    Say It Big

The world of conferences depends on presentations. Whether abroad or at home, almost any given meeting will rely on technology to disseminate information to large groups of people. "Interactive event technology is a completely new service offering for us," says Erin Dugan, director of marketing and database management, Global DMC Partners. Global DMC Partners and Giant iTab began a new partnership in early 2017 that brings convenience to presentations and information sharing all over the world. 

Global DMC Partners is a collection of destination management companies that serve over 500 locations across the globe, and offers “event services, like spend management, global transportation, team-building, entertainment and more," says Dugan. "Our partnership with Giant iTab diversifies our services and global solutions even more."

Giant iTab devices are based on familiar touch screen devices, but are much larger and are used to display any type of virtual information. "Just like a tablet or smartphone, with the Giant iTab you can select, load and present all your digital content onto one single device. Any digital content is possible, including iOS and Android apps, websites, press, PDFs and brochures, floor plans, conference agendas, attendee lists, speaker information, visitor check-in, customer feedback and much more," says Dugan. 

"Giant iTab's model fits perfectly with ours in that they can service clients and meetings all over the world," says Catherine Chaulet, president, Global DMC Partners. The devices come with full installation and support services through the two companies. 

Great lighting is key. Smart décor is a must. But the mood of any gala, auction or awards ceremony lies largely on the shoulders of its master of ceremonies. Who you choose to represent your cause or organization on stage can be the difference between an event that is “ho-hum” or “electrifying.”

By the time the now-iconic photo of one Fyre Festivalgoer’s pitiful cheese sandwich had gone viral, social media platforms and news outlets were abuzz with shock and bewilderment—questioning how the seemingly star-studded island excursion could have resulted in half-built FEMA-issued tents, cancelled musical acts and stranded attendees.

 

What these leaders may not realize is that the old approach to meetings, where someone talks the team to sleep is quickly becoming unacceptable. Companies and planners everywhere are ditching their boring meetings and adopting more effective practices.
Two factors driving revolution throughout the modern workplace also demand a new way of meeting: digitalization and VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
