First UK showcase of sli.do for Google GlassTwickenham Experience today announces the launch of a series of educational events for event planners entitled ‘Twickenham Talks’. The inaugural event on May 9th - Twickenham Talks: Google Glass, is being organised in partnership with audience interaction specialist sli.do and will focus on Google Glass and its impact on audience interaction. For the first time in the UK, sli.do will showcase sli.do for Google Glass, the first Google Glass app for event moderators. The second Twickenham Talks session, focusing on leadership and change management, will be unveiled soon.
The breakfast event, which will take place in Twickenham’s Live Room tiered auditorium, will follow a round table discussion format examining how Google Glass will impact the events industry and how the sli.do event moderator’s app can be used to improve audience engagement. The invitation-only session will be attended by corporate and agency event organisers who will be given the unique opportunity to get hands-on with Google Glass to facilitate a practical discussion around its impact on events and audience interaction.
Peter Komornik, CEO of sli.do, comments: “We’ve managed to establish sli.do as a leading audience interaction tool over the last two years and we are delighted to announce that we can now extend our app offering to Google Glass.
“There’s been a lot of talk and speculation in the industry about how Google Glass can be used and what sort of impact it will have on events. With this round table we’re giving a selection of planners the opportunity to come and experience the technology up close and discuss the possibilities with their peers and experts. With its dedicated 100Mb bandwidth and high specification technological facilities, Twickenham Stadium is the perfect venue for us to showcase sli.do for Google Glass for the first time in the UK.”
Samme Allen, Head of Conference and Events Sales, adds: “Technology has become a fundamental element to successful events these days and it’s essential that we keep abreast of the latest developments. We are delighted that the first of our new Twickenham Talks sessions is in partnership with sli.do to focus on technology, giving a unique opportunity for planners to get hands on with Google Glass and have an open debate on its potential impact on audience interaction.
“We are looking forward to developing the Twickenham Talks series to create a forum for discussion and learning, helping clients to be at the top of their game when it comes to best practice.”
