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

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the constant upgrades, innovations, and transformations in event technology. But just because it’s new and cool, doesn’t mean it’s right for your event. So how do you weed out which programs and platforms can help enhance your experiences? Joe Schwinger, C.E.O. of MeetingPlay is here to help. 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.
