Audience interaction specialist Slido is celebrating passing a significant milestone, with 12,000 events using its Q&A and polling platform.

Since the company formed in May 2012, almost half a million questions have been asked and one million poll votes have been sent across almost 100 countries.

Slido CEO Peter Komornik (pictured) said: “Clients are at the centre of everything we do and we are very grateful to them for their trust. Growing our team internationally allows us to be close to our clients and deliver the best possible user experience and support. In our fifth year of existence, we plan to strengthen our position in the key markets in Europe and USA.”

The increased international presence has allowed Slido to work closely with a number of renowned conferences including SXSWedu in Austin, Texas, Adobe Summit EMEA in London, Founders Forum in Paris and Exclusively Corporate at IMEX as well as new clients such as BBC, The Economist, Barclays, UBER and Airbnb.
