Improving the Flow of Your Conference’s General Sessions

Improving the Flow of Your Conference’s General Sessions | Tradeshows | Scoop.it
Often during conferences, event organisers worry that they might face challenges in keeping the delegates’ interest during the live general sessions. Similarly, attendees feel that they have been exposed to the same proceedings again and again, particularly if they are participating to an annual conference that follows the same build-up every year.

Event Crisis Management: 5 Tips to Help Event Planners Bounce Back | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

Crises happen to the best of us – that’s life. In the events industry, there are many small details that go into the perfect event, so it should come as no surprise that things could possibly go awry here and there. Despite the fear of something going wrong, the best way to address a crisis is to prepare for it in advance. In some cases, that means avoiding the issue entirely while, in other cases, it means having a crisis response plan ready should something happen.

3 Trends That Will Disrupt the Meetings and Events Industry in 2017

3 Trends That Will Disrupt the Meetings and Events Industry in 2017 | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

The primary shift in the meetings and events industry in 2017 is going to revolve around delivering business events that engage attendees in more multidisciplinary ways. For the last five years, the industry has been focused on two trends impacting meeting design strategy above all else: the rise of event technology and the emergence of the Millennial generation. There was growing consensus in 2016, however, that it’s time for the meetings industry to move beyond its preoccupation with those themes.

Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016 review

Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016 review | Tradeshows | Scoop.it
Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016 review The city of San Jose was the center of the first ever Silicon Valley Comic Con on March 18th-20th. The event, hosted by Steve Wozniak, saw a huge turnout for the first year. The con promised to be different from other comic cons that you may attend. Did they live up to that promise? Yes and no, to be honest. Like most comic cons, SVCC had a wide variety of venders selling comics, collectibles, replicas and more. The artist alley showed hugely talented artists selling prints of their original art and promoting their own books. There were also a lot of big names there, like a lot of the bigger cons. SVCC had Stan Lee, Jeremy Renner, Peter Mayhew, Nathan Fillion, and much more. Of course, most of them did panels, like Stan Lee, for example, who talked about his favorite cameos and why he doesn’t like the Doctor Doom movie costumes since they have never done it right. Jeremy Renner also did a panel and tried to help a 12-year-old kid understand why Hawkeye liked Black Widow in The Avengers, but had a wife and kids in Avengers: Age of Ultron.In that sense, there really wasn’t a huge difference between any other comic con. Really though, that is ok. I mean how different can those be and it wouldn’t be comic con without them and it provided some great classic comic con moments. In that sense, there really wasn’t a huge difference between any other comic con. Really though, that is okay. I mean how different can those be? It wouldn’t be a comic con without them, and it provided some great classic comic con moments. There were some differences, though. SVCC brought “together America’s two greatest superheroes: Pop Culture and Technology.” One thing that was there a lot more than other comic cons was technology. Starting at the entrance to the main hall, attendees were requited to scan their wristband on a digital pad to track data of some sort. It seems as though the wristbands were equipped with NFC technology and used to track attendees entering and leaving the hall. The wristbands were given at random so no personal info could have been on them. It seems as though The Woz wants to be sure about traffic numbers in preparation for next year. And of course, the data was being tracked on iPads. Aside from the wristband tracking, there were VR demonstrations, 3D printing vendors and a section called App Alley where developers can showcase their new projects. Never before have I seen that much tech at a comic con and that was awesome. Overall, Silicon Valley Comic Con seemed to be a major success. It had a classic comic con feel but had just enough extras to make it a little unique. Even though there were some experiences that can be had at other comic cons, this one was fun and I can see it becoming another staple in the comic con roster. I can’t wait until next year and see what they have up their sleeves for year two.

Scientists Are Working on the Ultimate Cure for Jet Lag

Scientists Are Working on the Ultimate Cure for Jet Lag | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

Painful as long-haul flights can be, it’s their aftermath — jet lag — that you should really be dreading. That might soon change, though. The medical community has taken the next step toward finding a jet-lag cure, thanks to a Salk Institute study published last year in Cell. According to Dr. Ronald Evans, the lead author of the study, a protein called Rev-ErbA (pronounced ree-verb-AY) may be the key to unlocking a regular, healthy circadian rhythm no matter where (or when) in the world you are.
