The Ultimate Meeting Professionals Guide to Internet Connectivity

Nancy Walker, Sales Director, ibtm events

NYPCMA welcomed tech guru Jim Spellos to the New York Hilton on April 22 for a lively and informative session, “The Ultimate Meeting Professionals Guide to Internet Connectivity.”  

Jim did what Jim does best... translate the somewhat nebulous world of technology into layman’s terms.  He shared tips to determine how much bandwidth is needs, what other forms of connectivity should be provided, how to incorporate this technology at your meetings or facilities, and why all of this will continue to have an enormous impact on the future of meetings.   

We left the session with a deeper understanding of how to correctly assess our meeting needs and how to communicate with our partners to ensure that the next meeting doesn’t fail due to the absence of essential technology.  In the end, it all comes down to communication, understanding and trust.

Our host, the New York Hilton Midtown pulled out all the stops and provided a fabulous reception after the event where attendees had a chance to discuss their learnings, indulge in some wonderful treats, and wish Mr. Spellos a happy birthday!

Thank you as well to the others who made this possible including Platinum Sponsor Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, Gold Sponsors London & Partners and Meet AC and Silver Sponsor Tourism Toronto.
