Tech-savvy apps for a smooth sailing conference

Who wants to do conferencing the old way when life is so much easier with the help of some ingenious cell phone apps?! What’s more, your delegates will be impressed by your forward thinking that it is likely to leave a memorable, positive and “modern” impression of your business in their minds.

Here are three of our favourite free Apps available on both Android and iOS:

  1. Screen Sharing. Say goodbye to manual documents and do your part in saving the trees with the use of a screen sharing app like ezTalks. You can share your presentations, videos and files in HD quality with up to 100 attendees for free with just one click! An effective tool for meetings as well, as this app allows users to engage on an interactive whiteboard, allowing for simple, swift decision making.
  2. Make your check-in process smooth. Particularly crucial to larger conferences, keep track of attendee numbers by using an app like Social Tables Check-in that speeds up event check-ins, collects real-time social media data about your attendees so you can customise your event accordingly and allows you to check any last-minute additions or changes to your guestlist. The free version allows you to monitor an event of 150 people.
  3. Keep your contacts close. Collecting business cards can be a pain, especially when you are handed many at a networking event. Contacts+ allows you to scan business cards with your phone camera and will sort the details into a categorised contact list that you can integrate with other business apps to create spreadsheets and much more.

Think about the connections, relationships and customers that you could build using one of our 60 meetings or conferencing venues and by implementing some new-age changes to your systems.
