5 gadgets to boost your event
Digitalization spares no-one! Even the events industry has jumped on the bandwagon.
Different technologies offer innovative and creative solutions which can spice up the visitor’s experience in a sustainable and remarkable way. Below we show you 5 gadgets that will boost your next event!
By transforming listeners into active participants, a discussion or Q&A session can easily be brought to life. Problems arise at such events once the presenter passes the microphone to the brave participants. Many people have never used a microphone before. Hence, they do not know how to speak into a microphone in such a way that the audience understands more than just a muffled noise. In addition to that, the passing on of the microphone delays the talk even more. Wurfmikro provides an adequate solution and brings the necessary movement into the conversation. The colorful cube can be thrown from one speaker to the other and is far easier to handle than a conventional microphone. Go ahead at your next event and start throwing the cube for more participation and easier interaction!
Partakers of international conferences know how much effort is required in getting to grips with interpretation technology. From getting the headset to finding the right signal, the equipment has to be carried around until the bitter end. In addition to the rental cost, further complications arise for the event organizer if all headsets are not returned by the end of the day. Lineapp’s software “CAST” solves this problem and offers even more features for the user. There is no need for the interpreter to be in the same country as the user. The only thing needed is WiFi and the application “CAST”. The accurate receiver can be downloaded onto every mobile phone or tablet and even works without internet once downloaded. The interpretation will then be translated in crystal-clear HiFi quality through the visitor’s headset. This enables the participant to wander around the event location while he synchronically listens to the interpretation.
#3 Augmented Reality
Virtual Reality is a thing of the past. Today, we bet on Augmented Reality instead, which can be a game changer when organising a successful and remarkable event. The camera as well as the sensors of a smartphone are used to insert digital elements into ‘real’ life. In doing so, the environment of the user will be enriched with additional explanations, details and images of the area. As an individualized and tailor-made product, AR caters directly to the needs of your up-coming event.
Creating Lightpainting pictures is not only exciting, it also offers exceptional branding opportunities. Event visitors are encouraged to release their inner artist and craft their own depiction. Lightpainting pictures are fantastic memorabilia and create long-lasting impressions. By using light, you can sketch your image live and within seconds. As a result, each picture is absolutely unique. An even more spectacular version of Lightpaintings is the so called “Luma Painter”, where participants draw on walls.
EventMobi is an event application that functions as a schedule / agenda for the specific event. By personalizing and organizing visitor and lecturer profiles, the event host reduces print costs and is much more flexible when it comes to last-minute changes. At the same time, the application provides important information that can be accessed by every end user separately. The platform facilitates the uncomplicated orientation and invites visitors to interact with the event hosts. Visitors can easily participate in live opinion polls or give their valuable feedback. These are only some of the features EventMobi has to offer. In order to use the platform effectively at your upcoming events, one must bear in mind that this event technology is not just an add-on, but a tool that improves processes and advances the whole experience.
