In today’s ever-changing technology landscape it can be difficult to stay on top of the newest trends. We’ll take a look at current and emerging technology to discover what holds the most value to meeting planners and industry suppliers. What emerging technologies are on the horizon and how will we likely use it – how will it impact our jobs and lives?

Join us at Angel Stadium on May 15th with special guest speaker Corbin Ball.
Corbin is an international speaker, consultant and writer helping clients worldwide use technology to save time and improve productivity. With 20 years of experience running international technology meetings, he now is a highly acclaimed speaker with the ability to make complex subjects understandable and fun.  Corbin was named as one of "The 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry" for 2012 by Successful Meetings magazine, having received this award four times previously.

Technology will likely change events more in the next five years than it has in the past fifteen! This interactive and information-packed session will cover the major technology trends creating these changes and what you can do to prepare for them.  We encourage you to bring your smartphone and tablet for an interactive experience!
