2018 is all about having the best event tech. But what does “best” mean? And best for whom?
Some event tech works behind the scenes and primarily serves event organizers. Geofencing, RFID, and other technologies can provide vast amounts of powerful, real-time information while unburdening event organizers of certain responsibilities and reducing necessary manpower to corral attendees or answer questions. Implementing modern technologies like these can consequently enable event organizers to accommodate larger crowds and, ultimately, make their event more successful.
Other technologies are more “in your face.” These are the ones meant to impress attendees and make their lives easier. On-site badge printing services, for instance, can create a seamless check-in experience and help to get attendees in the door faster. Social media screens posted immediately inside the entrance and throughout an exhibit hall can increase attendee engagement. Even basic technology like sound systems can be improved upon to get messages through to audience members more effectively.
Ultimately, no matter what technology your event is using, it is always worthwhile to look up what improvements and advances have become available. Less work for you and a better experience for your attendees are the results that you’re after, so do some research and make those results a reality!
