W12 Conferences: Conferences are Evolving due to Improved Technology

People are connecting with others online during conferences making conferences more social

United Kingdom – 07 April, 2015 – Experts are noticing a growing trend in the meeting industry and say that meetings and conferences are becoming more connected“integrating technology into live events and allowing participants to virtually attend.” Gone are the days when meetings only involved those that are in the room.

More than 5 billion mobile devices are in use todayaccording to Michael Peachy from Salesfore.com. With so many people now having a mobile device that is easily connected to the internet, people are using them more and more. Mr Peachy said at Wired, “behind every device is an attendee, and they are plugged into apps and social networks”. He went on to say “the way conferences use mobile devices to present content is critical.”

Mr Steedman froma major conference venue in London, W12 Conferences said “people’s outlook on mobile devices is changing. Gone are the days when being on your phone at an event would be considered rude. Now it is almost encouraged as people appreciate that you are writing about them and sharing their content.” He went on to say “it is important for event planners to find venue space that allow for virtual elements and other customisation. Virtual elements help to keep delegates engaged and accommodate their needs.”

This trend is supported by a study of conference-planning professionals. According to the study, around 42 percent of respondents said technology will be increasingly influential in the meetings industry over the next 15 years. Live events will incorporate virtual components more and more.

Mr Steedman went on to say that“W12 Conferences has worked hard to insure theirmultipurpose rooms have modern facilities with full audiovisual equipment and Wi-Fi available for hire as we believeit is important to be at the forefront of technologyand meet the changing needs of eventplanners.”
