Renowned neuroscientist, Dr Beau Lotto will deliver the first of two keynote presentations discussing his work on Neuro Design, a process for designing communications which allow businesses to connect with customers on a neurological level. Dr Lotto presented at WIRED 2013, has given two TED talks and has been invited to speak at one of Google’s Zeitgeist events, using illusions, games and interaction to engage his audience.
The second keynote will be delivered by BBC technology journalist Kate Russell, who currently appears weekly on BBC2 and BBC World News, reporting for technology programme Click. Russell has been writing and speaking about technology, gaming and the internet since 1995, speaking regularly at technology events and conferences, inspiring the next generation of technologists.
The Meet The Future conference will explore event technology from the perspective of both delegates and organisers. In the morning sessions attendees will be given ‘hands-on’ demonstrations of cutting edge technology, gaining an insight into how it may be utilised by delegates at future events. The afternoon sessions will then focus on live demonstrations of the real-time data collected by key technology in the morning, giving organisers a unique insight into the backend use and benefits with relevant case studies.
Maria Schuett, Marketing Manager at Central Hall and Meet The Future event organiser, comments: “Last year’s conference was a great success and our 2015 event is set to be bigger, more interactive and creatively challenging the norm. We have fantastic keynote speakers confirmed and the breadth of technology that is already in place is very exciting, not to mention our lead sponsors White Light, who will be going beyond the reams of traditional conference AV technology to create a fully immersive conference experience, and creative catering solutions delivered by Kudos.
“We feel it is important to go further than just demonstrating new technology – we’re going to devote the second half of the day to exploring the benefits of event technology from the organiser’s viewpoint, in order to provide a picture of the whole process. Registration is still open, although places are very limited – so get in quick!”
The Meet The Future conference will be delivered in two parts, with those registering given the option to either attend the morning talks and workshops, or to register for the whole day experience.
