MPI's Annual Technology Day

meeting technology
This week MPI will host its Annual Technology Day on Thursday, April 22nd at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, CA. It will be an all day event where event planners can come together to learn more about the impact of technology in the meetings and events industry. One thing that has always remained a constant no matter what field you are in is identifying ways to win over your audience with fewer resources. How do we make a profit while saving both time and money? Ah, the million dollar question. This event will help answer these questions in the world of event planning and the MeetingMatrix software will play a large role in this.

The Annual Technology Day will focus on how to effectively connect your team and clients through cutting edge technology (where we come in), expanding your project management capability and increasing the success of your meetings. There will be seven different workshops throughout the day, topics will include: virtual meetings (make sure to check out our previous blog entry on this topic), mobile computing, social media for events and audience participation technologies.

Corbin Ball, CSP and CMP of Corbin Ball Associates, will deliver a luncheon keynote presentation on high impact meeting technologies. Ball, who we have heavily worked with, is extremely knowledgeable and will provide some excellent insight on the industry and valuable cutting edge technologies.

For planners who pre-register and attend the event on Tuesday will be eligible to receive the Gold level upgrade to our MeetingMatrix software for free, allowing you to create event setup diagrams for any function space – an $890 value! Yours just for attending this education packed event. We always give our Silver edition to planners for free, but for this special event we will provide the upgrade to Gold for free as well.

Sr. Marketing Manager
