Having a room full high level executives or fresh minds is pointless if you’re not going to take advantage of the collective intelligence. Truth is, it doesn’t really take much to engage them and tap on their insights. Try using a Word Cloud we guarantee you’ll be addicted. The best part? It only takes 30 seconds to quickly get a feel on the sentiments in the room!

Get your audience to think of one word that best reflects their takeaway from the session and voila! A word cloud is formed with words with higher frequency appearing larger as compared with the rest. Need them to find out the type of solutions they might choose for a certain problem? The world cloud is the way to go! You can even use it to get a very quick feedback on the session as well as find out the demographics on your audience.

But don’t leave just yet! It is always good to analyse the information that has been presented before. It might be expected, it might be surprising, but it will definitely be interesting to find out what everyone thinks. As with any fun thing, too much repetition with no real purpose or outcome for the audience to see would just get annoying after a while.

The Singapore Grand Prix has had a positive effect on the MICE Industry without a doubt. Many events and conferences are now scheduled around that period for a good mix of work and play. With the Singapore Gran Prix in it’s 8th year, let’s take a quick look of the impact and spillover effect it has through a quick infographic.

Event Technology has been around for quite some time and has evolved over the years changing the way events are held all over the world! From lights, effects, staging, projection, audience engagement systems, and the list goes on. In our field, while polling devices was once all the rage, such systems are now merged seamlessly with mobile conference applications which has seen a boom in North America and many parts of the world.

 

With all these changes, there has been a lag in how they have been received, with event organisers’ and event participants’ often playing the catch up game and falling behind. Often they are even unwilling to try something new, afraid to be paid a visit by their long lost friend Murphy.

 

Not to worry! From our experience, these fears are often due to uncertainty and being on unfamiliar territory. Implementing mobile technology for your event is actually quite simple if done correctly. Here’s how you do it…

 

Strong and Stable WiFi Connection for Multiple Devices

Post 22

 

For an experience with mobile applications, connectivity is an essential item that you need. Cater for sufficient bandwidth for all your participants’ so that they have the freedom to browse freely without any lag from their various devices! Look for a venue known for their stable and strong connection. Get a dedicated line if you must as free Wi-Fi may not be good Wi-Fi.

 

Clear Instructions for Logging in on Posters/Signages

IMG_4128

 

Have clear instructions around the venue on how to download the application as well as how to login and participate. Having such materials visible throughout the venue not only helps to enforce the use of the application, but it also helps in creating a buzz and creates a quick answer on what to expect the moment participants’ arrive at the venue.

 

Logistical Support/Help Desk
IMG_2169

 

Always have logistical support and a help desk on standby to help your participants’ with their issues or questions. Leave difficult questions to these experts who manage mobile applications on a regular basis.

 

Technical Support
IMG_2604

On top of a help desk, technical support to manage the system is also essential. These are the people who control what goes up on the screen and helps manage the content on the apps, helpin you make last minute changes and pushing new information to the users’.

 

Demonstration/Reminders

IMG_2628

No matter how many posters you have placed around the room, a reminder from the emcee is something that is always needed. Start of with a quick demo to guide them through. Without this, delays might occur as participants’ unlock their devices, go to the app and start looking for what they need. By then, the moment for their voice to be heard might have already passed.

 

Before any session that requires their participation, get them ready as well! This will help things go on smoothly and provided additional security to the speaker on stage that he will get a response.

 

After a while, your participants’ will get the hang of it and you will start to see great improvements in interactions and richness of conversations.

 

So what are you waiting for? Try out event technology in your next conference. Contact us to find out more!

When Micepad began in 2011, we sought to change the way meetings and conferences were carried out. Changing mindsets and reinventing age old methods was no easy task. It took a while for the idea to catch on, but catch on it did. Since 2011, we have served a broad range of clients from government organisations to well-known MNCs across Asia becoming one of the leading engagement and event applications. Our platform enables conference attendees to collaborate and connect with one another through real-time modules such as Q&A, Polls, Quizzes, Live Slides and many more exciting features in the pipeline.

So quickly ten weeks have passed and we bid farewell to our interns from NTU and SMU. While there was much to learn for them, there was just as much to learn for us. Having been through the internship program here at Micepad as a student, it brought back fond memories of how we were as a company then, and the progress that we have made over the past two years.

 

As a company, we strongly believe in nurturing talents that will enter the workforce in the near future. We do not believe in letting our interns perform menial tasks like photocopying and coffee making. By tapping on their fresh perspectives and involving them in work that is meaningful and has a direct contribution to what we do, we stand to gain so much more. We are proud to say that over the past ten weeks, we have seen many new ideas, new initiatives as well as improvements in our processes with their involvement.

 

So… If you have what it takes, and are keen to join a fast-paced learning environment, join our internship program today! We offer internships in the following positions:

  • Digital Event Executive
  • Sales & Marketing Executive
  • iOS/Android Programmer
  • UI/UX Designer

With that, I bid farewell to our interns and wish them all the best for the remaining years in university. You have a bright future ahead!
