Talking points: Ask the audience - interactive conferencing ready to make its mark

20 February· 2 Comments ·

Our series of talking points gives leading industry figures the chance to discuss the issues that affect them, and invites readers to comment. This week Steve Bindley, director of Media 1 Productions, talks about how new technological developments are shaping the impact and effectiveness of events.

The conference and events industry is constantly evolving as new technology changes the opportunities open to us. Over the years we have seen presentation technology evolve on all fronts – from 35mm slides to computer-based PowerPoint presentations, from video tapes to digital video solutions – and it is vital that we maximise the impact of this progress.

As event producers, we are expected to manage the content of the event, but more importantly, we are expected to be able to offer the expertise to ensure the event achieves its full potential. Aside from actually implementing the content production services, we need to be able to provide guidance on the latest technological advances and equipment that are available to clients.

I have worked in the conference and events industry for over 20 years now, and one thing that still remains true is that each event is different – and this needs to be captured by the production team. This includes everything from the technology available, to the choice of venue, the style of lighting and the stage design – and, of course, the audience.

Increasingly the focus today is on interactive conferencing – getting the audience to feel an integral part of the event and working with them to shape the overall experience. A key part of this is the use of audience response systems, with the technology now available to instantly gauge attitudes and monitor reactions.

"We need to ensure that event organisers continue to build their understanding about the creativity this technology gives us, and embrace the opportunities it opens up"

However, as interactive keypad technology has developed to offer far greater insight than a simple A, B or C response, it is no longer being used to its full potential. This is due to a combination of nervousness about committing to something new, and a lack of communication about the technology’s full potential.

It is this communication that is key. We need to ensure that event organisers continue to build their understanding about the creativity this technology gives us, and embrace the opportunities it opens up.

With today’s audience response keypads the level of interaction created is incomparable, allowing participation that is straightforward and powerful. The key to their success is simple – each audience member has their own keypad, allowing every individual to feel greater inclusion in the event and be sure that their views are being heard.

The keypads also give event organisers the ability to capture a vast amount of data in an instant. This data can be immediately incorporated into a presentation, providing an event that reflects the real-time attitudes of the people who matter most – the delegates. Allowing greater in-depth analysis and assessment of results, keypads offer a fair and accurate insight into the audience, allowing companies to plan and develop their approaches based on true response.

I am a great believer in this technology. We have recently invested in 1,000 keypads, and have committed to organising free interactive training seminars once a quarter, where businesses can learn how the keypads can be used to maximum effect at their conferences and events.

If we, as an industry, are to maximise the potential of new technologies, it is vital that we communicate the advantages and techniques with our clients, presenting them with simple solutions that allow them to create more engaging events that can have real impact.

Interactive conferencing is a current hot topic for the industry, but this will no doubt change with future technological advancements – and when it does, we need to be ready to offer the support and guidance that the new challenges will bring.

The michael kors outlet online patient must take michael kors outlet insulin injections. For type 2 diabetes, it is coach factory outlet official coach handbabgs new 2014 often michael kors outlet possible to michael kors outlet go on a diet the north face outlet and cure yourself of having to take any medications. I know louis vuitton handbags several people that lost michael kors outlet weight by christian louboutin sale eating healthy and got cheap jeseys rid of type 2 diabetes. michael kors outlet In canada goose jackets the first, Richard louis vuitton handbags Sharp, an eminent and perceptive thinker christian louboutin outlet regarding the ethical, cheap uggs legal, and louis vuitton outlet social implications of genetics, argues for our efforts the north face outlet due to formidable consent challenges and the tremendous datahandling problems that are sure to arise when one begins to grapple with terabytes of information michael kors outlet online (page 191). Although these issues are certainly cheap jeseys thorny and will require innovation and wisdom to uggs australia successfully confront, I michael kors handbags personally do not think that they present insurmountable cheap uggs barriers louis vuitton handbags michael kors outlet to the rather nearterm implementation of WGS michael kors outlet online in the clinic. The use of arrays and ugg boots canada goose outlet michael kors outlet panels of genes, christian louboutin sale a scaleddown approach for which Sharp argues, is limited by our coach factory outlet official coach handbabgs new 2014 profound myopia: what genes should be in a given panel michael kors outlet and what alleles represented michael kors outlet in any given array? Rather, I suspect the way louis vuitton forward is through the application of WGS to defined patient populations in ugg boots coach outlet-coach factory outlet store online a learnasyougo context.

US Virgin Islands. Uganda. Ukraina. In anorexia appear hormonal effects that can have severe health consequences: decrease of reproductive hormones, thyroid hormones, growth hormones and increase of stress hormones. Longterm, irregular or absent menstruation (amenorrhea) is the result of many of these hormonal abnormalities in women. These can appear early in anorexia and over michael kors outlet time causes infertility and bone loss.

Discover the language on your own: I must say michael kors outlet online this is one feature that differentiates an active learner louis vuitton handbags from a coach factory outlet official coach handbabgs new 2014 passive learner. This feature reflects the level of enthusiasm in a person who wishes to learn Spanish. Just like a growing child who michael kors outlet discovers the world on his own, a learner who is new to the language louis vuitton should also discover the language nfl jerseys on his own..

The BCG vaccine was developed in 1921 but, although efficient at protecting against disseminated forms of TB in children, is unreliable against the pulmonary forms in adults that account for most of the worldwide disease burden. Current strategies to develop new vaccines are directed either at improving the BCG vaccine for preventive purposes or developing a postexposure vaccine to prevent reactivation of latent infection. It has been estimated that an effective postexposure vaccine would michael kors outlet prevent 3040% of TB cases..

In fact, as I pass by, it's doubtful he even christian louboutin outlet recognizes my presence. But my mind suddenly attaches to the cow because there have been an inordinate number of cows recently peppering my dreams, my waking life, my visit to the dentist's office when I noticed a magazine on the seat next to me talking about the state of the cattle industry. What does it all mean?.
