The International Association of Conference Centres has done their research. They just released the top meetings tech trends for 2015. Some of the trends the IACC reveals are quite interesting and we thought we’d share them with you.
Be Mindful of Your Attendees
There’s a new generation of attendees at meetings. Your millennial members are addicted to social media and you can be sure that they will be expecting free and fast Wi-Fi at meetings and conferences! Make sure your meetings are programmed to keep your younger members engaged. Use social media and networking events to allows your millennial members to connect and interact with other attendees.
Personalize the Experience
Personalize the conference or meeting experience for your attendees! Establish location or itinerary-based alerts or notifications that can guide attendees to their next scheduled event, inform them of other attendees who are nearby, or provide useful information or assistance.
Wireless Charging Stations
According to the IACC, 2015 is the year the hospitality industry will begin to implement standardized wireless charging stations into bar tops, meeting room tables, and guest rooms. Ensuring the venue where your conference is hosted at provides this feature will make for happy attendees.
Virtual Colleagues and Apps
IACC also reveals the next tech trends that will appear are conference apps that connect to social media, allow communication between attendees, and provide other conference related information. Additionally, IACC believes conference venues will improve the meeting experience for virtual attendees as well.
