Interview with Mitchell Beer from Conference Publishers Show 202

Mitchellbeer Interview with Mitchell Beer from Conference Publishers Show 202

Interview with Mitchell Beer  (mitchell<@>theconferencepublishers.com) from Conference Publishers.    I have been a big fan of Mitchell and how his company captures content for meetings and events.

They capture targeted session summaries and sharp, compelling news capsules.

They gather and report the content as it is happening.

They also can help you develop onsite content and maximize its impact—before, during, and after the event.

Corporate Meeting Engagement Ideas

Imagine what your executive might be able to do with technology like this? What if you had several folks interacting using this technology. Great storytelling, audience engagement creative could be put together to get a message across.

Interview with Michael Douglas of GenieMobile Show 201

We met Genie Mobiles Michael Douglas last year at Virtual Edge Summit and PCMA.  After trading emails and getting a virtual demo both Jon and I were very impressed with the products GenieMobile builds.  They are a leading provider of mobile applications for events and meetings.  So to continue on highlighting our international friends, Michael comes from London where he and Genie Mobile are delivering great user experience with easy-to-use technology. GenieMobile offers highly sophisticated apps, usually associated with expensive development, that either we can deliver to clients, or by using their toolkit you can build them yourself.  We hope you enjoy the podcast.

Know what your Meetings really cost?

Funny how justifying Meetings costs is a constant battle. But knowing what you are getting for your money is the key. Things can easily be blow out of proportion. Catering, A/V and all the other things that go into meetings.

I do like muffins.

Corporate Meeting AudioVisual Ideas

As a Grass Shack is on the constant look out for cool and engaging things for our clients I thought this also might be a cool outfit for the dance floor at the next RAVE or Burningman you might attend. Seriously, and all kidding aside this is one of the coolest audiovisual performances I have seen. For years Grass Shack usually works on awesome animations and visuals to tell stories keep the audience fired up on the screens in the venue.

Why Promotional Products Work

One of my favorite books this year was Tony Hsieh “Delivering Happiness“.  In the Zappos.com Ceo’s book he talks about how promotions can really help employeees feel part of the team.  At our company Grass Shack Event & Media we give our event staff company polos with our logos at every show.  It gives the event team a feeling of unity.  In our business we heavily utilize freelancers so this is a great way to get everyone on board and ready to roll. I was listening to Marketing over Coffee a marketing podcasts I enjoy, and its sponsor  Gopromos.com  is holding a contest for promotional items.  Go take a look at there webpage.
