We’re always trying to stay ahead of our competitors in the event space, offering the best tech we can in the most innovative ways possible; so when we discovered an article on the Event Manager Blog dedicated to showcasing the most interesting new start-ups this year we really felt compelled to take a look and see what was on offer for events professionals in 2015.
We are more than aware that most event visitors will have at least one connected device on them as they wander around, and it is more than likely that they will be active on one or more social media sites. Snapifeye allows event teams to brand any photos taken and thus maximise their impact on social media, allowing businesses to differentiate between official event images and amateur ones. Images can be quickly branded using the service with a connected device, then posted online swiftly to expand the reach of the picture, brand and event.
This is another tool that enhances the overall connected experience of an event visitor or client – it allows for slide-sharing and live interaction to be made easier for events professionals. Keynote speakers, for example, will be able to easily upload, check and present their presentation using the personalised online portal; the software also works on both Mac and PC.
Finally, we were intrigued by this particular service as it addresses the issue of fragmentation in events technology. Often professionals are left with different pieces of tech that work independently; Limelight integrates guest list management with email marketing and registration, and lead generation with marketing automation for a seamless experience.
We can provide various connected devices and AV equipment able to integrate some of the start-up concepts above, but we’re also very proud of our own ability to create new software solutions for specific event challenges. Is there any particular challenge in the events landscapes that you’d really like to see be addressed this year? What would make your life easier as an events specialist, or someone looking to exhibit in 2015?
