EventsAIR was designed as an innovative solution to the challenges faced by meeting organizers. Created from the ground up as a cloud-based and highly-secure solution, EventsAIR utilizes intuitive workflows and tools to allow meeting organizers to work more efficiently at every step of the process.
EventsAIR allows meeting organizers to create registration pages and mobile apps for attendees in just a short amount of time utilizing state-of-the-art drag and drop technology. Powerful tools such as real-time run- sheets, mobile apps for attendees and organizers, and interactive agenda builders enhance the management experience for organizers.
Built to seamlessly integrate with the powerful Microsoft Azure platform, in an industry first, EventsAIR offers large event organizers the ability to instantly scale up their environment during peak event demand time.
In receiving the award, Centium CEO Trevor Gardiner acknowledged the significant and positive contribution by existing customers to the product evolution.
“When we first discussed developing EventsAIR, we knew we wanted to re-imagine how meeting organizers did their work,” Mr. Gardiner said. “We started with a blank sheet of paper, interviewed hundreds of our customers, and created a new productivity-driven approach and technology for today’s generation of meeting planners. This award is as much recognition of our customers’ support as it is of our team’s dedication to innovation.”
“Our entire team at Centium Software thanks the SIIA, members and the judges for this prestigious award,” Mr. Gardiner continued. “We are honored to receive the CODiE Award for EventsAIR, and are humbled to be included in the company of all the past and current CODiE winners.”

About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards
The SIIA CODiE™ Awards were established in 1986 by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work.
