IAPCO 2012


February 2012 for immediate release
Snappy sessions formed a crucial element at the IAPCO Annual Seminar in Wolfsberg this year, introducing the practical applications of Mobile Apps, Print on Demand, Roving Registration, QR, Hybrid Meetings, all linked to the advanced life of events, both initially and their longevity. John Martinez of Shocklogic Global presented the short sharp technology sessions, each day focussing on a different element of current event technology.

The enthusiasm of the participants was immediately obvious by the attendance of the subsequent Tutorials at which smaller groups were able to explore the topics in depth. “Technology moves so fast” said John “that it is difficult in a single presentation to focus on individual elements, so this programme design of “bite-sized” pieces was excellent, with participants able to take away hands-on tips and tricks related to one single IT item per day.   As an invited speaker, I have to commend the new programme design created for 2012″.

Wolfsberg mobile apps, pocket-size voting calculators, video recorded presentations for personal critique, all enhanced the technical experience of the seminar. “IAPCO – an amazing teaching initiative!”, commented one of the dedicated participants on the final day.

The 39th Annual Seminar will take place in Wolfsberg from 19-24 January 2013.
