Topic: Event Tech – The Meeting of the Future
(EIC Clock Hour Approved)

"What do Pokémon Go, driverless cars and the Internet of Things have to do with the meeting and event industry? They’re all technologies disrupting how we do business. Twenty years ago, having a mobile phone was optional, hotels took room reservations via telex machines and the only way to be social online was to join an AOL chat room. Now everyone with a smartphone is walking around with a fully-loaded production studio in their pocket, social-sharing what they experience with people who are only virtually there. What will meetings and events look like 20 years from now?

Learner Outcomes:
Analyze the behavioral science behind today’s hottest technology trends.
Understand how next-generation technology can be immediately applied to meetings and events.
Evaluate the ways in which these technologies might disrupt the industry and the way people engage face-to-face in the future.

Join your industry friends and peers for an afternoon of good food, friends and fun. Anyone can play Topgolf, from aspiring pros to those who've never walked 18 holes. All you have to do is swing a club and try to hit your microchipped balls into dartboard-like targets. It's competitive. It's fun. And it's always better with a big group!

Here's what planners have to say about our Tpgolf event:

"That was a great event. One I actually loved attending and I getting to meet the hotel sales teams in a ‘no-sell- zone.” –Jimmy Stewart, National Director, Internal Strategy & Support, National Alliance on Mental Illness

"Great event, as usual! Thanks so much for making life so fun in this industry." –Leslie Zeck, CMP, CMM, Director of Meetings, International & American Association for Dental Research
