Conference technology saves environment and increases engagement




A series of education conferences were recently held in the UK using the latest event technology to reduce delegate travel and improve interactivity and engagement.

The UK Government Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) ran the conferences, which were educating headteachers, principals and senior education managers about a new teaching initiative, the 14-19 year old Diploma – a key part of planned educational reform in the country. 
 
Using a sustainable communication solution, GreenGageLive, the central London conference was linked to two regional venues in Ashford and Oxford, reducing the need for some delegates to travel into London and stay in locations closer to their homes.

The vibrancy of a single-venue event was maintained by linking the venues together in real-time, and used audience engagement technologies so that all delegates could ask questions to ministers, whatever their location.
 
“Communicating education reforms to headteachers and senior education managers is essential to get everyone up to speed at an implementation level.  By using a unique event communication solution, we not only made attending the event easier for people outside of London, but also encouraged two-way dialogue between delegates and government ministers,” said the DCSF’s Ian Valvona. 

“The roadshows have all been powered in this way, making the roll out of future education reform an interactive and sustainable process.”
