Following on what appears to be stunning success within Malaysia, mobile event management app Konfx developed by home-grown company Gain Secure is now reaching out globally. Headed by Founder and CEO Walter Wong, Gain Secure has successfully developed and championed this platform that is the ideal partnership tool for conference organizers.

Konfx was designed to be a state-of-the-art event management solution that offers the perfect tools to help better manage conferences and events. It works by offering conference organizers direct input on conference parameters onto a single system.


This includes information on speakers, agendas, locations and other information. That information is then made available to attendees directly through the app. Attendees are also able to register for sessions and rate speakers or sessions. All data will be automatically compiled and made available in reports to the organizer.

“The management of conferences is something almost every company will face at one point or another so it’s logical that Konfx can gain traction overseas as well. We are at this point reaping the rewards of success in the local market as representatives of companies from around the globe encounter Konfx. They’ve tried it, they’ve liked it and they spread the news in their home countries,” said Walter Wong, Founder and CEO, Gain Secure.

And ‘liked it’ they apparently did, as the company has brought the app in to multiple overseas markets simultaneously.

Since it began rolling out, Gain Secure witnessed Konfx being accepted wholeheartedly among many event organisers and conference attendees. The app quickly became instantly recognisable as it empowered no less than 16 conferences since its inception.

To-date, Konfx has been deployed at five events around the world; Global Azure Bootcamp CDMX in Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico; Global Azure Bootcamp – RS at Porto Alegre, Brazil; ExpertsLive Australia 2017; United Kingdom based UC and Cloud Day 2017; Global Azure Bootcamp conference in Melbourne, Australia; and Colombo Global Azure Bootcamp in Sri Lanka.

Since Konfx has deployed on multiple continents, Gain Secure is now looking towards expand effort and outreach in these regions. This also includes gaining a foothold in North America, branching out into the European continent, and establishing a presence in Russia, Africa, as well as East and West Asia.

The strategic move to go global is timely for Gain Secure as it worked with partners at these conferences and has the right frame of understanding of what they require at these events. Paired with its Cloud-based capabilities, mobile services, and data collection and analysis offerings, Konfx is certainly suitable for any type of conference.

Thanks to expansive research into and feedback from the conference management community, Gain Secure can provide full customisation for the Konfx platform. By doing so the company streamlines the entire user experience for both management and attendees quickly and seamlessly. It can also be scaled to fit various event capacities and volume of content.

Moving forward, the Konfx platform will be expanding its features to include in-depth data analytics, more immersive user engagement and and better social media integration. This is in line with the global rollout plan that Gain Secure has in mind as the move will raise the functional value of the mobile app and management services.

“We want to do more for conference organizer both in Malaysia and around the world. The sky is the limit and we are set to raise the bar even further. With the improvements that have been recently introduced, Konfx is more than ready to take on the world,” added Wong.
