Issuer Direct Expands Platform id. Offering with New Conference Management Module

A Powerful Event Management Tool to Maximize Networking at Investor Conferences

MORRISVILLE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / October 24, 2018 / Issuer Direct Corporation (NYSE American: ISDR), an industry-leading communications and compliance company, today announced the launch and commercial availability of its cloud-based investor conference management module for Professional Conference Organizers (PCO). Through the easy-to-use, yet robust interface, presenting companies can extend their relationships from the conference organizers event to qualified investors both onsite and remote.

Expanding Platform id. to the PCO will strengthen Issuer Direct's relationships within the industry.

Additionally, the module extends to a native mobile application to ensure day-of-event information and alerts are delivered with ease.
