Search by Furigana in Event Attendees and Speakers

  • iPad

Searching of Japanese names by furigana is supported for event attendee and speaker search. Lists of speakers and attendees are sorted by furigana so users can quickly find the Japanese names in the search results.

For example, Sara Jones searches for attendees for an upcoming Verteo Biopharma event. She enters the furigana for an attendee’s name in the Search field. The search results display all attendees that have matching furigana.
