Guests and visitors at the Zhuhai International Convention & Exhibition Center (CEC) will no longer have to rely on paper maps and publicity material to get around. Agreement was reached with Microsoft Office 365 on Aug 14 to supply a new product that combines audio guides, introduction texts, real pictures, and sharing functions.
These functions are integrated by a Little Program that runs smoothly on the WeChat mobile app and enables users to place audio notes on document files.
CEC, in Shizimen Central Business District of Hengqin New Area, is the first offline site to use the Microsoft China product.
The QR code of the program will be displayed in the lobby and on service counters, front desks, and 35 electronic screens at the major Zhuhai MICE facility. Scanning the QR code leads directly to a reading interface, where viewers can give audio-visual texts likes, share them with other WeChat groups, and download them to their phone.

Office 365 is a line of subscription services offered by Microsoft. Based on joint cloud service, it is the same as Microsoft Office but designed for easier communication and collaboration by allowing anywhere-access to Office tools and applications.
Thanks to the rapid development of big data and cloud computing, CEC is able to bring guests convenience and interactive experiences. More technologies will be introduced to make its services even more intelligent, said a CEC manager.
