From wearable technology to augmented reality, and from smart buildings to diagnostic tools that help make sense of vast new streams of data, the “Internet of things” (IOT) is transforming the way we plan, execute, measure and experience meetings and tradeshows.

Join Meetings Today and meetings industry tech guru Corbin Ball, who will turn his attention to one of the most revolutionary developments taking place around the world today. Ball will outline the latest products and current opportunities for venues, meeting planners and other suppliers, while also addressing the challenge to remain competitive over the coming decade as delegate expectations increase and as new developments disrupt current ways of doing business and managing events.

This session will provide practical advice on how to enhance your current business practices, as well as give you insights into the changes you’ll need to make in the near future to keep up with your competitors.

By attending this webinar, participants will:

  • Experience a range of IOT tools, including wearable and location-aware tools, beacon technology, virtual reality/augmented reality systems and much more
  • Learn best practices and case studies to get the most out of these tools
  • Receive apps, links and web tools you can use to harness the power of IOT

Earn CEUs: The Event Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Meeting or Event Design Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
