We live in a technological world where event planners must be following the top trends in the industry to stay relevant! Here are our personal favorites when it comes to adding a touch of tech to large scale events!
Isn’t it the best feeling when your carefully planned and marketed event is sold out? But what a shame to limit your reach to the physical constraint of your venue.
Why not incorporate live streaming? It’s a marvelous way to create extra content and buzz online during your event while eliminating downtime for your guests. For the unlucky few who couldn’t grab a ticket, fly to the venue or afford this year’s edition ticket!
This extra reach is also a golden opportunity for your sponsors – it adds visibility and creates shareable content that will live on once the event is finished.
For the content to be shareable and long-lived, we recommend you don’t go down the amateur route and make sure you have high-quality audio and video by investing in the proper equipment (and the proper crew!)
RFID tech is definitely one of the most talked-about event planning trends for 2018. From seamless access-control to cashless payment, this is one tech that allows event planners to generate more revenue while facilitating the process of on-boarding of guests. A win-win.
As a Montreal-based start-up, we do have a little bias toward a fellow Montrealer company Connect&Go
“Connect&GO provides revenue-generating solutions for the leisure, sports and entertainment industries. Our access control, cashless payment, and experiential innovations make it easier for guests to enjoy a frictionless experience they will want to re-live again and again!”
RFID also adds extra layers of security by easily allowing organizers to manage where guests are situated and permitted to be on site – plus the bracelet is a great branding opportunity (and a potential fun keepsake!)
We couldn’t talk about the must-have tech for your event without mentioning the perks of having a social wall!
There really isn’t a better way to optimize your digital signages on site. Social walls allow you to showcase on the forefront your social media content, promote time relevant offers, display live video content and much more.
They are easy to install, affordable and easy to monetize – plus, they allow your guests to participate and engage actively with you, your speakers and other attendees.
