President & Founder
Arnie Roberts, the president and founder of SMART-reg International, Inc. is at heart a tech guy. But he is also a brilliant problem solver, taking the latest technology to help show organizers save money, improve processes and offer better customer service.
When you add his 40+ years of experience in the trade show and meetings industry to his extensive knowledge of the registration process, WEB/mobile based solutions, and innovative technologies like NFC/RFID, the end result has been many innovations for organizers of trade shows, conferences and special events — and numerous awards.
Some of his registration, attendee interaction, and lead capture products: It’s All in the Badge™; SMART-Connect Facebook Share Station and Photo Spots; SMS and database interaction enabling Text-2-Win™ Scavenger/Treasure Hunts; attendee surveys and evaluations; and innovative ways to use NFC-enabled SmartPhones for lead capture — to name a few.
Sometimes quirky and always unconventional, Arnie Roberts is described as one of the most innovative minds in the trade show industry.
Executive Vice President
Despina was SMART-reg International’s first employee and has worked in all capacities ranging from business development to marketing to project management to logistics planning to onsite registration guru. This coupled with her 20 years of experience in the trade show environment, gives her the one-of-a-kind and sometimes uncanny understanding of all the underpinings required to execute a flawless registration process.
Despina’s genuine desire for each client’s success and her hands-on approach provides a positive work environment that creates a team that is unified and proud of the accomplishments.
