Well it would appear so from the audience on new Channel  4 comedy game show 'I Don’t Like Mondays' hosted by Alan Carr. Members of the audience compete to win a year's salary but there's a catch: they have to resign from their job on air at the end of the show. There are 3 rounds plus a final in each show with contestants being selected from the audience by Alan and a celebrity guest participating in a series of hilarious games...

We often say that less is more when it comes to event technology and this is a perfect example of that. A large international airline was looking to run a conference for their leadership team to discuss challenges they faced across the company and possible solutions to these. They knew that the people attending were the best placed to not only identify the issues but to solve them as well, they just had to get them talking. They approached Group Dynamics to...

A large financial services company run a pension roadshow around the UK every year. Given previous experience with event technology that did not achieve their objectives, they approached Group Dynamics to design and build a new solution. This needed to be easy for their clients to use as well as capturing as much information as possible to gather insights from the interactions and learn more about their clients’ needs and requirements. The Solution The name badges provided to all attendees included an RFID...

It seems that this is a popular time of the year for people to start doubting the relevancy of the interactive solutions that started “eventtech” all those years ago. Last year, I heard people state that voting/polling was not really used anymore and should therefore not be a key consideration when selecting your on site solution. Following this, we wrote an article about whether we thought this was the case. This year it looks like voting keypads are in the firing...

In response to this hundreds of services and app providers have appeared on the market to satisfy this need, some of these are free whilst others cost thousands of pounds. This...

Have you ever wondered what the biggest cost is when you hold a meeting? There are a number of different expenses to take into account, including room hire, travel, and providing refreshments for everybody. Perhaps surprisingly though, printing tends to be one of the highest bills. The volume of things that need to be printed, from notes to handouts and even voting ballots, accounts to a big outlay. This rises depending on how many people are attending. A better option,...

A child walks into class and states he believes the earth is flat. What do you think the teacher should do?   Most people would surely think the teacher should engage in a conversation with the child providing counter-arguments, views and evidence and hope to persuade the child their opinion was incorrect. They wouldn’t think an appropriate response would be to point the child towards the Flat Earth Society’s website. However, that is exactly how current algorithms and Artificial Intelligence ‘help’ us on Facebook, Twitter,...

At conferences there may be a need to keep votes private, particularly when there is a very important matter to decide. Sadly many systems make it difficult to do this. A show of hands, voicing opinions out loud, and even voting on paper ballots may all be too public. An electronic conference voting system could prove to be a much better option, both in terms of privacy and efficiency. The main aim with asking people to vote is to get their...
