Five Minutes of Think Time

One of the hazards of having a job covering the meetings and events industry is that you end up viewing conferences and events in a very different light. Sure, I attend for the topic at hand, but I often find myself viewing the conference through a different lens. I’m often thinking about how the conference is organized and what is good, bad and just plain ugly.

Nice Nails!

A good manicure may do wonders for your confidence, but how about your branding? Nail Printing Events takes the manicure to a different level. The company has the ability to print any image on demand at events. Whether you choose to take a selfie, upload an image or choose from hundreds of designs they have on offer, they will print an image that can be used on top of natural, gel or acrylic nails. It’s ideal for product launches but is also suited to company events where branding is essential.

How Long is Too Long?

Attention spans are short these days but not everything can be summed up in 40 characters. On the flip side, how long do you have before attendees start losing focus (and patience)? I thought of this yesterday while I was locked in a room in an off-site, all-day meeting. One of the drawbacks of working for a magazine that spotlights the meetings and events industry is you pay attention to all of these tiny details that others may not even notice. Case in point? The first thing someone did in the meeting was close all of the blinds. Ugh.

MeetingPlay Makes Networking More Fun

With a background in e-commerce from Marriott, Joe Schwinger, CEO and Co-Founder, MeetingPlay, is no stranger to the tech space. “Five years ago, I knew the future of meetings would mean providing experiences that went beyond normal,” says Schwinger.

Enter MeetingPlay, which acts as a meeting therapist of sorts. “When you come to us, we don’t ask what features you want implemented. We ask what your goals are and what your hurdles are,” says Schwinger. MeetingPlay designs an app that drives event engagement.
