How to Use Technology to Entertain and Engage your Conference Audience

Use Technology to Engage Your Audience

How often do you use your phone for anything other than a phone call, text message or email?

Meeting Planners meet The Wallrus

Meeting Planners Social Media Twitter Wall

I am the Walrus… Coo, Coo, Kachoo. Oh wait, this is not an article about the Beatles. I made a mistake. This is an article about the one thing that everyone should do at events but no one knows how to do, even though the most basic forms of the technology are almost 10 years old .

Old sayings, draped in cobwebs, hanging in the attic…. and yet, they are true and stand the test of time. The right image makes the written word come alive, an image can spur a fence-sitter into making a decision, and a well crafted image can increase the connection an association or event marketer has with their members and attendees.
