Scannable for Evernote – an #eventprofs Best Friend


Wow. Do I love me some Evernote for meeting and event peeps. A total replacement for the event binder and your brain. Evernote creates tools that are just brilliant.

For example, how many times have you been standing in the conference office, overseeing a reg desk, or working late in your hotel room and thought “I really wish I had a scanner right now?”. Happens to me all the time. Floorplans, BEOs, receipts, biz cards… you name it, I want to scan it and get rid of the paper because paper is so…. 20th Century. Read More

Is Dropbox Filling Your Hard Drive – Take Control

Dropbox kicks butt in my humble opinion. It is by far the easiest way to keep files in sync between multiple computers, your tablet, and your phone. For the meeting planner or event professional, this can be a godsend when you need to access stuff like site inspection photos, graphic files, attendee lists, or floor plan layouts when you don’t have your laptop handy. There is a certain sense of calm that flows over you knowing that you can access your stuff anywhere, any time, any how. Heck, you can even share the calm and get Dropbox for business and your entire meeting team can share folders. Read More

An Event App Chat with BigEventApp


In today’s episode of the PlannerWire Sporadic Podcast, PlannerWire (Keith) is chatting with (Mike and Carl).

Mike and Carl will tell you that their mission is to create buzz-worthy apps, that are clear, highly intuitive and include schedules, speakers, restaurant guides, social integration, and more and I do think that they succeed with a great product…I would also throw in that they are nice guys who know their stuff.

During our conversation, we touch on everything from their product and the current state of event apps to the future and what it holds for conferences going mobile.

Are Meeting Planners Qrious – They Should Be


In this episode of the PlannerWire Meeting Planning Podcast I have a chat with John Federico, CEO of Qrious, our favorite new app / SAAS for doing three things:

  • Getting attendee’s badges done right
  • Helping exhibitors with easy lead retrieval
  • Attendee session and event check-in

During our conversation, we talk about what Qrious is and does, how it came to be, and how easy it is to use and oh yeah, did I mention? Qrious works with all of the major online registration companies including RegOnline, EventBrite, Amiando, and EventEspresso…..

Grab a coffee or maybe a scotch and have a listen… who knew you could have a good time talking badges and leads.
