About Conteo

Conteo is a revolutionary digital platform designed to enhance the trade fair experience for both organizers and exhibitors. With a keen focus on fostering meaningful online experiences, Conteo is designed to help organizers gain additional revenue by providing an intuitive and engaging platform for exhibitors.

Conteo is built on five primary components that blend seamlessly to create a comprehensive trade fair ecosystem:

1. Event Platform

Allows exhibitors to showcase the contents of their booth in advance, thus creating anticipation and excitement for the event.

2. Community Platform

Provides a space for visitors and exhibitors to interact throughout the year, fostering a sense of community and ongoing engagement.

3. Posts

The basic units of content. Exhibitors can purchase credits to create these posts, which can then be used to highlight their offerings or share exciting news. To help exhibitors create and maintain these posts, Conteo offers the fourth component.

4. Conteo Publisher

A user-friendly publishing software designed specifically for exhibitors.

Lastly, the Conteo Content Services team of experienced content supervisors ensures that all posts are created on time and meet quality standards, offering peace of mind for organizers and exhibitors alike.

What makes Conteo stand out?

In the crowded field of digital event platforms, Conteo stands out for a number of reasons.

The platform's focus on curated posts instead of traditional exhibitor directories allows exhibitors to share their stories and exhibits through engaging posts, complete with text, pictures, and videos. This feature not only makes it easier for visitors to conduct their online research, but also drives more people to the event.

Conteo leverages complex algorithms and technology to provide an intuitive and personalized user experience, ensuring that visitors see content that is interesting and relevant to them.

Moreover, Conteo is a proven solution, having been successfully used at a large number of trade fairs. Organizers benefit from Conteo's low-risk and cost-effective solution, which also offers additional revenue streams, such as selling post credits to exhibitors.

Conteo is committed to continuous development based on user feedback, positioning itself as a future-proof partner rather than just a service provider.

The Goal

In a world where finding top-notch tech talent is a real challenge, Conteo found themselves in a hiring predicament two years ago.

With a pressing need for a skilled Symfony Developer, they turned to TieTalent, and little did they know that this collaboration would be a game-changer.

The hiring manager's goal was crystal clear – to find an exceptional Symfony Developer who could take their team to new heights.

But it wasn't just about technical expertise.

Conteo, being a close-knit company of around 10–12 individuals, needed someone who would fit like a missing puzzle piece, aligning perfectly with their company culture and values.

The team at Conteo was over the moon with the results, and they knew they had found a winning formula. But the collaboration didn't stop there.
