The Future of Technology in the Meetings Industry

The Future of Technology in the Meetings Industry

Technology is fueling an increasingly fast paced society that is exciting for some and frightening for others. Who we listen to and who we trust is changing, and in person meetings and events remain the best place to build authority via professional development and continuing education. How can you improve your use of social media today, and where will it be in 10 years? What role will artificial intelligence and automation play in the event business? How is our addiction to mobile devices and the rise of augmented and virtual reality changing how we interact and communicate? What technologies are going to have the largest impact over both the short and long term? And most importantly, how can we keep up with it all!?

Speaker: Jesse Hirsh
