How big a role does technology play in your conference or meeting: major, minor, do you even know?
In an age of virtual reality and QR code scanners some people still carry on with pen and paper willingly, but others are perhaps not aware of innovative products on offer that can help streamline their events.
However, technology is even more important today that ever before, and Park Crescent Conference Centre is keen to learn more about how it is perceived by inviting industry stakeholder to take a short survey.
Karen Bramley, conference manager at Park Crescent Conference Centre told CN: “Having recently invested in a technology upgrade, we are keen to see how the industry as a whole views the role of technology and how up to speed they think they are.”
Answering a question about why technology is important to the industry and why it shouldn’t be overlooked or underestimated, Bramley said: “There is an intriguing debate about how technology fits into the face to face world of conferences and meetings.
“Technology can be a good thing, but not for the sake of it. As with everything the product needs to be useful and should make delegates’ lives easier. Get this right and you’ve increased the engagement, reach, and longevity of your event.”
Bramley hopes that the survey will shed some light on how organisers react to different scenarios and that it “would be interesting to see if technology is as advanced as the industry feels it is.”
