Technology and Gadgets that will Transform Your Events in 2018

Technology has quickly become a must for meetings and events regardless of locations. Before, during, and after the event attendees will use the technology they have at hand to improve their experience. Therefore, it’s important to consider what will make their event experience unforgettable.

In that sense, we’ve put together a list of gadgets and tools that will turn any traditional even into an amazing journey.

 

Event apps

They’re oftentimes used as an interactive piece in the whole event process to engage with attendees, provide key event information, list sponsors and participants, and provide practical information like venue maps, content and more. Apps are also a great tool to gather attendee feedback and business contacts. Go through this comprehensive list of tools and apps to start using them today.

 

Telepresence robots

Once found only in Sci-Fi movies, telepresence robots is quickly becoming a thing of the present. They enable hybrid events – where there are participants who are not physically present, but are following the event remotely – and are particularly useful for people who don’t have the time to get to meetings and events on different continents on a regular basis. What’s great about these robots is that they are controlled by a computer and enable the non-physically present participant to drive around at the event and have conversations with other participants during breaks.

 

Go-pro cameras

Frequently used by stuntmen, parachute gliders and sports enthusiasts, go-pro cameras can be a great addition to your next event. They can be mounted on a participant’s head to film the event and live stream it to participants who are not physically present.

 

Drones

Drones can be used at events as they make it possible to follow fast action across a large field. Drones can get much closer to the action than any photographer. For example, the entire American Super Bowl was filmed from the air using a drone. Drones can be combined with footage from traditional video cameras and GoPros to capture highlights from your event.

 

Virtual Reality

VR enables remote attendees to experience the event as if they were there themselves and closer to the action than ever before. Advanced 360-degree cameras enable attendees to see others in the room as if they were right there alongside them. Take for example the demonstration Intel made at CES 2017 when for Intel’s CEO, Brian Krzanich’s keynote, the venue was equipped with over 200 headsets, thus combining the virtual world to a real-world event experience.

The virtual world also provides plenty of opportunities for marketing, co-branding, sponsorship and, by leveraging the possibility to live stream VR content straight to viewers’ social feeds, it’s easier for that branding to reach more people in real-time.

 

3D Printing

It would be a pity not to mention 3D printing when everyone’s talking about it. This technology is prone to becoming more compact and more affordable in the near future. Event attendees can use it to personalised their experience and take with them 3D printed objects to remind them of the wonderful time they’ve had.
