Southwest Showcase employed some shiny new technology at the conference this year, with interesting and instructive results.
Attending Southwest Showcase in Austin, TX last month was an eye-opening affair for this first timer. Some surprising elements jumped out and others were just plain fun at this durable spring event produced by a combination of IME and the careful shepherding by Charles Gattlin. This event was not huge, but still put forth some solid technology for attendees to benefit from and be inspired by.
Regardless of an event’s size or perceived audience ‘tech-savvy’ factor, I want to encourage all of you event organizer types out there to find and implement a mobile app at your next event.
This is what is on many of our minds these days, weighing heavily as we ponder the reality of another great city experiencing random terror and mass killing. We at TeccSociety are part of the worldwide community that stands together against those who would kill indiscriminately and envision a world where violence ultimately isn’t the answer.
