ABEE and RSVP take Sydney meetings and events by storm

The Australian Business Events Expo (ABEE) and sister tradeshow RSVP really have put on an impressive show for the meetings and events industry in Sydney. Some of the highlights as seen by Veritas Event Management today were the smooth movements of Aerialize ideal for sprucing up any special event or gala dinner and the great voices and talent behind the team at SMA Productions featuring the Rat Pack and String Diva. Food was circulating about and the master kitchen sessions put on by a great variety of talented Chefs and caterers. Oh and Matt Moran was out and about demonstrating his culinary finesse at his ventures Aria Catering and Opera Point Events. Can we say theming was the theme of the show! So much effort put in to make the show and individual stands look amazing. Great job to all involved and happy lead generation to all exhibitors! Australian Meetings and Events really rock!

Tablet technology is the "events" norm for meetings & conferences

It was not long ago that a few of us were over the moon about utilising online event registration and event text message options to manage communications for meetings, exhibitions and events. Now the norm to make these events, efficient and forward thinking is to utilise all forms of social media which has been revolutionised by the arrival of the tablet. In a recent survey it was mentioned that Apple iPad owners are largely happy with their device and satisfaction levels keep going up - this is also the case for other tablets that have already hit the market. Apparently the trend with most new technology is to decrease in popularity within three months from launch - and as we all know - this is not the case for the iPad. Although Veritas could not get away to attend IMEX, we have been across great feedback on the use of social media platforms and the prolific use of the iPad (or other tablets) for the purpose of doing business, connecting and engaging the audience which is the core purpose of any special events or corporate business events. It will not be long before Veritas is asked to provide specific applications that clients can utilise to their advantage in event marketing at a conference, exhibition, meeting or to provide personalised itineraries for incentive programmes. In your own thoughts...aside from event registration online, the obvious applications, how can we improve a business event by utilising tablets?

Creative Event Concepts Redefine Event Management

Gone are the days of event management limited to a run sheet, timings and written confirmations. Even now in more recent times, event management has been redefined by a new breed of event planner tuned in to the innovative and creative ways to utilise technology and the power of the creative mind. Marketing agencies usually have a team that looks after creative and event management companies should involve every event planner or conference organiser in the process of winning the right to pitch, the actual pitch and ultimately a large events account. The ability to create unique event concepts is an important trait to look for and it is imperative in separating event management companies from the rest. A creative event concept contributes greatly to a pitch sometimes even more so than the "right numbers" on the bottom line. Event management now must utilise modern tools including social media, online x, y and z, event video, webcasting and of course a myriad of mobile applications available to all. None of it would be however possible without the creative thoughts and contributions made by the event planners, event managers, conference organisers and many more contributors in an event management company. So what events manager at corporation "x" has the time or energy to come up with the creative? Thought so. If you are short of time and under resourced, call on the creative minds at Veritas Event Management on 02 8908 5600 or email Kieran for an obligation free "creative meeting" of the minds on journey@veritas.com.au
