EIBTM announces exciting lineup of technology and innovation knowledge sessions
All EIBTM attendees are invited to visit the Lecture Theatre every day at 1300 to get their daily dose of technology education at the EIBTM Tech Hour. Julius Solaris, Blogger, Author and Speaker; Event Manager Blog will kick off the first EIBTM Tech Hour with his session, “Register Them Like a Pro” which will take place on Tuesday, November 19.
Solaris commented: “Event registration is one of the most popular technologies with the industry. If you feel confused about what is available on the market and the costs involved, you are not alone. I will share the results of a research of 300 event registration providers and input from 200 event professionals, together with strategic advice on developing effective registration programs.”
Next up, Bo Kruger, Writer, Speaker and Meeting Designer from Moving Minds will deliver his session: “Is Technology Taking Over Our Meetings” on Wednesday, November 20.
Kruger will, controversially, assess the relationship between technology and meetings and the effect it has on participants’ engagement with one another. Kruger’s thought-provoking session will consider when and how technology can be used appropriately to add value to meetings and when it might be best not to use it at all.
The final Tech Hour: “The Top Twenty Tech Tools - selected for successful meetings,” delivered by Stefania Conti-Vecchi, Founder and CEO of EVENTagist is set to take place on Thursday, November 21.
Conti-Vecchi will explore and experiment with a selection of the most useful web tools and mobile applications, which will support attendees towards designing more effective meetings. The session will demonstrate the practical application of the “tech-toolbox” in the meeting environment. An emphasis on hands-on activities and the sharing of relevant strategies will be the hallmarks of this tech hour.
As part of the Technology and Innovation Knowledge Program there will also be a number of Bite-Sized education sessions that will be delivered inside the Innovation Zone at EIBTM this year.
Rosa Garriga Mora, Project Manager, EIBTM's Innovation Zone commented, “in this exciting area of the show floor visitors will find dozens of dynamic sessions on a wide range of topics around meeting design and the latest industry trends. Some of the highlights are case-study presentations from the winners of Best Event Awards, Eventex International Awards and Premios Eventoplus, as well as sessions on sensorial language, social media and big data, to name just a few.”
EIBTM 2013 will take place from November 19-21, a week earlier than in previous years. The EIBTM Forum will take place the day before the exhibition on November 18. Trade Visitor registration is now open and all meetings industry professionals are invited to register at www.eibtm.com/visit
