Today meeting planners can share their presentations with individual attendees via Apple iPad, making each event more memorable and the sessions more engaging
London – 22, February 2012 – With the adoption of mobile technologies growing at a rapid rate, PSAV® Presentation Services is introducing the iMeeting Experience to make event presentations more engaging. Utilising the Apple® iPad®, meeting planners can instantly share content from their laptop directly onto iPads® provided to event attendees.
PSAV is a global supplier of audiovisual services and event technologies to decision makers responsible for organising meetings, conferences, and events worldwide.
The work of the company’s multinational team spans the globe, delivering the best in video & projection, lighting, set design and construction, sound, staging, event IT support, rigging, high-definition event videoconferencing and now, power testing.
“PSAV is known around the globe for using technology to make events memorable and engaging, ” said PSAV Managing Director Stephan Earl. “By offering each meeting participant an Apple iPad, meeting planners are able to connect directly to the content via an iPad for easy viewing. The use of this technology makes meetings more personal and helps attendees to better retain the message. Meeting planners hosting events across Europe can quickly deliver a one-of-a-kind event with the iMeeting Experience from PSAV. ”
Each iMeeting package includes: iPad devices with table stands, a high-speed WiFi router and a presentation computer. “In the past, meeting planners were limited to using screens and projectors, portable monitors or bulky hand-held audience response devices to share their message and interact one-on-one with their delegates, ” Earl said. “Today iPads are
removing communication obstacles by delivering content in a format that most consumers are familiar with today.”
In the fourth quarter 2011, Apple sold 11.12 million iPad devices, up 166% over the year-ago quarter. With consumers purchasing this tablet device in record numbers across the globe, it only makes sense that meeting planners incorporate this in-demand technology into their events. Whether it’s used to share information during a small educational session or to send bids for a private auction, using iPads in the meetings environment is here to stay, and it’s changing the way meetings will be conducted now and long into the future. “Meeting planners can continue to use conventional meeting technology and now augment that with new technologies that enhance the experience and keep attendees engaged and ‘wowed,’ ” said Steven Short, PSAV Vice President, Interactive Services. “In addition to using the iPad as a display, PSAV is also a Mobile Event App provider. Our Express App is available in the U.S. today and coming soon to Europe for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices as well as a Mobile Web version which can be used on any web enabled device.Encompassing
nine of the most common features requested for Mobile Apps, the PSAV Mobile Event Express allows clients to fully harness the power of their mobile device.
“MobileEvent™ Express automatically sends out regular updates to attendees, helping presenters keep everyone on the same page with the latest information,” he said. “Offering a mobile option cuts down on the need to print conference materials and mail information to attendees before/after the event takes place. In this way, PSAV’s Mobile Solutions enable a ‘green experience’ for the facility, the meeting planner and the attendee. Facility information can also be made available to meeting goers via the Mobile App to help increase on-site spending, either at the hotel or conference center. ”
