Another year, another Event Tech Live. It was great to catch up with so many industry peers from years gone by while also meeting the flock of new delegates this year. The ETL event app made the process of catching up and networking easy and straight forward.
Rob, our Head of Innovation, spoke on a panel entitled, Design Effectiveness = Data Effectiveness. Many of the panellists were coming at it from an exhibition point of view, while Rob has a conference perspective. He focused on how data is useful for organisers and attendees, utilising it to personalise an individual’s event experience.
The hotel where the team stayed was opposite Dennis Severs house. It's a house that is kept in its original state with figures lurking in the windows, staring down at passers-by, giving the street a sinister vibe.
Tech highlights included:
An automated barista who took orders via IPad and when the coffee appeared, it had a picture of your face on it. Simple things and minds were blown!
The new Slido quiz feature was also a highlight, as it provides an excellent opportunity to reinforce learning through polling at live meetings and events.
At the ETL awards evening, a champagne robot roamed the room, serving drinks throughout. Rob also tried out being the next Bond in the human kaleidoscope.
