May the Tech be With You: How to Talk With Your AV and Tech Partners

Date: Thu, August 25
Time: 9:10 AM - 9:50 AM

Technology has the potential to make our events better, but poor execution can only serve to add major frustrations - misinformed venues and attendees who feel like they were left out of the loop. In this session we’ll discuss getting to the “why” of the technology you want to use, how to set goals and allocate resources for it, plus building effective communication strategies surrounding the technology that keeps you, your vendors, and your attendees all on the same page. The best technology implementations start with clear communication!

Learner Objectives: As a result of the session, the learner will be able to:

  • Appropriately choose solutions and allocate resources to meet technology goals.
  • Create an effective communication strategy for discussing event technology needs with vendors and venues.
  • Develop a concise communication strategy for fostering event technology adoption among attendees.
