40 Simple Web Tools for Associations and Event Planners

Association Tech Tools

A really awesome reader, who works for an association whose members do life saving work (really, they are that cool), sent me an email and asked a simple question. Rather than paraphrase and get it wrong, I figured that I would re-post the email for all to see.

I have redacted some of the identifying parts of the email, because, in all honesty, I have I always wanted to redact something because it seems way more cool and important than just removing the text… It makes it seem like super secret stuff, like the CIA or NSA.. So, you will see her association and her name as REDACTED because it is just so 21st century and we all know that I am just a totally hip dude. Read More

The Event is Over – What About the Website

So, the last attendee has gone home. Your event is accomplished, achieved, closed, come to an end, concluded, consummated, discharged, dispatched, done with, ended, executed, finalized, fulfilled, over and done, realized, resolved, settled, terminated, through, worked out, wound up, wrapped up…. it was a hit, smashing, successful, super… now what do you do with that damn website.

I would take a page out of the Google I/O (developers conference) playbook and don’t let your website or attendee excitement go to waste.

Be simple. Be Bold. Be creative. But do something. An idle website is a waste of good cyberspace.

We do stuff like this all the time and I can tell you from experience….  the most important step is knowing where you want the journey to end.

Go and check it out.

I love what is coming down the pike in the event tech arena. There are some amazing people out there, creating some pretty wild stuff, just blowing us away.

Right now, over at Indiegogo (Kinda like Kickstarter) there is a little project called TouchPico. A touch what?? Mind. Gutter. You need to get out more… TouchPico is a really cool Android PC that has been gene spliced to a tiny projector that throws an 80″ image up on a wall, a screen, or even the side of your car if you were so inclined. “So what” you say… “There are plenty of itty bitty projectors out there”. My answer is, yep, there are. The projector is only half of the cool factor. Read More
