Twickenham Experience has launched a series of educational events for meeting and event planners, Twickenham Talks.
The inaugural event, which takes place on 9 May, Twickenham Talks: Google Glass, is being organised in partnership with audience interaction specialist sli.do and will focus on Google Glass and its impact on audience interaction.
The breakfast event takes place in Twickenham’s Live Room tiered auditorium and will showcase sli.do for Google Glass, what claims to be the first Google Glass app for event moderators.
The invitation-only session will be attended by corporate and agency event organisers who will be given the opportunity to get hands-on with Google Glass to facilitate a practical discussion around its impact on events and audience interaction.
“We are delighted to announce that we can now extend our app offering to Google Glass,” says CEO of sli.do, Peter Komornik. “There’s been a lot of talk and speculation in the industry about how Google Glass can be used and what sort of impact it will have on events. With this roundtable we’re giving a selection of planners the opportunity to come and experience the technology up close and discuss the possibilities with their peers and experts.
Komornik added that Twickenham Stadium’s dedicated 100Mb bandwidth and high specification technological facilities were an apt setting to showcase sli.do for Google Glass for the first time in the UK.
Samme Allen, Head of Conference and Events Sales at the venue, says: “Technology has become a fundamental element to successful events these days and it’s essential that we keep abreast of the latest developments.
“We are looking forward to developing the Twickenham Talks series to create a forum for discussion and learning, helping clients to be at the top of their game when it comes to best practice.”
The second Twickenham Talks session, focusing on leadership and change management, will be unveiled soon.
