@NCCmeet Hello. I'm Sarah, marketing manager at The National Conference Center in the Northern Virginia/DC area. #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva A1 No change from a revenue POV, they still want to know they're generating biz #eventprofs
 
@eventleaders Hi Everyone! A little late but Carolyn here on behalf of the Event Leadership Institute. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @NCCmeet Yay Sarah. Glad you're here. Thanks for the fix.#eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @eventleaders Awesome Carolyn. What's your role? #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly @OmniMeetings Q1: clients are looking for a return. On exhibition side, looking for data analysis. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @MeetingsDiva: A1 No change from a revenue POV, they still want to know they're generating biz #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings RT @MeetingsDiva: A1 No change from a revenue POV, they still want to know theyre generating biz #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q1 In my world, less interest in broadcast style events; more in events that support engagement #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva @TRDonnelly Is data harder to get? #eventprofs
 
@gracenote Hi All! Sorry I'm a little late. #eventprofs
 
@ASegar @eventleaders Hi Carolyn! #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @gracenote Hello Grace. So happy to see you again. Thank you for being here. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB Those who just joined. Please introduce yourself and tell us your role if you haven't already #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet It's changing from the ROI of training to ROE - Return on Expectations. What the attendee is expected to accomplish by attending #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly @MeetingsDiva with right tools, clients can access actionable real-time data. The analysis is where mtg professional comes in #eventprofs
 
@gracenote @sullybridgetb I knew your were moderating! Wouldn't miss it!#eventprofs
 
@eventleaders @SullyBridgetB I'm the education director and love to help people get educated about the event industry #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet Hi Adrian! Enjoying your book (finally!) :) #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @eventleaders ELI hey there. I've been learning so much about you. Thanks for joining. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @gracenote :) #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @ASegar engagement is definitely important! How do you also make sure your message is consistently delivered to all attendees? #eventprofs
 
@ASegar It's a long read :-) RT @NCCmeet: Hi Adrian! Enjoying your book (finally!) :)#eventprofs
 
@ASegar By designing engagement into the event RT @OmniMeetings: @ASegar …How do U make sure your [engagement] message is delivered… #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract Hi #eventprofs - Lurking today!
 
@SullyBridgetB @AttendInteract Thanks for lurking. Your input will always be appreciated when you're ready. #eventprofs
 
@gracenote Welcome! RT @attendinteract: Hi #eventprofs - Lurking today!
 
@OmniMeetings @NCCmeet love the term "ROE"! Attendee expectations are definitely an important component. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @OmniMeetings: @NCCmeet love the term "ROE"! Attendee expectations are definitely an important component. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates @NCCmeet I like it return on expectations - I think that is fair.#eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract THANKS! Multi tasking! deadlline is 1PM! RT @sullybridgetb: @AttendInteract TKS for lurking. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @TahiraCreates Hey there lady. Glad you're here. #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva Question: is the economic burden of meeting shifting to the individual attendee? #eventprofs
 
@gracenote Agree RT @tahiracreates: @NCCmeet I like it return on expectations - I think that is fair. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates I don't understand how we have had so many years of meetings where we weren't focused on engaging people #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @TahiraCreates Good point. Seems to be catching up with us... @TahiraCreates #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva Question: what is the difference between entertainment and engagement? #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings Q2: In the age of social media, how can planners continue to encourage face-to-face communication among attendees? #eventprofs

@SullyBridgetB Thoughts? RT @MeetingsDiva: Question: is the economic burden of meeting shifting to the individual attendee? #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva A2 this is easy! Social media BREEDS f2f. Check out 4sq and EventCamp #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @MeetingsDiva I could say I orchestrate the entertainment - the show. Engagement speaks to me as f-2-f interaction/participation. #eventprofs

@OmniMeetings RT @MeetingsDiva: A2 this is easy! Social media BREEDS f2f. Check out 4sq and EventCamp #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet It's human nature that we all want to meet face-to-face. Content can be found online but face-to-face is why they attend #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA Hey Everyone! It's been a while since I've had the chance to join a chat #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet So it's more so important for the planner to set out time for hallway conversations and face-to-face interaction #eventprofs
 
@eventleaders @SullyBridgetB I'm glad to hear that you are into what we are doing!#eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @OmniMeetings: Q2: In the age of social media, how can planners continue 2 encourage face-2-face comms among attendees? #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly Yes. RT @MeetingsDiva: A2 this is easy! Social media BREEDS f2f. Check out 4sq and EventCamp ~ Make Mtgs Relevant #eventprofs
 
@ASegar @TahiraCreates Why no integrated engagement? Hundreds of years of culture about events being places to learn broadcast-style. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @NCCmeet: It's human nature that we all want to meet f-2-f. Content can be found online but face-to-face is why they attend #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @BelindaK_PMA Welcome. Introduce yourself and tell us your role.#eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @MeetingsDiva very true! Location-based platforms make it easy to bridge the gap between online and f2f communication #eventprofs
 
@gracenote RT @nccmeet: So it's more so important for the planner to set out time for hallway conversations and face-to-face interaction #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q2 Social media, in fact, has become a spur to f2f meeting at events. People meet online 1st & then want to meet f2f. #eventprofs
 
@OmniHotelsPR RT @OmniMeetings: Q2: In the age of social media, how can planners continue to encourage face-to-face communication among attendees?#eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @NCCmeet Interesting statement. The other day I personally placed quality of content over f-2-f as I thrive 1st on content... #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates RT @MeetingsDiva: A2 this is easy! Social media BREEDS f2f. Check out 4sq and EventCamp #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @eventleaders Very much so. Looking forward to digging in deeper.#eventprofs
 
@webcaston RT @NCCmeet: So its more so important for the planner to set out time for hallway conversations and face-to-face interaction #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA Belinda - Meeting Manager at Produce Marketing Association#eventprofs

@OmniMeetings Agreed! RT @ASegar: Q2 SM, in fact, has become a spur to f2f meeting at events. People meet online 1st & then want to meet f2f. #eventprofs
 
@CventDG RT @gracenote: RT @nccmeet: So it's more so important for the planner to set out time for hallway conversations &f2f interaction #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA A2: use social media to create hype about your event and get everyone excited for the F2F #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @ASegar: Q2 Social media, in fact, has become a spur to f2f meeting at events. Ppl meet online 1st & then want to meet f2f. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates a2 yes - take me - I liked event Camp TC virtual so much I went f2f in Chicago and in November EC Vancouver... #eventprofs

@NCCmeet @SullyBridgetB That could also be a generational trait. Gen X is data-driven first. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @ASegar Agree with you there. Lots of Tweetups for example.#eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @nccmeet hallway conversation is definitely part of it, but engagement integrated into the programming is key as well #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @BelindaK_PMA Sweet. Join in. #eventprofs
 
@ASegar .@SullyBridgetB Both content & f2f are important. As the former becomes easier to obtain online, the latter's importance grows. #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly A2 a lot of exhibitions use SM during show dates to spur drive in traffic#eventprofs
 
@entBuy @TRDonnelly, Did you see the changes they're making to 4sq? This is going to be HUGE for event planners: http://ow.ly/5K6i0 #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates Content + connection = great event experience #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB Good Point. I'm Old :) RT @NCCmeet: @SullyBridgetB That could also be a generational trait. Gen X is data-driven first. #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet RT @ASegar Social media, in fact, has become a spur to f2f meeting at events. People meet online 1st & then want to meet f2f. #eventprofs 
@MeetingsDiva RT @entBuy: @TRDonnelly, Did u c changes they're making to 4sq? This is going to be HUGE for event planners: http://ow.ly/5K6i0 #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA A2 there is a lot to be said about the excitement experienced when attending F2F that you don't get via SM #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Even better: build engagement into sessions! RT @NCCmeet: …more important 4 planner to set out time for hallway conversations… #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @TRDonnelly Are you finding that Foursquare Gowalla and other check-in tools are being used as well. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB I like that order :) RT @TahiraCreates: Content + connection = great event experience #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract 100% Agree! RT @belindak_pma: A2 there is a lot to be said about the excitement experienced F2F that you don't get via SM #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet Agreed! Time for discussion. RT @OmniMeetings hallway conversation is part of it, but engagement in the programming is key #eventprofs
 
@entBuy @sullybridgetb It's hard to use 4Sq if you're not a venue owner... that's why I'm pleased w/ the changes they're making! #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @BelindaK_PMA yes! F2F meetings provide a deeper level of learning #eventprofs

@SullyBridgetB @MeetingsDiva I want to talk to you later about what changes you're seeing. Yes? We'll touch on it today. #eventprofs
 
@ASegar BTW, anyone going to #wec11: I'm leading a workshop on building participation into conferences sessions. Will repeat in Atlanta. #eventprofs
 
@NCCmeet @SullyBridgetB There's a few more generations above Gen X - you certainly aren't old ;) #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings Q3: What new skills & capabilities will be required of meeting professionals in the near future? #eventprofs
@eventleaders how do you feel about having designated "connectors" at your event?#eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @entBuy Can you clarify? I produced a conference and we incorporated 4Sq booth check-ins. #eventprofs
 
@ASegar I'm in Gen A myself :) RT @NCCmeet: @SullyBridgetB Theres a few more generations above Gen X - you certainly arent old ;) #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates F2F allows you to take the knowledge and connect it with other perspectives - drives retention too. advantage over virtual #eventprofs

@gracenote @SullyBridgetB @entBuy How did the 4SQ booth check-ins work?#eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q3 Meeting professionals will increasingly be asked for facilitation and facilitators of sessions rather than "speakers" #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA A3: need to learn more about adult learning so we can create succesful hybrid events #eventprofs
 
@ExpoQueenUSA RT @TRDonnelly, Did you see the changes theyre making to 4sq? This is going to be HUGE for event planners: http://ow.ly/5K6i0 #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @ASegar What are the dates? I'm producing @IgniteCharlotte event for next two months. #wec11 #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva @OmniMeetings A3 Planners are nothing if not adaptable, but they have to keep ACTIVELY accessing this characteristic. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates Q3. meeting planners already need to know so muchhttp://t.co/bpFJfbW #eventprofs

@SullyBridgetB @gracenote The IT department worked it out and secured a 4Sq badge for the conference. I can go back and send info...yes? #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva RT @TahiraCreates: Q3. meeting planners already need to know so much http://t.co/bpFJfbW #eventprofs

@TahiraCreates q3 so then add in education/edutainment-engagement-nutrition-connection-entertainment-tech-soc med expertise #eventprofs
@eventleaders @SullyBridgetB Not exactly. You have your hosts and then you have connectors or matchmakers setting up conversation "dates" #eventprofs
 
@gracenote Yes! RT @ExpoQueenUSA: A3: I agree with @attendinteract - meeting planners need to embrace technology #eventprofs

@JoanEisenstodt Clearly those who don't interact w/ hotel staff don't have our jobs!http://usat.ly/n6eRSn #eventprofs #ConnectMeetings #meetingsfocus
@SullyBridgetB RT @eventleaders: @SullyBridgetB Not exactly. U have ur hosts & then u have connectors or matchmakers setting up convos "dates" #eventprofs
 
@webcaston But they have to be able to teach and instruct how to use too! @attendinteract - meeting planners need to embrace technology #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q3 Also venue needs are changing. I have an article on this coming out in Hotel Business Review next month. #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA Adult learning may change with new gens entering the workforce - may need to update theories for hybrids to be successful #eventprofs
 
@ExpoQueenUSA A3: Event planners need to sell and educate their sales, marketing, and logistics teams on changing and growing with technology #eventprofs

@SullyBridgetB @eventleaders Gotcha! I see that when I work with PR agency that handles the execs. Would like to explore that notion further. #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva I gotta ask: who are the planners that DON'T get technology?#eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings RT @JoanEisenstodt: Clearly those who dont interact w/ hotel staff dont have our jobs! http://usat.ly/n6eRSn #meetingsfocus #eventprofs
 
@ExpoQueenUSA @meetingsDiva - It is amazing how many event planners still do everything on paper...afraid of change #eventprofs
 
@entBuy @expoqueenusa What doU use to educate your sales, Mkt, & logistics teams? #eventprofs We try 2 stay up 2 date on @Mashable & @linkedin news

@MeetingsDiva Are tech averse planners any age group? any industry? #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @ExpoQueenUSA it's also important to work with the venue's staff on best practices re: technology for the event! #eventprofs
 
@ASegar THX! Since I wrote, 1 more thing 2 add: venues that won't let U post on walls! RT @OmniMeetings: @ASegar looking fwd 2 article! #eventprofs

@OmniMeetings @TRDonnelly agreed, incorporating mobile technologies are a must#eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB To @TahiraCreates point about free wi-fi. We especially need that in the main room: general session space for productions. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates q4 mobile apps - keep it easy for attendees - connection tools poken et al - reg systems that let you pre-meet attendees #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Yes, & facilitate attendee2attendee interaction RT @Gerdie: @ASegar Speakers change…to "performance based on audience answering" #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @ChatterBachs @asegar I like that idea and approach. Using the knowledge in the room is masterful! #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract @entbuy We have had great success using QR codes on e-Posters on site especially at medical shows, the DRS love them! #eventprofs
 
@gracenote A4. Dropbox and free wi-fi everywhere. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB Yes-Today's #smclt mtg topic! RT @TRDonnelly: A4: new tech tools in meeting industry will revolve around mobility (smartphones) #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @entBuy Depends on what you want to do with the QR Codes. One great use is on Business Cards for contact info. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB Big hit! RT @BelindaK_PMA: A4 new tech: I wish more groups would have charging stations at their events! My cell always dies :-( #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates When we were at #AIBTM we had charging station at our booth - well used! and SO SIMPLE to add #eventprofs
 
@ASegar There's lots of research now that learning by participating is far more effective than learning by hearing or watching. #eventprofs
 
@entBuy @attendinteract Interesting! I can see how that would be useful to them.#eventprofs Thanks for sharing!
 
@TahiraCreates RT @CameronToth: @ChatterBachs @asegar I like that idea and approach. Using the knowledge in the room is masterful! #eventprofs
 
@ExpoQueenUSA Put QR Codes on every badge and on every booth, poster displays, etc #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB We've got 15 minutes left to today's #eventprofs chat. Great convo so far. How we doin' @OmniMeetings
 
@ChatterBachs @attendinteract What is BEO? #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @williamevents Hey there William. Great to see you. Thanks for being here. #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings Doing great! Last question: Q5: What will be the biggest challenge for meeting professionals in the next five years? #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @OmniMeetings: @TRDonnelly agreed, incorporating mobile technologies are a must #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @SullyBridgetB All this new technology has to get its energy somehow. Great way to get impressions - Charging Station! #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva @ChatterBachs Banquet Execution Order #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates q4 Ok maybe the wifi can't be free but then can it least be at a sensible/reasonable cost - not mass profit centre #eventprofs
 
@BelindaK_PMA A4 I also wish conv ctr prices for telecom and networking would decrease to help incorporate all the cool new tech #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates RT @ASegar: There's lots of research now that learning by participating is far more effective than learning by hearing or watching. #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @ChatterBachs Banquent Event Order = BEO #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @CameronToth Hey Cameron. Thanks for jumping in. #eventprofs
 
@gracenote @entBuy @attendinteract on business cards instead of bringing so much collateral. Use them on signs next to presentations #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @CameronToth: @ChatterBachs @asegar I like that idea and approach. Using the knowledge in the room is masterful! #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract Sorry, Banquet Event Order RT @chatterbachs: @attendinteract What is BEO? #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @MeetingsDiva Or that too! :-) #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB #heaven RT @gracenote: A4. Dropbox and free wi-fi everywhere.#eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates RT @BelindaK_PMA: A4 I also wish conv ctr prices for telecom and networking would decrease to help incorporate all the cool new tech #eventprofs
 
@ChatterBachs @gerdie Yes. Less scripted. More based on audience needs at present time. Might be different convo a month later. #eventprofs
 
@MeetingsDiva @CameronToth LOL #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @CameronToth @entBuy Important that the QR codes takes you to mobile site correct? #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly Problem with QR codes is how does show management get the activity analysis and reporting? #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q4 Simple things like replacing flipcharts by Google Docs, updated by multiple audience members http://bit.ly/imyDiT #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract I have even seen them on tshirts! RT @gracenote: @entBuy @attendinteract on business cards instead of collateral. On signage #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings RT @ExpoQueenUSA: Put QR Codes on every badge and on every booth, poster displays, etc #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @SullyBridgetB My pleasure. Looking forward to the massive event professional and social media storm this weekend at #WEC11 #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @ASegar: There's lots of research now that lrning by participating is far more effective than learning by hearing or watching #eventprofs
 
@suzannecarawan there are tools for this! @TRDonnelly: Problem with QR codes is how does show management get the activity analysis & reporting? #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates q5 The biggest challenges:selling what works to the clients - internal and external - esp around connection & engagement #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @ExpoQueenUSA Does that create personal space proximity issues? #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @TRDonnelly The QR code is a link. The link can be a bit.ly or ow.ly or any other trackable traceable link. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @OmniMeetings: Doing great! Last question: Q5: What will b the biggest challenge 4 mtg professionals in the next five years? #eventprofs
 
@entBuy w/ all this talk of new technology, have any #eventprofs mastered#GooglePlus for their meetings/events? Or RU waiting 4 business pages?

@ASegar Q4 When you can ask/expect every attendee to bring an Internet-enabled device you can almost eliminate paper. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates q5 Challenge - getting wifi and networks costs in line to incorporate and be able to serve attendee expectations #eventprofs
 
@suzannecarawan a5: not enough case studies or brave guinea pigs out there! need more! #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB A5: For me - managing virtual conferences #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly @suzannecarawan we're working with CoreApps on QR Code solution. They're leaders in mobile space #eventprofs
 
@gracenote RT @OmniMeetings: RT @ExpoQueenUSA: Put QR Codes on every badge and on every booth, poster displays, etc #eventprofs
 
@ChatterBachs @belindak_pma Good suggestion, Belinda. Charging stations could be sponsored like they are at airports. Revenue source! #eventprofs
 
@ASegar RT @TahiraCreates: q5 Challenge-getting wifi & networks costs in line to incorporate and be able to serve attendee expectations #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @BelindaK_PMA: A4 I also wish conv ctr prices for telecom & networking wud decrease 2 help incorporate all the cool new tech #eventprofs
 
@Gerdie @TRDonnelly QR codes (paid versions) come with statistics #eventprofs
 
@ExpoQueenUSA Create a QR with a //bit.ly link so it can be tracked RT @TRDonnelly: Problem with QR codes is how to get activity reporting? #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @ASegar @BrandtKrueger keeping secrets I see :) #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Q5 Responding to the reality that events that rely on speaker-broadcast content will become far less appealing to attend. #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract We provide tracking for our solution RT @trdonnelly: Problem with QR codes is how does show management get the reporting? #eventprofs

@ChatterBachs @belindak_pma It would also be good if free wi-fi were more standard. Another opportunity for sponsorship? #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB Excellent Point! RT @TRDonnelly: Problem with QR codes is how does show management get the activity analysis & reporting? #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @OmniMeetings QR codes are becoming prettier (Case in point:http://ow.ly/5K8tJ ) but I would be careful in using QR #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @TRDonnelly Would that be a question for data analytics type companies or IT department who overseas the show? #eventprofs
 
@ASegar How can we surprise/delight U if we don't have some secrets :) RT @SullyBridgetB: @ASegar @BrandtKrueger keeping secrets I C :) #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @ASegar I like that! #eventprofs
 
@Gerdie @ChatterBachs Yes, speakers will get a harder job to earn their fee...#notbadifyouaskme #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @suzannecarawan Welcome Suzanne. More insight on the tools!#eventprofs
 
@entBuy @sullybridgetb @trdonnelly Not just QR Code Analysis, but all #socialmedianeeds to be tracked by #eventprofs
 
@GPlusUpdate RT @entBuy - w/ all this talk of new technology, have any #eventprofsmastered #GooglePlus for their meetings/events? Or RU waiting ...
 
@BelindaK_PMA Have a good day everyone! I have to head out #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @ASegar Yes! Attendee-driven meetings/events will become more prevalent #eventprofs
 
@entBuy @camerontoth I agree w/ being careful. Unless most attendees are using smart phones, it could be a waste. Depends on crowd demo #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @suzannecarawan: there r tools for this! @TRDonnelly: Prob w/QR codes is how does show mgmt get activity analysis/reporting? #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @sullybridgetb absolutely. Should be something of visual and targeted interest to potential user. #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly @SullyBridgetB if one central entity (show management, etc) controls the distribution of a QR code, then it's traceable #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @entBuy G+ is definitely intriguing. Still figuring it out. #eventprofs#GooglePlus
 
@OmniMeetings 5 more minutes left! Any last thoughts/questions? #eventprofs
 
@ASegar Hangouts are GR8 for organizing! RT @entBuy: …have any #eventprofsmastered #GooglePlus 4 their meetings/events? #eventprofs
 
@TrevorRoald @TRDonnelly Analytics is the main advantages of QR Codes. One client was able to get over 85% completion of their session evals. #eventprofs
 
@SullyBridgetB @TRDonnelly Makes sense. Thank you. #eventprofs
 
@TahiraCreates RT @OmniMeetings: @ASegar Yes! Attendee-driven meetings/events will become more prevalent #eventprofs
 
@TRDonnelly Agree 2 RT @entBuy: I agree w/ being careful on QR codes. Unless attendees r using smartphones, could wasteful. Depends #eventprofs
 
@AttendInteract Great chat as always #eventprofs!
 
@SullyBridgetB RT @Gerdie: @TRDonnelly QR codes (paid versions) come with statistics #eventprofs
 
@Gerdie @ChatterBachs @belindak_pma We (Holland) see more & more mobile branded charging points for all phones as a service on events. #eventprofs
 
@entBuy Last Q: What sorts of entertainment/speakers do you guys host at events/mtgs? #eventprofs speakers? Or commedians/performers? #eventprofs
 
@CameronToth @ASegar Not yet but G+ is a very exciting new product especially since Google seems to be throwing considerable $ and time at it #eventprofs
 
@OmniMeetings @AttendInteract agreed, thanks so much for joining! #eventprofs
