And the other top trends:
#4: Touch-screen technology:
This is being used more and more to modernize events, and has the ability to transform presentations.
#5: Multi-screen display presentation software:
Utilizing software that handles multiple projectors, or other display devices like video walls, plasma screens, etc. within a computer network, meeting planners can leave a jaw-dropping impression on event attendees.
#6: Branded charging stations:
This is increasingly popular not just at conferences, but all types of events. Branded (with sponsor advertising) charging stations allow people to change their devices, while turning these stations into a mini-networking environment as attendees huddle around their devices while they charge.
#7: Large-scale video installations:
Bigger is becoming better--companies are seeing video screens going from 40’ x 15’ to 62’ x 15’ to 120’ x 15’.
“We feel these trends are important for planners to know about and understand because this is the direction the AV industry is headed towards,” says Bob Daniels, president of the Rental and Staging Network. "Incorporating technology enhancements into meetings, events and conferences has become a big part of what planners are looking for when hiring an AV company, so it’s important planners are aware of trends and shifts in the industry.”
