Hawaii Hotel Uses New Meeting App for Convention

Here's an interesting use of technology for business travel: 900 delegates attending a recent convention held at the Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu were presented with an Apple iPod Touch preloaded with a new meeting app developed by PSAV Presentation Services and QuickMobile.

PSAV's event app solution let attendees view their personalized schedules and identify which specific session he or she signed up for based on the time of day; provide maps of and directions to hotel and venue locations (since the facility is comprised of three cluster hotels); upload photos and videos taken on each iPod to a central server; receive messages from event planners informing them of last-minute changes or gatherings; send messages between attendees for reinforced networking and team building; and participate in event-driven surveys.
