Event technology is at the forefront of 2016 – in fact, it seems technology – defined by Merriam Webster as "the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry" has been on the edge of tongues since the inception of time... or at least since the digital age. If you go back far enough, the term technology was coined over 200 years ago... but the meaning, definition, and application of what "technology" is - has changed drastically over the years - especially the last 10 years.
Today, whether technology is specific depending on what industry you are referencing – and yet whether it’s mechanical, science, engineering, or even digital – technology is relevant and ever changing.
And event technology is no hidden cousin – in fact, event technology is one of the most relevant and impactful ways in which technology is growing and adapting.
From event social walls / tag boards, mobile event apps, live polls during events (once known as ‘Audience Response System’), the many ways we can engage and network at events, help sponsors, show ROI – or so much more – there’s no denying, event technology is on the forefront of breaking edge technology – and of course, MeetingPlay is topping the list of the industries cutting edge technology providers.
