Thanks to workspace transformation, meetings with robots, gesture-controlled technology and snack-delivering drones are on the horizon.
Here is some of the weirder, more wonderful tech from the meeting room of the future.
1. Collaborative Technology
‘57 percent of venue operators reported not offering collaborative tech – such as Microsoft’s Surface Hub’, reveals IACC research.
With its multi-touch technology, Microsoft Surface Hub unlocks the power of group synergy. Attendees can use the Surface Hub to share ideas via the digital canvas and take the work with them when they leave.
2. Experiential Environments
75 percent of meeting planners say their current role now involves more ‘experience creation’ than the previous two to five years.
Both venue operators and suppliers are transforming their experiential services. Creative, adaptable meeting rooms have become popular, along with themed food, outdoors spaces and team activities.
