becoming part of everyday life! Attendee surveys may become a thing of the past
with this emerging technology. Measure which elements of your event attendees
are enjoying and aspects they are not, all based on their facial expressions.
6. The Internet of Things is continuing to grow across the industry. It’s about
connecting devices over the internet, letting them talk to us, our applications,

such as 'what time is [speaker name] speaking' or answer questions individually.
This brilliant piece of technology will help to create a seamless user experience, and
a memorable one at that!
