A business conference may sound pretty refreshing with a meaningful for a regular office-goer. But in reality it is quite the contrast. A business conference can put a good deal of pressure on you physically and mentally as you showcase your business to the outside world and involve in the networking. A lot of the conferences are well-handled by the profound event-managers, but there is always some loophole that you realise only towards the end.
You first need to learn how to design a conference. Get some hands-on on conference management. Can technology play a role?
Here are few gadgets and applications that can make a business conference smart.
This device can be tremendously accelerative. The application provides features that can help you network with unimaginable pace. For instance, you could exchange digital business-cards. It allows you to see a list of participants at the conference and you could have a pre-conference introduction with the selected people by texting each other as well! Since the application bears a picture of the participants, it gives a face to the names as well. So despite the crowd and distance at the venue, you can tag the desired participant, locate him and hit it off once in proximity. The SpotMe radar helps you locate your friends with that little buzz. You could also avail a digital briefcase on SpotMe‘s My Briefcase feature; so you can have the presentation and tradeshow information, business contacts and cards, training material and exhibitor info all at one place. The SpotMe Barometer helps you identify how close you are to your goals and the solutions can be tailored to meet the goals. The device also gives you a spectrum of services from effective logistics – badge printing, attendance trafficking, virtual library rack etc. – to getting audience response as surveys, Q&As, ideas and suggestions among others. All these and so much more on one device.
