When we return to onsite meetings, we will see the rapid rise of the “Smart Venue.” In a hybrid event environment, venues will need to invest in smart technology to assist the returning event organizer in managing the new, and at times daunting, digital needs of their events to reach their Web-only audience while also protecting the health of onsite attendees. Venues will need a major tech reboot that will scale at cost-efficient prices. 

By investing in Smart Venue technology, venues and destinations can purposefully partner with organizers to share the cost of digital, but also share the detailed business data, personalization, monetization and perhaps participate in the syndication of video session content similar to a TEDx presentation.

Join Meetings Today and hybrid event pioneer Mary Ann Pierce of MAP Digital for this free, one-hour webinar that will discuss the new interdependence of organizers, venues and technology platforms in building better meetings and events where everyone, especially the attendee, wins.

By participating in this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • How to create a touchless environment for registration, presentation management, webcasting and all onsite functions.
  • How robust internet access and flexible network infrastructure is no longer an option…it is oxygen.
  • How the integration of technology platforms will be the next innovation, with all stakeholders working on one platform.
