Advances in technology and with careful planning, it is possible to run a conference or seminar on a more environmental friendly and cost effective basis. Especially as many of the delegates come with their own mobile devices, ideal for storing conference information.
Capitalizing on Smart Phone Technology
How many of us continue to refer to paper in our daily working lives? With many of us hot desking or working in open plan environments, the chances are that all paper documentation will end up in the recycling bin.
Instead, consider a website or app with all the conference information contained on it that your delegates can log into using codes obtained whilst at the conference, with a list of handy apps they may wish to use at your conference, such as Evernote, which is ideal for taking home notes from the conference.
Event Apps for Administration
There are many mobile event apps in available that can offer an alternative to thick printed conference programme booklets and registration instructions. Putting conference contents into the palms of your delegates’ hands, rather than expecting them to leaf through sheets of paper.
Say “Bye” to Business Cards
Social media, whether it’s LinkedIn profile or other platforms, is a crucial way to connect in the business world of today. Rather than exchanging business cards, use app technology that allows conference delegates to connect over social platforms during and after the conference.
With today’s technologies here to help, you too could make your next conference completely paperless and further enhance your green credentials!
