Events aren’t just about creating a branded experience for guests, or conveying a message for clients, guests, and CEOs anymore. Increasingly, attendees and clients alike want ways to better engage, better connect, and measurably impact and be impacted by those events they are a part of. Technology continues to prove itself as the way to do all of those things, but frankly- it’s confusing. From apps that help you calculate how much food to have for your guests, to unique ways to disseminate information, to tools that make it possible to connect your guests with your client’s true message, the 21st century event is getting more connected, more plugged in, and more technological. Event professionals are expected to understand and execute theor clients’ events by capitalizing on the latest and greatest tools, but who’s showing us what’s best?  In this high energy and engaging session, we’ll discuss some of the hottest trends in event technology and how they’re shaping the event experience. A hands-on presentation, this session is all about preparing you to deliver an exceptional experience to your clients by embracing the technology that is continually evolving around us. We’ll show how old school tools are meeting new school technology and creating epic experiences for guests, and memorable moments for clients.

Register by February 16, 2015.
