How Alexa and Siri Have Changed How We Need To Communicate with Attendees
Chuck Elias, C.E.O. and Co-Founder, Eventbots by Sciensio
Virtual assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home have changed the way we consume and process information. Rather than reading the entirety of an email or diving deep into a website for research, we are often likely to ask a question and have these tech tools tell us the answer. In this session, Chuck Elias of Eventbots by Sciensio will explore how easy-to-use and intuitive technologies are transforming the event landscape. Elias will share the evolution of technology, the new customer service, alternative ways to communicate with and engage attendees, and the future of the industry.
2:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Next Level Event Tech Trends
Joe Schwinger, C.E.O., MeetingPlay

From matchmaking to AR, R.F.I.D. to facial recognition, listen as he shares secrets to finding the perfect event tech mix. Uncover what’s new and what’s next, trends in the industry, and how you can take advantage of new technology to meet, and exceed, your event goals.
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Design is Dead, Let's Talk Live Experiences
Aaron Kaufman, CSEP, President, Fifth Element Group
The structure of events has evolved, and design has taken a back seat to the overall experience. It’s no longer about florals on every table or bows on every chair, event professionals must create their events as a holistic experience, keeping the attendees (and their bottom line) in mind. Listen as Aaron Kaufman, CSEP, President of Fifth Element Group, shares how to get the results you need from your live experiences. Learn fresh ways to avoid the same old gatherings, what your C.M.O. is really looking for, R.O.I. vs. R.O.O., and what truly guests crave when they attend your event.
