The people behind the Event Marketing Summit are now three years into EventTech (Las Vegas, Nov. 4-6), “the world’s only conference and exposition focused on using social media and technology to optimize events and trade shows.” Blending today’s technology, some design sense, and a little expert assistance, companies can turn live events into “digital+live” presentations, while social media can amplify their voices and extend the reach of the events. This is the place to learn all of this!
More than 650 marketing professionals—from the Fortune 1000, top marketing agencies, business schools—will gather to
learn the latest trends in “digital+live” connections;
attend 100+ classes on managing events and trade shows; and
discuss new products, R&D, best practices, and compelling new ideas.
EventTech has a unique content format, “fast forward,” that offers deep but succinct overviews of the latest practices, useful gadgets, and new contributions to “digital+live” best practices. Proving that “less is more” with TED-style modules of varying length, a centralized system delivers all content via the custom “learning environment” dubbed The Campus. Whether attending or presenting, get your conference team the iPad rental so everyone can get all the content, then search for the specialized training you need—from “gamification” to advanced streaming, whatever you need to stay current in this fast-moving field.
Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW)
As opposed to some conferences that try to be all things to all people, the Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW)—in New York City on Nov. 6 and 7—is specifically focused on technology that will empower, enrich, and engage customers and employees. Experts in marketing, management, technology, and customer service lead a first-rate educational program that will heighten “the impact of your customer engagement campaigns across all channels.” CETW sessions impart the branding strategies and actionable tactics that make up CETW’s “integrated technology approach to customer engagement.”
Your customers may be medical patients, students and faculty, diners, shoppers, travelers, or some other slice or swath of the general public. No matter who your customers are, CETW’s comprehensive approach guarantees new insights—and, better yet, action items proceeding from them. Solutions may involve mobile networks, tablet PCs, smartphones, and social media. For the ever-increasing number of “multi-screen initiatives” companies now undertake, the folks in your firm that plan, budget, implement, operate, maintain, and measure them absolutely need the future-proofing assistance at this year’s CETW.
2013 LDInnovation & Technology Conference
The LDInnovation & Technology Conference offers tech, media, and entertainment professionals three-days of state-of-the-art sessions, Nov. 21 through Nov. 23 in Las Vegas. The latest information, designs, technological breakthroughs, and products for lighting design for live events and media will be displayed and discussed. Choose courses that suit your professional needs, as many of them earn ETCP renewal credits. Computing technologies—like Xserve RAID systems, routers, AV interfaces, etc.—are seriously embedded where TV, film, music, theater, and studio professionals work, and no one advances without true expertise in one or more areas.
To that end LDInnovation features high-end learning, from “The Art of Programming” and “TV & Motion Picture Lighting” to “Production Techniques” and the “Sixth Annual LDI Ethernet Exchange.” There are many technical details in this kind of work, so many that ongoing education and study is essential to maintaining expertise. Your LDI badge grants free Exhibit Hall access for all three days, giving you a chance to engage 350+ top industry firms for one-on-one product demos, face time with manufacturers, free seminars, and the ETCP Info Session.
