Uncovering the Top Trends in Measurement for Meetings and Conferences Today

Date: 6/23/2010
Time: 11am CST
Track: Event Technology Trends


The economy and emerging technology have driven tremendous change in the event industry. Event measurement and quantifiable justification are no longer nice to have – they are requirements. Are you using smart phones to provide surveys and conference evaluations via attendee’s mobile devices? Have you implemented a social media strategy to help you start and maintain a pre-event conversation with potential attendees to determine what topics will be of greatest interest and relevance? These are some of the areas we will be discussing as we explore the current technologies being rapidly adopted across the meetings and events industry. Lead capture is also an area where trends in measurement are changing. Just scanning a badge to know who stopped by your booth is no longer enough. These technologies allow us to bring disparate sources of information together to better understand attendee interests and preferences. By delivering corresponding metrics with an analysis of how your event affected intent to purchase, you are creating and delivering real value to your organization.

  • Create event objectives related to organizational objectives.
  • Understand the latest trends in the industry and how those trends relate to measurement.
  • Determine ways to increase event ROI with metrics.
