Over 300 guests from companies such as Juice Live Communications, Time Based Events, MCI and Jack Morton registered for the free event, held in the museum’s famous IMAX cinema. Demonstrations and seminars were hosted by Blitz with speakers from world leading organisations, including YourShow, ArcStream, London Launch and ThinkWall.
Presentations introduced the emergent, cutting-edge products and services being developed for use in live events, as well as talks on the importance of integration to create the most innovative technical solutions for any event organiser’s budget.
Attendees lucky enough to secure a ticket to the strictly limited-space event were treated to an exclusive preview of Google Glass presenter experience technology, YourShow, ahead of its launch in Britain next week.
Guests were given additional hands-on product demonstrations of 'Displaylite' touch tables, giant iPads, RFID based delegate tracking and mobile applications.
Blitz Sales Director Graham Pope says: “The integration of event technologies is core to the future of our industry. It’s about much more than just the AV; at Blitz, we ensure events are optimised through the use of appropriate and cutting-edge products and services. This event enabled us to bring together like-minded professionals to meet industry peers and experience the latest innovations - that’s the Blitz Connection”.
Ash Eldritch, founder of YourShow says: “Google Glass is a very powerful tool with almost endless possibilities. At YourShow, we are delighted to be working with Blitz and developing an application that is specific to the live events sector; integrating it with the technologies that Blitz already offers will result in an extremely unique proposition with quantifiable return on investment. ‘The Blitz Connection’ at the Science Museum was the ideal platform to showcase our developments to an audience of forward thinking event organisers.”
