The twiGIS application with intuitive interface, developed in-house by Arkance Systems, is used for management of exhibitions.
The origins of the first digital data are associated with the 1990s, i.e. with the onset of information technologies and the entrance of a foreign company. At that time, the first data digitization of the site was introduced (creation of a building inventory, basic mapping of utilities). This is also related to the need to implement tools for data display (site management, technical department, site service, business department) and data connection to other company systems. Already at this time, the first GIS system built on top of Autodesk Map Guide and AutoCAD Map products was implemented.
In 2013, the GIS system was updated and the then-current Autodesk products AutoCAD Map 3D and Infrastructure Map Server were implemented. The next breakthrough in technology came in 2017 with the implementation of the twiGIS L web-based responsive application by CAD Studio (now Arkance Systems).
The switch to twiGIS was related to the development termination of the Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server web client. At the same time, there was a request to implement a modern client that would meet the current requirements for map applications. In parallel, the new application had to include a solution for working with exhibition areas for individual events held at the exhibition centre.
BVV decided to implement the twiGIS L application, which contains the main features in an intuitive and user-friendly interface that resembles public mapping applications. The application can also be fully used on mobile devices with touch controls.
The most important benefit for users is quick search for necessary information in the context of the area map. Graphical (map) and selected descriptive data are available in one web window.
The solution contains graphic and descriptive (alphanumeric) documentation of the site, buildings, floors, rooms, utilities and other related areas.

"With twiGIS I was pleasantly surprised how naturally most users have mastered the application. After the first introduction, they have already discovered other features intuitively on their own."
The deployment of twiGIS included the development of a special module for displaying data from Fair Designer, which is used to design exhibition layouts. The module in twiGIS displays the current occupancy of a specific exhibition in a unified web environment.
This part of the application is mainly used by the sales department, which needs to get up-to-date information and reports on space occupancy.
The managed data is also used as a basis for the ibvv.cz web application and the BVV Trade Fairs mobile application, in which visitors can search for information about exhibitors and view booth locations on a map of the venue.
Information on exhibition areas and booths for a specific event is quickly available
Showing booths in the context of a technical map (connection to exhibitors' utility networks)
Displaying the possibility of placing and selling advertisements on the area
Making use of data for exhibition visitors
