Education isn't just for the classroom. Across the country, event coordinators design and host events aimed at instructing industry professionals in the latest skills, innovations and developments in a chosen field. From continuing education classes to company training events, professionals of all backgrounds are continually looking for innovative ways to learn while businesses are looking to train and develop their workforce - with educational events acting as a crucial nexus.
If you were to walk onto a Hollywood movie set 50 years ago, you may have seen a comfortable family living room, western saloon or sunny beach - complete with realistic backdrop and carefully detailed props. Today, you're more likely to walk into an empty box, comprised of green walls, green floor and green ceiling, perhaps occupied by actors dressed entirely in - you guessed it - green.
It's no secret that Apple and its CEO, Tim Cook, have a keen interest in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies - and Cook has only reinforced this impression in interviews. Apple's strategy in this field will generate significant consequences for the event planning and audio visual technologies spaces in the years to come.
So you've planned the perfect event: Designed a top-shelf lighting and effects scheme, invested heavily in your wireless technology, built a top-of-the-line sound system and brought in the best, most compelling speakers, presenters and exhibits. What's the next step for a cutting-edge event?
Presentations and meetings aren't what they used to be - and mostly, that's a good thing. Meetings need to engage and educate everyone present, and a number of new technologies and management systems have now made achieving that goal easier than ever. However, remember the important flip side to this trend: expectations are higher than ever before.
The NABShow (National Association of Broadcaster) took place during the last week of April in Las Vegas and FMAV was there! We walked the tradeshow floor and thought we’d share with you some of what we learned.

During meetings and events, some of your audience's attention will inevitably wander. The key to a successful conference is managing that attention and responding to it.
When we talk about core technologies, we are referring to technological advancement like 4G and LTE networks, technology that powers everything we do. These are technologies that keep us connected and make emergent technology possible and accessible to consumers and event planners. A little more understated at CES 2017 were some key core technologies that are less tangible, but have revolutionary implications on how technology will affect our lives over the next 2 to 3 years, what they are REALLY capable of and how they’ll change the way we power events.
