We all know that event technology will most probably never replace face-to-face interaction but technology is making strides to make our events more meaningful.
Let’s look more closely at some event technology trends that will come to the forefront in 2018-
• Facial recognition will be used for matchmaking
Plenty of algorithms are built to analyze facial features, body language and interpretation. The ability to check a database of faces in real time can speed check-ins while boosting security protocol
• AI-powered Chatbots
Artificial Intelligence can be used to help with attendee engagement and provide accurate information effectively.
• Collecting Data via RFID
Radio-Frequency Identification will be continued to be used to gather real-time, detailed data during check-in to keep a tab on who is attending the event and to be able to put together a list of attendees after the event.
• Event gamification
Event gamification has been picking up speed since 2017 and is known to help user engagement along with boost attendee networking.
• Proximity Sensors
These help people identify the people around them while providing useful information about their professional lives.
