Michelle Bruno has always been fascinated by ways to organize and think about event technology. When she was recently asked by Event Manager Blog to write about a way to conceptualize the various categories of event tech that an organizer needs to look at in order to devise an appropriate event-technology strategy, she borrowed a well-known Read more about A Breakdown on Event Technology Stacks[…]

Bruno Group Signature Events has been very busy over the summer. Michelle Bruno showed up in blog posts, webinars and print publications talking about event-industry technology.
On March 15, 2012, Michelle Bruno developed and moderated a panel of experts on virtual/hybrid events for the TSNN.com Webinar series. Mary Beth Micucci of HIMSS and Kenji Haroutunian of Neilsen delivered the kind of advice that event planners dream about receiving when it comes to executing a digital conference. At the end of the presentation, Michelle pinned them down (nicely, of course) on some of the tough questions that planners are asking about what’s working and what’s not working.
March was a busy month at BGSE. On March 8, 2012, Michelle delivered a Webinar for the folks at Pathable. Over two hundred listeners joined her to listen in on the strategy, selection and trends around event-related mobile platforms. In a nutshell, strategy is key and should align with the organization’s/event’s strategy; mobile web vs. native app is still a key element to consider when selecting a mobile platform for an event and floor plans, exhibitor directories and conference agendas still dominate the features of most mobile solutions for events. After the Webinar she received several emails and LinkedIn inquiries about specific apps and functionality demonstrating that it’s still a huge issue for event planners and trade show organizers. We can’t imagine it will die down any time soon.

We were pleasantly surprised to learn that Meetings: Review, an industry publication based in the UK, captured segments from a panel discussion that Michelle Bruno participated in on mobile apps for meetings. The session took place during the PCMA Educational Conference in Baltimore, June 22, 2011.
