@CentralHall Welcome! Events industry margins are usually very healthy so it's heartening to see a London venue paying staff fairly.

Central Hall Westminster launches Event Technologies Challenged

Following the success of its 2014 Meet the Future - Event Technologies Explored campaign, Central Hall Westminster today reveals a new campaign focused on the challenges of effectively employing event technologies to improve event experience and delegate interaction. The campaign launch follows research showing that 82% of delegates do not fully engage with event content.

Meet the Future - Event Technologies Challenged will be driven by a series of hybrid and live events and social media engagement to ascertain concerns of event organisers and offer ideas and solutions through shared best practice and content. The first event of the campaign will be an interactive hybrid event on February 5th 2015, involving a panel of experts, planners and an online audience with an open discussion about delegate engagement at events. The specific focus for this event will be crowd-sourced, based on the key issues brought to light by event professionals in initial surveys.

Maria Schuett, Marketing Manager at Central Hall Westminster, says: "Meet the Future is about addressing the key challenges, concerns and opportunities for event organisers. Following the success of the 2014 campaign and the overwhelming feedback from delegates at our June interactive conference, our next campaign, Event Technologies Challenged, seeks to delve deeper into how technologies can truly enhance an event experience and become an enabler. In order to do this we need to address challenges and barriers faced by organisers to discover solutions and create new opportunities for richer experiences."

Registration for the upcoming webinar is now open. For further information about the Meet the Future - Event Technologies Challenged campaign, see
