What to expect from the Academic Venue Showcase

The PA Life team are set up and ready to go at today’s Academic Venue Showcase at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, but what should you look out for on the show floor today?

Kicking off the seminars at 11:00 is CEO and Founder of Conference Compass, Jelmer Van Ast, who will be discussing the mobile revolution and how to make the most of mobile technology on the conference floor. Looking to the future, Van Ast will be detailing five of the most important technological developments in recent times, and how event organisers can use them.

12:00 will find David Lovett-Hume taking the stage for a half hour panel discussion on the power of the PA. Lovett-Hume is the Founder and CEO of Asemblr, the event organising company that has just featured as our App of the Week. The panel will include a number of experienced PAs, who will discuss how the role is changing to incorporate the event organiser position.

At 13:00 for 20 minutes, Chief Commercial Officer for Glisser, Jamie Vaughan tackles the General Data Protection Regulation, a new law that is expected to leave a major impact on event management. With a year until the law is implemented, Vaughan will be helping professionals understand how to prepare for the upcoming change and make sure you stay ahead of the game.

The final talk of the day is at 14:00, with Slido’s UK Community Manager Abi Cannons, who will be covering the way presentations are changing to encourage more active participation with the crowd. Showing how meetings and events can evolve through new presentational style, the session will show how to get the most out of your attendees.
