Event planning technology has come a long way since the breakthrough days of using PowerPoint and big screens for main stage events. Of course, there are always those who fret about technology not delivering and therefore shy away from really engaging with the newest developments; however,embedding the latest tech options can really enhance your event and give you the edge when it comes to attracting participants. Check out some of these innovative solutions that are driving contemporary event planning.
In organizational terms, pre and post-event interaction via social media has become an integral part of the occasion. The principal websites can be invaluable; make maximum use of Google Hangouts, Twitter feeds, LinkedIn and Facebook threads to promote your event, discuss it widely,and ensure both participants and non-participants are having useful dialogues about it.
Don’t ignore the influence and popularity of engaging with technology when it comes to planning your next event; to do so is to risk being left behind. Therefore, make sure any sound systems, projection equipment and staging you are using is fully up to speed.
Similarly, organize the social networking permissions beforehand so that your participants are clear about what is sanctioned and aware of any sessions where confidentiality and discretion may be needed.
Technology has also inspired many new ways of entertaining event participants and audiences. The traditional fireworks display, for example, is ever more dependent on increasingly sophisticated pyrotechnics software to achieve starbursts, booms and spectacular blasts – even more so when this is linked to accompanying music.
In the same way, engineers of aquatic displays and water special effects, such as Aquatique Show International, produce amazing features includinga beautiful fountain dancing to music and a backdrop of multicolored curtains of water with the aid of cutting edge innovative technology.Many aquatic special effects“perform” to music, creating a perfectly synchronized light and water show that you must see in order to truly appreciate the mastery and skill it involves.
Depending on your location and the theme of your event, it may be that a good option when it comes to entertainment is the beauty of ice sculptures. Technology now allows ice sculptors to reproduce company logos in ice impressions that are awe-inspiring.
In the end, water shows often prove to be the most spectacular celebratory events – so advanced is the technology that governs them. Perhaps it is the magic appeal of water, which is universal, that prompts us to appreciate technology’s ability to manipulate water jets, spurts and fountains, color them with lights and make them hop, skip and dance to music that is so enchanting.
If you can make sure your organizational systems and procedures are using software and applications that are at the cutting edge of technology, and your chosen participant experiences and memorable events are well coordinated, then your event planning is more likely to operate smoothly and go according to plan. This is how to ensure that your event will make the most of current technology and ultimately be successful.
